Toronto, ON -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/11/2014 -- According to data released by Statistics Canada, despite an overall trend of reduced crimes reported to Canadian police forces, there has been an increase in recent offences in homicide, sexual offences against children, impaired driving and most drug offences. According to Robb MacDonald Criminal Lawyer in Toronto, these are offences one should never face without the proper defence attorney backing.
Says MacDonald, "I have defended defended countless defendants accused of drug related offences in Toronto and the GTA. Drug related cases can have numerous different kinds of results and if you do not have proper representation, those results can be devastating. Drug related charges such as drug trafficking or drug dealing take a lot of skill and experience to defend, ensuring a positive outcome." MacDonald has dealt with crimes involving importing and exporting drugs for alleged international drug cartells and is also experienced in representing a number of individuals facing independent drug charges including “simple possession”, “trafficking”, and “possession for the purpose of trafficking.”
MacDonald goes on to say those charged with these types of crimes need a lawyer who can put them at ease while representing them with force and professionalism. Additionally, a criminal attorney should have experience in criminal jury trials. MacDonald goes on to say one of the most common mistakes made by Toronto criminal defence lawyers is not being proactive right from the start. Says MacDonald, "Many lawyers do not take active steps on a file until they receive initial disclosure from the Crown Attorney’s office. Sometimes this is almost two months after charges are laid, and oftentimes they find they have waited too long."
With this in mind, Robb MacDonald Law announces they are now offering free consultations for those looking for a Toronto defence attorney. Macdonald confirms, explaining, "If a defendant retains a lawyer prior to his first appearance, the lawyer can attend the first appearance on behalf of the defendant. Once the lawyer has received the disclosure, he can review the evidence and can begin finding weaknesses in the Crown’s case against the defendant. For this reason, a free consultation can be the first step to resolving a case."
