“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.

Woodstock Criminal Defence Charges

As stated by the Criminal Code, a person arrested in Ontario has to be released or brought before a justice within 24 hours of their arrest.

A person charged under the criminal law must be released unless the prosecutor can demonstrate why they should continue to be detained.  In circumstances with more serious charges, the law makes it the job of the criminal defence lawyer to explain why an accused person should be released.

Our Woodstock criminal lawyers can assist you in any criminal charges but we have a strong specialty in the area of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault.

Contact our criminal defence lawyers for help with your specific situation.

Why do I need a criminal lawyer?
Although representing yourself in the court of justice is possible, it is strongly not advisable.  There is a list of complex legal procedures, precedences, and timely options you may not be comfortable with.  Our Kitchener criminal lawyers will support you with their 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 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,

but with 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.
