Having an experienced defence attorney is crucial during a judicial pre-trial

A defendant is not present at a judicial pre-trial

The judicial pre-trial plays a pivotal role in the Canadian criminal justice system. The judicial pre-trial involves closed door discussions between a judge, the Crown attorney and your defence attorney. During a judicial pre-trial the facts of the case are discussed, the admissibility of certain evidence and the strengths and weaknesses of the case is analyzed. The judge will give his or her opinion on the merits of the case. A judge may also give their opinion on an appropriate sentence after a judicial pre-trial is complete. The judicial pre-trial also is an opportunity to resolve the case before going to trial by negotiating a plea bargain. When a judicial pre-trial is complete and the Crown attorney has decided to proceed with prosecution, the accused faces a difficult decision, whether to go to trial or enter a guilty plea

You must have confidence in your defence attorney

Since as a defendant, you will not be present during the judicial pre-trial. Who you choose to represent you may be one of the most important decisions you make. You will want to choose an attorney who not only has experience, but will always keep your best interests in mind.
