Cugelman & Eisen Lawyer Bios

Mitchell ("Mitch") Eisen holds a bachelor of arts degree from McGill University in Montreal, and went on to the University of Toronto Law School, where he focused on criminal procedure and criminal litigation courses and won awards in both those fields. As a law student, Mitch developed a sincere passion for criminal law and by the time he graduated in 1989, he knew that criminal law would be his future.

Mitch was called to the Bar of Ontario in 1991, and rapidly built a wealth of invaluable experience in all areas of criminal defence law, conducting trials before judges and juries, preliminary hearings, appeals, bail hearings and Charter of Rights motions. Mitch is always straightforward with his clients, advising that while he can never guarantee a particular outcome at trial (no lawyer can), he can and does guarantee a hell of a fight to obtain the best results for his clients. His practice ranges from representing clients in all manner of criminal offences through regulatory federal and provincial offences. He has successfully defended clients charged with everything from impaired driving to sex assault to a recent acquittal for a client charged with first degree murder. He is known in the Barrie legal community for his depth of experience, integrity, and excellent courtroom skills. He is recognized as a Certified Specialist in Criminal Law by the Law Society of Upper Canada.

In addition to his legal practice, Mitch has instructed and lectured at continuing education conferences and seminars organized by the Law Society of Upper Canada, the Ontario Bar Association, and the Criminal Lawyers Association of Ontario. He is a past president of the Criminal Lawyers Association of the County of Simcoe. He also enjoys coaching high school students in preparation for the Simcoe County Board of Education Mock Trial event. He is a sought-after commentator for local media on matters involving criminal law. In 1996, he took a year-long leave of absence and practiced criminal law in New Zealand.
