SERVICES

For Parole In Ontario

Consultation Before Sentencing

If you know in advance you are facing a jail sentence, we can work with you, your family, and your defence lawyer to answer your questions and put you in the best possible position. Getting it right from the beginning can make a big difference. We also work with many clients who are already in custody.

Parole Hearings and Preparation

We represent our clients at their parole hearings. The experience is very different from trial, but having an experienced lawyer there is a huge advantage. We also help our clients to prepare and develop their release plans in advance, so the Parole Board sees what they need to see in order to say "yes."

Parole Revocation and Breach

When someone is on release and they are accused of breaching their parole, the hearing they will face before the Parole Board is critically important. The Parole Board can, and often does, order that the accused person go back in jail for the rest of their sentence. Contact us immediately for help.

Representation is Affordable

We will quote a reasonable block fee - no surprises

Every client in jail has already been through a long, exhausting, and expensive journey. We know that. Professional help with parole is one more expense, but our experience allows us to quote a single predictable fee that will not change. You will know what you are paying and you will know what you are paying for. No surprises.
