Call Us To Discuss Your Ticket
Whether you live and work in the Cobourg area, are a student at Fleming College, or have been stopped by the Ontario Provincial Police or municipal police while passing through the area, our team is here to help you. OTD Legal Services assists defendants just like you every day in protecting their legal and driving interests. Our team can assist you if you are a commercial motor vehicle driver concerned about CVOR points and employment repercussions, or if you are a regular driver concerned about the impact to your licensing and insurance rates.
Many drivers in Ontario simply plead guilty to their charges without understanding the repercussions to their conviction. A guilty plea to a Highway Traffic Act or Compulsory Automobile Insurance Act offence will result in a record of conviction being placed onto your driving record. A conviction may also result in a demerit point penalty and a licence suspension from either the court or the MTO. Very serious offences can also result in a jail term being issued against you. Fines issued by the court can range from a minor fine under a hundred dollars up to a severe fine in the tens of thousands of dollars.
Fortunately our team can generally gather your case details and provide you with the basic information you need to make an educated decision in as little as 10 to 15 minutes. We offer a no cost, no obligation initial review by calling our toll-free number at 1-866-591-9206, via email [email protected], online at https://www.otdlegal.ca/contact, or at any of our offices in person. Generally it is cost effective to hire a licensed paralegal to protect your interests at court rather than simply pleading guilty or attempting to provide your own defence at court without the necessary legal knowledge.
Our friendly team has experience representing defendants with simple offences such as speeding, disobey stop sign, amber or red light fail to stop, operate motor vehicle with no licence, failure to surrender insurance card, change lane not in safety, or failure to drive within a marked lane. Our team also has the necessary knowledge and experience to protect your interests in much more serious matters involving charges such as operate motor vehicle without insurance, driving under suspension, fail to stop for school bus, failure to remain at the scene of a collision, or careless driving.
Our goal is to provide you with cost effective legal representation while minimizing the stress that naturally occurs with having been stopped and charged by the police. We frequently assist clients that have been involved in collisions, are suffering from collision related injuries, or are facing civil lawsuits or insurance problems that may be impacted by the resolution of their case.
Our first goal in every case is to determine whether a sufficient legal argument can be found to simply have the charge(s) against our client withdrawn. By meeting with the Prosecutor on your behalf to review the evidence to be used against you at trial, we determine the merits of the Prosecutor’s case. If the charge(s) issued against you cannot be withdrawn, most cases can be resolved through a negotiated plea deal to minimize the number of offences, the nature of the offences, or the penalties tied to the offences. We can review with you the respective merits and risks of a plea deal in comparison to proceeding to trial so that you can make an informed decision on how you wish to guard your interests.
Should the resolution of your case best be served by arguing the matter at trial, you will have the benefit of a licensed paralegal representing you in the courtroom. Many trials can be resolved without the need for the defendant to ever speak before the court or directly provide evidence that could result in assisting the Prosecutor to win a guilty verdict.
Before making a potentially life altering decision on whether to plead guilty or protect your interests at court, get the basic information you need to make an informed decision.
Have you been charged by the police and are looking to have your ticket or summons reviewed? We offer a no-cost review to help provide basic information about your offence and the court process so that you can make an informed decision on how you wish to proceed in protecting your interests. Ticket reviews are conducted by telephone through our head office toll-free at 1-866-591-9206.
While we do maintain administrative locations to meet with existing clients for trial preparation or to pickup or drop off documents, these locations are by appointment only. All administration, court correspondence, and client contact is through our head office at:
