  • R. v. Y.

    I would like to thank Jacob Jesin (“Jake”) of Rotenberg Shidlowski Jesin for being an outstanding lawyer. Always responsive and reachable, Jake helped me immensely throughout this high-stress, high-conflict situation. Jake was reassuring, knowledgeable, and confident and after our first conversation I was able to regain a sense of calm. A true professional, Jake was always on time, organized, and in communication. I always felt well informed and had a good understanding of the next steps. Jake managed my expectations well and demonstrated confidence, leadership, and expertise in his field. Jake helped me stay positive and his level of support was unwavering. Jake is exceptional and I am deeply grateful to have had him as my legal counsel to navigate the court system. I could not be happier with the outcome of the case. I have utmost confidence in Jake and I give my highest recommendation to Rotenberg Shidlowski Jesin.

    About the case:

    Y was a professional charged with domestic assault. As a result of the charges, Y’s license to practice was in jeopardy.

    When my family and I needed lawyers we called upon RSJ law firm. Robert, Alvin and Jacob treated us as family not clients. They helped us in the most crucial times.

    My life took a sudden and drastic turn when I was falsely charged with sexual assault. It was a traumatic and highly stressful time for me and my family, as the daunting task of having to enter the criminal court system was overwhelming. It was at this time, that my lawyers from Rotenberg Shidlowski Jesin stepped in to both put together my case and provide me and my family with the necessary personal support. They were strategic, organized and very efficient as they navigated my case through the court system, explaining the process along the way and comforting me during some stressful moments. When it was all said and done, they had proven my innocence, the charges were withdrawn and they had shown a deep concern for my well-being the entire time.

    About the case:

    Client was charged with this offence against his young child in the midst of an acrimonious custody battle with his ex-spouse. Together we worked as a team with his family lawyers. We studied the evidence and gathered independent information that convinced the Crown Attorney that the allegations were false, and were being used as a weapon in the custody dispute. The Crown ended the prosecution of the client and he is now happily reunited with his child.

  • R. v. W.

    My lawyer always kept me fully informed of my legal situation and gave me a clear understanding of the implications of various legal approaches. I received excellent support from him at every stage and my outcome speaks for itself - all five charges withdrawn.

    About the case:

    Mr. W. was charged with assaulting his spouse and then assaulting the police officer who came to arrest him. We interviewed other witnesses to the incident who were able to provide evidence that the spouse had suffered a mental breakdown at the time. We were able to show that our client had not assaulted her and that the complainant had likely hallucinated the event. In addition, after our detailed review of the police notes, we discovered that the arresting officer had falsely alleged in his notes that Mr. W. had assaulted him, while at the same time suppressing the notes of the junior officer who was present at the time and did not concur with the assault. The charges were withdrawn after the presentation of this overwhelming evidence to the Crown Attorney.
