R.S., Williams Lake (former client)

When I was charged with a crime I did not commit it was difficult to come to grips with the burden it placed on my reputation and career. I worked with Smith Law Group for 18 months to prepare my defence. In the process I noticed some character traits of Brad, Danielle and their team which made my defence a success; they showed awareness of my situation and their experience in criminal law was evident as we prepared to go to trial. They were able to distinguish the difference between emotion and fact, which in our criminal legal system is very important. There are very few criminal lawyers that could have achieved the same result—I credit the preparation efforts of the team. Brad was respectful of my available resources and carefully managed the time that the team spent on the case. I have a high level of respect for Smith Law Group, and I cannot thank them enough for the outcome.

Not guilty verdict for first degree murder charges

Monday, April 25, 2022 was a special day for our criminal law firm. That is the day that we were thrilled to receive a verdict of not guilty for both first degree murder charges against our client.

The trial took place in Vancouver in the height of the pandemic and stretched to more than 150 days in court. Throughout the trial, we worked to present the best defence for our client. At its conclusion, BC Supreme Court Justice Arne Silverman found our client and his co-accused not guilty.

Kamloops criminal lawyer Brad Smith, QC led the defence team, which included Danielle Ching McNamee, Frances Mahon, and Kirat Khosa.

We thank all of our team members—in and out of court—who worked hard to provide a strong defence against these most serious criminal charges.
