Criminal Theft Law in Toronto, ON
Defence Lawyer for Aggravated Robbery
If you have been charged with robbery, the consequences could be severe. Depending on the aggravating or mitigating circumstances of the individual offence, a conviction could include substantial time in the penitentiary. However, The Law Office Of T. Daniel Kirby has the extensive experience and familiarity with the Criminal Code to provide a strong defence. Robbery cases are complex, and with a skilled aggravated robbery lawyer in Toronto, ON, your case receives the thorough attention necessary for a more favourable outcome in the courtroom.
The Criminal Code defines robbery as the stealing of an item with the use or threat of violent force. Since robbery, unlike theft, involves the real or perceived threat of direct physical harm, it carries a maximum sentence of life imprisonment. In cases where a firearm is used, a conviction carries a minimum sentence of imprisonment for four years. Generally, a robbery occurs when:
- An individual steals by using or threatening to use violence against another person.
- An individual steals and afterward strikes or injures the other person.
- An individual assaults another with the intention of stealing from that person.
- An individual steals while armed with a weapon or imitation of a weapon.

Acquitted, not guilty, charges dismissed.
This was the best possible outcome for my case. Believe me, now that this matter has been resolved, it has helped turn my fortunes around one hundred and eighty degrees toward the better. Mr. Daniel Kirby did a phenomenal job representing me on my assault charges. He used his expertise and experience to navigate through the entire process and adapted his strategy according to the requirements of the situation as the proceedings moved forward. Throughout the process, Mr. Kirby very clearly explained to me the upcoming steps and answered my questions in order for me to make very difficult but informed decisions. Mr. Kirby presented possible options and detailed the range of possible outcomes, and these are often very difficult to hear. But he also offered suggestions and recommendations based on his experience that helped me evaluate my situation and focus on the important points and decisions. I cannot thank Mr. Kirby enough. I could not have asked for more, or a better outcome in this matter. Mr. Kirby immediately started the process to expunge my records. I have already received a letter from the police service confirming that the process of my expungement has begun. My record will soon be clear thanks to Mr. Kirby. Mr. Kirby was continuously focused on my case, and only spoke to me when the situation what’s relevant, keeping costs down. I strongly recommend you get in touch with Mr. Kirby if you need a criminal defence lawyer.
You Get what You Pay For...and MORE
If you are ever in a situation where you require a criminal lawyer, T. Daniel Kirby is the one for you. Given his multiple years of experience both as defense lawyer and former prosecutor, Mr. Kirby’s reputation and credibility precedes him with the police, Judges and Crown Attorneys. This allows him leverage to get the best possible outcome in the defense of his client. Two and a half years ago our world turned upside down due to some serious trouble with our son. We found Dan Kirby by chance and wow, how the universe was on our side that day. He acted professionally, with great compassion and patience throughout the entire process. Though the legal system/process is a long one, the outcome for our son was, as we have been told a “kiss on the cheek”. Mr. Kirby succeeded in immediately getting him bail - when none of the other co-accused were able to get it - and his final sentence was less than half of what it could have been and kept him out of the Federal penitentiary. Mr. Kirby delivered on what he said he would, right from the start. We can’t change the events of the past and our son has a long road ahead of him but with Mr. Kirby’s help, we were at least able to assist our son to get started on the road to becoming a good standing member of society - like he was raised to be. Would we ever use Dan Kirby’s services again? Well, hopefully we will NEVER EVER have to! But if we did we most certainly would!!!
My family and I would like to thank Dan for the incredible job he have done. My little brother was facing a charge of first degree murder and was going to spend some time in the penitentiary. Thanks to Dan's effort, diligence and hard work my brother doesn't have to go to jail anymore. He is now spending time at a treatment facility where he can focus on his recovery from a mental illness known as schizophrenia. Dan was able to make all of this possible for my family, and I hope that he can do the same for anyone else looking to seek legal representation. Thanks Dan!!
Highly Recommend Mr. Kirby
From the moment I entered Mr. Kirby's office, I knew I made the right choice. He was professional and handled my particular case with an empathetic approach. He made me feel as though my case was as important to him as it was to me and was genuinely vested in my case. More importantly, he worked diligently to get the deserving outcome that saved my career. I couldn’t be more thankful.
