Frequently Asked Questions in Criminal Law


What is their experience?

Experience is essential and relates not only the field of law but to the geographical area where the charge is being prosecuted. Knowledge of the Judges, the prosecutors and the operation of the judicial system in each area is valuable.

Both Founding partners, Bruce Daley and Ken Byers (Toronto Criminal Lawyers), were called to the Bar in 1981. They both have extensive experience in defending all criminal charges and they have appeared in almost every Ontario Court of Justice in the Province of Ontario. In addition to criminal defence work, the firm also defends Extradition matters, Occupational Health and Safety prosecutions, Environmental Protection act prosecutions and professional discipline complaints proceedings. The team at Daley, Byers has the needed experience you are looking for.

Is their practice restricted to criminal law only?

Daley Byers is a defence practice only. We defend all criminal law charges. In addition to charges under the Criminal Code of Canada, we defend charges under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, Extradition matters, Occupational Health and Safety prosecutions, Environmental Protection Act prosecutions and professional discipline complaint proceedings. We are total defence only.

Are they familiar with the Court where you are facing charges and is that important in your particular case?

Daley, Byers have defended cases in almost every court in Ontario.

Will they give you the attention you need?

Your case and you will receive the attention that is required to guarantee the best defense. We take pride in our work and care about our clients.

Will they communicate with you in a timely matter?

Communication: We are available 24/7. All of our clients are provided our personal cellular numbers. We also report to clients on a regular basis to keep them apprised of the progress on their case. We understand that you are extremely concerned and a simple phone call can often alleviate your worries.

Will they accommodate your financial situation – payment plan?

We do offer payment plans. We get it. No-one anticipates facing a criminal charge and having to hire a lawyer. We do our best to spread out the payment of fees to accommodate your financial needs.

Are you going to receive top value for the money you spend?

Value: We are first to acknowledge that we are not the cheapest criminal lawyers. We do not want to be the “dollar store” of criminal lawyers. However, we will provide top quality criminal defence for a fair price. That is our reputation and we stand behind it.

In my opinion, one of the best lawyers money can buy. I had the pleasure of having Mark byers and Ken byers on my side when nobody else was. Their legal services were top tier by every means. His dedication to my cases proved effective and proved my innocence without any doubt. Would recommend their service to anyone who needs proper representation.

Bruce has shown me a tremendous amount of time and effort through his knowledge & experience as a lawyer. I would recommend him to anyone who is in need of a lawyer who will not just work for you, but allow you to understand your rights. I learned a lot from Bruce and his conduct speaks for itself. Not only did he fight hard, but got me off on all charges! He used his own cases to defend me which shows how good he really is, I will forever be grateful for his hard work and effort!

Mr. Ken Byers and his team were amazing in handling my family's legal matter. We received an incredible outcome considering mental health issues were involved and we could not be happier. He is brilliant in his expertise, kind, compassionate,  understanding and professional. We would highly recommend him as the best criminal defence lawyer. We thank everyone involved for your dedication and professionalism.
