Stephen Hebscher and Bruce Karten (Retired) are recognized as two of the most prominent and respected Toronto criminal lawyers, practicing as ‘The Criminal Law Team’. They bring over 60 years of experience to their law practice.
Bruce and Stephen each have their own roster of clients, however, every client benefits from the experience of both these distinguished lawyers. They work together on cases to bring their combined knowledge to the table on behalf of each of their clients.
The preparation of a competent and experienced criminal defence lawyer can often be the difference between being found guilty or not guilty of a criminal charge. It is absolutely necessary that you feel comfortable in the knowledge that your lawyer is someone you can relate to and one who is committed to your cause throughout the process in the criminal justice system. This is our mission as Toronto criminal lawyers at The Criminal Law Team.
Outstanding Success Rate
Our primary goal is to successfully defend our clients, and this has been revealed by the outstanding history of results we have achieved on behalf of the clients we’ve represented, many of whom have never received a criminal record nor seen any jail time. We provide a vigorous defence for our clients, but most importantly, we support them through what is often a very difficult and emotional time. As a team, we are results-oriented, and strive to make the process of navigating our clients through the criminal justice system as easy and stress-free as possible. From the first meeting, you will feel at ease and confident that you are leaving your case in the hands of two accomplished Toronto criminal lawyers.
We have a significant breadth of experience and have the ability to defend any crime as well as a substantial number of regulatory offences contained in a large number of the quasi-criminal statues on both a provincial and federal level . We each have additional specific strengths – Stephen is recognized as having extensive experience in the area of mental health law, while Bruce has substantial experience in the field of sexual assault and historical sexual assault. In addition, we have successfully obtained favourable results on numerous, serious drug cases.
As The Criminal Law Team, we have defended thousands of clients, armed with a thorough understanding of the judicial process and an updated knowledge of constantly changing criminal laws and the judicial interpretations of these laws. Over 60 years of combined experience in the courtroom translates into solid results you can count on and always, in the shortest possible period of time. We support and believe in our clients as true partners from beginning to end.
