Being accused of a crime can be an extremely stressful experience. Before you step into a courtroom, you need to understand your fundamental rights in order to ensure the best outcome in your case. In Canada, you are innocent until proven guilty and proving someone’s guilt in a court of law is not as easy as you might think. The rules and procedures are there to protect you, if you are facing criminal charges, do not assume that you will be convicted. A criminal charge is an unproven accusation. Sometimes accusations cannot be proved, in which case the charges must be dismissed. The best way to understand your rights and to formulate a winning defence is to speak to our lawyers who have knowledge and experience in the areas that most affect you.
