Ryan Handlarski

ryan-handlarskiRyan obtained his Bachelor of Business Administration from the Schulich School of Business at York University.  Ryan then obtained his law degree from the University of Ottawa, where he graduated cum laude and won the John Kavanagh award for criminal law. Following law school, Ryan articled at McCarthy Tétrault and worked primarily on the defence of individuals accused of market manipulation by the Ontario Securities Commission.  Following his articles, Ryan worked as an associate for Greenspan Partners and acted on cases involving allegations of fraud, sexual assault, drug trafficking and murder.  Ryan’s perspective on the preparation of cases and the criminal defence process has been shaped by his exposure to some of the preeminent lawyers and law firms in Canada.

Since starting his own criminal law practice, Ryan has continued to defend individuals charged with a range of offences, from less serious charges such as assault and impaired driving to very serious offences such as trafficking cocaine, sexual assault and sexual interference, break and enter, aggravated assault and murder.  Ryan believes that every individual charged with a criminal offence deserves a thorough and vigorous defence and deserves to have a lawyer that is accessible to explain the criminal justice process at every step of the proceedings.

Ryan is a member of the Ontario Bar Association and the Criminal Lawyers’ Association.
