Over the past decade, Frances Brennan has quickly risen to become one of London’s top criminal defense lawyers.  She has fought and won many cases in London and surrounding communities including Sarnia, Woodstock, St. Thomas, Goderich and Stratford. 

Frances has practiced criminal law in Southwestern Ontario since her call to the Bar in 2006. Frances graduated within the top 3% of her class at Osgoode Hall in 2005. After articling at a major Toronto firm, Frances returned to her home city of Stratford, Ontario, where she gained valuable courtroom experience doing trial and appeal work.

In 2010 Frances moved to London to join local criminal lawyer Jeanine LeRoy's growing practice. When Madam Justice LeRoy was appointed an Ontario Court Judge in December 2011, Frances assumed Justice LeRoy's practice and continues to build a successful criminal law firm.

Frances works hard to develop an enriched understanding of the law and its application.  Her range of experience includes cases from murder, impaired driving, impaired causing injury, impaired causing death and sexual assault. 

As a lawyer, Frances has developed strong analytical skills which she uses on behalf of her clients in all written materials.

Frances is also exceptionally strong with her oral argumentation in the courtroom. 

Although skilled in her craft as an attorney, Frances never loses sight that her work is ultimately about the client, working under the philosophy that everyone must be treated respectfully and compassionately and given an opportunity to express their narrative. 

For me, the best part of any case is the seconds after a client realizes they have been acquitted and their ordeal is finally over.
