Lakin Afolabi

Experienced Criminal Lawyer

Since becoming a lawyer, I have appeared before every level of Court in Ontario and tirelessly conducted hundreds of hearings on both mundane and obscure legal issues. I have fearlessly represented people charged with the most serious offences, including first degree and attempted murder.

I have heard juries say “not guilty” on more charges than I can remember. I have faced off against some of London’s best criminal lawyers and won.

I am able to provide legal advice in both official languages. I am tenacious and prepare for trial as if it is my own life that is at stake.

A Human Element to Criminal Law

Despite my skill and successes, my experience and knowledge, I know there is a great human element to criminal law. Being a criminal lawyer is not just about knowing the law, it is about knowing people. It is also about serving them. That is why my greatest value as a criminal lawyer is that I understand and care about people.

I have particular skill and knowledge in defending sexual assault and domestic violence cases. They form a bulk of my practice. I am very familiar with the local judges and prosecutors in London and regularly conduct matters with them.
In addition to London, Ontario, I have also acted as a criminal lawyer for clients charged throughout Southwestern Ontario including Windsor, Kitchener, and Toronto.
