We have strong connections to lawyers and experts in Vancouver, across Canada, and in the United States. We are often referred cases by other lawyers, for clients whose situation calls for criminal defence counsel. We are pleased to accept referrals and to field questions from both the client and the referring lawyer.
Some criminal cases have other components, such as a civil suit for damages, a professional disciplinary proceeding, or an immigration proceeding. We generally restrict our practice to the criminal and disciplinary processes, but are well placed to suggest counsel to address any other issues. Similarly, in cases that have cross-jurisdictional dimensions, we often liaise with lawyers in the other country or province to ensure the client’s position is addressed in a comprehensive way. When we work with other lawyers, we develop an overall strategy to address every aspect of the case.
