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. In addition to hampering your future employment and travel, criminal offences result in fines, fees, court costs, and jail time depending on your actual charges
If you have been charged with a criminal offence, you need to obtain professional legal representation from Toronto criminal lawyer, Jeff Hershberg. Mr. Hershberg’s sole focus is on criminal law and providing criminal defence for people charged with offences against the Crown. He has represented clients facing such charges, like sexual assault, robbery, shoplifting, weapons charges, drug offences, drinking and driving charges, and more, as well as bail hearings and appeals. Further, the law offices of Jeff Hershberg provide legal counsel and representation for minors (those under the age of 18) facing youth criminal offences.
It is never in your interests to attempt to represent yourself in any legal matter, especially criminal offences. Criminal laws are complex with specific sentencing guidelines. Nor do you want to take a plea arrangement or plead guilty to criminal charges just to get the matter quickly resolved. No matter what the Crown lawyers promise, they cannot predict what the judge is actually going to do. You would be surprised by how many people are quick to take a plea arrangement to resolve a case because the Crown’s lawyers say there will be no imprisonment with the deal, only to get to sentencing and have the judge impose jail time.
The best defence is to have experienced criminal lawyer, Jeff Hershberg, defending your rights. You never have to worry about Mr. Hershberg taking the easy way out by pleading out your case or having you plead guilty. Your criminal defence lawyer in Toronto works hard on your case to build a strong defence and help you achieve the best possible outcome while ensuring your rights were not violated at any point during the process or asking the hard questions.

At the preliminary hearing, we finally received the photo line-up and learned the officer had lied to us both. The Crown withdrew all charges against my client.
In R. v. K.C., my client was charged with trafficking cocaine and possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking. At the preliminary hearing my client was discharged of the trafficking cocaine case after the person he was alleged to have sold to testified the man looked very different than my client. 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.
