Being accused of a crime can turn your life upside-down, especially if nothing like this has ever happened to you before. Fear of losing your job, your family, or your freedom can feel overwhelming. An experienced Toronto criminal lawyer can help you understand the situation you are in and ensure that you know your rights. When you need a criminal lawyer in Toronto, What The Law’s team of skilled experts will make sure you do not face these uncertainties on your own.

When you need to speak to a criminal defence lawyer in Toronto outside of typical 9 to 5 business hours, What The Law’s Toronto criminal lawyers are available to take your call or text 24 hours a day, seven days a week. When you are accused of a criminal offence, it is critical that you get expert legal advice as soon as possible to ensure that your rights are protected. The chances of a favourable outcome increase when you follow the advice of a skilled Toronto criminal lawyer.
When you have been charged with a criminal offence, “disclosure” is a package of information provided to you—typically during your first court appearance—containing the evidence that the prosecution intends to use against you. The disclosure package may include items such as notes taken by police officers, witness statements, photographs, or other evidence. You have a right to review this information so that you are aware of the evidence that will be used against you.
Your disclosure package will include a synopsis, a written summary of the prosecutor’s version of the event or events that led to you being charged with an offence. Often, the accused person disagrees with the synopsis because it does not include his or her side of the story. This is where an experienced Toronto criminal lawyer can help.
Disclosure review is included when you take advantage of a free initial consultation with a Toronto criminal lawyer at What The Law. Additional disclosure should be made available to you during future court dates, and your Toronto criminal lawyer will ensure that you do receive it.
