Youth Offences

It is extremely important to hire an attorney with a thorough understanding not only of the Canadian Criminal Code but also the Youth Criminal Justice Act (“YCJA”) when dealing with youth charged with a criminal offence.  Unlike the Criminal Code, the YCJA emphasizes rehabilitation as the primary goal when dealing with young persons and has a very different set of rules when it comes to bail and sentencing.  We understand the YCJA and our main goal is explore every possible opportunity for alternative measures or diversion in order to steer young persons outside of the traditional criminal justice system and to avoid any form of criminal record.  When it comes to young persons, we not only deal with the criminal charges but also explore and address the underlying life issues that may have led to charges being laid in the first place.
