Get Your Demerit Points Defence

Get Legal Action.

Traffic tickets earn you points that are known as Demerit Points. These points are permitted to accumulate before action becomes necessary. For example, after 6 points the Ministry of Transportation will be forced to tell you about your driving record in the form of a warning letter. 9 demerit points will force you to attend an interview in order for you to explain why the ministry should not suspend your license. After 9 points you may also be required to go through road, vision, and knowledge tests in order to determine your ability to drive competently and safely.

Failure in any test will mean a suspension of license. The same thing will happen if you do not attend the interview. 15 demerit points will automatically get you a license suspension for 30 days. If you do not surrender your license, you face a 2-year suspension. Legal Action's Speeding Tickets department dealing exclusively in handling unfair speeding tickets can be of some real assistance should you be in such a fix. We will work hard towards a complete elimination of all your traffic tickets.

Great Service! Legal Action (Phil) was very professional, experienced, knowledgeable and mindful of the situation. He did his fiduciary duty of handling my situation while not causing any inconvenience to my personnel time and well-being. He handled everything on his own while still communicating pertinent information. I highly recommend his services. Jessica (his paralegal) was also a great help in communications and coordination.

Phil is good at his work. My wife had two tickets which we had filed and missed the court dates for but Phil somehow got them reopened for an upcoming date and had one of them withdrawn due to lack of evidence and we're waiting on the second court date. Fingers crossed! Highly recommend Phil.

After a quick consultation over the phone we decided a strategy together and he handled the rest. His results exceeded my expectations!

Phil is a better salesman than lawyer. From the start he made a bunch of false promises, and I paid him $565 to help me out. He was sure I would win and told me the other guys had nothing on me. He made a phone call or 2, sent an e-mail and that was it. What an absolute waste of money. He didn't seem to care a whole lot about what was going on, and by the end of it was saying I had no case and had to make a compromise. I still had to pay a ton of money to the other people, wasted a bunch of time dealing with Phil, and highly do not recommend anyone using his service, unless you want to lose.

Legal Actions has worked a number of cases for me in the last couple years and they always manage to get my charges withdrawn. I highly recommend them if you live in Toronto or the GTA and have any outstanding tickets / cases.

Would you trust all these 5-star reviews with just 1 review on Legal Action praising Phil? Here is a true review. I got a ticket outside of GTA When he first looked at my ticket, he made me think that there is a mistake made by the police officer by saying, "The cop shouldn't have given you this ticket". Phil then said it was gonna cost me extra, because he has to travel to that remote location, and charged me extra. When the trial date was close, he said it was better to hand over my case to his "buddy" at the remote location, who knows the judge in that area very well. He basically handed over my case to his "buddy" to do all the dirty work, and just got the comission. I should have hired a paralegal, a good paralegal directly in that remote area. I paid Phil $$$ for my case, and HE LOST. I wouldn't trust Phil. He is very sneaky!

I was recommended to Phil by my cousin who used him to get out of multiple tickets. I had a 59 over ticket on a motorcycle. Phil talked me through the process, explained to me what arguments he would use to fight it and was honest with me about what he thought his chances were of winning. He took time to answer all my questions and doubts. Not going to lie, I was very doubtful he would win this, but he pulled through! Thanks Phil for the great service!
