Vancouver Criminal Law – BC Criminal Court Procedures
Being charged with a criminal offence is likely one of the most stressful events someone will face in their lifetime. The consequences that can follow as a result of being convicted or pleading guilty can be very significant. A criminal record can limit one's ability to secure employment and to travel freely inside Canada and abroad. It is very important that you at least consult with a lawyer who has the expertise in the area of law you are charged with so that your rights are fully protected before you are compelled to step into that courtroom.
