Criminal law involves offences committed against the public. Unlike civil cases, which deal only with private disputes, criminal offences are specifically designed for charges made against an individual by the government represented by Crown Counsel. The Crown is required by law to prove a charge beyond a reasonable doubt and you have the right to remain silent. In other words, you have no obligation to offer assistance to the Crown’s case. In many cases, you are protected under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms against intrusion of privacy and unreasonable search and seizure.
When you are arrested by the police, or when you are charged of an offence by the government, you cannot take it alone. We are here to offer our help, as we are experienced in dealing with the prosecutors and defending your case in court.
