What Clients Say
EXPERIENCE IN criminal law
When deciding on a lawyer to represent you in criminal matters, experience and results achieved are crucial considerations.
My experience is extensive and the results I achieve reflect the commitment to my clients and quality of work produced. I have spent my entire legal career practicing criminal law, both as a crown prosecutor, and as a defence lawyer. Throughout my time, working as a prosecutor, I prosecuted many high-profile cases and gained the inside knowledge that now gives me the cutting edge in defending my clients. I know and understand police and crown tactics and can use that to your advantage in knowing the strategies involving in obtaining the best possible outcome for your matter. As a defence lawyer, I have built a reputation of being a tireless and zealous advocate for my clients. I have successfully defended clients on a wide array of criminal offences from serious to minor, including property offences, firearms/weapons, sexual offences, drug offences, violent crimes, impaired driving, and murder.
With my extensive criminal law knowledge and experience, I am able to fully identify issues and defences in your case. Once I have reviewed the allegation against you, I am able to identify instances where your rights Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms may have been violated, or where the police have made errors. Once I have identified whether your rights were violated, and the errors the police have made, the remedies that I can seek from the court range from an exclusion of the evidence to a stay of proceeding to a withdrawal of the charges.
