Reputable Toronto lawyer provides search warrant defense
It is not everyday someone answers the front door, only to be confronted by the police. Without providing a search warrant, police have convinced people to allow for unlawful entry. Consenting to a search of your property with or without a search warrant has the potential to result in criminal charges if any illegal activity is found.
This complex situation can be too much to handle without aid from a defense lawyer. I have worked on winning defense cases for clients who were victims of an unlawful search and understand the steps needed to achieve successful results. When faced with a criminal charge, approaching the matter very critically is essential. Arriving at favourable court results is obtainable with the help of a defense lawyer. Understanding your rights is a difficult task. To ensure you are taking all the correct measures, select a Toronto defense lawyer. Working as a defense lawyer in Toronto, I have experience in strategically utilizing powerful defense practices that win cases.
Law enforcement has the ability to enter a house with a documented search warrant, to gather evidence that may pertain to a criminal offense. Without a supporting search warrant and without the support of a defense lawyer, illegal police violations can slip through the cracks. I am here to ensure this will not happen to you.
