Lawrence Ben Eliezer

After obtaining his law degree from the University of Calgary in 1987, Lawrence moved to Toronto and began his career as a criminal defence lawyer. Since being called to the Bar in Ontario in 1989, Lawrence has defended clients charged with offences ranging from theft to dangerous driving causing death at every level of court. The starting point for any matter is the particular situation in which the accused find themselves. Every person has a different life story that must be taken into account in order to make full answer and defence from the moment of arrest, to the bail hearing and through the conclusion of trial.

Lawrence’s life story has led him to practice the importance of working together with the client to achieve the best available result. Accomplishing that goal means understanding the client’s needs and priorities within the difficult workings of the criminal justice system. The client is often Lawrence’s best asset in the defence of legal rights. That is why Lawrence’s approach always includes close consultation with the client. That is also why Lawrence is available and accessible 24/7 to deal with any concerns that might arise.
