If you’re a lawyer and you have impaired driving, over .08 or refusal case and you think that a second set of eyes could help, you just need to pick up the phone.
We provided assistance for lawyers across Canada with impaired driving cases. The defences in impaired driving cases are a moving target. On the one hand there are new decisions coming out all of the time which are often difficult to reconcile. But even if you’re up to date on the published case law, chances are that advances in the science of breath testing and changes to police breath-testing equipment and procedure have left you scratching your head, wondering if you’ve got a defence for your client or found the right defence.
We want you to succeed in court and we want you to get the right result for your client. This is why we provide impaired driving consulting for lawyers. Often we can find a strong defence that you may have never considered to get your client through a tough case with the right result.
Our process helping lawyers with impaired driving case
As with any of your clients, we need to speak with you. It’s an easy phone call that we hope will put your mind at ease. We know that these cases are often difficult, but we’re here to help. Once we’ve discussed it and we know where you are in the timeline leading up to trial, you then send us the disclosure you’ve got at the time by PDF or fax. We’ll read it, pass it around the office and brainstorm ideas and strategies you may want to consider. Then we’ll talk to you again, usually within a couple of days.
As you know, sometimes the answer comes to you at 3:00 a.m. when you can’t sleep. We’re the same way, but on top of that we’re a hotbed of creative ideas in this area of law and we have fantastic resources at our hip.
We want you to succeed
We provide impaired driving consulting for lawyers because we want you to succeed for your clients. We hope to enhance good defences in impaired driving cases by making sure you know how to get the job done. When you conduct your case to the right result, you protect and enhance the integrity of the defences in impaired driving cases. Your success helps all of us who defend drunk driving cases and advances the cause of justice.
We’ll tell you our ideas. We won’t charge anything unless we find something that you feel will be fruitful in the defence of your client and we can agree on what further work we can do on your file. And even then, we’re still inexpensive.
What we can do
We do everything from case analysis, educating you, research and preparation of authorities and scientific articles, providing guidance on disclosure requests, analysis of technical materials, locating witnesses for specific issues, drafting cross examination of key witnesses, ghost writing written arguments and even attending the trial with you.
Why should you speak to us?
- It’s in the best interest of your client to know as much as possible about the defences available in the case.
- Due diligence requires that you make sure you identify the defences and prepare for them.
- You never know what you don’t know until it’s too late.
- You never know what you don’t know until you speak to someone who knows.
We’re easy to speak to. We find that lawyers who call us often tell us that they were reluctant to call because they thought we’d be all snooty. Not the case. We love to talk to lawyers (and clients) about their cases. Also we learn a lot speaking to lawyers from across Canada so we become a repository of unusual and useful information. We need you too!
We provide impaired driving consulting for lawyers because we want criminal lawyers to be really good at what they do.
We’re here to help and we’re happy to talk to you about your client’s case.
