Legal Defences For Charges Involving Death

Murder and manslaughter and all other cases involving a death are usually more complex and emotional than any other matter. Anything you say or do can potentially hurt your case. Contacting a lawyer immediately will help protect your rights and ensure that proper procedures are followed.

More importantly, consulting our firm will help you understand the specifics of the criminal charges against you, and how to best defend your case. At Leo Adler Law, we helped individuals in Toronto, in Ontario and elsewhere in Canada with legal defences for:

  • First and second degree murder
  • Attempted murder
  • Manslaughter
  • Negligence causing death

Client-Focused Approach

The outcomes for each person’s case vary depending on the details. This is why the lawyers of Leo Adler Law base our defence strategies on the individual as well as the facts.

We take a very client-centred approach to cases involving a death. We ask comprehensive questions and offer straightforward advice and legal opinions without making any judgments. Our goal is to make sure you are protected while we present the strongest points of your case.

Even if some of the facts aren’t ideal, our firm will continue to develop strategies that aim to help you. We make sure you are always up-to-date on your file, and we are always available to take your call and answer any questions and concerns you have.

Forensic Evidence

Our senior lawyer, Leo Adler, has extensive experience regarding forensic science in death cases. He was involved in one of the earliest Canadian cases using DNA evidence. His over-all knowledge of forensic issues can be crucial to your case.
