What My Experience Says
About Me

A few years ago, a police officer phoned me to defend him on a DUI charge. I asked him how he found me and he said that after asking his police friends who they lose to in court, it was my name that popped up again and again.

I have represented an NHL player, a Canadian Olympic athlete, police officers, lawyers, doctors, prominent senior executives, pilots and flight attendants, limousine drivers, factory workers and many other hardworking Canadians. If nothing else, this tells you that I’ve built a track record others take notice of and there’s a reason why even the highest profile individuals entrust me with their cases.

Why You Need To Hire
Best DUI Lawyer Mississauga

Depending on the specifics of your DUI charge, a conviction might mean the loss of your driver’s licence, devastating spikes in your insurance rates, a lifetime criminal record and even jail time.

If there is even the slightest glimmer of hope that you can be proven innocent (and there usually is!), then you can’t afford to plead guilty. You can’t afford to sit back and hope that everything will work itself out. You can’t afford to hire just anyone to defend you. You owe it to yourself to fight the best DUI case you can fight.

Your lifestyle, your reputation and your self-esteem depend on it!

Next Step

I’m a big believer that hiring an experienced DUI lawyer is similar to hiring a doctor or dentist in the sense that it is a very personal choice. You need to feel right about the person who will defend your case in court. For this reason, I offer a 100% confidential, FREE consultation so you can make an educated and informed decision.
