Bail Hearings In Toronto
Never rush your bail hearing.
If consulting with your own lawyer means a second night in your cell, it’s better than risking your freedom for the next six months or longer.
Real Talk About Bail Hearings
There are few situations worse than being arrested and, for most people, the need to be released from their cell and return home is strong, but where you will spend your next year is riding on how well you’ve prepared for your bail hearing.
You have a constitutional right to a bail hearing as soon as is reasonably possible.
The courts will give you an option: A bail hearing with a court-appointed duty council, or you can work with your own lawyer.
While duty council lawyers are talented in their own right, the issue is that they have no more than a few minutes to focus on you and your situation.
Failing to give the judge the right assurances that you don’t pose a threat to society, means the judge will order you to remain in jail throughout your trial.
Let me handle your bail hearing. Together we’ll create a plan based on what I know the judge needs to hear to feel confident about releasing you, and I will present that plan on your behalf.
