    The Justice System and Our Approach

    In our Justice System a person can be charged pursuant to any offence in the Criminal Code of Canada. The Criminal Code provides definitions of the types of conduct that constitutes a criminal offence. It also sets out the range of punishment that may be imposed for an offence if found guilty. In addition, the Criminal Code sets out the specific procedures to be followed by the prosecution and the permissible Orders that can be made by a Judge.

    The Canadian Justice system is based around British “common law” traditions. However, it is a combination of both common law and civil law. The common law portion means that the laws are not written down in statute, but rather exist through legal precedents – referred to as case law.

    Call us 24/7. Let’s start fighting together.

    Edward is an excellent lawyer. He is very professional and hard working criminal lawyer. I hired him for my sons criminal matter as he was looking at numerous charges and some serious jail time. He worked very hard on my sons case and dropped all charges. My son was able to get away with no jail time, thanks to Edwards hard work.. Edward was a godsend to me and my family in the hardest time of my life, and I will never forget. Every thing he told me during the court sessions happened exactly as he had planned them. I would very highly recommend Edward, his work speaks for itself. If you want positive results this is the guy to hire. Thank you Edward for what you have done for me and my family. All the best, Dod

    Sonya is very professional, knowledgable and pleasant lawyer. She was always there when we needed her. She was patient, explained every step of the very unpleasant process and prepared us for every day of the trial. I have been recommending Sonya and her law firm ever since. Thank you, Sonya! Keep up Great Work!
