Jill R. Presser was called to the bar in 1997. She is the principal lawyer at the law firm of Presser Barristers. Ms. Presser’s practice is primarily devoted to trial and appellate criminal defence. She regularly appears in courts at all levels and represents clients before administrative tribunals. She was a staff lawyer to the Hon. Stephen Goudge on the Commission of Pediatric Forensic Pathology in Ontario. Ms. Presser is often appointed amicus curiae by the Court of Appeal for Ontario in appeals involving unrepresented mentally disordered appellants. She also assists the Court of Appeal for Ontario as duty counsel for unrepresented inmate and in-person appellants. She was a senior lawyer member of the Consent and Capacity Board of Ontario from 2006 – 2014 and prosecuted for the Attorney General of Ontario on a part-time basis from 2001 to 2007. Ms. Presser was an adjunct Professor at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law from 2011 to 2016. She teaches, writes and speaks on a variety of topics in relation to criminal law, evidence, mental health, law and technology and women in the legal profession. The only thing she loves more than being in the courtroom, writing, and teaching, is spending time with her two teenaged daughters.
