  • "We thank Mr. Karl Toews for his professionalism, caring, kind and thorough care in obtaining a reasonable result in the case.

  • "Our firm has used Kruse Law for a period of a couple of years to assist our corporate commercial clients who may have criminal or Provincial Offence matters. Mike and his staff have been extremely professional and have offered meaningful solutions to many of our clients who needed expertise in negotiating complicated settlements, plea bargains or representation in the Criminal Court system. I would refer Kruse Law to anyone in South-western Ontario who might need assistance in these particular fields. I know that Mike Kruse can take a criminal matter to trial or negotiate a practical settlement, when appropriate, as he has an excellent rapport and reputation with the various Crown Counsel in Ontario. Mike and the team of Lawyers and staff at Kruse law provide excellent service and representation to clients in need."
  • "A year ago I was arrested for a very serious criminal charge, with potential jail time. This had been my very first offense and it brought a great deal of stress for me and my family. I am in my final year of school, about to graduate, and this charge would have been the end for me. All my 5 years of school would have been to waste, not to mention the amount of money gone, had I have gone to jail. I had the opportunity to work with Michael Kruse on my case. He was very calm, relaxed, and he paid great attention to detail. He was able to prep me in two weeks for my case. He was very knowledgeable and he made it very clear to me how I should present myself in court. I pled not guilty and after an intense three day trial , I was found not guilty and avoided a lengthy jail term. Without the help of Mr. Kruse and his team, my life and career would have been over, but we managed to pull through. I am in forever debt to them and I can now look back at this experience and further persue my career."
  • "In March 2017, I got falsely accused and charged of a crime I did not commit by an ex-partner. It was the first time I’d ever been charged and I had a lot of uncertainty of what to do as I knew a conviction would change my life. My very first conversation was with Jodie who was awesome. She spent over 45 minutes on the phone with me providing me comfort, explaining the process, different possible paths through the court system, etc. At no point, did she try to sell the firm to me (in fact, she told me to shop around before making my decision). It was from that time I knew I was going to go with Kruse Law. Alec Fiszauf was assigned to my case and he was great. He had extensive experience in criminal law and it really showed as the case progressed. Right from the start, Alec believed my version of events and we knew we were going all the way to trial (at no point was a plea even suggested). Alec, Samantha, and Jennifer kept me up to date on the status of my case on a timely basis. They showed me nothing but respect from the very start and never doubted my innocence. Alec spent numerous hours in person with me going through all the disclosure, prepping me for examination and cross-examination, explaining the law, and answering any questions I had. Despite me repeatedly asking Alec what he thought of my chances, he never guaranteed anything and waited until all the complainant’s evidence and testimony came out in court (which, in hindsight, is what a good lawyer should do). Alec’s performance in court was great as he was able to ask the right questions of the complainant, while tight-roping around the complicated rules in law that exist in the area, and all the contradictions and lies came out. The judge rightfully picked up on; she spent 20 minutes of the 30 minute oral judgment listing out contradictions and implausibility of the complainant’s version of events. Lastly, Kruse Law has a number of experienced, seasoned lawyers (and former crowns). They know the system inside out, work together and don’t operate in silos. Throughout the process, Alec would bounce ideas off his colleagues and get their opinions on certain aspects of my case. When you hire Kruse Law, you have the firm behind you, not just one lawyer. You get what you pay for. I was very satisfied with the outcome and it was worth every dollar. I would highly recommend Kruse Law."

  • "I want to take this time to personally thank Mr. Michael Kruse and his staff for their expertise in dealing with my difficult situation. I did extensive research before choosing a lawyer and I can say honestly I chose the best. They were so pleasant and made me aware every step of the way from a legal standpoint of my options. I never felt pressured at any time, and the advice they gave was always in my best interest. They were so personable and relaxed that at times I forgot I was speaking to a lawyer. The service was exceptional, the advice was clear and precise, and the outcome was more positive than expected. I would 100% recommend this legal team. When you get yourself in a bind this team is the one you want. I can only say with gratitude – Thanks to Mike, Danielle, and the entire team you are awesome!"
  • "I approached Kruse law back in April of 2018. I explained my rather bleak situation to them and they quickly took action to defend my case. Obviously I had many questions and they certainly had all the answers. Their experienced lawyers thoroughly reviewed my case. This included many interviews with me and a “deep dive” into all the relevant police documentation. Alec Fiszauf, my assigned lawyer, indicated that I had a really good chance of winning my case in court… and that’s exactly what happened. Alec successfully defended my case with the Crown and all charges were withdrawn. Thank you Alec and all the amazing staff at Kruse Law!"
  • "From the very first phone call, I knew I had made the right choice. Mr. Kruze’s team were very friendly and supportive during a highly stressful time. Danielle and Jodie were extremely knowledgeable and helpful in explaining the steps and process of our case. When we first spoke with Mr. Kruze, he immediately made us feel at ease. He is an extremely warm person and we felt he truly cared about us. He was always there when we had questions and never hesitated to make sure we understood the entire process and details of our case. I could not be happier with the quick and efficient results he worked diligently to achieve for us. As a parent, I would highly recommend Mike Kruze for his excellent and professional representation in the youth justice criminal system."
  • "The team at Kruse law firm exceeded my expectations and helped me win a complex criminal law case. In particular, Alec did a fantastic job formulating strong arguments and seeing things from every possible angle. He was also very accommodating and was resourceful in finding evidence that others would have probably missed. Although this location is newer for them, Kruse’s lawyers have extensive experience practicing law and their expertise certainly shows. My lawyer in particular has been doing this for roughly 3 decades. The firm came highly recommended from a friend, and I’m very glad I went with them. If I have any future incidents, it will certainly be handled by Kruse law firm! If you want the best lawyer(s) on your side, look no further. Thank you again for everything!"
