Attorney Rob Dhanu uses the valuable knowledge and trial experience he gained as a Prosecutor for the Crown to his clients’ advantage. When defending your matter, you can expect Rob to know exactly how best to proceed because of his extensive training at the Crown office in how to construct a case to obtain a conviction.
Rob is thus able to provide a unique dual-perspective on legal issues because he analyzes each case first from a Crown perspective, and then from a Defence perspective – allowing you, his client, to have the benefit of his experience from both sides of the justice system.
As a Federal prosecutor, Rob gained tremendous experience dealing with all manner of drug and firearms charges. These files required a thorough understanding of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms with particular emphasis on the laws of search and seizure as well as search warrants.
Rob also prosecuted all types of Criminal Code offences in Yukon ranging from motor vehicle offences, property crimes, crimes of violence, crimes of a sexual nature, robbery and more.
During his time at the Crown office, Rob was also the Designated Vancouver Lead in charge of any offences contrary to the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.
As a Crown prosecutor, Rob prided himself on a compassionate yet dedicated approach. In fact, some of the individuals that Rob prosecuted would later go on to retain his services as a defence attorney when he shifted careers. They knew that Rob would put his compassion and dedication to good effect in their defence.
