Private Practice

Associate, Criminal Defence

October 1, 2021

My firm is seeking an associate with 0-3 years of experience to assist with a busy criminal defence practice, which involves defending individuals charged with a range of offences in the Criminal Code and Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.

The successful candidate will be a talented advocate who wants to be busy with engaging files – I am frequently in bail hearings, preliminary inquiries and trials at the Ontario Court of Justice and Superior Court of Justice. The intention is to have the associate assist with larger, more complex files, and separately to run a series of files on their own.

My firm can provide a platform for an associate to build their own practice and become involved in the business of the firm. The successful candidate should expect to be working to build both their own profile and the profile of the firm.

If you have a demonstrated interest in criminal law and have dreamed of passionately and creatively advocating for the accused, and are also interested in the business of law and want to contribute to a criminal defence practice with your new and entrepreneurial ideas, please send your cover e-mail, resume, transcripts and references to
