Everyone has a right to legal counsel, no matter the nature of the criminal accusations they are facing.

Some of our criminal defence lawyers are former prosecutors, which enables them to clearly understand how the “other side” thinks. We take on all kinds of criminal cases, from wrongful convictions to drug charges, assault, and homicide. No matter the severity of the criminal charges laid against you, you can count on us to provide a stellar defence on your behalf.

With deep knowledge of the criminal justice system, we can help you avoid being convicted or ensure you face minimum penalties.

I highly recommend Matthew Deshaye. I got charged with a DUI and Matt did an exceptional job he got it thrown out before trial. He kept me up to date as soon as he had any information. His assistant Dina Kruskic was amazing and very helpful with any questions I had. I can’t thank these two professionals enough for helping me get through this difficult situation in my life. 15/10
