Vancouver Criminal Defence
Criminal defence is an important field for a number of reasons. If defendants did not have the right to legal counsel when arrested for or suspected of committing a crime, there would be nothing to prevent the criminal legal system from convicting anyone it wanted to. Fortunately, the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms grants a defendant the right to legal counsel. If you are facing a criminal matter of any kind, it is important that you exercise this right and consult an lawyer as soon as possible. Your criminal defence lawyer will play an invaluable role in defending your rights and offering you the full protection that our legal system has to offer.

KNOW YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
“Officer, I know my constitutional rights. Firstly, I refuse to speak with you, other than to identify myself. I further refuse to consent for you to search my person, or my residence, or my motor vehicle. I wish to speak to my lawyer immediately. If I am not under arrest, I wish to leave.”
Know your legal rights. Everyone who is detained or arrested has the right to retain and instruct counsel without delay and to be informed of that right by the arresting police officer.
