Charged with a criminal offence?
Even though you have a right to reasonable bail, it is possible that you can be detained unless you are released by the order of a Justice in a bail Court.
If you are presumed innocent of an offence and still denied bail, you risk being held in jail until the day your trial is completed.

“Very pleased with the service I received from Lakin.
Had constant contact with him which made me feel much more confident with my defence. Was feeling very insecure heading into this whole process. I outlined to him what I needed regarding an outcome, and he more than surpassed my expectations.
Thank you for your hard work and dedication, Lakin. I will certainly recommend your services to anyone I know who finds themselves in a bind and really doesn’t know where to turn.
