When my previous representative lost my trial I couldn’t believe I was sentenced to 7 days in jail. (SW Legal Services) appealed my case and got me out of jail and reduced the charges, I didn’t even lose my license.
Thank you for having my speeding ticket dismissed again!

Drivers convicted of certain driving-related offences have demerit points recorded on their records. It is a common misconception that drivers “lose” points due to convictions for certain traffic offences. In fact, a driver begins with zero demerit points and accumulates demerit points for convictions. Demerit points stay on your record for two years from the offence date. If you collect enough points, your drivers license could be suspended, or revoked.

Municipal By-Laws, Ontario Fire Code, and Regulatory Boards
In Ontario, municipalities and Regulatory boards have been granted the power to oversee niche areas of law, such as by-laws, liquor licenses, fire codes, building codes, and business licensing. Municipal by-laws and regulatory boards such as the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario are enforced under the Provincial Offences Act, and carry monetary penalties that range from fines of $500 – $150 000, plus possible imprisonment. Penalties may also include closure orders and various other terms of probation upon conviction.
If you or your business has been served with either an Offence Notice or Summons, you need legal advice so you understand the implications a conviction or order will have on yourself or your business. Future civil liability can often be affected by convictions on current charges. Most businesses can’t afford to be closed or lose their liquor license for a week or even a few days under court or board order. It’s important that you understand your rights and obligations before you enter the hearing to answer for either yourself or company. SW Legal Services PC has the skills and experience to protect your rights, and aggressively defend against the prosecution.
Contractors, builders and home owners can be served with a Stop Work order if you fail to obtain a building permit or build outside of the scope of your permit. This can delay your build and cost you thousands in fines and cause costly delays. Defying a Stop Work Order carries a fine of $1,000.00 – $10,000.00 per day if you breach the order. Understand your rights, get the best available representation.
SW Legal Services PC regularly appears before provincial courts, regulatory boards and agencies in the areas of York Region, Richmond Hill, Newmarket, Aurora, Toronto, the GTA, Mississauga, Brampton and Durham.
