The Importance of legal advice

Since having a criminal record can have some pretty serious consequences, it is important to get legal help as soon as possible. If you have been charged with any of the above offenses, contact Balatidis Legal Services for a consultation. Our team will review the charges against you and any evidence you have which may help your case.

We have a network of retained lawyers who specialize in the above types of cases, and we will match you with the one whose experience most closely matches your needs.

Our professional paralegals and retained lawyers will do the work of compiling evidence, gathering witness testimonies and pleading your case before an Ontario judge and/or jury.

Even if you are planning to plead guilty to the charges, it is still important to seek legal advice. There may be mitigating circumstances or precedent cases which could help you have the charges or penalty reduced or even have the case dropped altogether.  

If you are found guilty, we can even help you with the appeal process.
