Ontario Criminal Defence Lawyers
The law firm of Hicks Adams is well-equipped to successfully handle parole hearing. As one of the largest and most experienced criminal law firms in Canada, we understand this unique process. Our lawyers have an impressive record of getting people out from behind bars and back into the community so they can move forward with their lives after a criminal conviction.
People convicted of crimes are eligible for parole after they have served one third of their sentence. For example, if a person is sentenced to fifteen years, that person is eligible for parole at five years. However, this is only true in the case of normal sentences. Life sentences have different rules for parole eligibility.
Success in Parole Hearings
Parole hearings are significantly different than other hearings involved in the criminal justice system. These hearings take place before the parole board. Our lawyers have handled numerous parole hearings, so we know how to succeed. Our goal is to get a person out from behind bars on parole with the least restrictive terms possible. We take pride in being able to help people move on with their lives, under the supervision of a parole officer. We work with people to ensure that parole is successful, and they do not have to go back to prison.
