The aim of your lawyer is to ensure that custody or jail be considered by the Court only as a matter of last resort.

At Pyzer Criminal Lawyers, we realize that a criminal allegation in the justice system has very significant implications on the psychological health and well-being of people, their communities, and their families. For example, a young client may be forced to change schools and deal with other peer-related dynamics, placing them under considerable stress.

Our objective, first and foremost, is to avoid a criminal record for the young person. To achieve this, we are prepared to negotiate with the Crown Attorney so that the charge is withdrawn, and, if the negotiations are unsuccessful, conduct a contested trial.

Every criminal lawyer at our firm has a strong reputation in the criminal law community for integrity and aggressive advocacy.

This reputation works to the benefit of our clients when we negotiate on their behalf with the Crown Attorney’s office, and when we appear for a young person in court. We can make a difference!

Frequently Asked Questions

What Age Is a Young Offender in Canada?

A youth offender is defined under the Youth Criminal Justice Act as a person who is at least twelve years old but less than eighteen years old. It is imperative that a person charged under the Youth Criminal Justice Act obtain legal advice from an experienced criminal lawyer because the criminal justice system can have devastating consequences on a young person.

Can a Child Under 12 Be Charged in Canada?

A youth under the age of 12 cannot be charged with a crime in Canada. While this person cannot be charged in criminal court, he or she could be treated by the mental health system or apprehended by child protective services. If your child is under 12 and has been involved in a criminal incident, we recommend contacting a criminal lawyer at our firm to ensure your child's rights are protected.
