Greenspon, Brown & Associates

Eric Granger

Eric Granger is a criminal defence lawyer who focusses on defending the little guy against the coercive power of the state. He represents clients at all stages of the criminal process, from bail hearings to trials to appeals.

Apart from criminal defence, Eric also has a great interest in appeals. An appeal is when an individual challenges what they believe to be a wrongful conviction or overly harsh sentence in order to preserve their good name. Eric has argued appeals before the Superior Court of Justice, Divisional Court, Ontario Court of Appeal, Supreme Court of Canada, and various administrative boards and tribunals.

Eric received his LL.B. (Magna Cum Laude) from the Common Law Program at the University of Ottawa in 2004.  Eric articled for Greenspon, Brown & Associates after graduating, and has remained with the law firm ever since.

In addition to his work at Greenspon, Brown & Associates, Eric is also a part-time professor at the University of Ottawa Law School, teaching appellate advocacy. He is also a member of the Steering Committee at the University of Ottawa Community Legal Clinic, which aids low income individuals with their various legal issues, and is a board member of the Collaborative Justice Program at the Ottawa Courthouse, which promotes the resolution of criminal charges through restorative justice means. Eric is regularly asked to write or speak on criminal law and the law of evidence at conferences and before groups of lawyers and law students.

Eric is a member of the Defence Counsel Association of Ottawa, the Criminal Lawyers’ Association, and the County of Carleton Law Association.
