Criminal law covers many different types of actions and behaviours. Read our criminal law practice areas below:

If you are charged with a drug-related offence, do not plead guilty before consulting with one of our lawyers. We understand that all criminal allegations are serious, and at Calvin Barry Professional Corporation, we have successfully defended numerous types of drug offences under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.

Refuse to Provide Breath or Blood Sample

If a police officer has asked you to provide a breath sample to establish whether you have been drinking and driving, you should be aware of your rights. Calvin Barry is committed to providing representation for his clients throughout the refusal to provide a sample, as well as any related criminal charges that can arise from such a matter.

Vehicle Offences

You could potentially face increasingly severe fines, and being charged with a driving offence can be distressing, no matter how little the offence. Having competent legal counsel can make all the difference! If you're charged with speeding, driving without a licence or with a disqualified licence, we can make sure we advise you of all your options and minimize your penalty.

Domestic Assault

Domestic assault is a criminal charge that results from a conflict between two people in a domestic relationship. The relationship does not necessarily have to be husband and wife. It can be boyfriend and girlfriend, same-sex relationships, roommates or even siblings. There are various paths toward the successful conclusion of a "domestic" assault case, and our team of trial lawyers has the resources and experience to assess the strengths and weaknesses of each particular case and assist you in reaching a successful outcome.

Criminal Defences

We offer a comprehensive defence at Calvin Barry Law, whatever the circumstances of your case may be. We are prepared to address every possible scenario - posting bail, dealing with false accusations, missing witnesses or complainants, and more. We will give the judge a comprehensive background of all factors that allow the judge to see both sides of the case instead of just hearing just the complainant’s side, which may result in a ruling against you.

Firearm And Weapons

A firearm is a weapon that can inflict serious bodily harm or death through a bullet or other matter. In Canada, there are strict laws against the possession and transportation of firearms. If an offence is committed the person can be punished on summary conviction, or imprisonment for up to 2 or 5 years, depending on the offence.

If you are convicted of a firearms or weapons offence our firm will provide you with all of the resources needed to analyze your case. With Calvin Barry and his team of trial lawyers, we will be able to defend you regardless of the severity of the alleged firearms and weapons charge you are facing.

Fraud

Fraud is committed when one allegedly deceives, falsifies or by other fraudulent means, defrauds the public or a person of any property, money, valuable security or any service. As in all criminal cases, entering a plea of guilty to a fraud charge can have profoundly serious consequences and may affect your work, immigration status, reputation, family and personal freedom.

Our firm will aggressively fight for your rights and raise every defence available to defend the allegations against you. Calvin Barry and his team have successfully represented individuals charged with various types of fraud, and fraud-related offences.

White-Collar Crime

White-collar crime is a crime committed in a corporate or occupational setting that results in a monetary gain.If one is convicted of white-collar crime they are at risk of losing their job or having their license revoked. In consequence, this criminal record can lead to decreased freedom, difficulty finding a job, travelling, and family life.

Calvin Barry Professional Corporation has the experience and resources to understand the type of white collar crime and assist you in the best possible way during your trial. With Calvin Barry and his team, you will be given the time and legal expertise that can deal with each unique case.

Drug-Related Offences

The penalties associated with convictions for drug offences vary depending on the severity of the offence, but even convictions for relatively minor offences can result in a criminal record that could impact employment prospects and more. Major drug offence convictions can result in lengthy periods of jail time. The Calvin Barry Professional Corporation has the resources needed to defend you regardless of the severity of the alleged drug charge you are facing.
