Kahlon Law has a record of getting accused people out of prolonged and unjustified police custody in Vaughan and other Ontario locations. The firm has extensive experience in bail courts for various charges including, manslaughter, firearm offences, domestic assaults, drug offences, and many others.
Domestic Assault is an assault in which the perpetrator and the victim share a domestic relationship. The firm understands that this is a sensitive issue dealt with aggressively by law enforcement agencies, and that’s why Kahlon Law takes special care in these cases to protect our clients’ rights.
When a young person between the ages of 12 to 17 years is charged with an offence, they are not tried like their adult counterparts. Instead, they are dealt with in accordance with specific legislation known as the Youth Criminal Justice Act (YCJA). The firm harnesses the knowledge of law to secure the rights of our vulnerable clients. Get in touch with us to know about the intricacies and special care involved in representing a young person.
Kahlon Law is experienced in defending allegations of impaired driving and driving over 80, commonly referred by the American term, “DUI”. Our firm harnesses the power of law to secure the rights of our clients.
As the Canadian drug crisis remains disturbingly high, those charged with related cases face legal risks that are greater than ever. Kahlon Law has a strong track record in defending all types of criminal offences related to drugs.
Kahlon Law is experienced in defending clients charged with assault. The charge may come under different names like domestic assault, sexual assault, assault with a weapon, aggravated assault, etc.
We also have a strong record in defending cases of threat, including uttering, which is considered a crime in Canada. An uttering threat charge can arise out of a conflict between individual, domestic partners, workplace disputes, etc and can occur either in person or via social media or text message or any other mode of communication. There can be many defences available to an uttering threat charge and Kahlon Law can help you understand your options.
Using, pointing, carelessly storing, and in most cases, possessing a firearm are serious criminal offences. Unlike many other offences, a person who is found guilty can be ordered to suffer long and in certain circumstances, a mandatory minimum term of imprisonment. Kahlon Law has had a great amount of success in obtaining bail for clients charged with firearm related charges.
Theft charges can range from a simple shoplifting case to theft of property worth thousands of dollars. Simply stated, whoever moves any movable property out of the possession of any person without that person’s consent, intending to dishonestly take it, commits a theft. Meanwhile, like theft, fraud is also divided into two categories: Fraud under $5000 and Fraud over $5000. Kahlon Law can review the evidence in your case and the various options available.
A person who engages in human trafficking is likely to also commit other crimes, including drug trade, abduction, sex crimes, smuggling, and others. When arrested for such charges, the person will need a good criminal defence lawyer to device a strategy to refute the allegations.
Kahlon Law is experienced in defending clients charged with sexual assault. Depending on the type of assault, the accused may be tried summarily, or by indictment. If tried by indictment, one has the liberty to choose the mode of trial. They can be tried by a judge alone, or by a jury and a judge. A Criminal Defense Lawyer will help you choose your best course of action.
A person is accused of this crime when he/she breaks and enters a place and commits an indictable offence, or even enters with the intent to commit an indictable offence. This means that even if someone does not commit any offence on the property, they can still be charged with Breaking and Entering on the allegation that they intended to commit another criminal offence such as theft. If you have been arrested, it is advised that a good Criminal Defense Lawyer should be contacted so that you being a layman in terms of legal issues may not make a grave mistake.
In simplest terms, ‘Mischief’ means causing damage to someone else’s property. Most Mischief related offences are hybrid offences, meaning the crown will determine whether they wish to process summarily or by indictment. It is important to note that most mischief convictions will unlikely result in any jail time. Depending on the property damages, along with the circumstances of the accused and the offence itself, a defence counsel might be able to negotiate a withdrawal of the criminal charges if restitution is paid for the damage caused.

Why do I need a criminal defence lawyer?
Anybody who has been criminally charged can ensure the best possible outcome for their future by hiring an experienced criminal defence lawyer. If the finances are limited, you may seek the help of a lawyer who is retained by Legal Aid. Kahlon Law understands that not everybody has the financial means to defend themselves, so we welcome clients of private entities and those who have been accepted for Legal Aid. The firm also accepts payment plans.
I want to apply for Legal Aid. What should I do?
If you cannot afford a lawyer, and if the Government grants you a Legal Aid Certificate, Kahlon Law is prepared to help you. For more information about Legal Aid in Ontario, and to confirm whether or not you qualify, please visit their website.
What is bail, and what happens at a bail hearing?
A release on Bail from the court allows a person who has been charged with a criminal offence to stay out of jail while awaiting trial or any other result from the case (ex. a withdrawal of charges or a guilty plea).
During a bail hearing, the government presents the case to the court, mostly based on the police summary of the offence. The defence attorney then presents evidence primarily through the testimony of the potential surety and works to convince the court towards the release of the accused. A bail hearing requires formulating a carefully crafted plan of release, which is least onerous in the given circumstances. A poorly run bail hearing can have disastrous consequences on the accused’s freedom pending trial.
I think I am being investigated for a crime, but I have not yet been charged. What can I do?
If you think you are being investigated for a crime in Canada but haven’t been charged, your most important right is to remain silent (under the protection of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms).
If the police call you in for a possible criminal offence, it will either be to take a statement or effect arrest. When this happens, you should call a defence lawyer immediately to assist you throughout the entire process. If you see the police and are detained, request to speak a lawyer.
If I get arrested, what should I do?
It is your foremost right to remain silent and call for a lawyer before saying anything. It is your legal right not to speak, though you should provide your name, and date of birth.
I have been arrested for theft. Is there a way for me to avoid jail time?
Theft charges in Canada are classified into several categories, and the penalties will depend on the facts and the strategies that your lawyer uses. If you have no criminal record, your lawyer can help you prevent having one as this could have a major impact on your future. If you have been arrested and charged, then you will need to call a good defence lawyer to help you, whether or not you have actually committed the offence.
I was just released after being charged with crime. When is my first court date, and what happens next?
If you have just been released and then have an upcoming court hearing in Vaughan, you will find the details in your release documents, particularly the one that says “Promise to Appear.” In other less grave cases, it could be titled “Appearance Notice.” Such records will contain your first court appearance dates and when to provide your fingerprints to the police. You cannot be absent on both dates, and failure to appear will result in further criminal cases filed against you.
What are your fees?
