A top-quality defence

Mistakes in your defence can lead to lifelong consequences. We’ll make sure you get a top-quality defence that gives you the best chance of clearing your name.

How we will defend you

Our lawyers have successfully defended many people charged with a variety of criminal offences in Ottawa, even when their case looked hopeless.

We can provide experienced legal counsel in cases of all types, even the most serious ones.

The legal processes that law enforcement officers must follow are key. 

You have constitutional rights and are innocent until the evidence against you proves that you are guilty.

Because of the many “gray” areas in criminal cases, our skilled lawyers can often find weaknesses in the prosecution case and get charges dismissed, downgraded, or earn an acquittal at trial.

If you go to trial, we understand how to effectively cross-examine witnesses, including police officers.

We will have previously examined all the evidence against you and how it was obtained. 

If your rights have been violated or police officers did not follow due process in your case, you may have a good chance of escaping at least some of the most serious consequences of a conviction.

Amazing advice.

Excellent service

Excellent and precise communications skills. Very clear on what my position was, what the legal actions available were, and what his strategy would be to address the situation. And precise execution. He assured me of my rights and position every step of the way. Made me feel totally comfortable with my rights, and let me continue with my life. Highly recommended.
