Defending Driving Under the Influence (D.U.I.) charges and other driving-related offences
Criminal charges of drunk driving / impaired driving / drunk driving accident / drunk driving over 08, and refusal to provide a breath sample are all very serious charges which, if convicted, carry a mandatory minimum penalty of a one year driving prohibition and a $1000 fine, as well as a criminal record. One’s insurance rates, life, livelihood and ability to travel may all be affected. You need a DUI lawyer to help you. DO NOT plead guilty.
These offences are considered by the Crown to be very serious charges. Although such drunk driving offences carry significant penalties, there are many defenses at law (both technical and otherwise) that are available to you, and require a lawyer who knows the law of drunk driving and is willing to defend your rights.
We will take the time to review the law of drunk driving with you and discuss the elements we must prove. We will then discuss the ways to challenge such elements - beginning with the Officer’s grounds for pulling you over and asking you to provide a breath sample, to the Officer ensuring that you are offered the option of speaking with legal counsel, as well as the Officer having to comply with the drunk driving provisions of the Criminal Code.
Hiring the right DUI lawyer is essential to your defense.
If you are facing drunk driving or related charges, you need to know all of your options. DUI MTL can do that for you.
