I believe everyone has a right to good legal counsel and a strong defence. I deliver both.
Since entering the legal profession my focus has been entirely on defending people’s rights through the practice of criminal law. I believe very strongly in the work I do, and I work very hard for all my clients, whether they are charged with a theft or a homicide. I know that facing a criminal charge, with all its technicalities and procedures, is often intimidating. I make it a staple of my practice to take the time with clients so that they are comfortable with all that follows a charge.
I have been involved with the ‘Association in defence of the wrongly convicted’ and completed my articles with Greenspan Partners in Toronto. Since that time I have had a great deal of success in Durham working for a criminal defence firm. I have represented people charged with everything from firearm offences to frauds, drug offences to domestic violence, sexual assault to impaired driving, attempt murder to theft under. My work experience is varied and I have consistently achieved great results for my clients, no matter the charge.
