Have you received a drunk driving or impaired driving criminal charge or an Immediate Roadside Prohibition (IRP) in British Columbia?
We are lawyers with extensive experience fighting drunk driving charges and consequences, including fines and prohibitions. We work with you to win your case You need to act as soon as possible, because the time window to fight many of these charges is only 7 days* from the day you receive the prohibition.
We urge you to book a 1/2 hour in-office free consultation for your drunk driving matter. During that consultation, our lawyers review the paperwork you received from the police officer, and tell you your options.
Our office works with a client-centred, two stage process.
In the first stage, once retained, we file the challenge to the prohibition with the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles. We suggest the written prohibition because then there is a written record of the work we do for you. Once the challenge is filed, the Superintendent sends us all the paperwork filled out by the police officer. We review that paperwork. Unlike criminal court, the responsibility is with you to show that you didn't break the law (there are lots of ways to do this, and we know them all). We read over the paperwork and tell you the realistic chances for success. If you don't have a realistic chance for success, we tell you and refund the balance of your retainer if you tell us that you don't want to go ahead.
If you do want to go ahead (especially when we tell you there's a good chance of success!), we start the second stage. In this stage, we write a 10-20 page submission to the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles, including caselaw and details from your prohibition. We tell them why they should decide in your favour.
The Superintendent then has to make a decision within 21 days as to whether you get your licence back. If they can't make a decision within that time, they will give you your licence and car back.
If the Superintendent decides in your favour, you will receive your licence back that same day, your car will be released from impound, and you won't have to pay a relicencing fee ($750) or fine ($500). You will not have the Interlock on your car (approx $1300 for the year) or have to go through the Responsible Driver Program, all usual or common consequences of receiving an Immediate Roadside Prohibition.
