I'd like to publicly state that I had the best experience with this firm. I have dealt with in excess of two hundred firms over three jurisdictions over several years for other matters but this firm is in a league of it's own. I was given realistic expectations and promised that the greatest attention to drafting and advocacy would be given to my case. Consequently, I got the best possible result and I owe it all to Sondhi Defence. I hold no reservation in recommending this firm be consulted before all other firms in Ontario.

Ankush was awesome as a counsel and supportive throughout the duration of the case like a friend as well. Fee were very reasonable and he is very accommodating with payment plans as well. See him for your case - you won't be disappointed.

If I could review a negative rating I would. You get what you pay for, I'd advise anyone reading this to compare him with any and all other law representatives you speak with.
I can't say enough good things about Mr. Sondhi and Larissa, they are absolutely amazing. My son got himself into some legal trouble for the first time and it was extremely stressful but the minute we spoke to Mr. Sondhi we felt a thousand times better. He's calm, professional and reassuring. He got us the best possible outcome beyond our expectations and in the future if I ever needed a lawyer I wouldn't hesitate to call him. Thank you again for everything over the last year!
Ankush and his team are the G.O.A.T.!! Stephen during my trial was amazing! I was falsely accused and charged with assault that comes with a 2yr jail sentence and these men got me acquitted of all my charges. I can't thank them enough for their hard work removing these charges so I can have a clean record so I can travel and see my daughter abroad. If you are stressed or have anxiety about your own case, give Ankush a call and trust me, he will deal with the business and get the results you desire!! Thank again Ankush and Stephen, I will definitely recommend you guy if I hear anyone in need.
