CALL ME NOW: (905) 452-1833


I always knew I wanted to be a lawyer. I chose my profession from an early age and took matters into my own hands to make sure my dream came to fruition. But I didn’t always know what kind of lawyer I wanted to be. On the contrary, the focus of my legal career chose me.

I now know how lucky I am…

When you told me we were facing the toughest judge in Ontario, I was worried. But when I saw all the other lawyers congratulate you, I felt like I picked the right guy.

-J. Delerique, Toronto

Graduated 1989 Osgoode Hall Law School and practiced criminal law in Ontario for over 25 years.

I have defended hundreds of clients charged with impaired driving, assault, theft, fraud, and drug offences.


Jonathan Lapid, Criminal Defence Lawyer and DUI Expert

I’ve been a practicing Brampton criminal defence lawyer for over 25 years. Throughout my career, while I do defend a wide range of charges, my primary focus has been DUIs and impaired driving. With hundreds of successfully won cases, solid relationships with Crowns and Judges, and an open-door policy with other defence lawyers who regularly ask for my help, I’ve come to be known as an expert in the field. A few years ago, a police officer hired me to defend his case after he was charged with a DUI. When I asked him how he found me, he said, “I asked my police friends who they lose to in court and they all said Jonathan Lapid, so here I am.”

What else you need to know

  • I am one of the top five lawyers in the industry
  • I have successfully won hundreds of cases related to impaired driving and DUI’s
  • I have several reported cases now used by other lawyers as precedent
  • I was interviewed for the 2016 March Issue of Maclean’s Magazine
  • I appeared on Global News to comment on the impaired driving case of former Toronto Maple Leafs Captain, Rob Ramage
  • I was a guest lawyer for a radio show in Anaheim California

Thorough, determined and compassionate

If there is anything my experience has taught me, it’s that you can never be too prepared. For every case I defend, I dive in wholeheartedly – searching, learning, examining and evaluating the details. I work every angle of your case to make sure the outcome is a successful one. And all the while, I never forget how difficult and stressful this situation is on you. That’s why I make it unquestionably clear that I am on your side throughout the legal process. Even when emotions run high, I help you work through issues rationally and calmly, and I am open and honest about your options.

Who I serve:

My clients come from all walks of life. From the everyday person who made a single foolish mistake, right through to the well known athlete or police officer who desperately needs to protect their reputation, I am a Brampton lawyer who fights every case to the end. Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to defend:

  • High profile business executives
  • Professional athletes including NHL’ers and gold medal Olympians
  • Police officers
  • Lawyers
  • Doctors
  • Pilots and flight attendants
  • Limousine drivers
  • Factory workers

People say I’m NOT your stereotypical lawyer

My clients tell me I simply don’t fit the bill when it comes to what they thought about lawyers or the kinds of experiences they’ve had with lawyers in the past. I’m told that I have a very friendly and understanding demeanour. Within minutes, I have a way of letting my clients know that a) it’s going to be okay, and b) they can talk to me openly with complete confidentiality. Pick up the phone and give me a quick call – find out if you agree.

Why choose me?

When you hire me to defend your DUI charge, I am a Brampton DUI lawyer who fully invests himself in your case and its outcome. There with you every step of the way, I explain the entire process as we go along and my office attends all court appearances on your behalf so you can live your life and be where you need to be. I pay attention to every nitty gritty detail and no page goes unturned. My experience gives me the ability to examine your case and know what’s important and what isn’t. Listening closely to your personal needs and concerns, I develop a specific course of action that takes your individual lifestyle requirements into account. I craft your defence using factors that I know will hold up in court and ultimately lead to a winning outcome.
