Summary Conviction Appeals

Court of Appeal for Ontario

Supreme Court of Canada

At their heart, criminal trials are a human business. Judges make mistakes. Juries are confused on the law. Sometimes, lawyers fail to present favourable evidence or give their clients the information they need to make an informed choice about how to conduct their trial.

That’s where appeals come in. Chris is lead appeal counsel at Rusonik, O’Connor, Robbins, Ross, Gorham, & Angelini, LLP. He has appeared numerous times before the Summary Conviction Appeal Court and the Court of Appeal for Ontario. He also sits on the junior roster of the Criminal Lawyers’ Association’s Litigation Committee, a team of lawyers who select important cases for intervention at the Supreme Court of Canada. He has the experience to expertly make your case before the court of appeal.

If you or a loved one have been convicted of a criminal offence, Chris can help. Most appeal courts require you to file your appeal within 30 days of your conviction; don’t hesitate to call Chris to speak about your right of appeal.
