Located in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Serving Montreal, Longueuil, Laval, and the surrounding Areas
Our Philosophy: A Client-centred Approach
We firmly believe in providing legal services that are tailored to our clients’ unique lifestyles and objectives. We do not believe in going to trial for every charge and fighting in the name of principle. We understand that there are usually multiple ways to resolve a file in a satisfactory manner. The direction that we propose and eventually adopt will almost certainly be the direction that makes the most sense for our clients. We view the law as a means to an end, and do everything in our power to reach the best outcome possible.
We take great pride in the strong relationships we build with our clients, and view the lawyer-client relationship as collaborative. We greatly look forward to serving clients who are just as motivated as we are to work on their case, and clients can expect to work alongside us on crucial aspects of their case (especially if the objective is resolving the file through negotiation).
About S. Zalman Haouzi Avocat - Who We Are And What We Do
S. Zalman Haouzi is a Montreal criminal lawyer that services Montreal, Laval, Longueuil, and the surrounding areas. Since 2011, we has proudly represented clients facing serious criminal charges, like sexual assault, domestic violence, drunk and driving, fraud, drug trafficking, and much more.
We primarily work with clients who are facing the criminal justice system for the first time and who, due to their circumstances, must avoid a criminal record, such as: members of a professional order, students, and young professionals who have their entire future ahead of them and immigrants with a precarious immigration status such as: permanent residents, individuals on work visas or study permits, and refugees.
What Sets Us Apart - Our Focus On Collaboration
We pride ourselves on our collaborative legal approach which involves working alongside some of Montreal’s best lawyers (family lawyers, immigration lawyers, and even other criminal lawyers) when a case is multi-faceted and outside expertise is required. We recognize that each case is unique, and that two heads are better than one, which is why we often take a collaborative approach to our criminal cases.
This collaborative approach takes place internally as well. Once a mandate is confirmed, we sit down with members of our team and collectively begin working on the next steps. Our lawyers will join forces to find creative, tailor-made solutions and tackle your case as a team, with each member contributing based on the unique skill set that they bring to the table. Of course, this collaborative approach also includes extremely close collaboration with the person most affected by the outcome: the client.
