Stephen R. Biss, Barrister & Solicitor

I answer my own phone and go to Court in-person.

Mississauga lawyer Stephen Biss has been in private practice as a Mississauga barrister, solicitor, and notary public with a law office in central Mississauga since 1979. As a Mississauga lawyer I frequently attend Brampton criminal Court and Brampton Youth Court. I attend personally without using agents, paralegals, or duty counsel, except in emergencies. Adults and young persons ("Young Offenders"), charged in Mississauga, require a lawyer's personal assistance for Court in Brampton. As a Mississauga lawyer I also personally appear as a lawyer in Toronto criminal law Courts, Milton criminal law Courts, Orangeville criminal law Courts, and other adult DUI, criminal, spousal assault, and Youth Courts. As a Mississauga lawyer I also conduct a Mississauga solicitor practice preparing wills and powers of attorney for Mississauga and other GTA clients who require a a Mississauga will lawyer or a power of attorney lawyer. My criminal law practice includes the provision of continuing education programmes for other Mississauga criminal law lawyers, Brampton lawyers, and members of the Ontario Criminal Lawyers Association.
