In 2011, I found myself facing four serious charges. After conferring with a number of candidates to represent me, I knew that Brian Starkman was THE BEST MAN FOR THE JOB. It took 18 months for my matter to go to trial and Brian’s efforts were always on point. Going through an ordeal of this nature is traumatizing, however, I knew that I was in good hands and my utmost confidence in his capabilities was well rewarded. At trial he quickly decimated the Crowns offerings. What was to be a two day trial was over by lunch the first day. His knowledge of the law, his deft application of courtroom skills and his attention to the details of my case were masterfully executed on this thankful clients behalf. The charges were withdrawn. Furthermore, I thoroughly enjoyed witnessing his talents at work. It is a fine thing to watch a true professional at the pinnacle of his calling and BRIAN STARKMAN IS THAT MAN!! He has represented me admirably on two separate occasions. He is THE BEST!!
I am a professional who was charged with over 80. It was the most terrifying experience of my life because I had so much to lose by being charged with a criminal offence. I contacted Brian and he put me at ease during our first meeting by thoroughly going over my case without giving me any false sense of hope. Over the months he represented me, he and his staff thoroughly took care of me by knowing my case inside and out and planning a strong defence. His delivery in the courtroom was confident and carefully planned. He argues your case with ease due to his experience and preparedness. Ultimately my case was dismissed all because of Brian. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone and I cannot thank him enough.
Brian is an excellent attorney. I was charged with over 80 and Brian was honest and upfront with me the whole way through the experience. Honestly if you need a criminal defense attorney for anything Brian is your guy. He walks into the courtroom prepared and is able to react to any new information instantaneously, leaving the crown stumbling after themselves. Brian’s communication leading up to the trial had me worried, as this was my first experience with any court proceedings at all, but those fears were alleviated quickly once I saw him work in the courtroom. And in all honesty he wasn’t there to hold my hand he was there to win my case, which he did. My case was dismissed. Brian is the only criminal attorney I would contact if I ever needed help again in the future and I HIGHLY recommend him.
I hired Brian Starkman because a friend of mine had a similar case to mine to which Brian had got him out of. The charges against me included “DUI” and “Flight From Police”. Brian Starkman handled my case with professionalism and great knowledge. In the courtroom Brian had the Crown Attorney’s case in a tailspin, which he called a train wreck. After a short period of time the Crown came to Brian to offer him a deal to which got me out of both criminal offences. Brian Starkman is a great lawyer who knows his stuff and is very professional. Just relax let Brian Starkman “drive the bus!”
I was referred to Brian Starkman by the owner of a large trucking company who informed that Brian has successfully defended 3 truck drivers. Brian Starkman is an outstanding lawyer. The charges against me for operating a vessel (boat) while impaired where thrown out on not one but two different points. The amount of research and work he put into my case was astounding. To me it seemed the Judge was even impressed with his presentation. I thought I knew the best approach for my defense but Brian really knows his business and the crown didn’t have a chance against him. I thought his fees were high at first but when you consider the cost of a conviction and the ongoing expenses he is absolutely worth the investment. When the charges against me were dismissed it felt like he gave me my life back.I would suggest to anyone facing impaired driving charges to use Brian Starkman.

My name is Steve and I am beyond thankful for Brianâ€™s help, guidance and assistance when it came to my case. I was charged with over 80 and my career and life would have been greatly affected by a guilty verdict. I did not think that there was much hope before I met with Brian.. Brian was up front and honest with me, never giving me any false hope but letting me know that we did have a chance. In the end, as a result of Brianâ€™s professionalism, hard work and knowledge of the court procedures, my over 80 was dropped to a careless driving charge (from a Criminal charge to a Highway Traffic charge). I cannot thank Brian enough for saving my job, my career and for giving me second chance. I was given a second chance because of Brian and I would highly recommend him to anyone that finds themselves in a similar situation.
Today I won my Over 80 charge in the Grenville Court in Brampton. This was all possible due to Brian’s extensive experience and his confidence in the courtroom. I honestly had given up hope after hearing the story of other people with DUI’s. I still cannot believe that all the charges against me were dismissed. He’s given me a second chance in life and I could not be happier. If anyone has been charged with a DUI, I strongly suggest you give Brian a call. He was always prepared for each of the court appearances. He really knows what he’s doing. Thank you so much again Brian Starkman. God Bless.

Hello just to start off, I am not working for Mr.Starkman, I am not his secretary, nor his assistant.I am a regular blue collar Joe, with a 9 to 5 job who slugs it out each day in the heat and the cold, and works hard for each and every dollar. My case was one that I wasn’t sure he was going to win. I doubted him, not initially, but the more I looked into it the less encouraged I became. The day I met Brian he knew this and told me, “Relax ,let me drive the bus” and within minutes of reading my disclosure he knew we had a winner. I was charged with care and control and over 80, it looked very bleak and it was very confusing to say the least.Brian won the case with hard work and with a different view than I would have ever thought. How clever of him. That my friends only comes with experience. One lawyer, I met at the trial actually told me I had chosen the best. If I had 5 thumbs they would be all up for this man. He is a bit of a grump, but means well in his heart. Thank you Brian.
Brian represented me on my over 80 dollar charge. I was very fortunate to have a dedicated, confident and knowledgable lawyer. Brian’s cross examination of the crown’s witnesses and closing statement was outstanding, as a result of his expertise I was found not guilty. I would highly recommend Brian. Thanks again.

Mr. Starkman is a really great guy that fought hard to have my impaired charge dropped. He did not stop at the word of the police offices, who was obviously not divulging the entire episode as it actually happened. He pressed on until all records and videos of my arrest were presented and the Judge saw that what was reported and the actual events were not the same. The charge was then dropped. I am VERY relieved at the conclusion and am convinced that it was due to the professionalism of Brian Starkman.

Extremely experienced and very comfortable to talk to. I had a very good experience in how they dealt with my case.

I just had a very positive experience with Brian Starkman regarding my over 80 charge from three years ago. Brian worked xtremely hard to win the case and went to the wall with every reasonable argument that he could in my defense. Brian even pushed the case waiting for an important decision from the Supreme Court of Canada. Brianâ€™s perseverance, research, knowledge and respect for the judicial system did well for my case and I am forever grateful that he was able to win the case as it was a difficult situation. Thank you Brian for all you have done and for anyone who is looking for a hardworking, trustworthy lawyer I would recommend you put your trust in Brian. Respectfully Jeremy L.
Sometimes bad things happen to good people and you don’t want to plead guilty before you talk to an expert. Mr. Starkman and his team were very helpful, knowledgeable, and never gave up on me. He was informative and of course he is one of the best out there specially in DUI cases. He helped me and one of my friends (in case of my friend, it was a different matter than DUI) and saved us from getting wrongfully accused. I would highly recommend him and his team to anyone.
