I have been a criminal defence lawyer in the Hamilton area since 1988. During this time I have been responsible for all aspects of the defence of adults and youth, including all types of charges from provincial offences to murder, including controlled drugs and substances. I have extensive experience defending all changes from shoplifting to murder.
I have developed strong legal advocacy and trial skills and a reputation for thorough and knowledgeable research and preparations, as well as for getting to know my clients and assisting them in a compassionate, understanding, supportive and informed manner. I am approachable but I am also an assertive and effective advocate.
I have a thorough knowledge of the courts, the Crown Attorneys and the Judges in the city and the region. This enables me to most effectively advocate for my clients.
I have been President of the Hamilton Criminal Lawyers Association. I have also been on numerous boards of directors in a variety of social, community, and legal agencies. I have also spoken both provincially and internationally on the subject of Criminal Law.
No matter what charge a client is facing, every client receives the same personalized attention, expertise, and strong advocacy.
Please feel free to explore this website and view some of the articles written about court cases that I have defended as well as some other legal and community projects that I am involved in.

Kristian Ferreira was called to the bar in 2022, and has continued to work closely with Beth Bromberg following his articling experience in her office.
Kristian and Beth work collaboratively to provide the best possible defence and service for each client. Kristian shares Beth’s values and works relentlessly in pursuit of justice and fairness for every client.
Since 2012, Kristian has received awards for his community involvement as he has amassed over five thousand hours of recorded volunteerism. The majority of those hours were spent assisting marginalized communities, notably low income and at-risk youth who have witnessed different forms of abuse.Kristian was a leader on both the McMaster University Varsity Soccer and Track teams; and was a part of the Trinidad and Tobago – Under 23 Football Roster in 2015. His high level of achievement in competitive sports has given Kristian an edge as a lawyer, especially in the courtroom. In 2017, Kristian made the conscious decision to study law at the University of Leeds in the hope of gaining experiences in life and academia, from one of Britain’s Ivy-League equivalents, in the birthplace of common law. During law school he participated in debating and mooting competitions, became involved with pro-bono groups and represented the school in a national negotiation competition. In 2019, the Canadian Association of Black Lawyers elected Kristian to their Board of Directors as Community Liaison and Director of Partnerships. In this position, Kristian is the association representative at the Roundtable of Diversity Association meetings, and the Law Society of Ontario Equity Advisory Group. In his spare time, he still enjoys sports, the outdoors and seeing friends.
