When you hire criminal defence lawyer Anthony De Marco, you are retaining the services of a knowledgeable, experienced and leading member of the criminal defence bar. Since 1985 I have been dedicated to protecting the rights of people throughout the greater Toronto area who have been charged with a crime. As my client, you can rely on me to provide you with the prepared, strong and fully committed representation you deserve.
I am a Senior Partner at Monaco Boiani De Marco, Barristers and Solicitors, in Toronto. From the beginning, I have dedicated my law practice to criminal defence. I have gained experience and a comprehensive knowledge of a broad variety of criminal matters, from theft to drug offences to sexual assault and other serious violent offences. I prepare every case as if it is going to trial, and I have a track record of success at all trial court levels.
The Right Experience for Your Case
A lawyer cannot safely dabble in criminal law. Since the introduction of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the volume of case law dealing with our basic Constitutional rights has grown, and criminal lawyers must keep track of every recent development in order to properly serve their clients.
I graduated from Osgoode Hall Law School in 1983. That same year, I graduated from Osgoode Hall's Intensive Program in Criminal Law where I learned a great deal about the criminal law system. As part of the program, I prosecuted and defended cases. The insight I gained from both sides of the legal process has been a tremendous asset in my legal practice.
I am a member of Legal Aid Ontario's Extremely Serious Criminal Matters (ESCM) panel, which means I am able to represent Legal Aid clients in the most serious types of criminal cases, such as murder, guns and gangs cases and police project cases. The criteria for admission to the ESCM panel are very strict, and only a senior lawyer with the necessary experience can be admitted. I am also a member of Legal Aid Ontario's Complex Case Rate (CCR) panel which provides for the payment of enhanced lawyer fees.
If your case requires a jury trial, I have the necessary experience, advocacy skills and confidence to convincingly argue your case to the jury.
