Craig Penney Toronto Criminal Lawyer — Reviews

I couldn't have picked a better Toronto criminal lawyer to represent me than Craig Penney. From our first meeting through to the conclusion of my case, Mr Penney's professional guidance, advice and demeanor allowed me to leave him to manage things as he saw appropriate. I never worried that the case was progressing in a way that I was not comfortable with or that my best interests were not at the heart of everything that Mr. Penney did on my behalf. From the outset and due to his years of experience and knowledge he was able to set out for me his approach in my case and the outcomes which he expected to achieve. This went a long way to allaying my worries and concerns. It also dispelled the worst outcomes which I had envisioned and replaced them with expectations that I was comfortable in accepting. The final outcome was reached within a very short period of time and was better than even Mr Penney, perhaps, thought was achievable. I will always be grateful to Mr Penney for turning a potential life altering event into something much less eventful. Read the Court transcript where S.R.'s assault and mischief charges were stayed.

The day I got arrested and charged with criminal charge of indecent act in a public washroom I thought my life was completely destroyed. Didn't know Craig, just found him on the internet after anxiously browsing for hours through so many criminal lawyers in Toronto. All the good testimonials and information posted on this website really helped me to make the decision to call him right away. Even though, it was a Sunday late afternoon, he answered my call. We quickly arranged a meeting for Monday and right away, after meeting Craig, I felt very confident that he was the right lawyer to represent me in my case. From the first day to the day my case was withdrawn, he kept me grounded and focused and for that I was able to make it through this nightmare. No one in my life knew about it but Craig, and later the therapist he recommended for me to see. So, I have to thank Craig for his professionalism and dedication to help me not only to resolve my situation the best way we could possibly ask for, but also for referring me to an excellent professional for counselling sessions that not only helped me with my case, but mainly helped me to reduce my anxiety and to not feel alone, which is the worse feeling during a situation like this. So I would and will recommend Craig to anyone, specifically if someone is charged with a similar offence. So thank you again Craig! A.F.

It was a frightening experience to be arrested for child pornography charges. It was a very difficult time and I felt hopeless. My lawyer didn't relay as much information as he should have. I never knew where I stood. Then, I met Craig. He was right there in my face, intense but not in a negative way. There was an overload of information from him. I knew where I stood and could make informed decisions. He also referred me to other resources for my non-legal issues which turned out to be a great help. If you are charged with a similar offence, you have to hire someone who has experience with these charges and Craig is the only one I know.

Hi Craig, Just wanted to again say thanks for sticking with me through all of this because the end result was much more than I could have expected. I know that when we had discussed the chances of beating an impaired the chances were very slim to none. And at times when I wasn't so upbeat about the case you kept me positive so thanks for that. I'm so glad that I took this to the end, because my life now has a much more positive outlook than it did just 24hrs ago. As I have time to reflect it seems like every decision we made led to another which actually in the end came together to help you win the case for me. Just an awesome job yesterday and my mom agreed and sends her thanks too. Its pretty hard to put in words how happy I am but I am sure you know how I feel. Anyway Craig again thank you so much for your hard work and it was great getting the chance to work with you. S.W.'s morning-after thank-you e-mail.

Being a professional, a conviction of a criminal offence meant immediate disbarment from the industry and a waste of all those years of education. Suffice to say, choosing the best lawyer was the most important decision of my life. After interviewing some of the top 5-6 lawyers in GTA, Craig stood out from the pact. Most other lawyers were hoping for technical, procedural or mediation resolution to the case. Craig's method of attacking the case was to focus on things in control (i.e. evidence, experts, witness). His methodical breakdown of the case and complex defence strategies gave me the confidence that I needed in knowing that I had retained the best lawyer. The police (OPP) had done a thorough investigation and with me insulting the officers, there was no chance the Crown would ever mediate this case and on top of that, they were going to seek a higher penalty. I have never been charged with a criminal offence before, let alone in a back seat of a cruiser, so this was a very traumatic experience. But knowing Craig was on my side, made all that fear go away. Not only did Craig get the criminal charges dismissed, he also got the provincial offences dropped and I didn't even hire him for the traffic tickets. Best Christmas present ever! I would not hesitate to recommend Craig Penney to anyone, he truly is one of the most professional, hard working and trial ready lawyers out there. Go see for yourself! At the bare minimum, go for a consult with Craig , and you will see why he is the best of the best! Thank You Craig Penney, you saved my profession, livelihood and my life!

I was scared and shocked by the time I was being charged. Not only because this will ruin my future and credibility, but also destroying my relationship with family and friends. I dare not to share with anyone else. After Mr Penney took charge of the case, he suggested me to go on a treatment to share, analyze and understand what, why and how I got into this situation with the others. With Mr Penney's care and effort, I can finally turn to a grown up and become more mature. With all those ups and downs, I will carefully guard my thoughts and stay away from trouble. Thank you Mr. Penney! Read the transcript where the Crown withdrew P.Y.'s indecent act charge.
