Toronto Criminal Lawyer

With over 25 years of experience as a successful Criminal Lawyer in Toronto, Steven Tress can assist you with whatever criminal charges you are facing. Navigating through the criminal process requires an experienced criminal defence lawyer who can put forth your best defence. Through my experience in defending those facing all types of criminal charges, I can effectively assist you at every stage of the criminal process.

Defending Your Criminal Case

As a Toronto Criminal Lawyer, I can help you successfully resolve your case with four key factors:

  1. Legal knowledge and training;
  2. Thorough case preparation;
  3. Putting it all together in argument;
  4. Perseverance (not aggressiveness) in attaining a successful result.

Legal Knowledge and Experience

Every case where a person is criminally charged has its own various issues and facts. It is necessary for a criminal defence lawyer to be knowledgeable and have the experience to identify the legal issues in each particular case to be able to devise a strategic plan, in order to effectively defend an accused person.

Thorough Case Preparation

Because of the diversity of legal issues and facts with each criminal charge against a person, it is very important for a criminal lawyer to properly understand the details of a case. As a Criminal Lawyer in Toronto, I will take the necessary time to prepare through all of the facts and legal issues, to ensure that the presentation of the defence to the court is smooth and effectively delivered. Thorough preparation allows a criminal defence lawyer to better cross-examine witnesses and submit pertinent case theories to the court, resulting in a successful defence of those charged with a criminal offence.

Putting It All Together in Argument

Tying together the legal issues and facts of a particular case is an important step in preparation for arguing in court. A criminal lawyer requires the necessary legal knowledge and experience to properly prepare a good legal and factual argument in order to persuade a judge or a jury that the position of the defence is stronger than that of the prosecution.

Perseverance (Not Aggressiveness) in Achieving a Successful Result

A criminal defence lawyer will have very minimal success in using aggressive tactics, as they only serve to alienate the prosecutor, witnesses, judge and jury. With perseverance, in combination with other factors listed above, an experienced criminal lawyer can succeed in effectively defending a person charged with a criminal offence. As a Toronto Criminal Lawyer, I strategically and persistently present to the court the position of the defence in order to achieve successful results.

Serving Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area

In Toronto, there are five courthouses where criminal cases are heard in the Ontario Court of Justice: Old City Hall, College Park, Scarborough Court and two in North York. The Superior Court of Justice is located Downtown on University Avenue. As an experienced criminal defence lawyer, I can take advantage of a number of opportunities to successfully represent you throughout all phases of your case. I can also represent you if you have been charged in one of the following courts:

  • Mississauga and Brampton
  • Newmarket
  • Hamilton
