About me

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.

In addition to his substantial trial practice, Eric also has a particular 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 benefits from having a combined trial and appellate practice. His experience as a trial lawyer gives him a fulsome understanding of the dynamics of the trial process when going to argue an appeal from a trial decision, and his experience as an appeal lawyer ensures he is acutely aware of conducting your trial in a way that maximizes the chances of a successful appeal if the trial judge makes an error.

Eric received his LL.B. (Magna Cum Laude) from the Common Law Program at the University of Ottawa in 2004 after receiving his B.Arts Sc. (Summa Cum Laude) with a minor in biology from the Arts & Science Program at McMaster University in 2001. Eric articled for Greenspon, Brown & Associates (predecessor to Greenspon Granger Hill) after graduating, and continued practicing with Lawrence Greenspon and Trevor Brown for over 12 years after his call to the bar. Since Trevor Brown's appointment as a judge, Eric now proudly practices in association with Lawrence Greenspon and Tina Hill at Greenspon Granger Hill.

In addition to his work at Greenspon Granger Hill, Eric is also a part-time professor at the University of Ottawa law school where he has taught appellate advocacy since 2015. He is also a member of the Steering Committee at the University of Ottawa Community Legal Clinic, which aids low income individuals with a variety of legal issues, and is a board member and Vice President of the Collaborative Justice Program at the Ottawa Courthouse, which promotes the resolution of criminal charges through restorative justice means. He is formerly Treasurer of the Defence Counsel Association of Ottawa. Eric is regularly asked to write or speak on criminal law and the law of evidence at conferences and before groups of lawyers, law students, and the judiciary.

Eric is a member of the Defence Counsel Association of Ottawa, the Criminal Lawyers’ Association, and the County of Carleton Law Association and, along with Lawrence Greenspon, was the recipient of the 2017 William Carroll Award, presented by the Defence Counsel Association of Ottawa, for criminal case of the year in Ottawa.
