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.

Recent Success

R. V. C.W | 2021 | Toronto


Attempted Murder, robbery with firearm, discharge firearm, aggravated assault, careless use, and weapons dangerous.


The client brought his legally registered handgun to a drug deal and, after a dispute, left the dealer with three gunshot wounds to the abdomen. The client was released on bail within days and has spent the last three years turning his life around (rehab, university, employment, counseling).  As a result, he will never see the inside of a cell. His legal battle ended with a plea to aggravated assault and careless use for a two-year sentence to be served in the community.
