Organization overview

Peter Beach and Sarah Starkie joined forces in 2013, to form Beach & Starkie. Joined in 2017 by Stephanie Moore, the three members of the firm offer a diverse range of legal services to individuals charged with criminal offences.

At Beach & Starkie, our clients are our number one priority. With over 50 years of combined experience in criminal law, our lawyers provide clients with effective and specialized representation in defence of criminal charges. We take the time to get to know our clients, and tailor a unique defence to each individual client's needs.

Anyone charged with a criminal offence has the right to a strong defence. Choosing an experienced and capable lawyer is an essential step in your defence. Our lawyers' experience and reputations speak for themselves. That said, we believe you should feel comfortable with us on a personal level as well, which is why we offer a free consultation at the outset.

We understand the stress and anxiety that comes with being charged with a criminal offence. We strive to minimize the impact a criminal charge can have on your life. We know that communication and a trusting solicitor-client relationship are essential to a successful defence. We will guide you through the criminal justice system as smoothly as possible and will keep you well informed along every stage in the process.

We charge our clients using clear and predictable block fees that are agreed upon at the outset. We do track the amount of time that we spend on our clients' files, but we do not charge per hour. We want our clients to feel free to pick up the phone and call us with any questions and concerns, without fear of being charged additional fees.
