Accused criminals are pre-judged by many even before their day in court. Some people even question why criminal lawyers choose to represent someone who is accused of a heinous crime and they are often treated as if they themselves were on trial. Public perception can be harsh and people often wonder why someone who is “obviously guilty” can be defended, and we attempt to answer that with our work ethic.
One of the most important tenets of the Canadian Criminal Justice System is that an individual charged with a criminal offence is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond reasonable doubt in a court of law. We at The Law Firm of Ted Yoannou believe in the Canadian Justice System and adhere to its principles, offering the best legal representation to our clients. We believe that everyone needs a proper defense and that is strengthened and reflected in our years of experience.
There is extreme value in keeping your criminal record clean as well as defending it if you already have been convicted. In an age where your information is but a click away, it is imperative that you are aware of the negative impact a criminal record can have on your future. Employers can be very wary by convictions attached to your name. You can also be banned from attaining certain licenses necessary for your future occupations and can be subject to loss of certain rights such as owning a firearm. Another impact it can have is your freedom to enter certain countries. Neglecting to divulge that you have a record can get you deported or even incarcerated.
Hiring a well reputed and experienced lawyer is the best way to ensure that you have a fighting chance. Protecting your future, regardless of whether you have a criminal record or not, starts with your free initial consultation at The Law Firm of Ted Yoannou.
