Criminal Law in Burlington

That is why choosing the right legal representative to help you with your case can be one of the most important decisions you can make during this trying time.

Impaired Driving (DUI) Charges

The consequences that come along with an impaired driving conviction can be hefty -- for you, for your loved ones, for your career, it can also affect various other aspects of your life. If you have been charged with impaired driving or driving under the influence (DUI), it might seem as though your life is over, but don’t worry, it isn’t. Call Peter today.

Drugs & Narcotics Charges
Both drug and narcotic convictions have the potential to create serious lifelong consequences for you and your loved ones. There is a strong social stigma associated with having a track record for these offences and they can negatively impact work, travel, and various other aspects of your life. While it may seem like your future is in jeopardy, remember that there is hope.
