Practice Areas

Bail Hearings

When one is arrested and charged with a criminal offence, in most cases, they’re held in custody for a bail hearing. This is the initial step of a criminal case, and it’s of great significance to the defendant and the rest of the process. During a bail hearing, the court determines whether you’ll remain in custody awaiting trial or you’ll be released under specific conditions. A failed bail hearing may impact your case as it makes it harder for you to work with your attorney, among other things. Getting bail earns you some freedom and allows you to work on your case with your criminal defence lawyer.

At Zamani Law, we are bail hearing experts. We analyze every case and find effective solutions to any issues that may lead to denial of bail. If you or someone you know are awaiting a bail hearing, contact our Barrie criminal defence lawyers for exceptional representation.

Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is an assault that occurs within a domestic relationship, such as a married couple or common-law partners. Although legally, this is not a separate charge from other assault offences, it’s treated differently by the criminal justice system. Like any other violent offence, domestic assault charges have severe consequences upon conviction, including restraining orders from your family or partners, a criminal record, and incarceration. If you’ve been charged with domestic violence, it’s advisable to rely on the services of an experienced criminal defence lawyer.

Zamani Law has handled numerous domestic violence cases, and we understand the complexities involved. We protect our clients’ rights and negotiate for possible resolutions, and when the case goes to trial, we mount innovative defence strategies for the best possible results. If you are charged with a domestic assault case, contact our criminal defence lawyers in Barrie for a free consultation.

Youth Offences

In the criminal justice system, young offenders are treated differently than adults. When arrested for a criminal offence, they are charged and prosecuted under the Youth Criminal Justice Act (YCJA). The act provides extra protection, limits prosecution and investigation, and focuses more on youth rehabilitation through diversion programs and extrajudicial measures. However, even with the protection from the YCJA, a conviction on a criminal charge has far-reaching effects on a youths’ life, including a criminal record and possible jail sentence. This means that if you’re facing a youth offence, you should consider getting legal counsel.

Our Barrie criminal defence lawyers are well-versed with the YCJA, and they have vast experience successfully defending young offenders. If you or your loved one are charged with a youth offence, call us today, and we’ll start working on your case. Our lawyers will guide you through the youth system and utilize all the opportunities offered by the YCJA to attain a suitable outcome.

Driving Offences & DUI

Driving offences include driving while suspended, impaired driving, over 80, refusing a breath sample, and dangerous driving. In Canada, driving offences pose devastating consequences, including driving prohibitions, criminal records, and possible jail sentences. Driving violations have complex laws, which are difficult to navigate without professional assistance. Therefore, it’s advisable to retain a criminal lawyer to guide you and protect your rights.

Drug Crimes

Drug offences are among some of the most serious criminal charges prosecuted in Canada. They include possession, importation, production, and trafficking of controlled drugs and substances.

Assault & Threats

Under the Canadian Criminal Code, violent crimes, such as assault and threats, are handled very seriously by the Crown and Court. Assault is the intentional application of force, no matter how little, on another person without their consent. This can be either directly or indirectly, with or without a weapon. Assault offences can be categorized into assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm, aggravated assault, and simple assault. Threats can also constitute an assault if the words, deeds, or actions make a person reasonably believe an impending use of force. Assault and threat charges have serious consequences upon a conviction, including mandatory minimum sentences and a criminal record. For these reasons, it’s essential to have legal representation when charged with assault or threats.

If you or someone you know are facing assault & threat charges, contact Zamani Law for expert legal advice. We have protected the rights and liberties of many persons charged with such offences, giving us the necessary experience and expertise to defend you.

Weapon Charges

Gun and other weapon-related crimes are among the most severe charges prosecuted in Canada. Gun crimes include possession of unregistered firearms, carrying a concealed gun, illegal use of firearms, importing guns, and possession of restricted firearms. Gun charges carry drastic penalties, such as suspension of a firearm license, long incarcerations, and criminal records. Therefore, if you’re arrested and charged with a gun offence, it’s in your best interest to seek legal advice from an experienced lawyer.
