Our team of criminal lawyers at Aitken Robertson represents clients charged in the Lindsay area and all of the Kawarthas.

We offer a free initial consultation, flexible weekend and evening hours, and reasonable payments plans with no interest costs. We do not bill clients for travel expenses.

After accepting your case, through careful examination of the facts, we will establish whether there are grounds to have your charges dismissed for legal or technical reasons. We will also determine if there has been a violation of your rights guaranteed under the Canadian Charter of Rights & Freedoms. A thorough investigation can mean the difference between:

  • having the charges dropped or going to trial;
  • receiving a guilty verdict or a not-guilty verdict;
  • a poor plea bargain, or
  • a favourable one.

Some of our lawyers are trained Breath Techs, which allows great insight into the proper operation of breath testing instruments in drinking and driving cases.

The Lindsay Courthouse

Lindsay Courthouse Location

440 Kent Street West

Lindsay Courthouse Phone Numbers

Main number: 705-324-1400 (Other court offices can be accessed using the voice prompts and menu.)

Lindsay Courthouse Hours

Monday – Friday: 8:30AM – 5:00PM

Where To Park

If you are arriving by car, there is ample parking at the Lindsay Courthouse surrounding the entire building. Parking is free during court hours.

Where To Eat

There are many restaurants and fast food chains down Kent Street West. Unfortunately if you are not travelling by car, Kent Street is not only too busy to cross safely, but many of the restaurants are quite the distance from the Courthouse.

If you suspect you’ll be at Court most of the day, it may be best to bring some snacks or a lunch. There is one vending machine located in the front lobby, but not much more to sustain your hunger.

Entrance

There are various entrances at the Lindsay Courthouse, but the main entrance faces the street and is easily distinguishable from the rest. If you are attending Lindsay Court for your first appearance, it is best to enter through this door since first appearances which are almost always held on Thursdays, are typically in Courtroom 1 which is directly right of the main entrance.

Lindsay Courthouse can be difficult to navigate if you have never been, but the administrative staff is friendly and helpful.

Additional Information

Lindsay Court begins at 9:30am for criminal matters and 9:00am for POA matters.

All Lindsay matters (including Superior Court matters) are heard at the 440 Kent Street West location. On some occasions, Peterborough and Cobourg matters will also be held in Lindsay Court, depending on court availability.

Recently, all POA matters from the Haliburton region have been moved to the Lindsay Courthouse. Some criminal matters from the Minden Courthouse will also be traversed to the Lindsay Courthouse depending on the status of the file. The Lindsay Crown Attorneys also service the Minden area, so the two are easily interchangeable.

I had my first trouble with law couple of months and we found Edmund Chang. He helped me through all the process professionally moreover, he really cares about my best interest, he will check if I comfortable with all decisions we were going to make and if not, he will not push it. Other things that really stand out, he is approachable as well as responsive to follow up. In the end, we settled the case and I can move on.read more

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 learned.read 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 everything.read 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 again.read more

When my daughter's boyfriend had a problem I looked up Jordan Tekenos-Levy. Jordan did an amazing job defending this young man. He showed compassion and care in a very sensitive issue. Jordan is a great lawyer, he fights hard for his clients and ensures their loved ones are kept in the loop during the entire process. He is honest and doesn't sugar coat the situation. I would highly recommend his services. We owe him a huge debt of gratitude and I wish him all the best in the future.read more

I was falsely accused of a crime and I sought out representation. I did not know exactly where to go, I was in a panic as I've never seriously run afoul with law enforcement. Mr. Nathan Baker and his staff were assigned to my case, and I am thankful that they were. Knowing I was innocent I still was worried about how everything was going to play out as I wondered 'how could this even be happening'. Mr Baker and his staff helped walk me through the court process that was completely unfamiliar to me, besides what Id seen on television. It was a two year process, and every step of the way all my questions and inquisitions were answered and put at ease. I give this Firm my full endorsement, they believed in me, supported my case and followed through on every detail pertaining to it, and defended me to a correct Not Guilty verdict. For that I will be forever grateful. I've never had the need for an attorney to represent me before the false accusation, and I hope I never need it again. But if I do, I'd want this firm to represent me.read more
