No matter the accusations against you, we stand by these core values and strive to offer the best legal representation.
After being charged with an offence, a bail hearing is one of the first and most essential steps of a criminal case. It’s a determination of whether you’ll be released pending trial or you’ll remain in custody. Keeping in mind that some trial can take months or even years to be scheduled, it’s essential to enlist an experienced lawyer to help you secure a “judicial interim release” with favourable conditions. A successful bail hearing earns you your liberty and makes it easier to coordinate with your lawyers.
Kahlon Law has conducted many bail hearings. We understand that ‘liberty lost can never be regained,’ which is why we take our time to thoroughly prepare you and your surety, ensuring the best outcome of your bail hearing. Contact our Hamilton criminal defence lawyers to discuss your case.
Domestic violence is any assault that occurs within a domestic relationship, such as between a wife and husband or boyfriend and girlfriend. Although domestic violence is not a separate charge in the Canadian Criminal Code, the criminal justice system handles it differently from other assault cases. If you’re convicted of domestic violence, you’ll be facing drastic penalties, as it’s an assault-related charge. Therefore, it’s essential to get experienced representation from a criminal defence lawyer to protect your rights and fight against the charges.
Kahlon Law is well-versed in domestic violence cases and has successfully represented numerous clients facing such allegations over the years. If you’re charged with domestic violence or related offences, contact our lawyers for expert legal advice.
Youths have a whole life ahead of them, and a criminal charge can hinder all their opportunities. This is why the criminal justice system treats them differently from adults. When a youth (a person below the age of 18) is charged with a criminal offence, in most situations, their case is prosecuted under the Youth Criminal Justice Act (YCJA). Although the YCJA provides more protection and limits prosecution, youths can still face devastating consequences if found guilty of committing a crime. If you or your loved one are charged with a youth offence, retaining an experienced criminal defence lawyer is crucial, as they’ll fight the charges to get a favourable outcome.
Our attorneys have successfully defended many youths facing criminal charges, giving us the expertise to protect you against any youth offence. Call Kahlon Law for a free consultation on your case.

In Canada, drug charges are among the most severe allegations one can face.

According to the Canadian Criminal Code, an assault is the intentional application of force on another person without their consent. Assault can be categorized into assault with a weapon, aggravated assault, assault causing bodily, and more, depending on the severity of the act. Threats can also constitute an assault if the actions, deeds, or words indicate an impending application of force on another individual. Assault and threat charges may have severe consequences, including jail sentences, if found guilty.

Gun-related offences are among the most serious charges prosecuted in Canada. Some of them include trafficking and importation of firearms, possession of unregistered weapons, and carrying a concealed weapon. Whether you’re facing a standalone gun charge or a charge connected to another crime such as robbery, the potential consequences upon conviction are severe and long term. They can include incarceration and mandatory minimum penalties.

Theft and fraud charges can be brought against you if you acquire another person’s property through fraudulent means. The offences are categorized into two, depending on the value of the stolen property, i.e., offences over $5,000 and offences below $5,000. The consequences of a conviction on theft or fraud charges are serious, and they’re imposed depending on the offence, level of sophistication, and property value. Some of the consequences you may face include a permanent criminal record, fines, and a possible jail sentence.
To mitigate the charges laid against you, you should enlist an experienced criminal defence lawyer in Hamilton. Kahlon law is well-acquainted with the laws surrounding property offences, including theft and fraud.

Human trafficking charges are some of the most devastating charges that can be brought against you. This can happen if you recruit, transport, harbour, receive, transfer, or hold another person. Such allegations can also be brought against you if you control or influence someone’s movement for exploitation purposes, such as forced labour. If you benefit from indirectly facilitating human trafficking, you can also face charges. A human trafficking conviction has drastic penalties, including mandatory minimum incarcerations.
Kahlon Law has experienced human trafficking lawyers in Hamilton, who have successfully defended clients accused of such offences over the years. If you or someone you love are facing such allegations, Kahlon Law will protect your rights and fight to get you the most favourable outcome.
A person commits sexual assault when, without consent from the other person, they perpetrate acts such as kissing, fondling of private parts, or forced intercourse. In other terms, sexual assault involves the violation of the sexual integrity of another person. Such charges are grave as convictions carry devastating repercussions, including lengthy jail sentences and addition to the Sexual Offender Registry Act. Even without a conviction, the allegations can damage your social standing.

If you’re under investigation or have been arrested for a sexual assault allegation, contact our criminal defence lawyers in Hamilton.

Robbery entails the use of force, violence, or threats to use violence to acquire, or try to acquire, property. It covers many situations, such as street muggings and armed bank robbery. Since it’s a violent offence, the Crown will fights to keep you in custody, without bail, awaiting your trial. The potential penalties upon a conviction of a robbery charge are dire, including mandatory minimum jail sentences.
With such severe consequences upon conviction of a robbery offence, it’s advisable to enlist the services of an experienced defence attorney to protect your rights and liberties. Kahlon Law has years of experience successfully defending clients against robbery and related charges. Contact us for a free consultation on your case.
One commits mischief if they willfully destroy or damage property, render it useless, ineffective, dangerous, or inoperable, or interfere with its lawful use. This also applies to personal data.

Can I get rid of a criminal record?
After getting convicted, one of the consequences that can befall you is a criminal record. This usually affects your ability to get employment or residency. Getting rid of a criminal record requires a waiting period as one can apply to get it set aside by the Parole Board through record suspension. This is only possible 5 years after a summary offence conviction and 10 years after an indictable offence conviction.
Note that in some cases, one cannot apply for a record suspension. For example, if you were convicted for sexually assaulting a child, you’re not eligible for a record suspension.
The Parole Board can revoke your record suspension if you’re convicted of another crime or found to have lied during your application process.
The police have contacted me. Should I speak to them?
If the police contact you, remember that you have the right to remain silent as guaranteed by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Even if the police say that they only want your help in an investigation, or to hear your side of the story, know that anything you say can be used as evidence against you. Therefore, if the police want to talk to you, contact a criminal defence lawyer for legal advice.
