Effective Defence of Drunk Driving Charges in Vancouver and Surrey, British Columbia

I have successfully defended clients facing all alcohol-related driving offences, including:

  • Impaired driving, including driving under the influence of drugs
  • Driving over 80
  • Refusal to provide a breath sample

There are technical defences to all of these charges. The approach that is most suited to your circumstances depends to a great deal on the facts of your case and your criminal record, if any.

Protecting Your License

Every impaired driving offence involves both criminal charges and issues regarding your driver's license. For some clients, retaining the ability to drive is as important as or more important than any consequences related to the criminal charge.

I will fight to help you retain your driving privileges and to minimize the criminal consequences of a drunk driving arrest. If you have received a Notice of Driving Prohibition (the blue form), you have only seven days to file a request for a review of the 90-day driving prohibition.
