Being accused of a crime may be the most stressful event you will ever experience in your lifetime. If you are reading this, it is likely that you or a loved one have been arrested and charged by the police. Your reputation has been tarnished, your liberties have been restricted, and now you have to defend yourself in court. You’ve been through a lot, but unfortunately, this is just the beginning.
Next, the government will use all of the resources at its disposal to prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law. With unlimited money, power, and resources at their disposal, they have the means to see this through.
We understand that being merely accused of a crime can be extremely stigmatizing. But being found guilty can lead to its own host of significant ramifications.
Even if you are not sentenced to a jail term, a criminal conviction can have profound consequences on your future, such as:
- Loss of employment,
- Loss of family and friends,
- Loss of immigration status,
- Loss of opportunity, and
- Loss of personal self-worth.
As hard as it may seem, remember that you are presumed innocent throughout this process and that you are doing the right thing by exploring your legal options.
Having a Lawyer on Your Side
Navigating the criminal justice system is overwhelming. Up against the government’s unlimited resources, mounting a successful defence can feel like an insurmountable task.
This is where we can help. Our job is to level the playing field, or better yet, turn the odds in your favour. As the saying goes, “knowledge is power”. One of the first things we will do is help you understand your rights and the defences available to you. You have a right to know every detail of the allegations against you, and we will work with you to uncover and scrutinize every aspect of your case.
Choosing the Right Legal Team
Unlike sole practitioners, with us you effectively get multiple lawyers for the price of one. Someone is always around to have a second look or offer a second opinion. Especially in an emergency, there is always someone available to help.
Our team of criminal defence lawyers is constantly researching and writing about the latest and best legal defence strategies. We also have a unique opportunity to interact with Criminal Court Judges and Crown Prosecutors across jurisdictions on a daily basis, thereby remaining current on the latest practices and procedures employed by the justice system.
Defending your rights is not just about knowing the law. We believe that understanding your story is of utmost importance as well. Every case is different, and every client has individualized needs. We will always take the time to meet with you to learn about your personal circumstances and priorities, so that we can represent you better.
Our lawyers are passionate about criminal law and are fully invested in those we represent. No matter the situation, we never lose sight of our clients’ interests. Furthermore, with open lines of communication, you can count on us to keep you informed every step of the way.
Flexible Fee Structures
Given the current economic climate, we understand that times are tough for Canadians. As such, the first consultation is free of charge. Beyond that, we offer flexible fee structures and aim to accommodate every budget.
Having a diverse legal team also allows us to offer a broad range of fees without compromising your defence. We always have the ability to pair the right lawyer to every client, and every budget. The best part is that no matter who you hire, you will receive the full benefit of our collective wisdom and experience.

If you’re not quite ready to hire a lawyer, that’s ok. Take the time you need and do your research. To that end, we encourage you to explore this website to gain a better understanding of:
- The charges you are facing,
- The consequences that can follow, and
- The ways you can defend the charges.
However, if your research stops here, our parting advice is this: Don’t deal with your charges alone. Obtaining at least minimal legal advice is crucial to help you avoid the worst consequences of a conviction.
