Since its founding in 2004 by Farid Zamani, the law firm has represented clients in cases involving the Law Society of Upper Canada, the Provincial Court of Ontario, the Superior Court of Justice, and various municipalities.
In early 2017, Zamani Law announced it would be expanding its geographical reach to include Alberta and British Columbia.
Zamani Law is the oldest law firm in Canada specializing in criminal defence.
The firm was founded in 2004 by Farid Zamani, who received his law degree from the University of Western Ontario in 1993 and his MBA from the University of Western Ontario's Ivey Business School in 1994.
Zamani also spent time in the United States as a Chicago police officer in the 1990s.
A native of Canada, Zamani currently resides in Toronto.
Zamani Law's office is located in downtown Toronto.
In 2004, Zamani established the firm with the mission of representing clients facing serious criminal allegations.
Over the next seven years, Zamani would represent clients from all over Canada, some of whom had spent years in prison for offences such as murder, robbery and attempted murder.
In 2012, Zamani Law became the first firm in Canada to receive certification by the Professional Standards Bureau of the Law Society of Upper Canada to offer criminal defence services.
In 2015, the firm moved into a new location at 600 Bay Street.
In January 2017, Zamani Law announced it would be expanding its geographical reach to include Alberta and British Columbia.
While Zamani is primarily an author of legal opinion articles and commentary, he is also an author of the bestselling book “The Smartest Criminal: Your Definitive Guide to a Winning Defense”, published by Wiley in 2007.
The book provides the reader with strategies on how to strategically prepare for trial, what questions to ask the jury, and what questions to ask the prosecutor.
The book is written in a light-hearted manner, with many humorous anecdotes about Zamani's experiences in the courtroom.
In 2014, the book was re-released under the title, “The Smartest Criminal (The Casebook)” with an updated list of the “101 Best Defense Strategy Questions to Ask Your Jury.”
