So a few days ago I was pulled over by OPP on hwy400 (Barrie) and had my bike impounded for a "racing" charge. I'm looking for a good lawyer in the Toronto/Barrie area that can help with this. Would be great if anyone can provide contacts. This is a BS charge and doubt if the officer has much evidence, disclosure will have to wait for a couple weeks.

Talk to "Pointts" or similar paralegal service. They will probably get it knocked down to a very minor charge, eg., 2 pt speeding charge, which will probably help insurance and fine amount. You will have to pay them quite a few hundred dollars.

It worked for me a few years back. Was doing 120 in a 60 and crashed while I was accelerating away from cop. ( I know, stupid young kids ) Initially I got charged with careless driving and racing. In the end all I got was a two point charge and my bike back. Good luck

I was not speeding, and there is no speeding charge on any of the papers. As far as I remember the officer said I was aggressive with my lane change(s) and did not want to give me a chance to talk, he snapped the key right out of the ignition, he was so aggressive at first I thought he's going to tackle me to the ground or worse yet pull out his gun, kinda traumatizing. So I have to appear in court in Barrie to find out more.
Lets say that I am found innocent, all the fees paid for impound, tow and license renewal will not be reversed - thats adding insult to injury.

I got charged with "careless" for the same reason and in a similar fashion, the officer was very aggressive. I hired OTT Legal and after a second request for the disclosure, the prosecutor dropped the charge due to insufficient evidence.

Try Redline, I hear they're very experienced with these kind of cases and a solid team to work with.

All the best!

Thanks everyone for your help, really appreciate it. I'll be getting in touch with the legal people and provide an update on the case when one becomes available.

Check to see if after your innocent verdict, civil court may allow you the right to get the funds back re towing impound etc
