DUI refers to several potential offences under the criminal code. It is synonymous with DWI and “Impaired Driving.”
The main services offered are the initial disclosure review and then a trial.
These two concepts are related. DUI & DWI litigation is very complex, and the defence are often counter-intuitive. For example, it is very common to hire a lawyer who practices 100% DUI law, rather than someone who runs a general criminal practice. While the DUI lawyer is likely more expensive, the reality is that DUI law is so complex that it is very difficult for anyone but a specialist to have a complete, instant grasp on all the issues.
After reviewing the file, Mr. Pearse will advise you as to whether or not there is a reasonable chance of winning. If so, Mr. Pearse will defend you at the trial, personally (i.e. he will not transfer the file out to a junior lawyer.)
Mr. Pearse has run several thousand cases throughout Canada including in Toronto, and is the author of one of the leading textbooks on DUI law, A Guide To Breathalyser Certificates In Canada.
You can reach Mr. Pearse directly at (647) 465 – 7875. He works 24/7/365, but it is usually better to text first.
