Monte MacGregor, LL.B.

Monte MacGregor was called to the bar in 2003. With his background in banking and commerce, Monte initially worked in corporate finance and securities after completing law school, at one of Canada’s largest firms. Although this experience was rewarding and challenging, it did not fully engage his passion for the law – it was only after stepping into the realm of criminal defence that his passion for advocacy was set ablaze.

Since coming to Toronto, he has practiced exclusively in criminal law. The focus of his practice is on larger scale prosecutions including murder, attempted murder, robbery, break and enter, firearms and drug offences, as well as large scale projects involving multiple accused. These cases demand difficult decisions and complex strategic plans to engage all of the issues and develop the most optimal solutions. Monte uses his years of experience navigating the criminal justice framework in order to guide his clients swiftly through a complex and difficult process.

Early in his career, Monte was fortunate to have the opportunity to teach Criminal Law, the Law of Evidence and Advocacy at Seneca College. This experience helped fortify his knowledge and strengthen his capabilities within the courtroom. Monte takes great pride in having received multiple referrals and recommendations from police officers, prosecutors and judges for people they have known that are in trouble. His experience and reputation amongst the legal community demonstrates the excellence that he brings each time he is called on to defend his clients.
