“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.

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,

but with 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.
