James X.P. McGillivary has been specializing in impaired driving and other criminal code driving offences since 1988. Whether by alcohol or drugs, a charge of impaired driving or "over 80" under the criminal code can have devastating consequences for a person's personal and professional life. For over 30 years, James McGillivary has been representing those who have found themselves facing such charges. In the majority of cases, our clients have not had any contact with the legal system before; in such situations, the stress of facing allegations can be overwhelming. We understand this and are here to help.

The recent legislative changes regarding impaired driving as well as the current legal status of cannabis products have created an even more confusing and complicated legal area for the public to deal with. Use our four decades of experience to your advantage.
