Steve Skurka is a highly respected criminal defense lawyer in Toronto. He defended the landmark racial profiling case in Canada of R. v. Brown involving a former player on the Toronto Raptors. In other precedent-setting cases, he led evidence of marijuana-induced psychosis to mitigate his client’s sentence and relied on the battered child syndrome in a homicide case.

Steve taught at Osgoode Hall Law School, acted as the legal analyst for CTV, and wrote a book about the sensational case of media baron Conrad Black. He is currently at work on Pharo and the Murder at Smoke Lake, the sequel to Pharo and the Clever Assassin.
