Defending Charges of Impaired Driving in Brampton & Orangeville

Throughout Ontario, an increasing number of arrests are being made for impaired driving and Driving Under Influence (DUI). Not only are the police more vigilant, but the legal consequences of these charges have become more severe over the years. You can face criminal charges if your blood alcohol content (BAC) is “80 and over”, even if your control over the vehicle hasn’t lessened.


At Richard Allman Law Office, we understand that being charged with a DUI is confusing because it’s often unexpected.

This is why we provide expert defence for impaired driving charges across Brampton and Orangeville. If you’re facing criminal charges of impaired driving, Richard Allman will assist you with the legal process and provide you with a solid defence. We’ve helped many people like you by defending their rights over the years. Rest assured, when you come to us, you will get the defence that you deserve.

Why Hire an Impaired Driving Lawyer in Orangeville or Brampton?

It is more important than ever to hire an impaired driving lawyer in Orangeville and the surrounding areas once you have been charged with drunk or impaired driving. Ontario’s penalties have become more severe over the past several years. For first offenders, what once was a slap on the wrist is now a hefty $1,000.00 fine.

Some Possible Consequences of Not Hiring an Experienced Criminal Lawyer to Defend You Are:

You May Lose Your Licence for a Period

You may lose your license absolutely for 3-6 months at a minimum, followed by a requirement to install an interlock device on any motor vehicle you operate for some time as ordered by the court. Try to imagine not being able to drive yourself anywhere. It is a possibility if you are convicted of impaired driving.

You’ll Lose a Lot of Money

That $1,000.00 minimum fine for impaired driving offences we quoted earlier? That may be just a “drop in the bucket” if you are a repeat offender. After your first offence, the judge can decide your fine amount. If you are convicted of any drinking or driving offence, you will need to take Ontario’s Back on Track program, which is a requirement to earn your licence back. You are assumed to absorb the cost of this program.

You May Have to Install an Ignition Interlock Device

If you are looking to reduce your driving suspension, not only will this intrusive device need to be installed in your vehicle, but you will need to do so at your own expense.

Possible Restrictions to Travel Outside Canada

Were you planning on travelling to the States or outside of Canada? You may be denied entry due to your impaired driving offence.
