Knowledge and Experience. When You Need it Most.
When you or someone you care about is dealing with criminal law issues, timing is critical. Decisions are made in the first few hours after an arrest and statements are taken that will dramatically affect the outcome of the trial, which can be months or even years away.
Nothing is more urgent than obtaining legal counsel to protect your rights and assist you in obtaining a speedy and reasonable bail.
Why You Need Your Own Lawyer for a Bail Hearing
Under the criminal code, the person charged should be taken in front of a judge or Justice of the Peace for a bail hearing within 24 hours. The reality is sometimes a little different. Courts are overloaded and while there are excellent lawyers within the duty counsel system, they are trying to deal with and assist everybody who is unrepresented.
Don’t Spend Time in Jail If You Haven’t Been Convicted
Obtaining your own counsel, focused only on you and your rights, can ensure that your bail hearing happens as early as possible. A delayed or poorly run bail hearing can mean weeks or even months spent in jail without ever having been convicted of a criminal offence.
