Tom Rees & Company lawyers focus on criminal defence. Adult and youth criminal law are similar in that they both rely on the Criminal Code of Canada, but youth criminal law contains special procedures and laws that apply only to young people.
All of the criminal lawyers at Tom Rees & Company are trained in the Youth Criminal Justice Act, and the special processes for young people charged with crimes.