I feel very confident in this recommendation.
Mr. Kirby represented my son, who was charged with assault causing bodily harm following an incident in a restaurant. At first glance video footage showed my son grabbing a person, putting him into a headlock and crashing to the floor. During the trial, Mr. Kirby, with the help of a private investigator, tracked down witnesses, spent countless hours researching previous cases and dissected the video in painstaking detail. After a 31/2 day trial, the court found that my son acted in self defense and was acquitted of all charges. Without Mr. Kirby's attention to the details and genuine belief in the merits of our defense, my son would surely have been unjustly convicted. I would highly recommend Mr. Kirby as a extremely competent and more important, caring attorney who will work tirelessly for his clients.
I've been charged not once, not twice, but three times with drug related offences. In every case, Dan Kirby got me an acquittal. In the last two cases the Crown Attorney was looking to send me to the penitentiary. I don't entirely understand how he did it but he understands the Charter of Rights and insisted the police obey it. What else can I say?
All round professional
When the day seems it's darkest, your head keeps spinning with terrible thoughts and you feel worse than ever because something out of the ordinary has just happened in your life - give Dan Kirby a call. For many, being accused of a crime by the police can be a very traumatic experience. Having time to meet with a legal representative and explain the circumstances can be a calming exercise if the representative is someone like Mr. Kirby. I found him to be a good listener - very calm but a take charge type of character. After meeting with him and explaining my side of the story, I felt as if all my problems were under control. A game plan was initiated, time lines established and I was able to return home and go back to work. Everything would be dealt with and I would be informed when I was required next. I am very happy to say that when I next met Mr. Kirby at the Courthouse " justice prevailed" and I walked away very happy indeed. Dan Kirby provided a wealth of knowledge and experience to guide my case to a favourable outcome. Throughout the entire ordeal he provided the comfort and assurance that a nervous client needed. I have no hesitation in recommending Mr. Kirby.
I Needed a Good Attorney - 5 plus stars!
I’m very grateful for the work that Mr. Kirby did for me. I was facing a serious criminal charge and I needed a good attorney. He was focused and didn’t waste time unnecessarily. I felt like he was very connected with the legal system and was able to get fast results. He was more expensive than some but I think he was worth it. I think it was his depth of experience and personal strength of character that got the prosecution to agree. My charges were dropped after about two months.
A Consumate Professional
I have known and been associated with Dan Kirby for almost 30 years. These experiences come from different avenues. Firstly, as a former Crown when I was a police detective. Secondly, as a defence lawyer while I was a Homicide investigator and currently in my new role as a Private Investigator when I've been retained by Mr. Kirby. I have always admired the respect he receives from the police, Crown Counsel and the Judiciary. He makes every effort to resolve matters before trial and is dogged in his defence of clients at trial. I can attest from personal observation, that Mr. Kirby puts the interests of the client first and that he is always fully prepared for trial. It is difficult for a client to put all of their trust in their lawyer, however I can state unequivocally, that the trust he receives is well earned.
A Trusted Lawyer
Dan Kirby is among the best in his field. He has a breath of experience, a wealth of knowledge and a demeanor that in an emotional situation helps to calm and reassure. He has the ability to analyze the issues and provide viable options that are well thought out and presented. He is liked among his peers - that in and of itself is a testimony to his affable personality and professionalism. I highly recommend Dan.
I couldn't have made a better choice for representation
Daniel Kirby handled my case with such sincere care. He gave me his full attention and worked to achieve no less than the best possible results. His compassion and personal investment in the success of my case was an invaluable comfort. Daniel's confidence and expertise made me feel like I couldn't have been in better hands. I definitely could not have made a better choice for legal representation than Daniel. Thank you, Dan!
Mr. Kirby's strong and educated dealings with the Crown Attorneys in a recent proceeding resulted in all Criminal Code charges being dropped. He knew when, and with whom, which approach would bring the most desirable result. I could not have hoped for a better outcome. Thanks.
Dan is fabulous. He listens to his clients situation and needs and acts in a professional. He gets the job done!
