Working to protect your rights

A Principled Approach

About Borys Law
Being charged with a criminal offence is one of the most stressful things a person can experience. All you want to know is when it will be resolved and what the outcome will be. Unfortunately, you don’t have control over that. The only thing you do have control over is who you select to advocate on your behalf. At Borys Law, we provide a complete defence with a view to negating or minimizing the damaging effects of criminal allegations. We do this through expertise in our own areas of law as well as through collaborating with leading experts in other fields of law (such as immigration or family law) and science (such as toxicologists and forensic experts). Our progressive use of technology saves you time and money and our commitment to complete client care helps to minimize stress when you are facing difficulties.
About Simon Borys
Before beginning my career as a defence lawyer, I was a police officer. This experience gave me a unique set of skills and insights into the world of law enforcement and criminal justice that I now draw upon to defend my clients. It was actually my experiences in policing that led to my desire to be a defence lawyer. I saw firsthand just how important it is that there be respect for peoples’ rights in the enforcement of the law and that there be checks and balances on the powers of the police. I also saw that sometimes people are actually innocent, despite the evidence against them, and that those who do commit crimes are not “bad people”; they often just made an error in judgment and deserve to have the law applied with an even hand. This is what motivates me to do the work that I do.

A Clear Process

Initial Consultation

We are always happy to receive your emails and phone calls inquiring about our services. We understand that choosing a lawyer is a big decision and that you might want to speak or meet with us to discuss your matter before deciding whether you’d like to retain us. This initial consultation should give you all the information you need to determine if we are the right fit for you.

Client Education

After the initial consultation, we will strategize a thoughtful plan of action addressing the matter at hand, collaborating with leading experts as required. You will be involved at every point (unless you just want us to take care of everything for you), and the implications of all decisions will be clearly communicated to you. We place a high value on informing and educating our clients, and will take the time to outline the process and explain procedures so that you have a clear sense of where your matter stands.

Ongoing Case Management

Once you have retained our services, we are there for you every step of the way and will continue to address all your concerns until the matter is resolved – no matter how big, or small. For instance, if your licence is compromised as a result of your charges, we can arrange pickup and drop off for you to all court appearances and lawyer-client meetings at no extra charge. We also do our best to make interacting with us as efficient and accessible as possible, offering text and email communications, virtual Skype meetings, digital document signing services, a secure online portal, and online payment options by credit card and e-transfer.
