If you have been charged with a crime in Eastern Ontario, including Ottawa, Brockville, Cornwall, Kingston, L’Orignal, Pembroke, Arnprior, Perth, Smiths Falls, Alexandria, or Morrisburg, it is always in your best interest to hire an experienced criminal lawyer who can protect your rights and increase the odds of winning your case.


An experienced criminal lawyer can help protect your rights, inform you about the strengths and weaknesses of the case against you, and ensure that you have the strongest defence available.

Don't face criminal charges alone. Contact Stevenson Criminal Law today to see what Ottawa criminal lawyer James Stevenson can do for you.


I am passionate about criminal law, and about representing my clients to the best of my ability.

My work has exposed me to a wide range of clients and cases, from simple assaults, to relatively sophisticated drug trafficking operations, and long-running murder cases. What unites every accused person is the serious impact criminal charges can have on their lives, and the difference a good lawyer can make for them.

My clients benefit from my experience as both a Crown Prosecutor and as criminal defence counsel. This background allows me to assess each case from both sides of the law; to anticipate strategies the Crown is likely to use, what problems the Crown may have, and what criminal defence strategies will be most effective.

When your liberty, livelihood, and seemingly your whole life are threatened by criminal charges, you need someone who can calmly, confidently, and effectively protect your rights. Contact me for a free consultation, and let me show you how we can start mounting your defence today.
