Calvin Barry Professional Corporation

Your Toronto Fraud Defence Lawyer

We Will Defend Your Fraud Allegations and Fight for Your Rights.

Calvin Barry and his team have successfully represented individuals charged with various types of fraud, and fraud related offences. Fraud is committed when one, by deceit, falsehood or other fraudulent means, defrauds the public or a person of any property, money, valuable security or any service.


If you are charged with a fraud related offence, do not plead guilty before you consult with one of our lawyers. Pleading guilty will result in a criminal conviction and the consequences of such a conviction may be highly prejudicial and expensive. Our firm will aggressively fight for your rights and raise every defence available to defend the allegations against you.
