PRAGMATIC, UNRELENTING ADVOCACY

Located in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Representing clients in Montreal, Longueuil, Laval, Valleyfield, St. Jerome and surrounding areas.

NOBODY WANTS TO HIRE A LAWYER…

But when you need a lawyer, you want to hire a criminal lawyer who will leave no stone unturned and zealously advocate on your behalf. We are a Montreal-based boutique criminal law firm that approaches a criminal charge as a problem to be solved. We are unrelenting in our approach and will do everything in our power to help close this dark chapter in your life.

We understand that it’s not only a criminal conviction that’s life-altering; the mere act of being criminally charged can have devastating consequences. That is why we’re determined to do everything possible to minimize the consequences of a criminal accusation and help our clients avoid a criminal record. We’ll help navigate your foray into the criminal justice system from the first interaction with the police to the file’s resolution.

In most cases, a criminal matter can be resolved without trial. For instance, sometimes files can be resolved by getting the charges withdrawn, or by negotiating a sentence that helps our client avoid a criminal record. Of course, when a problem can’t be resolved via negotiation, we’re more than prepared to take the matter before a judge in the form of a contested sentencing hearing or even a trial on the merits.

Zalman Haouzi is a fantastic lawyer. His thorough research and attention to detail while preparing paper work to submit to the crown was excellent. He took initiative in ensuring I had the absolute highest chance of victory. Throughout the whole case he had my priorities first. He would go out of his way to increase my odds of obtaining a criminal discharge and he was in fact able to obtain it for me! A huge victory for both of us! He provided me quite reasonable rates for the 'over the top' service he provided. He was always happy to answer my phone calls when I had a quick question, and would make himself available for meetings with me quite easily. All this to say Me. Zalman Haouzi is a fantastic lawyer that proved to be an awesome quarterback for me in my criminal case. He was able to fight for me and ultimately helped obtain the result of a criminal discharge giving me a second opportunity to live life without scrutiny of a criminal record. Many thanks to him and his team!

J'ai reçu un service impeccable de la part de Maitre S.Zalman Haouzi . Pour moi ce qui étais important étais d'avoir une personne qui me représentais et croyais à 100% en moi. C'est ce que j'ai ressenti tout au long de mon épreuve. Je me suis senti appuyé et surtout très bien conseiller puisque dans certaines situations il est facile de laisser monter la grogne et il a réussi a me calmer.

In 2023 had the privilege of being represented by Zalman, and I'd like to share my experience. Not only is he an outstanding lawyer, but he is also an extraordinary human being. Zalman possesses a unique blend of professionalism and genuine empathy that sets him apart, and underscores the best of what a legal professional can offer. Throughout my legal journey, he demonstrated unparalleled expertise, compassion, and attention to detail, ensuring that I was not only well-informed but also comfortable with each step of the process. The peace of mind he provided me with in what was a very emotionally trying experience is something I will forever be grateful for. I could not recommend him enough!

I strongly recommend Mr. Haouzi! When my case started last year, I did some searching and comparison. I felt that he was the best lawyer for me. And now, the result of the case has proven my thoughts. Mr Haouzi is a very professional and experienced lawyer. All steps of the process were organized very well. He gave me a lot of clear and useful advice, and helped me to prepare everything as well as possible. He is also a very kind man. His amazing communication helped me go through my case with less anxiety. I really appreciated his help. All good now.

He is probably the best lawyer in Quebec. My bf was in a terrible situation and Mr. Haouzi truly did his best to get us out. He helped us in many ways not just our legal matters. Being someone who used to get in trouble majority of my life I can truly say he is the best. I have never met a lawyer who truly does care for his clients and works really hard to get you the best outcome. I highly recommend him. He honestly saved us from a horrific situation he was worth every penny! also a huge thank to Michael for always informing and keeping us up to date. These to men are truly angels. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being so kind , caring and understanding ❤️❤️❤️

10-star service…. First and foremost, I feel like I owe all of you for sharing my experience working with M. Haouzi and his colleague M. Aarenau. Thanks to your positive Google reviews, I was reassured that I could take a leap of faith to assign Zalman to handle my files. I was accused of an assault where I acted in self-defense, unfortunately, I was not treated as a victim but a suspect instead. The police automatically blamed me as a suspect without pursuing any further investigation. Although I was innocent, at that point, I needed a great lawyer to help me fight the case and that's when I contacted M. Haouzi. He took the time and listened to my side of the story and he believed that I was telling the truth. Therefore, he was compassionate and reassured me that he would help me get justice. Zalman kept his word, he and his colleague Micheal worked excessively hard on my file, They wrote a representation to build a profile and searched for evidence to back up my story. Based on their tireless efforts and the evidence they presented to the court during negotiations, the prosecutor decided to drop all charges against me and the case was entirely dismissed. I am forever grateful to Zalman and Micheal for taking my case and solving it in the best way possible which led to a far greater outcome than I could anticipated, I couldn't be happier. I highly recommend M. Haouzi and M. Aarenau and encourage anyone who gets wrongly accused in any situation, to not hesitate to reach out to Zalman and Micheal. They are by far one of the best attorney firms in the city, they're trustworthy, professional, compassionate, dedicated, and hardworking individuals. I have been thrilled with the great results and I haven't been disappointed ever since.
