Don’t plead guilty to your ticket before speaking with Mr. Wolson!
A conviction under the Highway Traffic Act or Criminal Code can result in points against your licence. In some cases MPI will suspend your licence. Police issued and photo radar tickets must be filled out accurately or they may not stand up in court.
Mr. Wolson has dealt with thousands of Highway Traffic Act and Criminal Code tickets and knows how to exploit errors that are often overlooked by the untrained eye. If there is no error on the ticket, a plea deal is almost always an option to reduce the fine amount on the ticket. If you have more than one ticket, Mr. Wolson is usually able to negotiate with the Prosecutor to drop one or more of the tickets, which means they won’t count against your licence and you will not have to pay the fine.

Show Cause Hearing
If you have been convicted of one or more Highway Traffic Act or Criminal Code offences you may receive a notice from MPI to attend a show cause hearing. Once you have one or more convictions on your drivers abstract, MPI will typically place you on a probationary period of two years. If you are convicted of a new ticket during that probationary period, you will be suspended and notified of your right to attend a show cause hearing. While attendance at the hearing is not compulsory, just know that if you ignore it and don’t respond, your suspension will take effect. If you are not yet suspended and MPI is considering a suspension, and you fail to respond to the notice, your licence will be suspended.
It is highly recommended that you attend the show cause hearing and that you are properly prepared for the questions you will be asked. The show cause investigators have a specific criteria and list of facors that they consider in determining whether to suspend your licence, and for what duration.
Mr. Wolson has extensive experience attending show cause hearings with his clients. He knows what the investigators are looking for in terms of showing cause why your licence should not be suspended, and how to overcome or reduce the length of a potential licence suspension, if one must be imposed.
You are entitled to have a lawyer be present with you at your hearing. Contact Mr. Wolson to book a free consultation and assist you with the process.
Licence Suspension Appeal Hearing
In the event that your licence has been suspended by MPI following a Show Cause hearing, you have the right to appeal that suspension to the Licence Suspension Appeal Board. In order to file an appeal, you must comply with the checklist which can be found on the LSAB website. The checklist includes an application form, document checklist, a letter outlining your intended purpose of driving, days of the week and hours you wish to drive, as well as other documents if you own your own company.
Its important to know that the LSAB will only grant a temporary licence exception for limited purposes, such as for employment, medical reasons, or daycare etc. They have a two pronged criteria that you must address. First, that a suspension of your licence amounts to an exceptional hardship. Second, that to reinstate your licence is not contrary to the public interest. There are a number of factors that will influence their decision to grant or deny you driving privileges.
You have the right to appear at your hearing with a lawyer. Mr. Wolson has attended hundreds of hearings and has successfully obtained work/family related driving privileges for the majority of his clients.
