Charges of impaired driving, over 80, refuse breathalyser, or care and control, are among the most complicated areas of Canadian criminal law. What may seem like an impossible case to a layperson is a case full of legal issues to the trained eye of a professional.
The lawyers of Bytensky Prutschi Shikhman have extensive experience defending persons charged with impaired driving offences. We make use of every defence available to ensure the very best possible outcome. In 2005, Mr. Prutschi became one of a very small group of lawyers to become qualified to perform screening and evidentiary testing on the Intoxilyzer 5000 – the very same model used to take breath samples by every police department in Canada. This specialized certification provides our clients with a powerful edge in court when cross-examining police breath technicians. When interviewing lawyers under consideration for your impaired driving related case, be sure to ask them if they are certified Intoxilyzer Breath Alcohol Technicians.
Bytensky Prutschi Shikhman frequently employ the services of an expert toxicologist to assist us in attacking every aspect of the crown’s case.
Significant legislative changes have recently added an entirely new dimension to the way in which impaired driving cases must be defended. Experienced defence counsel must be aware of enhanced police powers, alternative sentencing options, and the limitations of expert toxicology evidence while being prepared to launch new and creative constitutional challenges where appropriate.
