From time to time new clients ask me "What's your track record fighting drinking and driving charges ?" or "What's your success rate as a lawyer ?". As a member of the Law Society of Upper Canada I am bound by the rule that any advertising should not compare services or charges with other lawyers or law firms. I can tell you that I have been a lawyer since 1979 working in Mississauga, Brampton, and the Greater Toronto Area. Much of that time I have spent doing criminal law, as defence counsel and Crown concurrently. In 1981 I was appointed by Order-in-Council as a part-time Assistant Crown Attorney for Peel. My criminal law practice has included many impaired/drunk driving, assault, theft, and Youth Court matters. I do the very best job I can for my clients. I am diligent in my attendances at Court and appointments with clients. I try to answer my own phone. I do a great deal of research on every case. I often use Charter of Rights arguments to challenge police methods of gathering evidence, Court delays, and Crown disclosure. Persons who are morally guilty of an offence often come to me with cases that seem to them to be impossible to defend. I do my best to force the Crown to prove every element of its case. What is most important to you is probably your driver's licence, your job, your family, your good reputation, your ability to travel, and your insurance rates. I will do my best to serve you. 

Every case is different. Some outcomes will be successful. Some outcomes will not be successful. If you read about a case or hear about an outcome, please don't assume that similar results will be achieved for you. You and I need to meet in person to discuss your unique situation and I'll do my best to tell you if you have a chance at a defence. I will not be able to guarantee that you will be acquitted but I will apply my knowledge of the law to what you tell me and what we learn in disclosure from the police.

Every client's case is unique. An initial $200 (for 1 hour) consultation is the best way to find out if I can help you. If you don't have a defence I will tell you so. If it is in your best interests to plead guilty I will tell you how we can get the best result. If you want to have a trial there are many avenues we can explore.

Warning: Please note that impaired driving is a very serious criminal offence that is treated very seriously by the Crown and by the Courts. For information as to just how seriously the Courts consider impaired driving  please see the comments and table of sentencing  cases at the conclusion of R. v. Goudreault in the Ontario Court of Appeal.
