Solid Strategies For Alcohol Or Drug-Related Driving Charges
If you have refused a roadside breathalyzer test, are you aware of what consequences you may face? Do you know what grounds a police officer may cite to search and seize items from your vehicle?
Most people do not know the answers to these questions or how the answers apply to their specific situation. As a criminal defence lawyer, I have assisted clients to approach these issues and develop effective defence strategies for any alcohol- or drug-related driving charges.
Whether it’s an infringement of your charter rights and freedoms, police compliance issues or reducing the charges, my firm, Michel Fontaine, Criminal Lawyer, can advise you on:
- What to do when you’ve been charged
- The best defence options and how their outcomes suit your needs
- Your rights and legal obligations involved in impaired driving charges
Proving Reasonable Doubt
It’s the Crown’s job to prove its case against you beyond a reasonable doubt. It’s my job to question if they made their case properly. This is a very unique challenge and I enjoy challenges.
I go over every fact, case law and related legislation with clients to make sure all the charges are relevant, focusing on issues of:
- Search and seizure
- Legal procedures
