About Criminal Code Help

About Us

Criminal Code Help (CCH) is a comprehensive resource for understanding the laws and procedures of the Canadian justice system. Our website is designed to provide clear and concise information about a wide range of criminal offences. We aim to empower individuals facing criminal charges by providing them with the knowledge and resources they need to navigate the legal process. Please keep in mind that the information provided on this website is not a substitute for professional legal advice.


In addition to detailed explanations of different types of offences and their potential penalties, we also offer information about hiring a lawyer to represent you and using legal resources to help with your case. We understand that facing criminal charges can be overwhelming, which is why we strive to make the legal system more accessible and understandable to those unfamiliar with it.

Finding a Lawyer

This website is an informational guide to Canada's criminal justice system and is not a substitute for professional legal advice. If you are facing criminal charges, we strongly recommend consulting with a qualified defence lawyer who can offer specialized guidance for your unique situation and effectively advocate for you. While choosing the right lawyer is a profoundly personal decision, we aim to assist you by offering a directory of criminal lawyers in Canada. We are continually working to enhance the quality and accuracy of this directory to serve your needs better. However, we encourage you to conduct your own due diligence when selecting legal representation.


If you encounter any discrepancies or have suggestions for improvement regarding our directory, your feedback is most welcome.

CCH Verified Lawyers

Some pages on our website are sponsored by lawyers in good standing with their respective provincial legal associations, providing a reliable resource for those facing criminal charges. We encourage you to explore our directory, which features a wide array of defence lawyers. Those designated as CCH Verified are marked with a small badge beside their name and offer clickable contact details for easy communication. This designation serves as a helpful starting point for finding a legal professional in your area who aligns with your specific needs.

It's important to clarify that not being CCH Verified does not imply inferior service. Instead, it simply indicates that the lawyer has not yet chosen to undergo the CCH Verification process on our platform. Regardless of a lawyer's CCH Verification status, we strongly advocate conducting your own due diligence to secure the legal representation that best suits your circumstances.
