Have you just been Charged with a Criminal Offence?
Sexual assault and Domestic assault charges are not prosecuted like typical criminal charges. Not all law firms focus on these charges. Some criminal defence lawyers refuse to represent people charged with these offences.
At Lakin Afolabi Law Professional corporation we have made these charges our focus. Our experienced Kitchener criminal lawyers will assist you with your case. We have defended thousands of charges throughout Ontario. We have an office located in the Kitchener Waterloo area we take on cases from the tri-cities and surrounding areas.

“Very pleased with the service I received from Lakin.
Had constant contact with him which made me feel much more confident with my defence. Was feeling very insecure heading into this whole process. I outlined to him what I needed regarding an outcome, and he more than surpassed my expectations.
Thank you for your hard work and dedication, Lakin. I will certainly recommend your services to anyone I know who finds themselves in a bind and really doesn’t know where to turn.

We listen to you to ensure that your unique needs are met and satisfied.
We Strategize with You
We look to what caused your situation and work to find flaws in the case against you. Our criminal lawyers are very familiar with the system and know how to prepare for every unexpected contingency.
We create case by case approaches which are based on our experience with the law and your knowledge of the facts.
We Defend You
This can mean probation or a conditional discharge instead of jail time, a partial or complete acquittal, or even achieving lesser charges (for example, only pleading to assault instead of sexual assault).
