Nothing is more important than your freedom.
At Montes Law, we understand how stressful it is to be charged with a criminal offence. Aside from the frightening prospect of incarceration, we know that having a criminal record can prevent you from obtaining employment and supporting your family. We will fight to keep your clean criminal record intact.
We at Montes Law know that witnesses may lie on the stand, crime scenes can be tampered with and that police officers make mistakes. Our expertise in examining and deconstructing the prosecution’s case often results in identifying and exposing these and other evidentiary weaknesses, leading to favourable outcomes for our clients.
We represent clients with criminal charges ranging from shoplifting and simple assault, to the most complex criminal investigations and prosecutions under the Criminal Code of Canada and the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act such as trafficking, importing, sexual assault and murder. Our approach is the same for every case: do everything possible to protect our client’s freedom and reputation.
Once retained, we will:
- review all of the disclosure pertaining to your case, including police notes, warrants and expert reports
- present you with our defence options and trial strategies to fight the charges
- provide you with a fair assessment of the expected legal fees for your case
