My Approach

My approach is simple. I do everything in my power to get you the best possible outcome. I leave no stone unturned and work tirelessly and fearlessly with you to develop a strong defence strategy and make sure you obtain the benefit of every right you are entitled to.

Why Choose Omar?


You can book a free consultation where I explain what to expect as your case progresses through the court and provide you with a quote for legal fees if you wish to retain my services. Book one here.


I have years of experience defending clients with all sorts of criminal charges, from very complex cases to simple cases. Whatever your charge, I have likely dealt with it before several times. See all the charges I have experience with here.


Every client and case are unique. I take the time to get to know you and your case well. I provide personalized legal services tailored to your needs and circumstances. 


Most people don't have thousands of dollars saved up to hire a lawyer when they need one, which is why I offer reasonable prices and flexible payment plans for clients who need them. 


I accept legal aid certificates, so if you still cannot afford my fees with a payment plan, I may still be able to represent you if you qualify for Legal Aid Ontario. Find out how to apply for legal aid here.


As an Egyptian-Canadian lawyer, I speak fluent Arabic and I am very familiar with Middle Eastern and other cultures. I help the court and prosecutor understand your case through your cultural lens.

We accept cases all across Ontario! Our main office is in Ottawa, but now that the courts are using Zoom video meetings for most court appearances, representing you virtually has never been easier.
