"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.

Criminal Lawyers in Kitchener

If you are wanted by the police or considering turning yourself to the authorities, our Kitchener criminal lawyers are available 24 hours a day to assist you in any criminal offences.

If you are arrested by police, the criminal justice system requires that the police offer free access for you to call a lawyer of your choice.  Choosing the right criminal lawyer can often mean the difference between a criminal conviction and freedom.

Why do I need a criminal lawyer?

Although representing yourself in court is possible, it is strongly advised that you seek a qualified criminal lawyer.  There are many complex legal procedures, precedences, and options you may not be comfortable with.  Our Kitchener criminal lawyers will support you with the utmost attention and walk you through a strategic plan that best fits your current situation.

When do I need a criminal lawyer?

If you have been arrested or pressed charges, you should call a criminal lawyer immediately to reduce the impact of the offenses.  The earlier we can touch base on your case, the better the result.  A simple call early in your position may save thousands of money, time and even prevent a charge to evolve into a criminal offense.  We provide criminal legal assistance 24/7 hours a day and encourage you to call us.

What is a bail hearing?
A bail hearing is not considered a trial but rather a way for you to show the Judge or Justice whether or not you should have an option of entering back into society while your case will remain in the criminal court.  In the Ontario Court of Justice, you only get one bail hearing and if you're denied bail, the Judge will hold you in custody until your criminal case has been resolved in a trial.  We strongly suggest you call our Kitchener criminal lawyers when proceeding with a bail hearing to maximize your chances of a successful bail hearing.

"I was looking at a conditional discharge.

Lakin’s smooth talking and on point argument the Judge gave me an absolute discharge, Lakin made some excellent points that I believe the Judge looked into and helped make his final decision.

Thanks, Lakin for your incredible service.
