Criminal law, which relates directly to illegal activities, is the body of law that prohibits certain actions and proposes sanctions for unlawful behaviour. This could include drug charges, assault & threats, property offences, impaired driving and motor vehicle offences, investigations and more.   

Knowing your rights is very important when facing criminal charges. It’s essential that you speak with a criminal lawyer as soon as you have been charged with a crime.
