Every one deserves another chance- This is how Stephen approaches every case for every client: After a thorough review of the charges with his client, Stephen determines whether the best course of action is to fight the charges by taking them to trial, or to plea bargain a favourable result.  In the end, Stephen draws on his decades of experience to navigate the choppy waters of the criminal justice system, always mindful of achieving for his clients the best result at a reasonable cost. If he determines the best strategy is to obtain professional help for his client, Stephen will choose from a group of available mental health and addiction counselors to obtain for his client an assessment of his or her problem, counseling and/or treatment, and a report outlining the rehabilitative steps taken by the client. This report is presented to the crown attorney or judge to obtain the best possible result; most of the time the client will end up  happy by getting the help they need, and avoiding a criminal record.
