Lawyers for Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms Violations

Since 1982, the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms has protected the rights of the citizens of Canada against abuses by government. Many people panic when they are arrested and forget about their rights, or they are simply not aware of their rights. This is why it is so essential to have an experienced lawyer by your side as soon as possible.
