In the well publicized case of R v. Hoang (September 2012), the Defendant John Hoang faced charges involving: Aggravated Assault, Assault with a Weapon, and Possession of a Dangerous Weapon.
Mr. Hoang was dubbed by the media “the road rage stabber.” Mr. Hoang reported to the Toronto Star that he took his case to 2 lawyers who both told him that his case was hopeless – advising him to plea guilty to a three year penitentiary sentence. A desperate Mr. Hoang retained Robb MacDonald one week before his trial began.
Ultimately, Mr. MacDonald, a criminal lawyer in Toronto won the trial and Mr. Hoang was acquitted on all counts. He now offers the following testimonial:
I feel like I owe my life to Robb.
I lost my fiancé, my job, and almost my house when I was first charged with these crimes. It felt like no one stood by me. As soon as I met Robb I had the utmost confidence in him and I knew he was the man for the job. He spent countless hours preparing me for the trial. During the trial, he performed an outstanding cross examination on the man who’d accused me of these crimes. At the end of Robb’s cross examination I knew that no one in the court room believed his side of story. Robb was nothing short of a life-saver.
