Strong Defence Against All Degrees of Murder and Manslaughter in Ontario
Your best defence is my experience.
I also have a thorough understanding of the law surrounding confessions and identification.
Murder cases must be tried by a jury. I have the necessary experience, advocacy skills and confidence to convincingly argue your case to the jury.
My experience allows me to represent clients facing any type of homicide charge in or around Toronto, including:
- First degree murder: murder with planning and deliberation, murder for hire, murder of a police officer, murder committed during another offence, such as robbery
- Second degree murder
- Attempted murder
- Criminal negligence causing death
Possible Penalties for Conviction
First degree murder is punishable by life in prison with no eligibility for parole for 25 years. Second degree murder is punishable by life in prison without eligibility for parole for 10 to 25 years. Manslaughter and attempted murder are punishable by a maximum of life in prison.
You should know that if the sentence is life in prison, even if you are eventually granted parole, you will be on parole for the rest of your life. If you breach a condition of parole at any point during your life, your parole can be revoked and you will go back to prison.
I will do everything possible to help you avoid the most serious consequences of conviction. You can rely on me to passionately and skilfully defend your rights and freedom.

Representing Clients Through Legal Aid
The individuals charged with these types of offences often do not have the financial ability to secure the legal representation they need. Legal Aid Ontario maintains an Extremely Serious Criminal Matters (ESCM) panel to which I have been admitted. ESCM lawyers must meet strict and demanding experience requirements before they are admitted to the panel. If you or a friend or family member is charged with murder, manslaughter or attempted murder, the case will most likely qualify for Big Case Management, which means that I can negotiate with Legal Aid for a budget that will ensure an effective defence. More information on representing clients through Legal Aid is available here.
