I am a criminal defence lawyer at Aitken Robertson, Criminal Lawyers.
In 2018, I began working exclusively in the realm of criminal law, during summer break from law school. After graduating from law school, I worked full-time at a well-known criminal law firm in downtown Toronto where I gained a significant amount of experience in criminal law and trial litigation.
In 2021, I accepted an employment contract with Aitken Robertson. Upon completing my articles of clerkship with Richard Aitken and Phil Stiles, I was hired full-time and now lead the firm’s operations in Brampton and Newmarket.
My experience in criminal law includes working on files involving drug offences, assault, sexual assault, firearms, fraud, murder, and impaired driving. I have successfully obtained many favourable results for clients, including having criminal charges withdrawn, obtaining peace bonds, and discharges. Additionally, I have experience working on bail applications, bail reviews, Crown pre-trials, judicial pre-trials, Charter applications, and other complex legal applications. I have also attended and assisted senior criminal defence counsel with numerous trials and preliminary inquiries in the Ontario Court of Justice and the Superior Court of Justice. My court experience extends in Quebec, British Columbia, and through all of Ontario.
Furthermore, my experiences growing up in Peel Region have provided me with a unique upbringing and the ability to deal with individuals from diverse ethnic backgrounds. My personal and professional experiences in combination with my legal education, allow me to advocate on behalf of my clients with confidence and without fear.
After I graduated from the University of Waterloo with an Honours degree in Legal Studies, I later obtained my law degree from the University of Birmingham (UK), Faculty of Law. During law school, I competed and won a negotiation skills competition and also gained membership into the prestigious Holdsworth Student Law Society and the Pro Bono Group. I was also awarded the highest mark in Legal Skills and Methods.
I am a member of the Criminal Lawyers’ Association and the Canadian Criminal Justice Association. I actively participate in Continuing Professional Development courses and events, including seminars on various criminal offences, Charter litigation, expert evidence, racial profiling, and other contentious legal issues.
Aside from work, I enjoy reading, playing chess, and staying active by working out and competing in sports such as hockey, boxing, and Brazilian jiu-jitsu.
