About My Practice
Experienced, respected, and committed defence of persons and corporations charged with criminal offences, driving offences, extradition matters, professional discipline complaints, income tax and securities investigations, Occupational Health and Safety Act charges.
A reputation for success, discretion, and exceptional service providing strategic, practical and focused representation.
Committed to the protection of the client’s constitutional rights and freedoms, respect for their individual circumstances and dedicated to the guidance of each individual through the complicated and sometimes frightening justice system.
I have both my J.D. and a Masters degree in Criminal Law and have practised for over 33 years throughout Ontario as well as in British Columbia, Alberta, Quebec, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland in a number of high profile cases but always recognizing that every case I represent is important.
In addition, I have earned the certification of Specialist in Criminal Law by the Law Society of Upper Canada, granted to fewer than fifty Toronto criminal counsel.
Consistent with my dedication to the professional legal community, I have held various positions at legal organizations and associations including director, Criminal Lawyers’ Association (Ontario), instructor, Criminal Procedure, Law Society (Ontario) Bar Admission, Canada Bar Association (Ontario), Advocates’ Society, Federation of Law Societies.
Part of my defence practise is based on referrals from large law firms and associations such as the Ontario Principals’ Council who represent the interests of principals and vice-principals in Ontario’s publicly funded school system.
Finally, in important and appropriate cases, I will represent individuals and corporations on a pro bono basis for worthy causes requiring professional legal representation.
