The lawyers at Heller, Rubel are committed to providing every client we serve with carefully thought out and well researched legal advice at each stage of the criminal process. We not only defend clients who have been charged with a criminal, regulatory or other quasi-criminal offence, but also advise clients who are being investigated in relation to a possible charge, or find themselves as a witness or complainant in criminal or quasi-criminal proceedings. We regularly appear in courts throughout Ontario and occasionally in other provinces. We represent individuals, small businesses and corporations.

Our firm has strategic resources to successfully deal with problems ranging from minor provincial regulatory offences to the most complex of criminal charges. We represent clients faced with all manner of criminal charges including: “white collar” crime; property offences like theft, mischief and robbery; offences against the person ranging from simple assault to more serious aggravated assaults, attempt murder and homicides; all manner of sexual offences; driving related offences, such as impaired operation of a motor vehicle and “over .80”; and drug related offences.

Heller, Rubel is an acknowledged leader in the specialized area of practice commonly referred to as ‘white collar’ crime. Offences which fall into this category include: fraud, tax evasion and other Income Tax Act matters, Customs Act offences and Competition Act matters. We not only assist clients facing difficulties in Canada, but also individuals and entities dealing with cross-border or international legal issues.

Through our years of legal practice we have fostered excellent relationships with lawyers and legal professionals working in other areas of the law that can impact criminal or quasi-criminal matters. Our interactions with some of the best business, tax, family, and immigration lawyers ensure we can advise our clients with a view to the overall implications of their legal issues and co-ordinate the most advantageous resolution to the issues and obstacles our clients face.
