Breaking & entering is defined as going into a place without legal authority (even if nothing is “broken” in the process), either with the intent to commit an offence, or actually committing an offence.

The consequences of being convicted of this offence largely depend on the location of the crime. In its most serious form, home invasion, the maximum penalty is life imprisonment, and the Crown will fight to have you incarcerated for a significant period of time. It is imperative that you enlist the services of a strong defence lawyer to defend you against this charge and its consequences.

I am Michael Bloom, an experienced criminal defence lawyer who will defend you just as mercilessly as the prosecution will fight against you. I will thoroughly examine your case, and all of the evidence that the Crown has against you, some of which may not have even been provided to you. My experience working as a Crown prosecutor taught me how to identify weaknesses in the Crown’s case. With this knowledge, I will develop a defence strategy and trial plan that will provide you with the strongest possible defence.
