“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.

Our Criminal Defence Process

We do not believe that one size fits all. Our system of defence is tailored for you – we listen to you, strategize with you, and then defend you to get you out of the system or get you the best possible results.

We Listen to You

Different people have different needs when they are dealing with the justice system. Some clients want to get out of the system as fast as possible while some are more concerned with clearing their name. Some clients’ main priority is avoiding jail while others simply want to be reunited with their families.

Since there is no one size fits all approach to the law, we provide a personalized approach for each and every client and their specific needs.

We listen to you to ensure that your unique needs are met and satisfied.

We Strategize with You

Preparing for trial requires a collaborative approach. Since you are the only one who knows what happened to you, we work together to clarify the details of what happened and formulate an effective approach.

We look to what caused your situation and work to find flaws in the case against you. Our criminal lawyers are very familiar with the system and know how to prepare for every unexpected contingency.

We create case by case approaches which are based on our experience with the law and your knowledge of the facts.

We Defend You

Once we have formulated a personalized plan, we deliver it in the courtroom. We are always fully prepared to defend you. We work hard to get the particular successful outcome you desire.

This can mean probation or a conditional discharge instead of jail time, a partial or complete acquittal, or even achieving lesser charges (for example, only pleading to assault instead of sexual assault).

Success to us means achieving your desired outcome.

If you are wanted by the police or considering turning yourself to the authorities, our Kitchener criminal lawyers are available 24 hours a day to assist you in any criminal offences.

When do I need a criminal lawyer?

If you have been arrested or pressed charges, you should call a criminal lawyer immediately to reduce the impact of the offenses.  The earlier we can touch base on your case, the better the result.  A simple call early in your position may save thousands of money, time and even prevent a charge to evolve into a criminal offense.  We provide criminal legal assistance 24/7 hours a day and encourage you to call us.

What is a bail hearing?
A bail hearing is not considered a trial but rather a way for you to show the Judge or Justice whether or not you should have an option of entering back into society while your case will remain in the criminal court.  In the Ontario Court of Justice, you only get one bail hearing and if you’re denied bail, the Judge will hold you in custody until your criminal case has been resolved in a trial.  We strongly suggest you call our Kitchener criminal lawyers when proceeding with a bail hearing to maximize your chances of a successful bail hearing.

“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.
