People charged with criminal offences are sometimes not guilty or, in my view, never as guilty as a prosecutor would make them out to be. That's why people need lawyers to defend them. Having an effective advocate may mean the difference between going to jail and staying out of jail, or ending up with a serious criminal record or avoiding one. As your lawyer, I will promise to protect your legal rights, endeavour to ensure you are dealt with fairly and in a timely manner and give you sound and honest advice.
With more than 30 years’ experience in criminal law, both as a defence counsel and as a prosecutor, it is my goal in every case to provide effective and innovative representation to persons charged with criminal offences.
I will handle criminal related matters, including serious matters such as federal criminal code offences, less serious criminal code charges, narcotics, and matters related to provincial law such as charges under the Highway Traffic Act.
