Murder is the most serious criminal offence in the Criminal Code. The taking, or accidental taking (manslaughter) of another person’s life is prosecuted to the fullest extent. The Crown will assign the best prosecutors to these types of cases.

If you are accused of homicide, your freedom is at significant risk. The penalty is life imprisonment, and the notoriety of being a “murderer” is equally as severe. Only the most capable criminal defence lawyer can obtain a favourable result against these hard-fought cases.

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.
