Criminal Law & Regulatory Offences
Desmarais Keenan LLP is excited to provide legal consultation and defences to those individuals facing charges under the Criminal Code and the Provincial Offences Act.Practicing Lawyers
A conviction under the Criminal Code can have life changing consequences. On conviction a person can suffer incarceration, the loss of a job, financial hardship, and lose liberty, privileges and rights that many of us take for granted. As such it is critical that those individuals facing criminal charges receive sound legal advice and representation in Court. Jordan A. Derro is ready to serve clients who find themselves facing all manner of charges under the Criminal Code and related statutes, including but not limited to:
- Assault and sexual assault;
- Controlled Drugs and Substances Act Offences;
- Impaired Driving;
- Firearms Offences;
Provincial Offences Act charges are regulatory offences under provincial statues and municipal by-laws. Individuals and businesses facing regulatory offences may be subject to significant fines and even imprisonment and the quasi-criminal treatment of regulatory offences means that something as simple as a speeding ticket can result in a person being put to trial. Jordan A. Derro also provides consultation and defences in relation to charges under such provincial statutes as:
- The Highway Traffic Act;
- Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act;
- Occupational Health and Safety Act;
- Trespass to Property Act;
- Environmental Protection Act;
- Fire Prevention and Protection Act;
Individuals facing Provincial Offences Act charges have rights. If you have been charged with a regulatory offence do not hesitate to contact our offices for a consultation.
