Consequently, the law relating to homicide is among the most complex and nuanced in the legal system. William Jaksa helps to simplify the process for clients, explaining all of the options available to them and ensuring they fully understand their rights from arrest through to trial.

Mr. Jaksa’s experience in defending murder charges ensures that no detail is missed or procedural regulation is disregarded by law enforcement. The firm helps place the burden of proof on the Crown, making sure that culpable homicide can be demonstrated beyond a reasonable doubt.

William Jaksa can also advise on whether second-degree murder charges might be reduced to manslaughter. His experience in presenting evidence and pleading cases before judges and juries makes him well-placed to deliver a highly credible defence.

The firm recognizes the knock-on effect of criminal proceedings on the families of both the accused and the victims, bringing an empathic approach to what is a confusing and frightening experience for most people.

Mr. Jaksa has been defending criminal cases for over 15 years and has garnered a strong reputation for building effective, strategic defences for his clients. He is a graduate of the Law School at Winston University and a member of the Law Society of Canada. Learn more at

A spokesperson says, “A conviction for first-degree murder automatically carries a term of sentence of jail for life with no eligibility of parole for 25 years. If you have been accused or are under investigation for murder, you need to contact an experienced criminal defence lawyer with experience handling homicide charges in Toronto.”
