Committed to Fight for Your Rights
Daley, Byers Barristers & Solicitors are experienced and well respected criminal lawyers with decades of experience in the Ontario Courts fighting to preserve and enforce the rights of their clients.
The two founding partners, Bruce Daley and Kenneth R. Byers were both called to the bar in April of 1981. The Daley, Byers firm also includes an extensive team of experienced criminal lawyers, research assistants, law clerks, resource staff and technical consultants. The firm has offices in Toronto, Brampton, Mississauga, Oakville, Burlington, Hamilton and Niagara Region. It is anticipated that new offices will open soon in Markham and Aurora/ Newmarket.
Although Daley, Byers specializes in all areas of Criminal Law it has developed a reputation for being one of the preeminent firms in defending impaired driving and related drinking and driving offences. We have been counsel on numerous precedent setting cases in this area. In addition the same skill and dedication is devoted to all types of charges. For example, in drug cases tenacious attacks on the legality of the search are the norm. It is our commitment to provide you with the best defence available regardless of the charge.
One of the most significant issues in criminal law defence work is the communication between counsel and client. It is our policy to keep our clients fully informed at all times and to encourage their input regarding the case. The more information that we receive the better equipped we are to fight for your cause.
It is very important to remember 2 fundamental principles in criminal law:
- You are innocent until proven guilty; Innocence and guilt are legal terms; they have nothing to do with whether you have actually committed a crime. The Crown must prove that you are guilty within the rules of evidence and the law.
- The crown must prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt. This is a very difficult hurdle for the crown to overcome. Proof on a balance of probabilities is not enough. That is why one may be found innocent on criminal charges and yet lose in a civil law suit.
If you are facing criminal charges, the most intelligent course of action is to hire a competent criminal defense lawyer with experience, knowledge of the law and the Ontario Court System. At Daley, Byers, from the earliest stages of preparation to the actual trial itself, we make it our commitment to fight for your rights. Call us now for professional and confidential counsel on your case.
