What One of Our Toronto Clients Has Said About Us

What One of Our Toronto Clients Has Said About Us

I was charged with over 0.80 and Impaired Driving charges. I didn’t think I had any chance, but Justin Marchand 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • I’m worried that my case can’t be won. Should I bother hiring a lawyer?

    Absolutely, do not make any rash decisions until you’ve consulted with a lawyer. You have a Charter protected right to retain and instruct legal counsel upon detention and it’s important for you to exercise that right. Our lawyers will look at the facts of your case, the evidence the Crown has, and your circumstances, and give you a clear and honest opinion about the outcomes you can expect. You might be worried that your case can’t be won because of the evidence they have, but our team might be confident that evidence can be excluded for violations of procedure when it was gathered.

    We can get started on this through a free 30-minute consultation, so call us at (416) 507-0906 so we can start building your defence sooner rather than later.

  • I can’t make it to your Toronto office for a meeting before 5:00pm, can we still have a consultation?

    Absolutely, we don’t want people in need to think we won’t help them simply because of a scheduling conflict. Talk to us about your circumstances and we’ll discuss accommodations, like a telephone or video consultation after 5:00 p.m.

  • I can’t make it to a Toronto court date, what do I do?

    You may not even need to go to court most of the time once you’ve hired a lawyer. In many cases your lawyer acts on your behalf, and unless the court specifically requires you to be present (for example, to sign a peace bond or if a trial commences) we can go for you. If the court requires you be present and you can’t make it for extenuating circumstances, like a family or medical emergency, let us know and we will speak with the Crown about adjourning until you’re able to be present.
