Practice Areas

Drug Charges


Defending against drug charges is a specialised area within criminal law that requires a lawyer with a deep understanding of the complexities of these cases. The investigations and prosecutions of drug cases tend to be more sophisticated than other criminal proceedings, and having a lawyer with experience in this field is essential.

driving offences


Driving charges are a common type of criminal charge in Canada. One mistake, such as having one drink too many, can lead to severe consequences and a criminal prosecution. Patrick Fagan has a proven track record of successfully defending clients charged with impaired driving, over .08, and refusing to blow.

assault violent crimes


Rise in violent crimes has led to stricter laws, increased police surveillance, and harsher sentences in court. Many offences that were once punishable by fine or probation now carry the possibility of jail time. These cases often receive media attention and can evoke strong emotions and pressure from the public to convict.

sexual offences


The rules surrounding interpersonal relations, including intimacy, are constantly changing in the 21st century. Conduct that may have been considered a misguided advance in the past, may now be used as evidence for a sexual assault prosecution. Being innocent does not protect you from the risks, uncertainty, and anxiety associated with criminal proceedings.

Defending Drug Charges


Defending Drug Charges

Defending drug prosecutions is arguably an area of expertise within the general practice of criminal law. Drug investigations tend to be more sophisticated and the resulting prosecutions more complex than many other criminal proceedings. In choosing a lawyer to defend a drug prosecution, there is no substitute for meaningful experience.

You want a lawyer with a well-established record of not just “defending” drug prosecutions but “winning” drug cases. Patrick Fagan’s track record is set out herein for all to see and speaks for itself.

Patrick Fagan’s Appraisal

5 Stars

I am forever indebted to this man. My first lawyer ignored my calls and emails for 6 months then told me I was going to jail, since my case was a lost cause. Patrick Fagan won my case after my first lawyer told me it was impossible. He was supportive the entire time and offered multiple plans of attack. He is worth every dollar. He literally worked a miracle for me. I am so grateful for him. He is worth every dollar.

Cool as a cucumber. I have seen Pat cross examine detectives and he literally makes them squirm. I still remember vividly while I was sitting in the court room listening to my charges being read, I turned to Pat and he winked at me and smiled. Turns out he already knew we won the case. Such a stoic man. Money well spent. Thank you once again.

— J.D.
