If I am charged with Impaired Driving, Over 80, or Sample refusal, do I need to hire a lawyer?

In Ontario, drinking and driving constitutes one of the most complicated and challenging areas of criminal law. In order to fight any of these charges, you need a thorough understanding of the Criminal Code of Canada, the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the Highway Traffic Act, and an up-to-date knowledge of precedents and case law. The law in this area changes all the time.

If you choose to represent yourself in an Ontario drinking and driving case, your chances of success are much lower because chances are you do not have the necessary knowledge of these areas. A top Ontario criminal defence lawyer will be able to make arguments effectively and on your behalf – saving you a great deal of frustration.
