Supreme Court of Canada Appeal Lawyers

The Supreme Court of Canada is the highest court in the country. If you have lost an appeal in the Court of Appeal of any province, we have the expertise to take your appeal to the next level.

The Supreme Court of Canada hears appeals from the court of appeal in each province and territory. Abergel Goldstein & Partners LLP is based in Ottawa, within walking distance of the Supreme Court of Canada. We accept cases that are headed to the Supreme Court of Canada from throughout Canada—no matter where your case originates, we can take your appeal to the next level.

An appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada requires specialized expertise. In the criminal law context, the Supreme Court generally only accepts appeals in two situations. First, where one of the judges on the court of appeal dissents—that is, disagrees with the other judges.

Second, the Supreme Court may grant “leave”—or permission—to appeal in special cases. The Supreme Court grants permission in very few cases, so asking for leave to appeal requires special preparation. Leave is only granted where a case raises an issue of public or national importance. In a Supreme Court appeal, your appeal lawyer must know how to frame the case and present it to the court in a way that maximizes your chances of getting leave. It is not enough to say that you are innocent, or even that the court of appeal made a mistake—you must show that your case is important enough to be taken up by the highest court in Canada.



Abergel Goldstein & Partners LLP is based in Ottawa, but we bring a lot more than just being in close proximity to the Supreme Court of Canada. Our firm has extensive experience in the Supreme Court. Our appeal-practice leader, Howard Krongold, regularly appears before the Supreme Court of Canada, and has presented argument before the Court in several significant cases.

Doug Ford & Doug Downey told us they were going to fuck with the judicial appointment process. Then they did it. From me on how the Double Ds broke a good system so they could appoint JPs and judges who think like them:

From me & @crich114 in @OttawaCitizen: Ottawa police and prosectors were given a new power to unclog the court system. They've barely used it. The scariest part is that the Feds preferred drug policy is to give police more discretion, it won't work either:
