Bail is one of the most important parts of the criminal justice process. The decision to detain or release you will impact your pre-trial liberty and your ability to properly prepare for and defend yourself at trial. A denial of bail will result in a significant disruption to your job, your life and your family's life

If the police do not release an arrestee and recommend to the crown attorney that he or she should be detained in custody pending trial, the accused has a constitutional right to a bail hearing where they are able to argue their case for release. Under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, every person has the right to reasonable bail unless there is just cause to hold them in custody. If a Court finds that the accused is a flight risk, or that there is a substantial likelihood that the accused will re-offend if released, or that the accused’s detention is necessary to maintain confidence in the administration of justice, a detention order will be made.

It is crucial that you receive the best possible bail hearing. This requires preparation and skill. Too much is at stake for costly mistakes and errors to be made at this stage.
