Approach and Strategy

The majority of our work is done before we even step foot in court for the trial. We dedicate our efforts to pre-trial preparations and overall strategy in planning your best defence. This attention to detail, along with a limited number of clients will always make the difference and tilt the scales of justice in your favour.

"I would like to take a moment to say what a great lawyer Mr. Richard Darrah is. He represented me in a case with a great winning outcome. He really went the distance for me in court and proved no doubt that his law skills and tactics are phenomenal. He gave me fantastic service. He was extremely professional. He was always very prompt with his follow up phone calls to me. I was very impressed that I could get a hold of him whenever I needed to speak to him. He made me and my wife feel more at ease with the case considering how traumatizing the whole experience was." 


"I am a registered professional for the Canadian government and my career and life were on the line with the charges against me prior to meeting barrister Darrah. He was diligent, demonstrated mastery of knowledge, the law and his professional standards. His articulation reassurance and his competent defence was led
 to the dismissal of both charges. I could afford the luxury of avoiding a criminal record that would have tainted all my career hopes and aspirations and definitely offering me a second chance in life." - A.E.

"I was facing my first criminal charge, a sexual assault, and I was devastated. I did my research on criminal lawyers and chose Richard Darrah. From our first meeting, I felt like I had hope for my future. After 10 days of a lengthy trial, I was found not guilty. Richard's cross examination of the complainant was amazing and highlighted the weaknesses in the Crown's case. I recommend Richard to everyone and anyone facing a criminal charge - he really cares and goes out of his way for his clients." - E.B.
