The firm’s statement outlines the conscientious approach that William Jaksa and his team take to every case they take on. With a deep understanding of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Mr. Jaksa ensures that the burden of proof rests with the Crown and that law enforcement officials have observed correct procedures during an arrest and the pre-trial arraignment.
Murder rates peaked in Canada during the 1970s and 1980s. However, while recent statistics show that current levels are still well below these historical highs, a surge in gang violence has accelerated an increase in violent crime and a homicide rate not seen since the mid-2000s as per a National Post report.
Mr. Jaksa’s intimate knowledge of the Canadian Criminal Code section 231 makes him well-placed to ensure that the charges brought against his clients are reasonable in light of the available evidence. The team has successfully reduced many charges from first-degree to second-degree murder. Jaksa brings expertise in establishing intent, or a lack thereof, and the presence of a reasonable doubt in proving a defendant’s motivation.
The firm has represented thousands of clients and helped to establish credible defences on the grounds of self-defence, intoxication, and provocation, and seen murder charges reduced to manslaughter.
From an initial arrest through to bail hearings, pre-trial motions, court appearances, and appellate proceedings, William Jaksa is on hand to provide expert legal counsel, explaining in simple terms the options available to clients.
A spokesperson says, “If you are charged with first-degree murder, second-degree murder, or manslaughter, it is crucial to have an experienced Toronto murder lawyer who has extensive experience dealing with murder trials. The penalties for first and second-degree murder can be very different and it’s essential to have a criminal defence lawyer who understands the nuances of criminal law working on your case.”
