Criminal Defence Services 

Becoming involved in the criminal justice system doesn’t need to define the rest of your life. At Edelson Law, we’ll do everything we can to ensure that it won’t. We offer a wide range of criminal defence services and will help you navigate the challenges of criminal charges.


Our energetic and skilled trial lawyers will vigorously fight to defend your rights should your case go to court. With Edelson Law, you’ll be in good hands. Let us help today.


In situations where you or the opposing counsel disagree with the judge’s decision, we’ll take your case to appeal. There, we’ll fight in your favour to reverse unfavourable decisions for you, or to maintain those decisions that the prosecutor is appealing that were favourable for you.  We’re here to defend you even after trial and on appeal.


We know that stakes are high in bail hearings, and there’s exceptional pressure to plead guilty when you are in jail awaiting trial. Don’t — at least not without speaking to us first.  Our criminal defence attorneys will work tirelessly to defend your freedoms at this incredibly crucial time. We have a proven track record of success at the bail and bail review stage.  Let us fight for you.

Constitutional Challenges

If we believe the charges against you are unconstitutional, or that you have been deprived of a valid defence due to an unconstitutional law, we will challenge that law, and we will fight for you to ensure your constitutional rights are protected.  We will challenge any unconstitutional law, whether it is provincial or federal. Let the experienced lawyers at Edelson Law help you today.


Not every case needs to proceed to trial. Sometimes, we can get your charges withdrawn or stayed without the need for a trial, or alternatively, at least pled down to a less serious offence.  We’ll fight for a favourable and timely resolution for you at every turn. Indeed, we pride ourselves on our ability to often get charges dealt with in a favourable way early in proceedings, and soon after you’ve been charged.  If you’ve been charged, speak to one of our experienced lawyers today so that we can start helping you put your life back on track immediately.

Pre-Charge Investigations

If you’re alleged to have been involved in illegal activity or you’re worried you may be a suspect in a criminal investigation, don’t wait. Contact Edelson Law today and speak with an experienced criminal defence attorney to stay ahead of potentially incriminating evidence during the pre-charge phase, and oftentimes, to avoid criminal charges being laid entirely.


If you're unsure about what your next steps should be, our skilled legal professionals also offer sound advice and counsel to ensure that you're on the right path.
