Bail hearings are an integral part of any criminal defence. If you are charged and are denied bail, it can result in months or even years of being deprived of your liberty – all without a trial. Because of that, it is extremely important that persons charged with an offence speak to legal counsel as soon as possible after being arrested. Although the Crown usually bears the burden of proving that an accused person should not be released on bail, people are sometimes denied bail because they do not know what to tell a Judge or Justice of the Peace to argue for their release. Having an experienced defence lawyer on your side in a bail hearing will ensure that the Judge or Justice of the Peace has all of the information that they need and increases your chances of being released prior to your trial. We are experienced defence advocates who can help you secure your release.
