While not considered serious, minor offences still come with some hefty consequences. That makes it all the more important to ensure they are handled in a timely, appropriate fashion. Providing legal guidance to Ontario residents that have been served with a minor driving offence, contact us today to help protect your rights as a driver.
As your advocate, we want to hear the facts about your case. After conducting extensive analyses considering the possible options moving forward, we will produce a defence determined on providing the best outcome. It is our goal, on behalf of our clients, to outright dismiss a charge and/or to do everything that can be done to mitigate the damage of a conviction.
As paralegals in Ontario we focus on driving offenses and we know the value in having the privilege to drive. There are numerous minor offences out there that can have a negative impact on a person’s privilege to drive. In some cases, one might be subject to a suspension, sometimes temporary for 24 hours and, in many cases, far longer. Then, there are fines that may equate to hundreds of dollars. There’s also the risk of imprisonment and a lengthy suspension of license.
Since 1990, we have successfully defended countless minor driving offence cases. Minor offences may vary from disobeying traffic lights and signs, to obstructing traffic, unauthorized entry of a vehicle, property damage relating to a traffic accident, intimidation-related use of vehicles, and failure to comply. They are not to be taken lightly and an admission of guilt on these charges can have a long-term impact on one’s ability to drive and their insurance premiums. Before deciding on paying a fine or admitting guilt, consult with a legal professional first.
Thankfully, in many cases, a minor offence charge can be successfully argued. There’s no reason not to do so and having an Ontario traffic ticket defence team at your side increases the chances of having a charge dismissed or significantly reduced. Just think about all the times you use a vehicle to get around and all the different responsibilities you have that require a vehicle. Now, imagine losing that. That is a huge disruption to a household. In extreme cases, it might even result in loss of income and/or employment. The day to day tasks that we take for granted with a vehicle suddenly become more difficult. All of this makes it of utmost importance to ensure the right strategies are being used to maximize every available opportunity to achieve a successful defence.
