Theft Or Robbery
Driving While Prohibited
I am a criminal defence lawyer serving Victoria, Colwood, Duncan, Nanaimo and Vancouver Island.
I strive to give my clients clarity and understanding during a stressful and challenging time in their lives. People often feel left in the dark when it comes dealing with the criminal justice system. I feel it is important to keep my clients informed and engaged in their defence.
Mr. Simair did an awesome job and gave me a boost of confidence when I desperately needed it. I would have been a basket case without him!
We are very thankful he took our case. His positive approach, hard work and dedication was evident throughout and in court.
He made it look easy. I am very happy he was my lawyer.
Frequently Asked Questions
If I am arrested, will I be released on bail?
You are presumed innocent, and have the right not to be denied reasonable bail without just cause. Bail should be crafted that is minimally onerous but will satisfy the court that will (1) attend your court appearances, (2) not endanger the public (such as by committing further offences), and that you your detention is not necessary to maintain public confidence (having regard to a number of factors, including the seriousness of the case). There are many ways we can formulate a release plan that will work for your personal circumstances. If you are currently on bail and need to apply to amend your conditions, we can help with that too.
What repercussions would a criminal record have for my job?
There are certainly many jobs and volunteer positions where a criminal conviction could have adverse effects. For some occupations or professions, even dealing with the charge short of a criminal conviction could have consequences (for example, if you work in the health care field, or work with children or vulnerable adults). Every person’s situation is unique, and it is important to get personalized legal advice before resolving criminal charges.
How do I find out what the case against me looks like?
Once a prosecutor has reviewed the police file, you are entitled to disclosure of all the material in the possession of the police or prosecutor that may be relevant to your case (both for and against you). We will review this material with you, and seek disclosure of additional material that may exist, to get the fullest picture of the case against you and your options.
