An experienced Toronto criminal lawyer can help you understand the case and identify strengths to build the best defence.
An investigation begins when there is a complaint or a suspicion that an offence has been committed. If you are being investigated you may be in more trouble than you think. This is because the state has tremendous investigative resources.
Investigations in criminal cases are carried out by the police. In Toronto, this can be the Toronto Police, the OPP, or the RCMP. The police have many investigative powers including search and seizure, wiretap authorizations, surveillance, forensic analysis, and even detaining a person to investigate a crime. The authorities use these vast resources to put together the evidence and build the case for the prosecution.
If you are involved in a criminal investigation you should speak with a Toronto criminal lawyer. A knowledgeable criminal lawyer can help you navigate an investigation. In addition, an experienced criminal defence lawyer will take the necessary steps to strengthen your defence and turn the odds in your favour.
Criminal court case
At the law office of Deniz Sarikaya, we defend individuals in high stakes criminal litigation. We have over a decade of experience handling criminal cases at all levels of court throughout the criminal justice system.
In many cases, a criminal lawyer may be able to work out a favourable resolution. A resolution is an agreement with the crown attorney to end the prosecution. Sometimes a resolution will involve a guilty plea to a lesser crime for a lesser sentence. A resolution can be negotiated until the very end of the trial.
On the other hand, if a resolution is not possible the case will go to trial. An experienced criminal defence lawyer will prepare for a trial by reviewing the evidence; collecting further evidence; and, preparing for cross-examination of witnesses. In addition, an experienced criminal lawyer will hire an investigator; hire an expert; and, bring pre-trial applications where it is appropriate.
In the end, it is possible for a trial to end in a guilty verdict. That is far from anyone’s desired outcome. Therefore it makes sense to work with an experienced criminal lawyer to get the best result in your case.
Deniz understands that being charged with a criminal offence is a serious matter. That’s why he takes a hands-on approach with every case. He views each procedural step – from the time you are under investigation until the end of the case – as an opportunity to put forward the best defence and get positive results.
Many of Deniz’ clients have seen their cases dismissed after trial; walked away with lesser charges; got lower sentences than what the prosecution was seeking; or have had their charges withdrawn. Nothing is guaranteed in criminal court, and every case is different. However, his experience of success will give you the security you need to protect your liberty.
Not guilty of a crime? The law office of Deniz Sarikaya can help. Sometimes the police make mistakes in gathering evidence. Witnesses can lie or be unreliable. The evidence can be misleading. With an experienced Toronto criminal lawyer you can be sure to get a top of the line defence. Call 647-282-5777 to schedule a free consultation.
