Dave was a great friend and true listener when I needed support in a case that needed professional direction – he was paramount to the success of the negotiations with the other party and really stepped up the presence when I truly needed the best. He came through for me and performed to the very highest standard and for Dave I’ll be always grateful.

David put my mind at ease throughout every stage me and my family’s ordeal , David left no stone unturned when it came to getting me the results that I wanted which was acquitted of all charges and ultimately my freedom. Anyone who has been convicted of a criminal offense needs David Karp on their side.
I was in a very serious situation of theft from an employer. I’ve never been in any kind of situation like this in my entire life and I was terrified. I didn’t know where to turn or where to get help. Then I found David Karp. While the charge was very serious and included jail time, David remained honest, realistic, and reassuring. He listened to my needs and was able to keep me home to take care of my family. That is more than I could’ve asked for in my situation. No matter what your situation is, as long as you are open, honest, and willing to face your situation head on, David will take very good care of you. His professionalism and care for his clients is amazing. I recommend him to anyone that ever needs his help and expertise.
We had a family member facing serious drug trafficking charges of cocaine and heroin. We were referred to Mr. Karp and hired him. After lengthy negotiations with Crown all charges were dismissed, due to research pointing to charter breeches.
After being charged with Impaired Driving and blowing over 0.08, I called David Karp. He provided me with a free consultation after which I hired him. He did a great job at explaining my rights to me. The result was that the criminal charges were dismissed and that I do not have a criminal record. Thank you Mr. Karp.
I am glad that I hired David Karp to represent me when I was charged with trafficking of marijuana and running an illegal compassion club. Mr. Karp argued successful and the charge was reduced to a conditional discharge and I do not have a criminal record. Thank you Mr.Karp.
