Clients often complain about supposedly exorbitant rates charged by criminal lawyers but reading about a respected practitioner being beaten almost to death at his home must make other “respectable” professionals wonder why anyone would do this job for any price! Dealing on a regular basis with “people” capable of such cowardly viciousness requires a rare type of person and is worth more than most criminal lawyers in Montreal are paid.
