criminal lawyer in Toronto

Being charged with a criminal offence should be considered serious no matter the actual crime. All criminal offences have one thing in common: They go on your permanent criminal record. Your criminal record could deter you from getting that job you have dreamed about for years or experiencing an extended holiday vacation exploring the European countryside or taking the family to Walt Disney World in Florida.

At trial, I brought a Charter motion arguing that the Peel officers arrested my client without first doing a proper investigation into who sold the drugs to the other individual. The trial judge found my client’s rights were...
  • In R. v. J.S-D, my client was charged with possession of a loaded firearm that was found in the trunk of a car he was driving. 2 police officers testified, under oath, that they observed my client walk to the car and place the firearm in the trunk right in front of them.
