PRACTICING LAWYERS

CRIMINAL LAW

If you are facing criminal charges, choosing the right criminal lawyer and receiving legal advice early in the process is very important.  You should seek legal advice before providing any statements to police or other investigatory bodies. 

Wardell Gillis understands that being charged with an offence or offences may have a significant impact on your daily life and your ability to work, travel and gain future employment.  We know your reputation is important and discretion is necessary.  If you have been charged with a criminal offence, we can help.  We have experience practicing in youth criminal justice matters, assaults, drug possession, importation and trafficking, impaired driving (DUI), fraud, mischief, harassment, failure to appear, theft, firearms and weapons offences, obstruction of justice, uttering threats, and various other criminal offences. We work alongside you throughout every stage of the criminal court process including the investigation stage, bail hearings and reviews, pre-trial conferences, preliminary inquiries, trials (with and without a jury), sentencing hearings, sentencing circles, and appeals.

 

The best way to understand your fundamental rights and to formulate a defence is to speak with a lawyer who has the knowledge and experience.
