Defend your Rights

If you have been charged with a criminal offence, your rights, liberty and freedom may be at stake.  You will find yourself up against the vast resources of the State - the police, forensic experts, and Crown attorney's -  all of whom will be working together to prosecute and convict you. The consequences of a criminal conviction are extremely serious and last a lifetime. It is therefore crucial that you retain experienced, proven, and dedicated legal counsel who will fight zealously to protect your rights and defend your innocence.

Areas of Practice

Our law firm is dedicated exclusively to the practice of criminal law. We specialize in bails, trials and appeals for all criminal charges, and we serve our clients throughout the province of Ontario. A few of our primary areas of practice include:

Bail Hearings

When you are charged with a criminal offence, the police have the discretion to keep you in custody an have you brought before a Justice for a bail hearing. If this happens to you, it is vital that you obtain effective legal counsel to help secure your release with the least restrictive conditions possible. If bail is denied, it can mean spending months in jail waiting for your trial date to arrive.

Assault

Assaults involve the intentional application of force against another person against their will. There are a number of aggravating factors that can increase the severity of your sentence if you are found guilty this offence, including:  whether the victim was a domestic partner, if a weapon was used, if the assault was sexual in nature, and if serious injuries were sustained. 

Impaired Driving

It is a crime to operate or to be in care or control of a motor vehicle if you are impaired by drugs or alcohol, or if your blood alcohol concentration is above 0.80mg/ml. The consequences of conviction are serious, and include minimum fines, driving prohibitions, significant increases in insurance premiums, and even jail. The defence of these charges and the evidence presented in these cases require a specialized approach. It is therefore imperative that you retain a defence lawyer who is experienced in this area of law.

Drug Offences

Drug offences are listed under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, and include the possession, trafficking, importing/exporting, and production of scheduled substances. Factors that affect the gravity of the offence and the severity of the potential sentence include the type and quantity of the drug or substance in question. Successful drug defence lawyers know how to challenge the admissibility of the evidence in these cases, and how to raise a reasonable doubt on the critical issues of knowledge and control.

Fraud

Fraud cases are often very complex and can involve thousands of pages of financial disclosure. The offence is committed when a person defrauds the public or a person of any property, money, or service by deceit, falsehood or other fraudulent means. Kevin Mehar is experienced in dealing with these matters and has successfully defended several large scale fraud and breach of trust cases. 

Sexual Offences

The Criminal Code contains a large number of different sexual offences including: sexual assault, voyeurism, luring a child, invitation to sexual touching, and child pornography. These offences are extremely serious and and a conviction can result not only in a lengthy jail term, but also in being listed on a sex offender registry.

Weapon Offences

Weapons offences address the use and possession of weapons and firearms. These offences criminalize the possession of certain firearms, weapons, ammunition and devices. In addition, they impose severe penalties to those who use a firearm in the commission of an indictable offence. 

Robbery

In Canada, robbery is an indictable offence subject to a maximum penalty of life imprisonment. Although a robbery can be committed without the use of any weapons, if a firearm is used, the accused will face lengthy minimum terms of imprisonment, ranging from 4 - 7 years. 

Make the Right Choice

Whether you have been charged with a crime or fear that you are being investigated for one, it is vital that you obtain immediate legal advice from a trusted and experienced criminal lawyer. Doing so will help ensure that you protect any and all defences you may have, and that your Constitutional rights are safeguarded.

What our clients are saying

I was arrested and charged after the police searched and found drugs in my car. I hired Kevin Mehar to defend me and I'm very  glad I did. He argued that the search of my car was illegal and my charges were dropped.

What our customers are saying

I'm a health care professional who sought Mr. Mehar's assistance after I was falsely accused of assault. It was an extremely stressful time for me, as conviction would have ended my career. My case went to trial and thanks to Mr. Mehar I was acquitted. I recommend him to anyone who needs a criminal lawyer!
