Edward H. Royle & Partners LLP is a full-service criminal defence firm covering trial and appeal matters in the Greater Toronto Area and beyond.

We handle a wide variety of criminal charges under the Criminal Code of Canada and the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, including theft, drug possession/trafficking, firearms offences, property offences, impaired driving/driving “over 80”, breaches of court orders, assault, sexual assault, and homicide.

As a full-service firm, we are able to manage your criminal case at every stage of proceedings: providing counsel upon arrest, bail hearings, bail variations, first and subsequent court appearances, judicial pre–trials, preliminary inquiries, trials in both the Ontario Court of Justice and Superior Court of Justice, and appeals from conviction and/or sentence to the Ontario Court of Justice, Superior Court of Justice, Ontario Court of Appeal, and Supreme Court of Canada.

Although we are primarily devoted to defending criminal matters, we are also experienced in defending matters of a quasi–criminal nature including traffic tickets, provincial offences and regulatory offences.

If you require any of these services, please contact us promptly to arrange a meeting. The first consultation is always free of charge and can be arranged to fit your schedule. Although our office is located in downtown Toronto, our criminal defence firm represents clients outside Toronto as well. We regularly attend court in cities such as Brampton, Oshawa, Newmarket, Milton, Hamilton, Brantford, Orangeville, Barrie, Orillia, Guelph, Kitchener, St. Catharines, and Welland. Our diverse team of criminal defence lawyers and articling students can communicate with you in Spanish, Cantonese, Urdu, Punjabi, Hindi, Tamil, Serbian, Croatian, Bosnian, and Arabic.
