Putting our clients at ease during times of uncertainty.

We are a boutique law firm specializing in criminal and regulatory defence. We understand that no one wants to have to contact a criminal defence lawyer. We are committed to minimizing the stress and uncertainty of criminal or regulatory allegations by helping our clients through the legal system.

We have built our practice defending the underdog and pride ourselves in achieving successful and cost-effective results as quickly as possible for our clients. We assist with all criminal matters, including high-stakes criminal litigation, high-profile murder and white-collar trials. We also have extensive experience defending individuals and corporations facing regulatory charges or professional discipline proceedings.

We have built our practice defending the underdog.

We service clients throughout southern Ontario and are available to meet at either of our office locations in downtown Toronto or central Vaughan. We accept Legal Aid Ontario certificates and are committed to providing transparent legal fees upfront.
