Toronto Criminal Lawyers With
Over 50+ Years of Experience Between Our Partners

Bytensky Prutschi Shikhman Criminal Lawyers is a boutique law firm focusing on providing expert representation to individuals and corporations charged with criminal offences since 1975.

The criminal lawyers of BPS possess a wealth of experience in the criminal justice system conducting trials and appeals at every level of court in Ontario and at the Supreme Court of Canada. Our Toronto criminal lawyers have even been sought out by clients outside of Ontario to represent them on cases of particular complexity or importance in other Provinces.

Our criminal law firm includes adults, youths, corporations and victims caught up in the criminal justice system. We also represent clients at sentencing hearings and appeals, on regulatory and provincial offences, and at academic and occupational tribunals. We provide expert support and assistance to lawyers in other fields (such as commercial law, immigration law or family law) when their matters cross over into the criminal realm.

Our Toronto criminal lawyers share a passionate commitment to justice, unrivaled professionalism and an irrepressible desire to succeed on your behalf. We personally appear on behalf of our clients at each and every court appearance, allowing you to focus on your work and family, and not on your pending criminal case. We will provide you with regular and detailed updates on the status of your case and will always make ourselves available to answer your questions. The criminal lawyers of BPS maintain regular contact with our office throughout their busy court days and can often respond to your calls within hours. It is this unparalleled level of service coupled with our extensive legal experience that distinguishes Bytensky Prutschi Shikhman from other criminal law practices.
