Over 35 Years of Experience.
I have been a criminal defence lawyer in the Hamilton area for over 35 years.
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 defend all adult and youth criminal charges, including:
I have very strong legal advocacy and trial skills and a reputation for relentless advocacy and problem solving and 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, tireless, rigorous 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.
