Criminal Proceedings

As a highly respected Toronto criminal lawyer and a courtroom veteran with thirty-five years experience in criminal matters I consistently obtain the best possible results for my clients either through early negotiation or by way of all out combat at trial or in the conduct of appeals.

My criminal defence work includes cases of all descriptions and levels of seriousness from shoplifting, assault or driving offences to first degree murder and extradition. Whether it is one of the less serious offences or a more serious offence I understand that for you as a client your case is probably one of the most traumatic events that has ever happened to you. Regardless of the offence I strive for the best for all my clients.

You will be vigourously represented.

I have extensive experience fighting for my clients at all levels of the courts from the Ontario Court of Justice up to the Supreme Court of Canada including cases in the Federal Court of Canada.

I leave no stone unturned, am an original thinker and like to work closely with clients in pursuing their interests.

Because of my broad and lengthy experience I provide you with wise and sound advice.
