For most people, driving is an essential part of daily life. The prospect of losing the right to drive as a result of a criminal conviction can be a source of tremendous anxiety and stress. Losing the right to drive not only impacts your life, it can also impact your family, your career and your reputation in the community.

Suspended Licence Lawyers Serving Pickering, Ajax and Whitby
Our lawyers have experience defending clients against numerous charges that fall under the category of driving offences, including:
- Impaired Driving
- Dangerous Driving and Flight From Police
- Provincial Offences Act violations
- Driving suspended
- Driving disqualified
- Failure to remain at the scene of an accident
- Criminal negligence causing death or bodily harm
Many of these charges may have serious penalties attached to them. A conviction under some of these offences can result in a suspension of your licence, a hefty fine and even jail time. This can have a serious effect on your job, your personal life and your future employment prospects. Regardless of the magnitude of your charges, our lawyers take the time to listen to your story and understand your situation.
If you have been charged with a driving offence, you should be aware of the implications. Several Highway Traffic Act offences occur concurrently in the Criminal Code. Many people do not realize that a police officer may lay charges against you under both the Highway Traffic Act and the Criminal Code at the same time. Defending these types of cases requires a thorough understanding of the law and the technicalities of the charge. If you have been charged with any of these offences, it is important to speak to an experienced criminal defence lawyer as soon as possible.
