    Charged With A
    Criminal Offence?

    Sexual assault and Domestic assault charges are very unique charges. Due to the fact that they are often gendered, these charges have been politicized. Often times there are special teams of prosecutors that work in groups prosecuting these charges. If you are going to be facing a prosecution team of experts, you need a defence team of experts.

    Our Hamilton Criminal Lawyers focus primarily on these two charges. Our team has represented people on thousands of criminal charges over the years and developed a unique and effective approach to representing people accused of these crimes.

    “Very pleased with the service I received from Lakin.

    Had constant contact with him which made me feel much more confident with my defence. Was feeling very insecure heading into this whole process. I outlined to him what I needed regarding an outcome, and he more than surpassed my expectations.
    Thank you for your hard work and dedication, Lakin. I will certainly recommend your services to anyone I know who finds themselves in a bind and really doesn’t know where to turn.

    “I was looking at a conditional discharge.

    Lakin’s smooth talking and on point argument the Judge gave me an absolute discharge, Lakin made some excellent points that I believe the Judge looked into and helped make his final decision.

    Thanks, Lakin for your incredible service.
