It is always recommended to obtain legal advice before speaking to the police.

Depending on the nature of your offence, the police with either release you after arrest with a promise to appear in court at a specified date, or hold you in custody for a bail hearing. If the offence occurred in Etobicoke, you will have to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Etobicoke, which has jurisdiction over the area.
If you remain in custody for your bail hearing, the police will bring you to an Etobicoke courthouse in front of the judge within 24 hours after your arrest. While you are in custody, your criminal defence lawyer will advise you on the best course of action, and will start working on your release.

When you are brought to court for your bail hearing, your criminal defence lawyer will speak to the Crown on your behalf and suggest a bail plan. The Crown may then consent to release based on your plan, or contest your bail. If the Crown seeks detention, your criminal lawyer will advocate for your bail and explain to the court why less strict bail conditions are appropriate.

Igor is the most skilled and amazing attorney I have ever met in my entire life.

In December 2022, I was wrongfully accused of 2 serious charges under my name however, Igor took care of it from the beginning and finally all of those wrongful charges are withdrawn and now I feel much better and at ease. I am very glad that Igor could help me throughout the hard process and bring out the best result possible! Also, what I want to pinpoint out for the most is that he picks up the call by himself and you get to contact directly with him whenever you have questions or want updates throughout the process. I know that it could be tiring for lawyers who have other clients at the moment but Igor always keep a close contact with his client and I was always able to talk to him directly when I needed for the last 11 months. At last, I wish all the best for Igor and hope that god blesses throughout his career and may he be able to offer his professionalism to help other people in need. Thank you Igor :)js_loader
