We Take Charge of Your Situation

You may view a legal defence as a shield against the charges brought against you. Our approach is a little different. We know that the legal system doesn’t always get it right. So, we prefer to be the sword rather than the shield.


We obtain and analyze all the evidence from the police investigation. We don’t assume anything is accurate. We carefully look for any mistake, omission or error that could support a defence to your charge(s).

We Don’t Judge —
We Defend. We Protect. We Fight.

We understand that you are going through a difficult time. You probably have been handcuffed and fingerprinted. You likely have been left feeling embarrassed, scared and ashamed. We aren’t here to judge. We are here to protect your freedom, your reputation, and everything that is important to you.


We do this by listening to you. We’ll analyze the details of your story, tell you what your rights are and how the law applies, and how we will build your case.
