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.
