Gary Batasar, Brampton, ON, Canada


I am committed to defending my clients in the best way possible. During my 25+ years throughout the GTA and primarily at the Brampton Courthouse, first, as a student and then as a lawyer, I have earned many beneficial and respectful contacts with Judges, Crown Attorneys, and Police Officers in Peel.

Over the years, I have used these positive relationships to help defend my clients while always keeping in mind their best interests.

Although it is an adversarial system, I do not believe in the need to needlessly disagree and be offensive in the process towards the Prosecution or the Police; I find that if everybody is treated with respect the best results are accomplished for my clients; and after all that is the goal.

Statistics have shown that over 90% of criminal cases are resolved without going to trial, with that being said, I do not believe in charging my clients trial fees for cases that I believe can be resolved via a withdrawal, a peace bond, or a position that is non-custodial, ultimately sparing the client jail time, saving their livelihood, and their family from the arduous process that is criminal law.

I find that a good rapport with everyone from the cleaning staff, the Court, the Crown staff and Clerks to the Judges, is not only appropriate but makes for good and practical business relationships.

You are an excellent lawyer. Your expertise as a lawyer- outstanding and highly professional. I thank you for everything you done for me and my mother. B.H.-
I used to deal with another lawyer prior to coming to Mr. Batasar’s office. My other lawyer did not have an office and I always had to meet him at a coffee shop or the courthouse. I also was never able to contact my previous lawyer as my calls would always be forwarded to his voicemail. After coming to Mr. Batasar, i now question why I hadn’t made the decision to switch sooner. If Mr. Batasar was unavailable to speak with, his assistant was well versed and was able to provide an update on my case. There was always somebody available to take my call and assist with any questions I had regarding my case. Due to my work schedule I was not always able to contact the office during normal business hours. I was able to contact directly with Mr. Batasar after hours and on weekends via email and telephone. If i ever had to drop paperwork off to his office and was unable to attend prior to closing, his assistant was always willing and able to stay after closing to accommodate my schedule. N.M.-
My brother was charged on a Friday night with assault and was being held for a bail hearing the following morning. Given that it was the weekend, I did not expect to get a hold of a lawyer until the following week. However, this was not the case with Mr. Batasar. I was able to contact Mr. Batasar Saturday morning and have him attend my brother’s bail hearing the same day. Mr. Batasar was able to have my brother released and because of his assistance, my brother did not have to remain in custody for the rest of the weekend. S.S.-
I was charged in connection with several break and enters. Due to my current situation, I was unable to retain Mr. Batasar privately and approached his office with a Legal Aid certificate. I was warmly greeted and my Legal Aid was accepted. Prior to attending Mr. Batasar’s office, I contacted other lawyers with my Legal Aid certificate; however they all advised me that they did not have the time to spend on my matter unless I paid them privately. I was not treated like a “criminal” and felt very comfortable speaking to Gary about the circumstances surrounding my case. C.H.-
Informative, knowledgeable, honest and efficient are only some characteristics I would use to describe Mr. Batasar and his staff when dealing with my case. I was charged with sexual- related offences and as you can imagine, this was a very stressful time for not only me but my family as well. Mr. Batasar was able to clearly explain the step by step process that he would be engaging in throughout the course of my case. He was able to put me at ease and I felt comfortable placing my future in his hands. This matter went all the way to trial at the Superior Court level. After trial, I was found not guilty on all charges. I cannot thank Mr. Batasar enough for what he has done. I would recommend Mr. Batasar to anyone without hesitation. R.H.-
I was referred to Mr. Batasar by a co-worker on the account that he was one of the best lawyer’s to deal with any criminal matter. This was the best decision I could have made. My employer requires yearly police checks and having a conviction would have jeopardized my employment. Mr. Batasar was able to have my drug trafficking charges withdrawn in a timely manner. It is because of him that I am currently still employed and able to support my wife and child. Thanks for everything Gary. K.G.-
