When someone has been arrested and is not immediately released by police, our first priority is to secure their release and get them bail. As soon as we receive the call from a person in custody, we move quickly to ensure that a proper bail plan will be in place by the time the detained individual is brought before a Justice of the Peace.
In the course of assembling a suitable release plan, we prepare bond documentation and contact and screen prospective sureties. A surety is someone who can vouch for and supervise the accused upon his or her release from custody. We also negotiate with the Crown Attorneys and determine whether or not the accused person can be released on consent or whether it will be necessary to conduct a contested bail hearing. Our lawyers have conducted hundreds of bail hearings in jurisdictions across Eastern Ontario. We can be reached 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – when you need us most.
