Homicide

Homicide is the most serious criminal offence in Canada.  Charges can range from 1st degree murder to 2nd degree murder and manslaughter.  These cases are typically lengthy, costly and hard fought.  Individuals will usually only be charged with homicide after significant investigative effort by police and Crown.  The result of such an investigation will inevitably include thousands of pages of disclosure requiring careful review as well as many hours of video, audio and other evidence.  One of the first issues that will arise will be consideration to having a bail hearing to see if release can be secured pending trial.  This is the first step in preparing for an investigation that can involve the use of most every tool in the police arsenal.  This includes the use of undercover officers, surveillance evidence, search warrants, production orders, wiretap evidence, interrogations and the use of “Mr. Big” techniques.  Needless to say, these cases require enormous energy, experience and resources.  We have a team of lawyers, paralegals and legal assistants that will ensure no stone is left unturned in your defence as we seek dismissal of your charges or, as is often the case, a reduced charge resulting in far lesser penalty.
