JHG criminal law

I have spent the last decade defending people charged with a variety of criminal offences, from first degree murder to simple assault; from importing kilos of cocaine to possessing a small baggie for personal use. Every case gets the same level of attention and every client is treated with the respect they deserve.

Today, I focus on high risk criminal litigation: homicide offences, the commercial drug trade, illegal firearm use and possession, and serious acts of violence. From Bail Hearing to Charter Application to Jury Trial, the goal is to ensure that you don’t get stuck in the trap of the Criminal Justice System.

It is a trap, designed to keep people stuck in place by detention orders and plea deals that guarantee a criminal record. I pride myself on never taking the easy way out. If there is a defence to advance, then it is pursued. And while it is impossible to predict a result, I always promise a fight.

R. v. S.L | 2022 | HAMILTON

Charge:

Possession for the purpose of trafficking cocaine and MDMA and proceeds of crime 

Result:

Client was charged following a “routine traffic stop” in which 16 ounces of cocaine, an ounce of MDMA, and $20k in cash were located in the back seat of his car.  After arguing that the crown delay in proceeding violated his constitutional right to trial in a reasonable amount of time, all charges were stayed.
