Caught Behind the Wheel While Driving Impaired? Don’t Wait. We can help.

When you’re caught drinking and driving, the immediate hire of an impaired driving lawyer should not be postponed. Retaining an experienced impaired driving lawyer early in the process will enhance your chances of beating a DUI related charge. When hired early, an experienced impaired driving lawyer may be able to prepare a better defence to the charge.

Your Advantage to Early Hire…

Your advantage to the early hire of an experienced impaired driving lawyer is that your lawyer will have plenty of time to interview potential witnesses and collect relevant information to help prepare your defence. Witnesses may hold key information, and when an experienced impaired driving lawyer is hired early, these witnesses will be contacted early, while memories are still fresh.

The earlier you retain an experienced impaired driving lawyer, the greater amount of time that the lawyer has to work to request all of the relevant disclosure material (evidence) from the Crown. You also have the right to a speedy trial under the Charter. Should this does not occur, your lawyer may be able to win your DUI charge. If you delay in hiring a lawyer at the earliest stage of the proceedings this can detract from your ability to advance a successful argument based on the violation of your right to a speedy trial if the proceedings are delayed.
