The lawyers at Hardy & Associates work exclusively on defending criminal cases.

Servicing London, Strathroy, Woodstock, St. Thomas, Sarnia, Goderich and other jurisdictions across Ontario.

We offer a wide range of services to accommodate the needs of our clients looking for legal representation.

IMPAIRED DRIVING

Impaired driving defences are very technical.  The law is complex and often evolving.  If you are charged with operating a motor vehicle while impaired by alcohol or drug you want to retain a lawyer who defends these matters frequently.  Our lawyers actively stay up to date with the changes to the law in this area and have all defended many clients charged with these offences.

 

DRUG MATTERS

Drug matters are complicated.  They often involve search warrants, surveillance, cellphone analysis, expert evidence and Charter arguments.  A Charter argument is an application brought by an accused saying their rights as protected by the Charter of Rights and Freedoms have been violated.  Our firm has brought many successful Charter applications resulting in exclusions of evidence and acquittals.  If you are charged with a drug offence, contact us today to speak with Jack, Damon or Victoria about your case.

 

INTIMATE PARTNER VIOLENCE MATTERS

An intimate partner or domestic matter is any offence in which the complainant is, or was at any time, an intimate partner of the person charged.  These are sensitive cases as the parties often share children, property, family and a life.  As such, they often need to progress as quickly as possible. Our team of lawyers have extensive experience in these situations and understand the stress this can put on an accused person.

 

SEXUAL ASSAULTS

Sexual assault charges have gained a lot of attention in the media in the past years.  Many of these charges go to trial, including jury trials.  Each of our lawyers have represented many accused persons charged with sexual assaults at trial and secured acquittals.  Our firm is known for being well prepared and are skilled litigators.

 

YOUTH MATTERS

Anyone under 18 years of age is considered a `youth` in Court.  As a youth there are very special sentencing and bail considerations available under the specialized youth act, the Youth Criminal Justice Act.  If you or a family member are charged with an offence as a youth you want to hire a lawyer who frequently appears in the youth court and understands the specialized rules.  Each of our lawyers fit this category, appearing weekly in the Youth Court.

 

PROVINCIAL OFFENCES

We represent clients charged under the Highway Traffic Act.  Careless driving, stunt driving, driving while suspended or any other serious Highway Traffic Act can have large fines, can result in license suspensions, demerit points and significant insurance consequences.    If you are charged with a serious provincial offence contact us today to discuss.
