  • Adam Goodman's Working Relationship
    should we both determine the services of a lawyer is required the meeting is not designed to be a sales pitch I will also be honest about whether you even require a lawyer as there are often cases where someone with a legal issue can easily deal with the matter without the services of a lawyer Before our meeting please take a few moments to write down the facts behind the matter as well as any questions you may have Since the facts behind a case are so important it is best to take notes when they are fresh in your mind to ensure nothing is missed when we meet A detail that may seem of minimal important to you may be highly significant to the case so it s best to write down everything you can remember During our meeting I ask questions to help fill in anything you may have missed If your matter is of a criminal nature and you have already been provided disclosure by the Crown please bring it along Preparation Often it can take several months for a legal matter to work its way through the courts Much of this process may be administrative and will not require us to make any decisions on how to proceed with your case During this process I would be happy to communicate by telephone or email so you have a full understanding of what is happening with your matter Should it be necessary to make any decisions then we will discuss the options together and make the decision that is best for your matter During the preparation stage I will be engaged in meetings with various stakeholders involved in your matter As required we will discuss strategies for these meetings and the best way they can be

    of the bail hearing process please click here First Appearance At the first court date an Accused person should receive their disclosure and find out more information on how the Crown intends to proceed with their case Disclosure is the evidence that the Crown will use to try and prove their case against an Accused There may be further items of disclosure such as videotaped statements officer s notes not yet available that will be provided at a further court date or upon request of defence counsel Generally a charge screening form will be attached to the disclosure This form will state how the Crown intends to proceed if they have decided yet summarily or by indictment as well as an idea of what sentence they would be looking for upon a plea of guilty Resolving Without Pleading Guilty For minor offences the Crown may offer a program called Diversion This is a program where upon completion of certain requirements community service counselling charitable donations etc the Crown will withdraw or stay a charge The Crown may also agree to allow an Accused person to enter into a peace bond Under the criminal code an individual may enter into a recognizance to keep the peace and be of good behaviour along with other conditions as determined by the Court usually not to communicate directly or indirectly with the complainant for a 12 month period Peace bonds carry no criminal record and are not a finding of guilt although there could be employment and travel consequences In certain circumstances the Crown will withdraw a charge in exchange for an Accused entering into a peace bond The charge screening form will state the Crown s initial position on resolution by way of diversion or peace bond A lawyer may be able to assist in presenting reasons why the Crown should reconsider a decision not to offer a resolution by way of diversion or peace bond Subsequent Court Appearances A number of appearances may occur after the first appearance until the case is completed If an Accused does not have a lawyer then they will be encouraged to hire one or apply for legal aid If a lawyer is on board then these appearances are meant to move along the disclosure process conduct pre trials and set dates for a trial or guilty plea Crown Judicial Pre trials Throughout the process it is possible to have discussions with the Crown Attorney A lawyer can have these discussions in person or by telephone The purpose of these discussions are to discuss disclosure issues narrow issues for trial negotiate a plea position as well as discuss other issues A Judicial Pre Trial is meant to have a without prejudice discussion with a judge about the case The judge will provide advice on likely sentencing upon a finding of guilt assist with disclosure issues help narrow issues as well as how he she may see a matter being determined at trial While this judge will not

  • Toronto Criminal Law Fees
    of how much your legal fees will be as well as allow you to speak with me and ask questions when required without having to incur additional fees every time you do so I also do not bill for incidental fees such as photopying mailing couriers hiring of agents etc In cases where it is difficult to quote a fee at the outset eg when disclosure has not been provided matters that may have a large amount of disclosure summary advice before charges are laid etc it may be necessary to begin by billing an hourly rate and possibly switching over to a block fee later on All of my private retainer clients sign designations This allows me or another person with my instructions to attend court on your behalf until such a time as you are required to be there I will always require a retainer prior to commencing work on a criminal file The initial retainer will generally be 1 3 of the fee for a one day hearing An additional 1 3 will be due within 4 6 weeks and the final 1 3 will be due three months prior to the hearing Legal Aid The general rule for qualifying for a legal aid certificate is that you must meet certain financial criteria set by Legal Aid Ontario and be facing the potential of a custodial disposition It is best to apply for legal aid early in the process as it may take some time to gather any documentation that is required to properly assess your application A decision on your application may also not occur until the Crown s sentencing position is relayed in the initial disclosure package While I will not accept all legal aid certificates I will consider doing so for those with charges
