The movement of goods and the collection of duties in and out of Canada are controlled under the Customs Act; however, this act is not to be confused with a taxing statute.


When you have been accused of a driving offense under the criminal act, there can be serious legal consequences that could impact you for the rest of your life, if those convictions stay on your permanent driving record. An experienced criminal defense lawyer can help you fight those offenses in a court of law, ending with a reduced sentence, or having the case dismissed.


There are many ways that a person could be charged with robbery, depending on the seriousness of the crime. Robbing a bank at gunpoint is a serious offense, whereas stealing someone’s computer may not be as serious.


When you are summoned to court for any reason, you must appear. If you have been charged with breaking the law – even minor traffic offenses – you must appear in court unless told otherwise by an authorized court official. Failing to do so could lead to serious consequences for you.


Under the Extradition Act, Canada has the legal responsibility and right to extradite a person to another country, as long as the person being extradited is currently in Canada, and the country he or she will be going to is one of Canada’s extradition partners.


At the Law Office of Kalina & Tejpal, we always put your best interests first. We offer you a variety of legal advice, including arrest advice. You may not understand – or know – your rights as they pertain to an arrest, which is why you can count on us to give you the right advice and counsel.

Mr. Kalina and Ms. Tejpal are a great team. I was wrongfully charged with a very serious offence and they helped me get through this awful time in my life. It took over two years before the charges were dismissed. They told me to be patient and kept me updated all of the time. Even though it was hard to go through this, they remained steady and kept me calm. I am grateful to them for freeing me from what could have been a terrible outcome. They always treated me with respect and dignity. I hope that you don't have any trouble with the police, but if you do, Mr. Kalina and Ms. Tejpal are the best lawyers to help you.

Mr. Kalina was my lawyer for my aggravated robbery charges. I was really afraid because I am a permanent resident, however, he really sat down and explained the process to me. He understood the seriousness of my case and approached it methodically. Even with his busy schedule he always made sure he had time to answer my questions. I highly recommend this firm who might find themselves to be in my position.

When I was looking for lawyers to file my application for immigration in spousal category after my marriage with Kamaljyot, I consulted many lawyers however I did not feel convinced with anyone. To me they were more interested in higher fees only. I was just wandering here and there.Then I talked to my friend Dr V Jain about finding a well reputed Lawyer and Dr Jain outrightly named lawyers John Kalina and Sweta Tejpal. In few words he said they were the most HONEST LAWYERS , Dr Jain had already dealt with them in his immigration case as well . So he knew them. When I met Sir John Kalina and Madam Sweta, my joy blew no bounds, I was at the right place. No big charges asked, priority were on my work, everything was done very honestly. My whole application was prepared thoroughly as if it was their PERSONAL FILE. Never seen such nice people in my life. My case was tough to clear for both age wise being fifty plus and second time marrying. But they did it. Lastly my application was approved after interview . They even gave me multiple interview preparation sessions which nobody gives. It was an EXCEPTIONAL commitment to my case. I requested them to take some more fees for this extra work however they outrightly refused. Such an honest commitment to one's work is RARE. LASTLY, I WILL REMAIN INDEBTED & GRATEFUL TO MOST RESPECTED SIR JOHN KALINA & MADAM SWETA TEJPAL , With heartfelt regards, Rakesh Dhand & Kamaljyot
