His proven ability, wealth of experience, knowledge and reputation ensures that you receive the best representation and strongest defence possible in your case.

Skills Outside the Courtroom

As a former federal prosecutor who represented the crown in hundreds of judge alone and judge and jury trials, and before the Ontario Court of Appeal, Mr. Boni understands how investigators and prosecutors assess and prepare to marshal their cases. He knows how to engage and negotiate with them before and after you are charged. He understands that results are often achieved quietly and confidentially outside of the trial courtroom. Mr. Boni has helped individuals, corporations and professionals under investigation deal effectively and defensively with investigators. He has also helped many clients by persuading the prosecution to withdraw or stay their charges. Mr. Boni has developed a broad network of connections in forensic psychiatry, psychology, psychotherapy, medicine, and addictions treatment to help clients connect with the resources they need to overcome personal issues that may have contributed to their arrest in the first place. He also understands how to engage, instruct and work with private investigation firms to help solidify your defence. Adam Steven Boni, LL.B. provides effective, compassionate and understanding services to his clients that go well beyond achieving great results in the courtroom.

Skills in the Courtroom

Mr. Boni has extensive experience in conducting judge alone trials before the Ontario Court of Justice and jury trials in the Superior Court of Justice. He has a reputation for being a hard-hitting, hard-working trial lawyer who defends his clients - even the unpopular ones - with passion and integrity. His extensive judge and jury trial experience as a federal prosecutor, means that he understands and is able to anticipate and counter every move that the crown attorney will make in the courtroom before they make it. He is not afraid or hesitant to try any case, and he is not intimidated by any prosecutor. Mr. Boni also has significant appellate experience, which assists him in adopting a sound trial strategy for your case, so that the crown is unlikely to successfully appeal a verdict in your favour.

Mature, Professional Representation

Being charged with a criminal or disciplinary offence in a world dominated by social media and 24-hour news channels is an embarrassing, if not devastating personal experience. The last thing most people who are charged want is their lawyer on the evening news spreading the word about their criminal or disciplinary charges. Mr. Boni understands the need for discretion, and a mature and highly professional approach to your case. He understands your need for privacy and confidentiality. He has extensive experience in dealing with the news media, and knows when not, when to, and how to deal with the media in an effective and advantageous way for his clients. He has acted for licensed professionals and vulnerable persons in very sensitive, high profile cases. His approach is to get you through the criminal justice or professional regulation process in a way that will help you repair the damage done to your reputation and life down the road.

Case Studies

  • In D.L., Mr. Boni's client was alleged to be a kilogram-level cocaine trafficker. The crown sought a penitentiary sentence upon conviction. After reviewing Adam's legal factum which set out numerous constitutional violations backed up by the officers' cross-examinations by Adam at the preliminary hearing, the crown stayed all charges against the client on the eve of trial.
  • In D.E., Mr. Boni's elderly client was charged with numerous firearms offences after police executed a search warrant on a storage unit that was registered in the client's name, but used by the co-accused. At the conclusion of a multi-day preliminary hearing, during which Adam skilfully cross-examined several police witnesses, the client was discharged on all charges by the presiding Judge.
  • In J.D., Adam’s client, a mature professional, was charged with domestic assault as a result of a report by a bystander. His partner denied the assault to police, but she was disbelieved and he was charged anyway. Working with a private investigator, Mr. Boni was able to demonstrate to the crown how the bystander's report was based on an honest, but mistaken observation. The crown granted an exception to a no contact bail condition, and shortly thereafter withdrew the charge. The client was able to reunite with his partner, and repair the damage done to his reputation.
  • In L.C., Mr. Boni's client was alleged to be one of the ring leaders in a major kilogram level drug trafficking and importing operation. The crown sought a 15 year sentence upon conviction. After a hard fought jury trial Adam was successful in getting L.C. acquitted of all charges.
  • In B.J., Mr. Boni's client was charged with Second Degree Murder and alleged to have been involved in a shooting death of a young man in downtown Toronto. He faced life in prison. After a month long jury trial, B.J. was found not guilty by the Jury. The crown appealed the acquittal of Adam's client to the Ontario Court of Appeal. The Court of Appeal dismissed the crown's appeal and upheld the acquittal.
  • In J.C., Adam’s client, a licensed professional, was charged with drug offences, domestic assault, and breaching court orders. Mr. Boni worked quietly and effectively behind the scenes which resulted in the drug charges being withdrawn by the federal crown attorney. The assault charge was brought to trial and stayed by the provincial crown attorney on the morning of trial after being confronted with defence evidence showing how the complainant lied to police.
  • In E.N., Adam’s client, a transportation company and its directors, was investigated by the police as being involved in a massive cocaine importation scheme. Adam worked with the client and police to demonstrate the errors in the police investigation and the company and its directors were never charged.
  • In J.R., Adam’s client was alleged to be one of the ring leaders in a heroin trafficking operation. Adam was contacted by counsel for co-accused and asked to assist on the case. Adam's work against the prosecution in the pre-trial phase, ultimately led to the withdrawal of all charges against his client and the co-accused before a trial was ever set.
