Our administrative and court staff team members can assist you if you’ve been charged under the Highway Traffic Act or the Compulsory Insurance act in the North Bay area. If you have been charged with a minor offence such as driver fail to properly wear seatbelt, speeding, amber or red light fail to stop, fail to surrender insurance card, change lane not in safety, operate motor vehicle – no licence, or disobey stop sign, our team can provide you cost-effective legal representation. We can also help protect your interests against the more severe licencing, insurance, and court appointed penalties in serious cases such as careless driving, stunt driving / race motor vehicle, operate motor vehicle without insurance, drive under suspension, fail to remain at the scene of a collision, fail to stop for school bus, providing false insurance information, as well as MTO offences for commercial motor vehicle drivers.
If you have been charged by either the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) or a local municipal police force, it is important to understand what penalties you will incur should you be convicted. Fines can range from under $100 up to tens of thousands of dollars depending upon the severity of the charge issued against you. A conviction could also result in a suspension of your driver’s licence, whether due to accumulated demerit points, a court ordered suspension, or as a result of an escalated sanctions penalty for a novice driver (such as a G1 or G2 licence holder). A conviction will also result in a record of conviction being entered into your driver’s licence history and will be visible to third parties that require your driver’s abstract such as an employer or automobile insurance company. Cost increases to automobile insurance coverage can become very costly and can remain in effect for multiple years, especially when the driving record becomes so poor as to force you into high-risk insurance. In a worst case scenario, a conviction of a very serious offence can also result in having to serve jail time.
Our staff at OTD Legal Services can generally gather the necessary information from you and provide you with basic information about your offence and the court process within as little as 10 to 15 minutes. Having helped clients just like yourself for years, we understand that being charged by the police and facing potentially life-altering penalties can be stressful. The majority of matters that we represent defendants on can generally be resolved without the need for full trial; from the original response made to the court on your behalf through to the final court appearance, our primary goal is to resolve your matter without the need for you to ever step foot in a courthouse.
Our staff will file for a release of the Prosecutor’s evidence in your matter to review for any legal grounds upon which we can argue to simply have the matter withdrawn in advance of trial. If your charge(s) cannot be withdrawn based on the legal merits of the Prosecutor’s case, most cases can at least be resolved through an early resolution meeting with the Prosecutor to reach a negotiated plea deal. Having a licenced and experienced paralegal arguing on your behalf at court will ensure that your best interests are guarded in seeking to reduce or eliminate the penalties associated with your charge(s). Should your matter be one of the less common cases that results in a full trial, it is important to have legal representation that knows the law and the court process to ensure that your defence is presented as effectively and thoroughly as possible.
