HUMAN TRAFFICKING

Skilled Defence for Human Trafficking Charges

Human trafficking allegations can involve a wide range of criminal charges, and a conviction could result in deportation, imprisonment and fines. With so much on the line, it is in your best interests to consult an experienced criminal defence lawyer as quickly as possible.

Neuberger & Partners LLP is an experienced criminal law firm that has developed a record of success* in the Greater Toronto Area and throughout Ontario. Our Toronto human trafficking defence lawyers will carefully evaluate the circumstances of your case. When necessary, we work with experts and private investigators in order to build our clients’ cases and prepare evidence for trial. We will use every available means to challenge the prosecution’s evidence against you.

Defence In A Range Of Human Trafficking Charges

Our lawyers have had success defending clients facing a wide range of charges in relation to human trafficking, including:

Handling Immigration and Criminal Issues

When an immigrant or refugee provides false information on his or her application, it can lead to inadmissibility to enter or remain in Canada, fines or imprisonment under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act. Additionally, a conviction for human trafficking under the Criminal Code can result in 14 years to life in prison.

In addition to handling cases involving deportation, we also assist clients who are facing extradition for a crime committed in another country or a crime committed in Canada that affects individuals in a foreign country. Extradition cases are highly technical in nature and require the skill of an experienced extradition lawyer. Our lawyers have the knowledge and experience necessary to build a strong defence against extradition, deportation and other criminal charges you may face as a result of human trafficking allegations.
