A complete Defence.

choose your lawyer carefully.

The mere truth won’t do. You must have a lawyer.
– Charles Dickens

“After my arrest, I met with another criminal lawyer and paid a hefty retainer only for them to tell me a few weeks later that I should plead guilty and hope for less jail time. I could not imagine going to jail. That’s when I turned to Alex who took the time to sit down with me and really understand my case. I am grateful to his devotion and patience with me. Thanks to his arguments in Court, the Judge found me not guilty and I got my life back.“

Trica Law is here to defend you.

If you’ve been charged with an offense, you need someone who will fight for you.

I work exclusively in the area of criminal defense law. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been charged with assault, fraud, sexual assault, drugs, impaired driving or even first or second-degree murder, my job is to make sure you’re heard, you’re respected, and you’re in control.

It is an open secret in the city of Toronto that, while crime rates have decreased, incarceration rates have risen.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a student who made the wrong choice, a professional charged with a drug offense, or an entrepreneur charged with fraud, my goal is to protect your future.

I will create the best outcome for you, regardless of your charges. Everyone deserves a chance. My job is to make sure you get it.


I believe you, I respect you, I will fight for you. I have experience with the following kinds of cases…


Assault of any type is a serious matter, no matter how minor it may seem.


Impaired Driving

Impaired driving in Ontario can impact you for years to come. Don’t let one mistake ruin your life.



Drug crimes can quickly escalate. Whether it’s your first offense or it’s happened before, you need a lawyer.


Police Misconduct

There is a line between necessary vs. excessive use of force. If the police crossed the line, it’s time to talk.



Blind-sighted by a fraud charge? You need a swift and strong defense.



Being charged with a weapons offense is serious in Ontario. You can’t afford to let it escalate.


I don’t defend crimes, I defend innocent people. Until they are found guilty, there are no other kinds of people for me to defend, and what difference does it make what an innocent person is accused of?
– Edward Greenspan


Being charged with a criminal offence can be stressful and overwhelming. You are likely standing in a place you never thought you’d be.

That’s why I will stand by your side in Court and fight to defend you. At Trica Law, the only assumption is that you are innocent. You deserve to have your rights respected, and I will fight fervently to help you regain your freedom.

Beware of lawyers who recommend that you plead guilty right off the bat. I will never suggest that you plead guilty without looking at every inch of the case against you. I will never suggest that you plead guilty without first advising you of every defense we could possibly use.

The reality is that, in every criminal case, the Crown must prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt, and this is not an easy thing to do. You may have a stronger case than you think, and more options than first perceived, but it takes a takes a thorough lawyer to get the right result. Even the steepest uphill battle is winnable with the right strategy.

I understand that this is not a ‘case’ to you – this your life. My job is to do everything I can to get you free and back on track.

“When my daughter was arrested for drug possession, my husband and I were in shock. We met with a few criminal lawyers, but after meeting with Alex, we hired him on the spot. We could tell he cared and was fair with his fees. It was a good decision, as he got the police to drop all charges and our daughter was able to put it behind her.”
