If you or someone you know is charged with a crime in Canada, a conviction can have serious life-altering consequences. In addition to possibility of jail time, a criminal record may:
- Make you ineligible for future jobs;
- Bar you from traveling outside of Canada;
- Render you ineligible to sponsor your spouse/children to Canada;
- Put at risk your permanent residency or citizenship status.
The choice of the right lawyer can affect the rest of your life. It is the most important decision that you can make, and finding the right fit is not a simply a matter of money or convenience.
Entrust your criminal matter to me, and I will make sure that your interests are looked after. I will fight as much as I can to get the outcome you deserve.
If you have previously been convicted of a crime, you may be eligible for a pardon (now called Record Suspension). Generally, if it has been 5 years since your conviction for a Summary Conviction Offence or 10 years for Indictable Offence, then you can apply for a Record Suspension to remove your criminal record.
