Mental Health Law

This is an area that is very important to me. Unfortunately, our legal system does not always deal fairly with people suffering from mental health issues; you need a lawyer who is familiar with this area. Mental health issues can be extremely relevant to how legal issues are dealt with. I have significant experience in dealing with these matters in our criminal courts, including at the Ontario Court of Appeal, the Ontario Review Board, and the Consent and Capacity Board, and I have worked with many psychiatrists in Eastern Ontario to achieve positive outcomes.
