The Law

My Legal Practice

I started my career as a criminal lawyer (and a secret writer) back in 1991. Fortunately I soon met up with my great friend Alvin Shidlowski, and we’ve practiced together ever since. A few years ago we were joined by Jacob Jesin, who is not only a most talented young lawyer, but Mr. Technology who keeps us all on track.

Together we are a fine team.  Fortunately for me, as my writing career has taken me away more and more, Alvin and Jake have stepped up to carry the load.

I’m often asked if I am still a practicing criminal lawyer. The answer is an emphatic yes. But gone for now are the days of my doing long, grinding trials. For example, a few months ago when murder case came to me, I was forced to pass it to Alvin and Jake.

If you happen to be looking for a lawyer, just drop me a line on the website. I check it every day. And one of us will take very good care of you.




Over the last few years I’ve developed this two-hour writing seminar for lawyers. I’ve given it at the Osgoode Hall LLM course, and many of the top law firms in Canada.

For lawyers in Ontario who take the course, the receive two hours of DCP.

It’s hands on, fun and you will learn something.

Here’s the outline of the course.

Get in touch if you want to get together a group of lawyers to do a seminar, or if your firm or law school is interested.
