The OTD team can assist you with any Highway Traffic Act or Compulsory Automobile Insurance Act offences that you have received in the Collingwood and surrounding areas. Our experienced and knowledgeable paralegals are licensed with the Law Society of Ontario and regularly help defendants to protect their interests at court. If you have been charged by the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) or municipal police services, seeking out basic information about what you’ve been charged with and what legal recourse is available is important to making an informed decision about what to do.
A guilty plea to a traffic violation can carry minor penalties such as a minor fine and a record of conviction on your driver’s abstract. However, a guilty plea could also result in demerit points, a large fine, interruption to your insurability, a high insurance cost increase, suspension to your driver’s licence, or even jail. Novice drivers such as those with a G1 or G2 licence are especially vulnerable given the smaller number of demerit points that will trigger an interview with the MTO or an outright licence suspension. We can also help novice drivers who have been charged with violating the conditions of their licence or who are facing an escalated sanctions suspension of their licence for an offence carrying 4 or greater demerit points.
Our team can help you with cost-effective legal representation for minor offences such as disobey stop sign, driver fail to properly wear seatbelt, operate motor vehicle no licence, red/amber light fail to stop, speeding, or fail to drive in marked lane. Legal representation becomes even more cost-effective if you have been charged with a very serious offence such as careless driving, fail to remain at the scene of a collision, fail to stop for school bus, operate motor vehicle without insurance, or stunt driving / race motor vehicle.
Our team will respond to the court on your behalf of your intention to contest the charge(s) issued against you. We will file for a disclosure of the Prosecutor’s evidence and meet with the Prosecutor on your behalf in advance of a trial date to seek an early resolution. Our primary goal is to seek out sufficient legal grounds in advance of trial to have the charge(s) issued against you withdrawn. After a review of the Prosecutor’s evidence we can also advise you as to the legal merits of their case and whether a negotiated plea deal to mitigate the penalties pending against you is advantageous rather than proceeding to trial.
We have helped clients such as yourself during some of the most difficult times in their lives and understand the natural upset and stress that can be caused by motor vehicle collisions and charges being issued by the police. Where possible we will seek to resolve your case without the need for you to attend court, file court documents, or ever speak to a Prosecutor or Justice of the Peace.
We offer a no cost, no obligation review of cases and our OTD Legal Services staff will be happy to assist you. Our team can be reached by calling our toll-free number at 1-866-591-9206 or via email [email protected], through our website at https://www.otdlegal.ca/contact, or at any of our offices in person.
