Pre- And Post-Conviction Representation

I am Michael R. Shapray, and I am a lawyer who has the skills, knowledge, resources and experience to help you with any criminal matter you are facing. Whatever the issue, if I work with you, you can be assured I will be detailed in my approach and committed to helping you get the best possible result.

To learn more, please do not hesitate to contact my law firm online today or call 604-725-4300 to schedule a complimentary in-person consultation at either my Vancouver or Surrey offices.

Prepared, Professional, Determined

I pride myself on operating a law firm in British Columbia that offers criminal defence services that are truly comprehensive. This includes providing detailed assistance at every level of a criminal matter.

I represent clients in pre-conviction matters such as:

  • Police investigations: I am available to counsel clients who are under investigation by law enforcement, working to prevent charges from being laid by helping them cooperate with authorities when appropriate.
  • Bail hearings: I argue to have fair bail conditions set that will allow you to maintain as many rights as possible.

If you are arrested, I will work with the authorities, all relevant parties and your family throughout the process to ensure that every step is handled timely and in detail. If the police seized money or other items during an investigation, I will work to have the property returned if you have been subject to civil forfeiture proceedings.

Working to Help You if You Are Convicted

I also offer post-conviction assistance if you need to pursue:

  • Appeals and judicial review hearings: I know how to conduct a thorough review to see if there has been an error committed during the investigation or trial. If there is an issue to raise, I have the skills to pursue an appeal or petition for a judicial review.
  • Criminal record pardons: I can help you navigate the pardon process in an effort to put your criminal past behind you and pave the way for an easier time in society.

If you need help with any type of criminal procedural matter, time is of the essence. Contact me today at 604-725-4300 or email me to set up an in-person consultation. I offer two convenient office locations: one in Surrey and the other in Vancouver.
