Vancouver Criminal Law – Client Testimonials
“I called David when my teenage son was charged with sexual assault. I knew that there were a lot of facts missing with the way the case was being presented in Court; especially the difficult circumstances my son has been dealing with all of his life. As a parent, you hope that you will never see your child go through something like that. It was obvious from our initial meeting with David that he has dealt with many youth matters during his time as a lawyer. He assisted me in accessing community resources for my son, most importantly, mental health support. My son’s case represented a very difficult time in our lives, but with the help of David and his staff, the future looks bright. My son is now getting the help he desperately needed for a long time, and for that, I can’t thank David enough.”"A very supportive team."
“I live in Whitehorse, Yukon, where I work as a truck driver. My livelihood was at risk when I was charged with impaired driving and faced the devastating reality that I may lose my license for at least a year. Luckily, I was referred to David Tarnow by a friend who had used his services in Vancouver. After a few months of negotiations with Crown Counsel, David was able to resolve my matter, and the best part is that I didn’t lose my license, and I have no criminal record. My family and I are extremely grateful for Mr. Tarnow’s hard work. It really paid off.”"Will definitely be recommending!"
“I was at a dinner party at a friend’s house, had a few glasses of wine, and made the poor decision of driving home — and was stopped by police just around the corner from where I live. I blew over the legal limit and was charged with a DUI.
I have never been charged with a criminal offence in my life and it was a difficult time in my life. David Tarnow fully explained my situation to me and the legal principles that applied. With his hard work I was cleared of all charges!”"I was very happy with the result!"
“I was charged with assault after an altercation that I did not initiate. While the police had no time to hear my side of the story and were quick to charge me, Jason demonstrated not only a great level of professionalism but was very compassionate to my situation. We went to trial and I was found not guilty!”"Professional and compassionate."
“I was charged in a complicated situation involving elements of the both Criminal Code and immigration law. The amount of disclosure I received from the Crown prosecutors was overwhelming to me… but Dave helped me get through it all. Dave managed to work out favourable agreement with Crown that not only allowed me to continue living in Canada, but also ensured that I had no criminal record so that I can freely travel to the U.S.”"His knowledge of the law is impressive."
“After speaking with a few lawyers regarding the appeal of my 90-day Immediate Roadside Prohibition (IRP), I felt most comfortable with Jason. He had ample time to explain to me how the law applied to the particular facts of my case, and when it came time to do the oral review with the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles, I was impressed with his style of advocacy… and obviously the adjudicator was as well, as the driving prohibition was set aside!”"Impressive advocacy skills."
