We Fight Tenaciously To Protect Your Rights

The Knowledge, Expertise, and Experience to Win

“Mike Kruse and his team were wonderful in helping me through a difficult time. It was overwhelming and I had no knowledge of the law. Mike and his team provided me with legal advice and guidance. I was always being informed of where we were in the process and what actions needed to be taken. He was quick to respond to my calls or emails. Both Mike and his team were kind and professional. I was happy with the outcome of my case. I would recommend Mike for any criminal case. He is worth the investment and will get the best possible results.”

“Kruse Law were very helpful in dealing with my assault with a weapon case. After a lengthy abusive relationship it was difficult to be able to talk about my situation but Anthony Andreopoulos and the team at Kruse law were compassionate hearing my story and in the end with their extensive knowledge were able to successfully defend me in court against all charges. They were very prompt in responding to any questions and concerns I had throughout what was a lengthy and confusing process of going to trial. I believe that I would not have been able to do it if it wasn’t for Anthony and the Kruse Law team.”

“Highly recommended!!! Mike Kruse and his team put incredible efforts into my case which resulted in an exceptional outcome. I was informed and updated at all times and Mike always went the extra mile to answer my questions even beyond the actual case. I couldn’t be more thankful!”

“Mike Kruse was very professional. During COVID, he set up numerous phone meetings which kept us up to date with all the info. He never pressured me to make any decisions, he only gave his professional advice. Due to his hard work, he was able to achieve an outcome which I thought was very fair. I highly recommend Mike Kruse. Thank you Mike.”

“Thanks to Mike and his team for helping out my son. Mike is very professional, a great listener and open minded. I would definitely recommend Mike.”

Our Ontario Criminal Defence Lawyers Protect You Now and in the Future

An arrest is a traumatic experience. In a matter of minutes, you are torn from your everyday life, put in jail, and expected to prove your innocence in the criminal justice system. If you’ve never been charged with a crime or DUI before, you might even plead guilty just to put the whole thing behind you. Unfortunately, a failed defence could mean that your life will never go back to normal.

The Defence Lawyer You Choose Will Determine the Rest of Your Life

Many defendants don’t realize just how much is on the line after an arrest. In addition to the possibility of receiving jail time for any type of criminal offence and losing your driver’s licence for a DUI, a criminal record can mean the loss of your current job, future employment, and reputation. A lawyer who “dabbles” in criminal law isn’t enough—you need someone with a proven track record of defending these cases in court.

At Kruse Law, we understand the full ramifications of a criminal conviction—both now and in later life—and why it is so important to avoid them. Our experienced criminal lawyers across Ontario are waiting to protect your rights and stand by you every step of the way.
