Criminal lawyer Arun S. Maini is a former Crown Attorney. He knows the criminal justice system and what it takes to build a great defence. He seeks the best results through analysis, negotiations and litigation. The results speak for themselves: see this Testimonials page for some of our clients’ comments.
Everything you need in a lawyer and more is Arun Maini. He is not just a lawyer but a great person. He made me feel very comfortable and more secure with my case. Before choosing Mr. Maini I met with several Criminal Lawyers and I was most impressed with the service of Arun Maini at the Defence Group. I would highly recommend him to others. He was available 24/7 to answer any questions or concerns that I had.
I found Arun Maini through the Defencegroup.ca website. I had previously talked with two other lawyers. My first impression of Arun is that he is an experienced lawyer with a calm demeanor. He talked about his strategy and he assured me from our first meeting that we had a very good chance of winning my case. He believed that I was innocent from day one and is non-judgemental and committed in his approach. He had a strategy to combat the prosecution witness testimony. In each meeting he was prepared and confident that we would win this case. He dissected the prosecution witness and closed out the trial with a 1.5 hour long summation to the judge. I was found not guilty of all charges! I don’t understand some of the negative reviews posted here, because that is not the lawyer that worked with me over several months. After a hard fought trial we won and I would recommend Arun Maini to anyone!! He understands what you are going through and works with you every step of the way.
Facing criminal charges is an unimaginably stressful time for an individual and their family. Arun Maini was able to answer all my questions in a timely fashion, no matter how small. He made my family and I feel hopeful through the entire legal process. He was able to explain the process very well and was truly in my corner the entire time. Arun’s previous experience as a Crown Attorney provided him with the expertise that allowed him to see both positions of the case and anticipate our advantages and challenges. He understood my family’s financial limitations and tried wherever he could to speed up my case to avoid additional legal fees and court charges. I will be forever grateful for his help in my legal matter and I am confident in his abilities as a defence lawyer and would recommend him to anyone facing criminal charges.
I was not very satisfied with my former lawyer. I was looking for a new one. Mr. Maini was recommended to me by one of my colleagues at work. I was facing criminal charges of domestic assault causing bodily harm. Mr. Maini advised me to take specific legal steps to help the case. As a result Mr. Maini was able to negotiate with the Crown to reduce the charge to a simple assault. Mr. Maini managed to persuade the judge to grant me a discharge. From what I learned, in such situations, a discharge is almost never imposed. I was able to avoid the criminal conviction that would likely cost me my job. Thank you Mr. Maini!
I researched a number of lawyers online until I came across the Defence Group’s website. I read Arun’s background as a former Crown Attorney and decided to contact him. After our first phone conversation, I immediately knew he was an excellent lawyer and the perfect choice for my case. He answered all my questions, remained professional, and most importantly was not judgmental of my situation. He was extremely knowledgeable having dealt with a number of similar situations in the past. He was always reliable throughout the duration of the case. He made himself available via phone or email at any time, which gave me great peace of mind. Finally, he truly showed his incredible character as a caring lawyer when the case was finished. Arun remained right until the very end to make sure all ends were tied. Despite the time pressing very close to the prior engagement he had to attend, he remained with me to ensure everything was finished. I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend Arun.
I was charged with domestic assault and had been arrested and had no contact conditions. I felt an immense pressure to “just plead guilty” so that I could get back home. A friend of mine recommended Arun based on his similar circumstances…. I had interviewed another Lawyer and then Arun. Arun took a lot of time explaining and listening to my situation. He was very honest and told me exactly how things were going to happen. He never sugar coated it. The end result was exactly how he said it would be if I followed his advice. We had the charges withdrawn in a jurisdiction where they don’t usually do that. Arun is in my mind the best at what he does and is worth every penny.
Very patient and knowledgeable. Very professional. Would recommend his services.
Arun is professional, experienced, and quick thinking when it matters the most. When my personal situation appeared to be very grim (facing multiple domestic assault charges), Arun successfully navigated me out of it and thus enabled me to carry on with my life. In my opinion, he is one of the very best criminal defence lawyers in the country.
Arun is very professional and easy to work with. We had a recent issue with a family member and Arun was very clear from the beginning about what to expect in the legal process and what we needed to do for support (we were new to it!!). Throughout the process he was always giving us updates and explaining the situation going on in the court, which was much appreciated. Arun is efficient and effective at getting his job done. In our case, he fought right to the end and we had a really good outcome in a potentially bad situation. I have a lot of respect for Arun and would highly recommend him.
After my first phone conversation with Mr. Maini I instantly felt more calm about my situation. He prefers email correspondence and I’m more of a phone person, but he always made the time to speak with me if I asked him to call. He is knowledgeable, friendly and extremely professional. He was more than patient and willing to work out a payment plan. I thought my case was hopeless but he worked tirelessly to get me the best possible outcome. I never felt like my case meant any less to him because it was a more simple charge. I can’t thank him enough for giving me my life back. I would recommend him to anyone.
