All Of the charges that I am curently charged with are 2 fines: including Driving without a valid license, and careless Driving. And then there are two that I have to appear in Court for which are Having no insurance and leaving the scene of an accident.I have a very small previous record mostly all youth but nothing that pertains to these previous charges. The one that I am most conserned about is my leaving the scene of an accident. I have to appear in court on June 30 2009 and was wondering what I should do and what they can possible give me for that particular charge.

Then you are most likely looking at a fine.

What would make sense is for you to review the whole set of facts with a lawyer and get a legal opinion. The facts really matter in this type of case.

What you can do to find a lawyer is one of the following things.

You can contact the Law Society and use their Lawyer Referral Service. You will be given the names of three lawyers and can consult with any or all of them and the first half hour will be free.

Or you can check on a site called lexpert. This is a legal directory of leading lawyers and law firms throughout Canada and is well-respected by the legal community.
