Flight from Police

There are a number of possible favourable resolutions to your situation.  The result of your case will depend on the factual allegations and whether the Crown can prove all elements of the charge.  

If the police are calling (in cases where the suspect escapes), you must speak to a Paralegal before speaking to the police.  They may have no evidence that you are the culprit.

Handgun and  Ammunition

Possession of Weapons

There are many defences available, depending on the circumstances, that can give rise to a finding of not guilty or a withdrawal of the charge.  Plea bargaining is often very successful and can result in charges being withdrawn.

Couple's Shadow

Sexual Assault

If you have been contacted by the police regarding any type of sexual assault contact us.  It is a part of the Police's job to draw out a statement from the person being investigated.  The Police can make false statements to encourage the suspect to answer their questions. YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT! Remain silent and contact us!

If you have been arrested or detained for a sexual assault allegation you have the right to speak to a Paralegal immediately!
