Impaired Driving

Every year thousands of people find themselves charged with drinking and driving offences.

The law in this area is extremely complex.  James Zegers successfully defends drivers charged with impaired driving and can help you keep your licence.

Defending drinking and driving offences requires a careful review of the facts and a thorough knowledge of the law.  Issues that arise include the timing of the breath tests and the constitutionality of the initial police stop.  Too often people plead guilty to a drinking and driving offence without carefully considering all possible defences.

With twenty years of experience, James Zegers can help you keep your license and your livelihood.

If you have been charged with a drinking and driving offence, call James Zegers at 519-673-0440 for a free initial consultation.

Driving While Suspended

The courts take a dim view of people who are convicted of driving while suspended.  Even a first offender for driving while suspended is often sentenced to 30 days in custody.

If you are charged with driving while suspended you need a lawyer who can explain to the court why jail is not an appropriate sentence for you.

Highway Traffic Act 

Offences such as speeding, driving while suspended or careless driving fall under the Highway Traffic Act.  While not criminal offences, convictions for Highway Traffic Act offences can result in fines, increased insurance premiums, and in exceptional cases, jail.

James Zegers paralegal staff can be relied upon to provide economical solutions for clients facing Highway Traffic Act charges.  Charges of speeding and careless driving are often reduced to lesser offences.
