Aitken Roberston Criminal Law Office in Lindsay

Located only 2km east of the Lindsay courthouse, the team at Aitken Robertson combines the experience of ten lawyers to defend those charged criminally in the Kawartha region. If you’ve been charged with a criminal offence in the Kawartha region contact our office for a free 30 minute consultation, during which we’ll discuss your case, our options to defend you, and provide you with the cost of the defence. If you’re unable to make it to the office we also offer consultations over the telephone.

Aitken Robertson proudly offers a flat fee billing system. We’ll tell you the entire cost of your defence up front before you’ve hired us, so you don’t have to worry about changing costs as your case progresses. We also offer interest free payment plans, in recognition that it can be difficult to pay legal fees in one lump sum. Our team will work with you, in consideration of your financial situation, to come up with a plan that helps you afford quality legal service.

  • Driving Offences: including driving under the influence, criminal negligence in the operation of a motor vehicle, dangerous driving, stunt driving;

What One of Our Lindsay Clients Has Said About Us

What One of Our Lindsay Clients Has Said About Us

“I was faced with several criminal charges, and dealing with substance abuse issues for which I am receiving treatment. During this time I had to be off work. Aitken Robertson have always been very understanding and supportive during this very difficult time and I felt very comfortable speaking to all members of the team. I was allowed to reduce my payments whilst in treatment. All the staff have always treated me with respect and dignity and I would recommend the services of Richard Aitken and his team to anyone facing criminal charges.”

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is there parking at the Lindsay courthouse?

    There is limited parking at the courthouse itself, but there is parking next door at the grocery store.

  • Where can I get something to eat near the courthouse or Aitken Robertson?

    Near our office there’s a Tim Hortons on the other side of the intersection of Kent St and Victoria Ave. Just down the road on Kent St you’ll find a Pizza Pizza and several local eateries. Just across the road from the Lindsay Court House is a Boston Pizza, a Popeyes, and a Pizza Hut. There is a Loblaw’s grocery store next door.

  • I can’t afford the cost of a lawyer, what are my options?

    We offer a no interest payment plan that we personalize based on your financial needs. If it would be difficult for you to pay legal fees in one lump sum don’t worry, you can pay a small amount over a length of time instead.

  • I work until 5pm, can I do a consultation after 5pm?

    Absolutely. While our offices normally close at 5pm, we recognize that for many people a meeting time during working hours can be difficult. If you need special accommodations for a consultation let us know and we’ll try to schedule an afterhours telephone consultation.

  • I can’t miss work for court, do I have to take time off?

    Of course not! Once you’ve signed the paperwork permitting us to appear as your representative in court we can speak on your behalf and you’re not required to go in. There are exceptions, for example if you’ll be pleading or the case goes to trial, but we’ll discuss all of this with you and give you notice if you’ll need to be in court.
