A Crown Pre-Trial is a meeting with the Crown
Attorney about your case. It is at this time that
the Crown will usually provide its position on a
guilty plea. There will also be some discussion
as to how much court time will be required should
your matter go to trial. A Judicial Pre-Trial is
similar to a Crown Pre-Trial, with the addition
of a Judge. The Judge will attempt to streamline
the process by identifying what the triable
issues are and what areas (if any) the two
parties are in agreement on. As is the case with
a Crown Pre-Trial, a Judicial Pre-Trial will
determine the time estimate for trial or, if
necessary, preliminary hearing (for more serious
matters).

How I Can Help Crown Attorneys are used to
meeting with lawyers. Advocacy starts at the
Pre-Trial stage and after digesting every aspect
of your Disclosure, I will be in a position to
effectively utilize any weaknesses in the
allegations against you. This can lead to a more
favourable position on a guilty plea (should you
choose to go that route), or even the
stay/withdrawal of all of the charges against you.

Judges appreciate lawyers who are well-prepared
and aware of all potential issues in the case. As
your advocate, I will ensure that these issues
receive the attention they deserve, with the
requisite amount of court time being set aside to
deal with them.
