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.
OUR PHILOSOPHY - A CLIENT-CENTERED APPROACH
Our philosophy is simple: advocate for our clients in the exact same way that we would want someone to advocate for us. We put ourselves in your shoes and believe, first and foremost, in compassionate pragmatism. To us, you are not just a number and we will think outside of the box to find the solution that’s best for you.
We pride ourselves on our individualized, client-centered approach. We recognize that no two cases (and no two clients) are the same, and as such, we take the necessary time to meet our clients in order to explore every possible option and craft effective strategies that are specifically tailored to your individual needs. We will leave no stone unturned and will only provide realistic solutions that have a genuine chance at success.
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.
