Areas of Practice
Our Team of Criminal Defence Lawyers have won thousand’s of cases. We cover all aspects of criminal defense law.
It is very important to remember two fundamental principles in criminal law:
1. You are innocent until proven guilty; Innocence and guilt are legal terms; they have nothing to do with whether you have actually committed a crime. The Crown must prove that you are guilty within the rules of evidence and the law.
2. The crown must prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt. This is a very difficult hurdle for the crown to overcome. Proof on a balance of probabilities is not enough. That is why one may be found innocent on criminal charges and yet lose in a civil lawsuit.
If you are facing criminal charges, the wise course of action is to hire a caring, competent experienced criminal lawyer with knowledge of the law and the Ontario Court System.
