What We Do.
Criminal Law and Litigation
We have done hundreds of trials. This is what we do, and we do it with great success. We have over 40 years of combined legal experience as both defence and prosecution, so we are able to see your case from all angles. We are uniquely positioned to provide a vigorous and experienced defence to get the best possible outcome.
Criminal charges can affect all areas of life including work and personal relationships. In some cases, it can involve being forced to move from one’s home. At Paradigm Law Group, LLP our lawyers are very much aware of the myriad ways in which being charged with a criminal offence feels crushing. Let us help you.
We also represent survivors, particularly in sexual assault cases, witnesses, and those under investigation for criminal offences. We can be your voice.
Youth Justice and Rights
Did you know that a youth court record can become part of a permanent adult criminal record? That a youth court record can affect employment, travel and volunteer opportunities for your entire life? If you, or your child, is under the age of 18, and charged with a criminal offence or subject to a child protection proceeding, it is imperative to hire a lawyer who knows youth law.
Law Society Discipline
Your license to practice law is your most valuable asset, so protect it. It is important to get legal advice at the earliest possible opportunity when a Law Society investigator comes calling. We have helped many of our colleagues close the chapter on their discipline history at the investigation stage. Where cases do proceed to a full hearing, we have an excellent track record of success and reputation protection. Disciplinary proceedings before the Law Society will be the most stressful times in your career. Let our legal team lighten the burden.
Extradition & International Criminal Law
Our lawyers have worked on countless extradition and mutual legal assistance matters, including some of Canada’s highest profile cases. Having worked as both Crown and defence counsel, we understand this process inside and out. Lawyers who do not regularly practice under the Extradition Act may not. We win great results for our clients through our knowledge and experience.
