Joel is well versed in complex Charter litigation, and has exposed unconstitutional investigative techniques and police misconduct in many cases, often resulting in the exclusion of evidence— such as confessions and other statements, drugs and drug production equipment, firearms, and incriminating digital files— from his client’s trials.

He has been invited to address Parliamentary Standing Committees, and his legal analysis has been published in the Criminal Reports and the Canadian Criminal Law Review.

Joel is often consulted by other lawyers seeking guidance on issues such as the sufficiency of search warrants and judicial authorizations, and the constitutional validity of legislation.
