Once charged with a criminal offence, the accused will be taken to the police station where they will be searched, questioned and given an opportunity to speak to a lawyer. They will be either released from the police station or held in custody for a bail hearing.
A bail hearing is a court proceeding where a Justice of the Peace or Judge will decide whether the accused will be released on bail or remain in custody pending the determination of the charges.
The court’s decision to release an accused on bail or have them remain in custody will be based on three factors:
An experienced criminal lawyer and a strong plan of release will significantly increase the likelihood of an accused being released on bail. Typically, a strong plan of release includes an honest and trustworthy surety.
A surety is an individual, often a family member or friend, who consents to supervising an accused person once released from custody. The court may require a surety to testify at the bail hearing and pledge a certain amount of money as assurance to the court for the proper supervision of the accused.
A bail hearing arises without warning. This is why our experienced bail lawyers are available 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.

R. v M.B.
Charge: Attempted Murder (Bail)
Result: Released on bail.
Excellent service, in the beginning I didn’t know what to think. I would definitely recommend Hossein Motevalli. All charges against me were withdrawn after a 6 day trial was scheduled!
I was extremely nervous when I was originally charged. Mr. Hossein Motevalli went to all my court dates and was able to have all charges against me withdrawn before trial.
I’ve been in and out of court half my life represented by numerous lawyers who were just doing their jobs until I walked into Mr. Hossein Motevalli’s office.
