Guelph Criminal Lawyer

Charged Criminally?

Contact Us

In Canada, you are innocent until proven guilty. And proving someone’s guilt in a court of law is not as easy as you might think. To prevent innocent people from being convicted, a strict set of rules and procedures governs criminal trials. These rules and procedures are there to protect you.

The burden of proof is on the prosecution, not you. You do not have to prove your innocence. A criminal charge is an unproven accusation. Sometimes accusations cannot be proved, in which case the charges must be dismissed.

If you are facing criminal charges, do not assume that you will be convicted. For the professional help that you need in the Guelph area, contact experienced criminal defence lawyer Joseph M. Pellizzari.
