Areas of practice and legal expertise
In matters involving criminal allegations, it is essential to retain counsel at the earliest possible opportunity to protect your rights and interests. Our areas of practice include criminal defence, professional discipline and regulatory offences, and extradition. We represent clients at all stages: investigation, trial, and at the appellate level.
Your effective defence begins with a full understanding of the elements of the alleged offence and the allegations against you. Your criminal lawyer plays a critical role in securing an acquittal at trial. As experienced defence counsel, we represent clients on all criminal offences.
If you have been found guilty of a criminal offence, you may wish to appeal the conviction, the sentence, or both. Our firm is frequently retained on many challenging appeals. Combining strong written and oral advocacy skills, we put forth your strongest and most persuasive arguments.
Professional discipline & regulatory matters
Our firm has a broad range of experience before various professional regulatory bodies and administrative tribunals in Ontario. Our past experience includes representation before the Law Society of Upper Canada, the Toronto Police Service Tribunal, the Ontario Civilian Police Commission, the Ontario Securities Commission, and the Licence Appeal Tribunal.
If you are wanted for alleged crimes in another country and are facing extradition, you are entitled to a hearing. If ordered committed for extradition, you are also entitled to make submissions to the Minister of Justice on surrender. Having counsel experienced in this area is crucial. Our firm represents clients in extradition matters for all offences, including murder, and is well-versed with the relevant statutory provisions and procedures.
