Toronto Lawyer Provided Pro-Bono Services at G20 Bail Courts

With the media reporting more than 900 G20-related arrests, it is no wonder we have a huge backlog in bail court this morning.

Thankfully, the Province of Ontario had the foresight to set up the courthouse at 2201 Finch Avenue to process those individuals arrested in the G20 protests. These courtrooms were staffed with extra crown attorneys, security and legal aid to help process those charged more quickly.

And thankfully there are people like Adam Goodman in this world to help those who have been charged. For many of those charged over the weekend, it will have been their first introduction to the criminal justice system. And I am sure having counsel readily available to them for guidance during this process will have been invaluable service.

Adam selflessly spent much of Sunday giving his time and knowledge to assist those who had been charged as a result of the G20.

Natalie was spirited to start this company after a frustrating and poor personal experience when searching for a lawyer back in the late nineties. “I quickly realized that the tools available to assist someone in finding the right lawyer were grossly inadequate. Not only inadequate for the individual in need of a lawyer, but also inadequate for the lawyers in search of new clients. There had to be a better way to connect clients and lawyers in a more efficient manner – without wasting everybody’s time and effort”, explains Natalie.

Natalie brings a passion to the business that ensures the entire LawyerLocate.ca team strives to improve the service for both lawyers and the general public. To that end, she is committed to ongoing communication with our members and welcomes and relies on clients’ input to continually evolve the service to make it better for all.

    Good story, great article. Goes to show that the negative stigma that most lawyers get is not completely true. There is a great need for good lawyers in the world. Both in criminal law and especially in business litigation.
