Michael Bozic obtained his under­grad­u­ate degree at Simon Fraser Uni­ver­sity. He took his law degree at Queen’s Uni­ver­sity at Kingston, Ontario, focus­ing on his inter­est in Crim­i­nal Law. His arti­cles were com­pleted at Ottawa crim­i­nal defence firm Bayne Sel­lar Box­all in July of 2003. Dur­ing his short but reward­ing time with them, he decided to move back to Van­cou­ver. When he arrived, he took a posi­tion with the Fed­eral Crown.

Hav­ing obtained exten­sive expe­ri­ence run­ning tri­als as a pros­e­cu­tor, he moved on to his own Defence prac­tice in 2007. He has worked at all lev­els of crim­i­nal court in this province deal­ing with charges rang­ing from mur­der to drugs. His entire legal career has focused on Crim­i­nal Law and he takes on all crim­i­nal charges.

Mike’s inter­est in Crim­i­nal Law stems from his sin­cere desire to pro­tect civil lib­er­ties. He often does pro bono work. He is a con­trib­u­tor to the Trial Lawyer’s Asso­ci­a­tion PAC fund, and sup­ports efforts to have pub­lic fund­ing to the crim­i­nal jus­tice sys­tem increased.

The Crim­i­nal Defence Bar has helped shape the con­sti­tu­tional rights that every­one in this coun­try enjoys. Those rights include free­dom from unrea­son­able search and seizure, and free­dom from unlaw­ful deten­tion. These are the issues that are lit­i­gated daily in our crim­i­nal courts. A strong crim­i­nal defence bar is required to con­tinue to pro­tect our ever-evolving rights. Mike believes that his work con­tin­ues this strong tra­di­tion of advocacy.
