Our Firm

Since joining practices in November 2017, Ryan Heighton and Nicole Soehner have combined to tirelessly advocate for their clients in criminal matters in Southwestern Ontario (with a focus on Kitchener, Waterloo, and Cambridge).

We treat all clients with dignity and respect, and will explore every aspect of your case to be sure that every option is properly considered. We understand that facing criminal charges is an overwhelming time in someone’s life, and that everyone in that situation needs someone to fight for them.
