Let’s face it: nobody chooses to become involved in a criminal or quasi-criminal scenario. When you find yourself in that position, however, you need the best tools at your disposal to find an efficient and realistic resolution.
Sometimes it can be solved with a telephone call to clear up an obvious misunderstanding. Other times the solution needs a vigorous defence and trial of your matter. WMCZ’s experienced counsel can walk you through your situation from beginning to end. You can rely on our extensive experience in Provincial, Queen’s Bench and Appeals courts to negotiate and forcefully pursue the best possible outcome for you.
We have defended people of all ages in offences ranging from simple Traffic Safety Act speeding tickets to the most serious offences such as aggravated sexual assault and manslaughter. Our team approach lets you access the cumulative knowledge of all our criminal defence lawyers while still being respected on a personal level through face-to-face updates and strategic discussions on your file.
