Impaired Driving

Impaired Driving doesn't mean intoxication, only that your ability to drive was impaired due to the consumption of alcohol

Drive Over 80

Breathalyzer readings and test results that are collected improperly can result in charges being dismissed by the court.

Refuse Breathalyzer

Police have an obligation to ensure the accused understood the breath demand and implications of not providing a breath sample.

Dangerous Driving

Most motor vehicle accidents are not dangerous driving. There must be intent to commit the dangerous driving, not a mistake in driving.

DUI Charges

There are many defences to DUI charges. Avoid a criminal record and losing your drivers licence. We have a winning defence for you.

Fail to Remain

Never make statements to police. The police need to prove who the driver was. Don't help them prove the case with identity evidence.

Drive Disqualified

The crown will ask for 90 days in jail, believing the accused disobeyed a judges order prohibiting them from driving a motor vehicle.

Sexual Assault

Allegations and media exposure can be debilitating. Speak to us about Publication Bans and let our lawyers appear in court for you.


Even a minor conviction carries a criminal record that can affect immigration status, employment and your livelihood in Canada.
