Criminal and Penal Defense
Every individual has the right to be presumed innocent until the Crown proves beyond a reasonable doubt his guilt.
Me Anthony El-Haddad will defend your presumption of innocence vigorously to avoid the unfortunate consequences of a criminal conviction.
A statement offense under the Highway Safety Code can have disastrous consequences (accumulation of demerit points, increase in insurances, loss of driver's license, etc.).
Some statements of offences have serious consequences, both from a monetary and a personal point of view.
Fines in these areas are often extremely high and a conviction can often lead to fiscal consequences.
Our team therefore defends both companies and persons in order to minimize these impacts.
The rights of an incarcerated person shall not be extinguished after a criminal convictions.
Me Anthony El-Haddad represents these incarcerated persons in their hearings before provincial or federal commissioners for their release hearings or parole hearings.
