At Aitken Robertson our criminal lawyers firmly believe that an exhaustive investigation by quality experts is indispensable.

“A thorough investigation is usually the difference between a guilty verdict and a not-guilty verdict or non-favourable plea bargain agreement and a favourable plea bargain agreement,” says Richard Aitken. It is during this time of thorough investigating that Aitken Robertson will discover evidence that would be used in any prosecution. Your case will be reviewed for possibilities to exclude police evidence or dismiss of the Crown Attorney’s case for legal or technical reasons. Also, we ensure your Charter of Rights and Freedoms were not violated.

During all stages our lawyers stay in contact with you, having convenient office hours and returning phone calls promptly. We will appear in Court on your behalf so you do not miss time at work. We understand that having a good lawyer also means that we carry out the lawyer’s role as a counselor and advisor, especially when a client has had no experience with the criminal justice system. Once completed, whether it is a long jury trial, a plea bargain agreement or a complicated appeal, you will know that you have had a diligent and dedicated team representing your interests.

“Each client will receive our individual attention and our best possible defence,” said Aitken. “Our job is to attack the Crown Attorney’s case from all sides so we can make reasonable doubt in the mind of the Judge or Jury – leading you to having the charge dropped or dismissed.”

I was charged with over 0.80 and Impaired Driving charges. I didn't think I had any chance, but Justin Marchant managed to get me out with a careless driving charge. Thanks to him, I don't have a criminal record!!! Very friendly, sharp, professional, and dedicated individual. He did a great job prepping me for the trial, and prepping for the case. I highly recommend this firm, as if it wasn't for them, I'm not sure what would have happened to my life. I made a nasty mistake, one which I will never ever make again. Some lessons have a big price to be more

Mr. Marchand is an amazing lawyer. He is very personable and professional. My case was a very long and drawn out case, but Mr. Marchand always kept up with everything and I was always well informed. I really appreciated that he would take the time to fully explain his thought process/strategy and was never condescending. Even though this was a stressful time, Mr. Marchand made it a great experience and took care of more

Once again amazing ! I am writing this review as I always refer my friends to this firm. THEY ARE THE BEST ! My friend was pulled over at the us border on a random check and in turn got charged with a refusal. My friend did not know that refusing to take a breathalyzer was a criminal offence. In fact as soon as he realized it he asked the officers to take it but they refused him. In turn he was charged with a refusal. Aitken Robertson specializes in DUI and cases such as this.. so it was an immediate call to them that i put in for him. Right then and there they took over. As usual, they offered a payment plan and of course they took care of everything all the pre-trial meetings etc. Justin was the laywer for him and not only is he the MOST thorough he is the most out for justice. He found the errors that the officers made and he used it to my friends advantage. He went above and beyond to find the best resolution with the crown. He went above and beyond to give my friend all his options. And the best part is that NO CRIMINAL CHARGES. It was reduced basically down to a speeding ticket as a result of Justins hard work. The whole firm is stellar. They take time to go through your disclosure to confirm any and all details are correct.The justice system is a corrupted one and im thankful these lawyers know how to find a way to help us through that. Justin once again did an amazing job. Susan at the firm is great she helps out with payment plans etc. Brenda is great. Robert of course its just a great team of laywers. Do not go anywhere else ! I will recommend them time and time more
