Pierre J.-L. Plourde, Criminal Defence and Family Law for Durham Region
When you have been charged with a crime, or when you are having a problem that has to do with your family, you need somebody who can provide you with efficient, experienced legal help at a reasonable cost.
At the office of Pierre J.-L. Plourde, I can provide you with legal guidance and practical help through this part of your life. I can do so wherever is most convenient to you, and will travel to you anywhere in the Durham Region.
I am also one of very few lawyers in the Region who provides legal services in French as well as English.
Law That Touches Your Personal Life
Whether I am helping you decide to plea or go to trial on a charge, helping you draft a marriage contract (also called a prenuptial contract) or separation agreement, or guiding your family through the youth criminal justice system or child protection services, I will give you the information you need, and help you understand your rights and options.
- Criminal defence: I see all kinds of criminal charges, including assault, drug-related charges, and property crimes. I will ensure that your rights are protected and that the police cannot use any evidence against you that is gathered without strict adherence to your rights. I will also help you navigate areas of law with which many people are unfamiliar, including firearms law and the legal system as it applies to young offenders.
- Family: Family law concerns some of the most personal areas of your life. Whether you are beginning a relationship, or going through a divorce, or dealing with child protection services, I can help you protect your family.
