About Darwin R. Witmer Criminal Law
At Darwin R. Witmer Criminal Law, I believe in every client’s right to the best criminal defence possible.
Criminal law is all I practice. Every client at my office is treated as an individual with unique needs and unique circumstances.
I am in court every day, and have excellent working relationships with the judges and prosecutors who work there. I use these working relationships for the benefit of my clients, advocating on their behalf and explaining their position effectively.
I am also very involved in my local legal community. I am the current chair and chosen representative of the Criminal Practitioners of Waterloo Region, regularly attending courthouse meetings with judges and Justices of the Peace to discuss issues of concern to defence lawyers. We organize meetings and seminars for our local defence lawyers, working as a group to better influence how cases proceed through the system with the best interests of our clients in mind.
Born and raised in Kitchener, and having raised three children there, I am familiar with the people of the Kitchener-Waterloo region and the needs and priorities of my community.
I also understand that for many of my clients, finances are a concern. My office offers free consultations, charges reasonable fees, and accepts Legal Aid. We also accept email money transfers.
