About Me

I’m Geofrey Simair, and I’m a criminal defence lawyer. I’ve been serving people across British Columbia since 1996. I’m able to practice throughout Canada (except Quebec) and have represented persons charged with serious criminal offences in Alberta, Ontario, Newfoundland and the Yukon.

My training, combined with my proven results in the courtroom, means you can depend on me to deliver the best possible outcome for your unique circumstance. Every case that I take on is given the attention required for the most positive result. I don’t believe in taking the “easy way out” and I will do my due diligence and research to ensure that we have a strong, solid case. I will only recommend a plea bargain if it’s in your best interest.



Decades of Experience Working for You

I received my law degree from the University of Victoria, and also obtained bachelor’s degrees in history and psychology from the same university. I have argued many successful trials in BC Provincial Court and Supreme Court, including jury trials and complex, multi-week litigation. I have also successfully appealed and defended appeals in BC Supreme Court and the Court of Appeal. I have been a guest judge at the University of Victoria’s moots (mock trials), and have been honoured with multiple speaking engagements as a guest lecturer:

  • University of Victoria Law – Criminal Procedure, Advocacy
  • Professional Legal Training Course
  • Canadian Bar Association, Criminal Justice Subsection (Victoria)

I’m dedicated to making sure you’re treated fairly and get the best possible result for your unique case. Contact me today to see how I can help you.

You’re Not Alone

I help regular people get the best possible outcome in their case, taking into consideration their unique circumstances. I understand that facing criminal charges can be intimidating and can cause a lot of stress. It can feel like the whole world is crumbling, and you want nothing more than to make this problem go away. I can help. I’ve dedicated my career to helping clients faced with a variety of criminal charges, including:

  • Driving while Impaired by Drugs or Alcohol
  • Assault, including Spousal and Sexual Assault
  • Theft, Robbery, and Property Crimes
  • Drug Charges
  • Internet and Computer Crime
  • Roadside Prohibitions
  • Driving While Prohibited

If we decide to work together, I guarantee you will have an assertive and committed defence attorney on your side.  I’m very proud of my longstanding reputation for delivering positive results for my clients.
