BOYNECLARKE LLP has acted for both individuals and companies in Nova Scotia and many jurisdictions in Canada.
Whereas mid-sized to large law firms don’t typically practice criminal law, BOYNECLARKE LLP stands out from the crowd. This translates into a significant advantage for our clients who have access to other practice areas within the firm, while enjoying a one-on-one relationship with one of our criminal defence lawyers.
Facing a criminal charge can be difficult and frightening. At BOYNECLARKE LLP in Halifax – Dartmouth, we have the relevant knowledge and experience to support your case. Tax lawyers in our Business Law Team advise on white-collar crime cases involving theft or fraud. If your case involves matrimonial issues, we simply walk down the hall and talk to one of our full-time Family Law practitioners.
Cases range from summary convictions such as drinking and driving, to indictable matters such as sexual assault and murder. We have defended prosecutions at all levels of courts, including the Appellate courts in Atlantic Canada, the Federal Court of Canada, and the Supreme Court of Canada.
If you’ve been charged with a crime, seeking out early representation of a criminal defence lawyer is important so you know all your options before you decide to plead guilty or not guilty. Criminal charges can result in serious consequences that significantly affect a person’s future.
