Our law firm is focused on providing expert representation to persons charged with criminal offences and in connection with their immigration law matters. We possess a wealth of experience in the criminal justice system as well as the immigration law system.
Our practice includes adults and youths in connection with their criminal and immigration matters. We also represent clients at sentencing hearings and criminal appeals as well as refugee hearings, family sponsorship and other immigration hearings and appeals. We provide expert support and assistance to lawyers in other fields (such as commercial law) when their matters cross over into the criminal or immigration law realms.
We personally appear on behalf of our clients at each and every court or tribunal appearance, allowing you to focus on your work and family, and not on your pending 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.
If you or someone you know has a criminal or immigration matter, you are invited to contact us to arrange for an initial client interview. We will sit down with you to discuss your case and give you a preliminary assessment of its strengths and weaknesses.
In addition to providing you with superior advocacy and a tenacious representation, we are fluent in six different languages.
Each case is different. We strongly believe in access to justice and will work with you to ensure you receive quality legal representation for a fee that is fair to you and allows us to perform the work competently.
We offer payment plans that fit your personal financial circumstances. Please feel free to discuss your situation and we will explain the available options to you.
