Joshua A. Clarke B.A., B.A.(Hon.), LL.B.
Criminal Defence Lawyer
Mr. Clarke is a respected and experienced criminal defence lawyer. He was called to the bar in 2009. Mr. Clarke regularly appears in the Ontario and Superior Courts of Justice in Ottawa and surrounding jurisdictions (Alexandria, Cornwall, Kemptville, Kingston, L’Orignal, Pembroke, Perth, Renfrew, Arnprior, Hawkesbury and Smith’s Falls).
Upon his call to the bar, Mr. Clarke opened his own law firm in association with another lawyer. He practiced criminal law and family law for a few years. In 2011, the firm was rebranded to Clarke Criminal Law, a practice devoted 100% to criminal defence work.
Since that time, Mr. Clarke has developed an extensive criminal defence practice covering virtually all areas of criminal defence work.
In 2017, the firm was once again rebranded to Armoured Suits, a client-centered criminal defence law firm focused on empowering clients and an ever-improving ability to maximize results.
He is a member in good standing of the Law Society of Ontario, the Criminal Lawyers Association, County of Carleton Law Association, the Defence Counsel Association of Ottawa, and Barristers for a Better Bytown.
Mr. Clarke views himself and both an advocate (arguing client’s cause to others) and an educator (informing client about process, outcomes, chances of success).
He has been a longtime supporter of Reach Canada, CHEO, and the Canadian Cancer Society.
