Last year I was charged with not stopping at a red light in Toronto and I hit a car, no one was injured, as I am out of town I consulted a lawyer and he advised to fight it out. So I retained him to represent me. I now have a court date on Nov 14 and my lawyer asked for disclosure twice but he did not recieve it. I am kind of concerned as to why my lawyer does not want me to attend court as he says that due to not recieving the disclosure either I will be acquitted or he will adjourn the case , incase of adjourment he will then be in
a position to do a special motion for unreasonable delay. So do I or do not attend court. Any advice is appreciated.
Thanks

There is no requirement for you to attend if you have representation. Maybe you need a different lawyer if you don't trust the one who's currently representing you.

"LAWYER DOES NOT WANT ME TO ATTEND"
Very good question.This seems to be a standard request by most of these paid ticket-fighters and i would also like to know why.
My son had an illegal turn ticket being handled and was also asked to stay away.I had some concerns about this persons advice and i attended court to check on the proceedings---which was more than he did.Thats right--he was a no-show.I was forced to represent and thankfully the officer also was a no-show.
Unless your lawyer gives you a very good reason for you not being there---you are the one paying him and its your ass on the line---so i would definitely be there.Thats the ONLY way you will know what the heck happened.
This is not just a ticket but an accident resulted which is way more serious--IF U CAN ATTEND COURT, YOU SHOULD.
