Introduction

Michael’s laid-back charm disarms the toughest witnesses and has an irresistible effect on judges and juries alike. Michael has developed a broad-ranging criminal litigation practice, and has appeared before all levels of court. He has defended cases ranging from simple assaults to complex murders, and has had particular success before juries.

Michael frequently appears as an expert witness before the House of Commons and the Senate, providing expert evidence on criminal-law policy and legislation. Michael is an award winning blogger and is often sought out by the media for his insights on justice issues. He is a regular contributor to iPolitics.

Michael has served as a director of the Criminal Lawyers’ Association. He later served as a treasurer, and now vice-president, of the Defence Counsel Association of Ottawa. He has been a guest instructor at the University of Ottawa law school, Carleton University, and Algonquin College and has presented at numerous professional education conferences.

Michael was called to the Bar in 2005 after attending law school at Dalhousie University and articling in Toronto at the well-known criminal law firm Hicks Block Adams.
