Criminal defence

The presumption of innocence lies at the very heart of the criminal law. It confirms our faith in humankind; it reflects our belief that individuals are decent and law-abiding members of the community until proven otherwise. – R v Oakes

The Supreme Court of Canada has affirmed the importance of this guiding principle. Most of our clients are people who find themselves thrown unexpectedly into the legal system.
