Funt & Company
The criminal law treats crimes of violence with great seriousness. If a police complaint is made about an
altercation, the police and the Crown counsel are not going to say “boys-will-be-boys”. If you have been charged, we will bring our
full suite of skills to bear to have the charges withdrawn, your matter dealt
with by an alternative resolution, or, if need be, your charge defended at
trial. Do not let a misunderstanding
result in your bearing a criminal record for decades to come. Please call us and we will let you know how
we can help.
Crimes alleging sexual misconduct bear incredible stigma. As the sexual mores of our society have
loosened in most respects, there has never been a greater social taboo
associated with violations of another`s sexual integrity. The scarlet letter has been replaced with the
sex offender registry.
The nature of sexual allegations is that they are frequently
alleged to have occurred in private, where corroborating evidence will not be
expected owing to its lack of availability.
Unlike other offences, alleged incidents years or even decades old are
routinely brought before the courts.
In order to meet a sex crime charge, you need counsel who
will do more than simply call the complainant a liar, or the Crown`s
investigation incomplete. You need
counsel who will drag the facts into court, and who will establish a foundation
in evidence that this particular allegation is false.
In contemporary criminal law practice, there is murder and
there is everything else. Murder carries
a mandatory sentence of imprisonment for life – whether a convicted murderer
ever walks the streets again is thereafter the discretionary determination of
the National Parole Board. Murder
charges are by default tried before a jury, except with the consent of the
Crown, which consent is not always forthcoming.
In order to fight a homicide charge, you need counsel who
can grapple with an expansive police investigation, using it against the
Crown. You need counsel who can go the
distance. Our approach emphasizes
advance preparation, defence in depth, and energetic advocacy. We refuse to be overwhelmed by the resources
of the state.
Fraud and Tax Evasion
Many smart people are used to thinking of numbers as
constituting facts, rather than mere argument.
At Funt & Company, we have seen enough RCMP and CRA fraud
investigations to know better. We are
fully equipped to parry opponents who use numbers as their weapons. We have studied the inner workings of these
investigations, and are adept at marshalling defences on the merits as well as identifying
violations of an accused person`s rights.
Please contact us and we will explain how we can help.
It is illegal to deal drugs in Canada, and it is illegal for
a reason. The Court takes allegations of
drug dealing very seriously. There is no
such thing as a sweet deal on a cocaine charge.
Drug cases involve difficult issues of search and seizure
law, civil liberties, criminal procedure, cutting edge communications
technology, and even accounting. We have the legal and tactical savvy to defend
drug charges. Let us tell you how we can
