Jury trials are reserved for the most serious criminal charges and require a very different type of advocacy than judge-alone trials. Hicks Adams has an impressive record of success with both judge-alone and jury trials. Our lawyers’ in-depth knowledge of the law, the rules of evidence and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms coupled with extensive trial and advocacy experience is an immense benefit to our clients facing serious charges.
Depending on the specifics of the case, a trial may not be required. However, we prepare every case as though it is going to trial, knowing the importance of preparing for every opportunity to zealously defend the rights of our clients.
Hicks Adams has a thriving appeal practice. Our lawyers regularly appear at the Ontario Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada, and we are proud of our record of success at both of these levels. It is a significant accomplishment for a law firm to bring an appeal to the highest court in Canada, the Supreme Court of Canada, let alone succeed at that level. Our lawyers have done it.
