Sophisticated Criminal Defence to Protect Your Rights
International crime is a highly specialized area of criminal law because it requires knowledge of international criminal laws as well as an understanding of immigration laws which may have bearing on your case, among many other facets. As such, not every criminal law firm is equipped to handle such offences successfully.
Over the years, the Ottawa law firm of Bayne Sellar Ertel Carter has developed a unique practice in matters of extradition and the criminal defence of those accused of international crimes. Having defended clients in a variety of criminal matters since 1972, the firm is fully prepared to assist clients in the defence of their rights both in Canada and internationally.
