Theft & Fraud

Theft charges arise from the allegation of fraudulently or without permission taking property that doesn’t belong to you. These offences range from minor thefts to multi-million dollar frauds. A conviction can have significant implications, including a criminal record, imprisonment, restitution payment and potential employment or immigration problems.

If you are charged with theft or fraud, it is in your best interests to have an experienced criminal defence lawyer by your side. At Brass Law Office, we have a successful record of getting the charges withdrawn or securing acquittals at trial. We fight for every client and use innovative approaches including technology and retaining private investigators. We have experience putting forward several defences including:


  • The identification of the accused cannot be proved
  • The accused had permission to take the item
  • The theft/fraud never occurred
  • Exclusion of unconstitutionally obtained evidence

We will aggressively defend your rights and raise every argument available to fight the allegations against you. If you or a loved one has been charged with theft or fraud, call Brass Law Office at 613-238-5757 (mobile: Alan – 613-762-2040 or Shira: 613-983-4947) or email us at for a free, no-obligation consultation.
