Schedule 30-Minute Consultation

Were you in or near beautiful Bancroft when you were charged with a DUI offence such as impaired driving or over 80 or any other criminal offences?

If so, your case will be heard in the Bancroft court. Yes, Bancroft has a courthouse! It is located at 5 Fairway Blvd, Bancroft. That’s just beside the Canadian Tire. While it’s true that this is not a very big courthouse (it has just the one courtroom), you can be sure that your case will be conducted the same way as it would be in any court in Ontario. However, each court has its own particular internal practices and that’s true of Bancroft as well. So, if you have a criminal matter scheduled in the Bancroft court you should consider having a lawyer that knows that court, and of course also knows the law relevant to your charges.

We are the lawyers of the criminal law firm of Aitken Robertson. We represent criminally charged people throughout Ontario, including in Bancroft.  We are familiar with the Bancroft court and its judges and Crowns. If it was a drinking and driving offence that you were charged with, consider that some of our lawyers are trained “Breath Techs,” which allows great insight into the proper operation of the breath testing instruments used in DUI/drinking and driving cases. And, when you hire Aitken Robertson, you get the benefit of the combined knowledge and experience of a whole team of lawyers. Because of the shared knowledge base of our team, we have the ability to competently represent people on a wide variety of criminal matters, including:

Currently, due to the pandemic restrictions we can only meet with you by telephone, but once the restrictions are lifted, we will be able to review your case at one of our convenient offices or meeting places throughout southern Ontario. We offer a free 30-minute initial consultation during which we can discuss your case, including possible outcomes and we can give you a fee quote that we will stand by. We use block fees rather than an hourly fee billing system and we do not bill clients for travel expenses and we will not nickel and dime you over disbursements such as postage and photocopying. We offer, flexible weekend and evening hours, and reasonable interest-free monthly payments plans.
