I am always very careful and cautious about drinking with my friends when I know I have to drive home. Unfortunately, a few months ago, I chose to just have a small amount of drinks. I was very responsible and knew my limits. I was feeling well and chose to drive home. It was then that the police pulled me over and had me take a breathalyzer test. I was being charged with a DUI and I was very scared since this is my first encounter with the law. I called one of my trusted friends and they referred me to Jonathan Lapid. He set up a time to meet with me and prepare a plan for how he would help me in my legal troubles. After working the case, Jonathan had the charges dropped based on a constitutional error made by the prosecution. Thank you for your help Jonathan!read more

The professionalism, care, and assistance that Jonathan Lapid demonstrated is the reason why he is the best DUI lawyer in Toronto. I contacted lawyers before Jonathan and they all told me that there is no hope with my case. It all changed with Jonathan. We sat down to have a meeting and he outlined his clear plan of what to do with my case. He explained to me all of the possible outcomes that may arise from each situation. He was very patient with my case and didn’t rush to get me to plead guilty or settled. At the end, my charges were dropped. Yes, his fee is not the cheapest but he gets the job done and for that, I am very grateful. Thank you for Jonathan Lapid for your help in my case.read more

I was driving from downtown and I didn’t feel drunk, however I was stopped by the police and I did blow over 80. The next week I worried about everything, how can I save my license? My friend told me about Jonathan and I instantly called him. To be quite honest I was hesitant at first, however after seeing him in action my confidence was restored. He is a fantastic lawyer and I highly recommend him to anyone!read more

Jonathan simply saved me and my career. Do not get me wrong, I understand that DUI is a serious offence and you can easily impact others well-being by neglecting "don't drink and drive rule" but my job requires me to drink on the meetings to sign the client. That's how I make my living. I was charged with over 80 and Jonathan made it possible for me not to lose my licence. Yes, it was not the cheapest offer on the market, but I'd rather trust my case to the professional with 25+ years of experience then will fight for a couple of hundreds in savings. Strongly recommended.read more

I went through 5 different lawyers before making my decision on who was going to defend me, the last one I spoke with was Jonathan, he made me feel safe and re-assured me. He took his time and actually looked at my case before taking it. That was completely unique and something I didn't see from the other lawyers I met with, Jonathan was the right choice because he had the judge dismiss my DUI Charges. Jonathan, I cant thank you enough. If anyone wants a great lawyer who will do anything for you to win. Call Jonathan!read more

As a Firefighter who drove the truck each day, I would lose my job with a criminal record and a driving suspension. For me to just get a Highway Traffic Act conviction instead of an Over 80 conviction was a miracle. Jonathan Lapid had the Crown and Judge eating from his hands.
