About Leo Adler Law: A New Focus
The lawyers at Leo Adler Law generate effective criminal defence strategies by focusing on protecting you. While the circumstances, context and outcomes of every offence, accusation, charge, or trial may vary – and they always do, because no cases are ever identical – the effort we put into defending you never changes: it is always 100%.
My name is Leo Adler, and I have over 40 years of experience as a criminal defence lawyer. I opened my first law office in 1975, and it has evolved into Leo Adler Law. As the senior lawyer, I make certain that my firm treats you as a valued person, while simultaneously defending you against the accusations that you face.
Your Participation Is Essential To An Effective Defence
One of the key lessons I have learned is that a great defence is dependant on the active participation of the client.
We want you to know as much about your case as we do, so that you can understand your options and make an informed decision on how to proceed. We involve you in your defence by discussing the applicable laws and precedents that relate to your situation. Your ultimate instructions to us, therefore, are an educated and knowledgeable decision.
Forensic Experience And International Legal Qualifications
Leo Adler Law also benefits from my in-depth experience and knowledge of forensic science and my being a member of the Canadian Society of Forensic Science. As one of the first lawyers to deal with DNA within the Canadian legal system, I have continued to use and study this and other forensic sciences as they relate to criminal defences.
Our clients are provided with effective support and legal resources for difficulties they may face outside Canada, or situations involving international law within Canada, due to my being an Adjunct Professor of International Criminal Law, a former member of the Cross-Cultural Roundtable on National Security and my participation in legal organizations, such as:
- Criminal Lawyers Association
- International Bar Association
- International Law Association
- American Society of International Law
- International Network of Boutique & Independent Law Firms
