Call Us To Discuss Your Ticket
If you have been stopped by the police in one of these areas and have been charged under the Highway Traffic Act (HTA) or Compulsory Automobile Insurance Act (CAIA), OTD Legal is able to assist you. Whether you have been issued a ticket for a simple offence such as speeding, red light – fail to stop, disobey stop sign, failure to stop for an emergency vehicle, operate motor vehicle – no licence, or have been issued a summons for a more serious offence such as careless driving, failure to remain, operate motor vehicle – no insurance, or fail to stop for a school bus, OTD Legal’s administrative and paralegal team can help you.
It is natural to experience stress and frustration after having been stopped and charged by the police. Penalties for a conviction may include a court fine ranging from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars, licence suspension, increased insurance costs, and imprisonment along with interrupting your day-to-day work and family obligations. Our staff can provide you with a no cost, no commitment review of your case to help you understand what you have been charged with and how the defence process works. Some defendants simply plead guilty to their offence without understanding the repercussions involved, only to be surprised with interruptions to their insurability or ability to drive. Before you make a decision on whether or not to contest the charge(s) issued against you…know your rights, understand your options, and weigh out the costs and benefits of those options.
The benefits of protecting your rights at court will generally outweigh the costs of legal work. Most charges can at least be negotiated with the Prosecutor’s Office to reduce the nature or number of the charges issued against you. Poor officer notes, lack of evidence, or errors on your ticket are a few of the grounds upon which charges may simply be withdrawn without the need for a trial, or be dismissed at trial. Our experienced team serves Lanark County residents in being able to identify which cases are best served by being argued in the courtroom and which cases are best to be resolved through pre-trial negotiation.
The court process can seem overwhelming and complex. Most cases can be resolved without the need for you to ever set foot in the courthouse or file a document with a court clerk. OTD Legal will handle the entire process from the initial filing of your matter with the court, to filing for and reviewing a release of the Prosecutor’s evidence against you, through to a final negotiated settlement or full trial. Unintentional errors made by self-represented defendants can either damage the resolution of the case, or lead to an unnecessary conviction. Avoid costly legal missteps by hiring a paralegal that is experienced in the courtroom and licensed under the Law Society of Ontario.
