Impaired Driving Defence

Impaired Driving/Over 80 or "DUI" charges are the most common reason that ordinary citizens come into contact with the criminal justice system. Being charged and convicted with a drinking and driving offence can have drastic consequences to a person's life and liberty. A criminal record, a mandatory fine and a driving prohibition are among those consequences.

If facing such a charge, it is essential to have someone in your corner who knows the law of impaired driving, someone who will look for creative legal defences including Charter of Rights motions to exclude evidence. My commitment to you is to look for those defences and make them work to your advantage. Find out more here.
