DP Philosophy

At Derstine Penman our goal is to provide you with a vigorous, professional defence to your charges. Your defence will be vigorous because we believe in providing you a strong defence which fearlessly raises all issues and leaves no stone unturned. Your criminal defence will be professional because we are well respected in the courts for our diligence, our expertise and our attention to detail.

Being charged criminally is a stressful and potentially frightening experience. Our commitment is to be at your side, guiding you through the process with the goal of having you found not guilty of your charges. If you have already 
been convicted we will do our utmost to overturn your conviction in the Ontario Court of Appeal or the Supreme Court of Canada. 

At Derstine, Penman our lawyers have been involved in very high profile cases and our commitment to all our clients remains the same – a vigorous professional defence. We have within the last few years secured acquittals in many high profile superior court matters including first degree murder, and have had many successes on appeals to the Ontario Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada.

If you or a loved one has been charged criminally with a serious offence, please contact us and we will be happy to explain how we can help you. We have exceptional experience defending cases on all charges in the Criminal Code including complex, lengthy trials and appeals. Let us use our expertise to defend you. Criminal defence is our passion.
