If you have been charged by the Woodstock Police Service or the OPP in this area, OTD Legal Services can help you. Whether you have been charged under the Highway Traffic Act or the Compulsory Automobile Insurance Act, it is important to understand the penalties that you are facing upon conviction and what legal recourse is available to you. For simple cases our friendly and knowledgeable team will generally only need 10 to 15 minutes to gather the details of your case and provide you with the basic information needed to allow you to make an educated decision.
Defendants are sometimes surprised to learn that an offence they have been charged with carries very serious repercussions as far as demerit points, insurance rate consequences, licence suspension, or even jail. Some defendants simply plead guilty to an offence without understanding that they may have a defence that can be argued at court, or that the nature of a charge or the penalties associated with an offence can be negotiated at court to be minimized. While there is some recourse in addressing a conviction, generally once you have plead guilty to a given offence your legal options become limited and the legal costs of addressing the offence begin to increase.
Our experienced team can help defendants that have been charged with minor offences such as failing to surrender an insurance card or driver’s licence, speeding, change lane not in safety, disobey stop sign, driver fail to properly wear seatbelt, fail to stop for emergency vehicle, or red light fail to stop. Our team also regularly assists clients with much more serious offences such as careless driving, operate motor vehicle no insurance, provide false proof of insurance, fail to stop for school bus, or fail to remain at the scene of a collision.
The OTD team will can handle the defence of your matter from the initial filing of your ticket with the court through to the final court appearance, generally for a fixed, flat-rate cost that will make protecting your interests cost effective. By filing for and reviewing a disclosure of the Prosecutor’s evidence against you, our licenced paralegals can advise you on how to proceed at court. Where possible, our first goal is to have your charge withdrawn completely in advance of trial. If your charge can not simply be withdrawn, we can negotiate with the Prosecutor on your behalf to see if the charges issued against you can be reduced to minimize their court, MTO, and insurance penalties. Generally most cases can be resolved without the need for a full trial or for you to ever step foot in the courthouse.
Should your case proceed to trial, you will have the advantage of an experienced and licenced paralegal who knows the law and the court process. Many trials can be completed without the need for you to attend court, provide evidence, or be cross examined by the Prosecutor. We understand that being charged with an offence, let alone having to attend court, can be a stressful experience. Let our friendly team fight for your rights in the courtroom on your behalf.
