As a criminal lawyer at Sanders Criminal Law, I believe in my clients or prospective clients having as many tools as possible to make informed decisions. That is why I emphasize the importance of getting legal advice as soon as you think you may be under investigation, especially for allegations that I defend such as sexual assault, sexual interference, sexual exploitation, invitation to sexual touching, child luring, possession of child pornography.
It is also why it is important that in choosing a criminal lawyer who you can easily communicate with, who you are comfortable with and in whom you have confidence to guide you through what can be a complicated and nuanced process.
As a criminal lawyer with 28 years’ experience, I also subscribe to the view that as a client, the more you understand about the charges you’re facing and the issues involved, the more you can help me help you.
This starts with a general understanding of how Canadian criminal law and procedure works. If you are charged with a crime, you can gain some understanding by reading the Your Criminal Case and What I Defend areas of my website.
While I have attempted to provide comprehensive information in these sections to provide that general knowledge, I have found over my years as a criminal lawyer, especially as a sexual assault lawyer, that there are certain specific questions that come up again and again regarding the investigation and defence of sexual offences such as sexual assault, sexual interference, sexual exploitation, invitation to sexual touching, child luring, possession of child pornography particularly.
As a result, for 2016, I have created this criminal defence blog to author and post a series of articles that address some of these issues. I hope that you will find them useful and enlightening.
As always, it is important to emphasize that while these articles reflect commonly given legal advice by Vancouver sexual assault lawyers, it is not necessarily advice given in all cases. Therefore, you should seek legal advice regarding your own specific circumstances and your own case before relying upon anything that appears on any legal website.
