This is a relatively new and evolving area of criminal law which requires constant vigilance in order stay abreast of recent caselaw and trends. We make it our business to read and database most every new legal decision in British Columbia and as far away as Ontario that may assist our clients in terms of the latest legal defences. Police agencies will often employ sophisticated software and computer experts to build their case. That is why we make sure to employ our own experts when required to pick apart the evidence Crown has marshalled. Social media may be a new phenomenon but the use of search warrants and production orders to seize evidence from computers and mobile devices is not. Due to our extensive experience dealing with the Charter and the law of search and seizure, this is an area that we have found ripe for challenge and the possible exclusion of evidence.
