The Ottawa law firm of Addelman Baum Gilbert was formed in January 2010 by its four founding partners, Richard Addelman, Douglas Baum, Jason Gilbert and Joseph Addelman. At the time of the partnership's formation, each was already an experienced and seasoned criminal defence lawyer.
Addelman Baum Gilbert is at the forefront of the Ottawa and Eastern Ontario legal communities, offering legal services in all areas of criminal defence and child protection proceedings. The firm offers services in English, French and Farsi.
The firm’s lawyers represent clients facing all criminal charges, ranging from homicides and firearms offences, to domestic violence, sexual offences, drinking and driving cases, narcotics offences and complex constitutional litigation. Other common criminal offences are robbery, assault, theft and fraud. The lawyers also represent clients charged with provincial offences such as Highway Traffic Act matters and all forms of regulatory offences.
Addelman Baum Gilbert has a keen understanding of how legal practice areas often intersect. Two of its lawyers have combined criminal defence and child protection practices. In addition to all aspects of criminal law, they represent parents involved in legal proceedings against the Children's Aid Society of Ottawa (C.A.S.), and other provincial child welfare agencies. If you are a parent whose children have been apprehended, and are at the responding end of a protection application or status review proceeding, you can look to Addelman Baum Gilbert for the kind of patience, experience and attention you will need and want from a lawyer when litigating a case against a child welfare agency.
Addelman Baum Gilbert appreciates that law enforcement and child welfare agencies work around the clock. This Ottawa firm's defence lawyers do too, and they are looking out for you. The lawyers can be reached 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
