About Lorant Kiss
Since being called to the Ontario bar, I have practiced exclusively in criminal defence. I have represented clients across the GTA and Southern Ontario facing a variety of criminal charges. The narrow and focused scope of my practice has allowed me to gain experience regarding most aspects of this area of the law.
My interest in law stretches back to before my legal education. Prior to obtaining my degree, I worked in immigration law. The dynamic nature of this field helped me in building the necessary skill set to excel in the practice of law.
Approach to Advocacy
Having to search for a criminal defence lawyer likely means that you are in a tough spot. It is crucial that you pick a lawyer that you feel comfortable working with, as making your way though the criminal justice system is a time intensive endeavour. I strive to ensure that I am available to all my clients to answer their questions and to guide them through a very stressful process.
All cases that I deal with are given equal consideration. I tailor my approach to the unique, individual needs of my clients and their charges. Some charges can be resolved without having to resort to a trial. Other times, a trial is the only way to guarantee that your side of the events are heard. In either instance, I am ready to work with you to obtain the most favourable outcome possible.
Education, Accomplishments and Career Path
I obtained my Honours Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Toronto and my Juris Doctor degree from the University of Windsor Faculty of Law.
While completing my legal education, I spent multiple academic terms volunteering at the city’s legal aid clinic. In this role, I was able to build my litigation and advocacy skills while helping clients charged with a wide range of criminal offences.
After completing my legal education, I worked as a student-at-law and as an associate at an established, full-service criminal defence firm in Toronto.
