Aitken Robertson Barristers & Solicitors - Peterborough Criminal Lawyers

Few things can change your life as drastically as a criminal charge. Being arrested, appearing before a judge, and facing stiff penalties or jail time—it’s enough to scare anyone. Suddenly your reputation, your freedom, your finances, and every aspect of your life is on the line.

Whether you are guilty or not, you need to have an experienced lawyer on your side. A lawyer can craft and present the best possible defence in your case, and work to reduce or even dismiss the charges you face. In the worst case scenario, a lawyer can fight to ensure that any punishment leveled against you is fair. More than one innocent person has been found guilty because they thought that having the truth on their side was enough. Truth is good, but nothing can ever replace solid, qualified, and competent legal representation.

Facing Impaired Driving Charges? Aitken Robertson Can Help

Aitken Robertson has particular expertise in impaired driving cases. In particular, the team believes that extensive investigation by qualified experts is absolutely indispensible to effective defence against an impaired driving charge. Richard Aitken explains, “A thorough investigation is usually the difference between a guilty verdict and a not guilty verdict, or the difference between an unfavorable plea bargain agreement and a favorable plea bargain agreement.” Aitken Robertson will explore every aspect of the evidence in your case, especially anything that may be used by the prosecution. Your lawyer will explore any possibility of excluding police evidence for legal or technical reasons.

“Each client will receive our individual attention and our best possible defence,” says Aitken. “Our job is to attack the Crown Attorney’s case from every side, so that we can create reasonable doubt in the mind of the Judge or jury, which can lead to having the charge dropped or dismissed.”
