Have you received a court outcome that you are dissatisfied with? We have a team of experience Lawyers and Paralegals to look after your best interests. Appeals are time consuming and require a fair amount of work to be done in order to receive the outcome you desire.
Under the Provincial Offences Act, an individual is required to pay their fine prior to the commencement of an appeal. If you do win your appeal, the money that you paid due to your prior conviction will be returned to you upon your acquittal. In some situations the court may allow an individual to enter into recognizance without paying the fine.
Some criteria that lead to appeals are:
- An error of law or fact by the Justice of the Peace.
- New evidence that is detrimental to your case that was unavailable at the time of trial.
