Acclaimed Toronto-based law firm William Jaksa Criminal Litigation (416-900-0998) announces updated services for lawyers who are facing disciplinary charges.

The firm’s latest launch provides robust representation for attorneys who find themselves on the wrong side of the criminal justice system or in trouble with their regulatory bodies. William Jaksa brings many years of experience in assembling evidence and preparing witnesses to bolster a client’s defence coupled with an innate knowledge of the ethical standards upheld by The Federation of Law Societies of Canada and the Law Society of Ontario.

The announcement underlines the breadth of Mr. Jaksa’s experience across all facets of the Canadian justice system, instilling confidence in his clients that their case is in safe hands. The firm’s approach to professional disciplinary charges ensures that the facts can be established quickly and steps can be taken to limit any unnecessary damage to reputations and livelihoods.

According to the Law Society of Ontario, professional misconduct by lawyers refers to actions which bring discredit to the legal profession. This constitutes violating or attempting to violate the rules set down by the Law Society Act and the Paralegal Rules of Conduct. Misappropriating or dealing dishonestly with a client’s money or property, engaging in conduct that is prejudicial to the application of justice, and improperly influencing a government agency or official will also result in disciplinary charges being brought.

William Jaksa advocates for a fast response when an individual is first made aware of charges being brought against them. While lawyers are experts in their field, it can be a very different experience when one is defending oneself. Mr. Jaksa brings a calm, collected manner and an objective eye on the particulars of a case, ensuring that clients do not incriminate themselves through their efforts to cooperate with any ongoing investigations.

The firm ensures that sound legal advice and representation are at hand from the early stages of proceedings right through until a hearing, holding the disciplinary body to account for any breaches in procedure and making sure the burden of proof rests with the prosecution.

A spokesperson says, “If you are facing a professional regulation complaint or have a pending professional discipline matter, it is important to have an experienced lawyer by your side. William Jaksa has been practicing for over 15 years and is experienced with helping professionals navigate this process.”
