If you face criminal charges, you are at grave risk of losing your freedom, in many ways (e.g., jail, fine, criminal record, decreased ability to travel, barrier to employment, loss of employment, etc). Since the risk is so great, our criminal justice system affords every accused certain rights and protections:
At the heart of a free and democratic society is the liberty of its subjects. Liberty lost is never regained and can never be fully compensated for; therefore, where the potential exists for the loss of freedom for even a day, we, as a free and democratic society, must place the highest emphasis on ensuring that our system of justice minimizes the chances of an unwarranted denial of liberty.

We represent individuals accused of any criminal offence (not just those listed on this website).
