The life of a criminal charge is a dynamic one. 

Key to securing the best result in any case is recognizing and taking advantage of any opportunity that arises.  In order to do so it is essential that one has the ability to assess and reassess the circumstances of the case as it moves through the Court system and to dynamically react to each new development.  Equally as important is an ability to maintain a complete and detailed understanding of the facts and legal issues that affect each matter.

Mr. Embry employs a combination of careful attention to detail and a deep understanding of both substantive and procedural law in order to not only achieve the best possible result but to do so as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Dean F. Embry, B.A. (Hon.), LL.B.

Originally from Calgary, Alberta, Dean Embry attended the University of Calgary and earned an Honours Degree in Philosophy focusing on analytical thought and theories of morality.  Dean moved to Toronto in 2000 to attend the University of Toronto Faculty of Law; graduating in 2003.
While at the University of Toronto, Dean was employed as a research assistant and as a shift leader at Downtown Legal Services; a clinic which provides representation to low income individuals charged with criminal offences.  In his second and third year of Law School Dean split his time between primarily criminal law related classes and the clinic through which he had the opportunity to prepare for and conduct multiple criminal trials prior to graduation.
After completing his articles of clerkship at the criminal division of Sack Goldblatt Mitchell Dean was called to the Bar in 2004 and worked for a well-known Toronto criminal lawyer for two years before joining Schreck & Greene in 2007.  Dean remained at that firm through its various incarnations until 2011 when he opened his own practice.
Dean's practice includes the representation of clients on a wide variety of matters. A substantial portion of his practice involves complex conspiracy cases, fraud related matters, drug possession and trafficking matters, serious personal injury offences including sexual offences and matters involving accused dealing with mental health issues. Dean has appeared in all levels of court in Ontario and appears regularly before the Ontario Review Board.

Dean is a member of the Ontario Criminal Lawyers' Association.
