About me

Jake Shen is a mature professional who has an impressive and diverse educational and experiential background that greatly enhances his skills in the courtroom.

Jake has a background in computer science and was employed as a software developer for several years. He then joined the Toronto Police Service and spent almost a decade on the front line of policing, working at various divisions and units. During his policing career, Jake developed several core skills, such as crime scene management, eyewitness identification, witness interviewing techniques, search and seizure, undercover operation, search and seizure, and is very familiar with police operation and investigative techniques. He also gained a rare, practical insight into criminal trials as a witness for the prosecution on many occasions, and saw first hand how crown attorneys think about their cases as they unfold in court.

As someone who worked at the frontline of our Canadian criminal justice system, Jake saw first-hand how the criminal justice system can impact an individual’s life, which inspired him to pursue law and criminal defence.

While at the Osgoode Hall Law School, Jake was accepted into the renowned Criminal Intensive Program, and completed his placement at a busy Crown Attorney’s Office, where he scored top marks in every category of his placement evaluation.

After law school, Jake articled at the Office of the Independent Police Review Director (OIPRD), which is the agency that oversees and investigates all public complaints against police officers in Ontario. During his articles, Jake participated in several high-profile police misconduct investigations, Ontario Civilian Police Commission (OCPC) appeals, judicial reviews and systemic reviews concerning police use of force, strip-search, racial profiling etc.

All of this gives Jake Shen a special perspective, if not a significant advantage when it comes to developing and executing a devastating critique of any police investigation. He can quickly identify weaknesses in an investigation and construct the most effective defence available. More importantly, however, his vast experience in dealing with people from all walks of life at every stage of the criminal justice process, has given rise to a professional maturity that allows him to advocate on behalf of the people he represents in the justice system with strength and credibility.
