Our team of criminal lawyers at Aitken Robertson represents clients charged in Peterborough, Cobourg, Port Hope, Brighton, Lindsay (City of Kawartha Lakes) and Minden. Our criminal lawyers are available to review your case at our conveniently located office in Peterborough as well as at locations throughout Ontario. 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.
