Jon Doody

Jon Doody has been with Bayne Sellar Ertel Carter since 2011 when he started working as a summer student. He was called to the bar in 2014, and has been practicing criminal law since. During his time with the firm, Jon has had the opportunity to work with senior counsel assisting in the defense of a number of criminal and quasi-criminal charges. He has represented clients facing a wide array of criminal offence charges including, but not limited to: impaired driving, assault, assault causing bodily harm, sexual assault, aggravated sexual assault, possession of a firearm, murder and terrorism. Jon has assisted on matters before the Ontario Court of Justice, the Superior Court of Justice (including both jury and non-jury trials), the Ontario Court of Appeal and a military courts martial. Jon also represents clients in regulatory matters, such as Highway Traffic Act offences and By-law infractions, as well as appeals of such matters. Jon has expertise in reviewing and challenging both search warrants and the underlying documents -- Information to Obtains (ITOs) -- used to request a search warrant. Search warrants are often used in cases involving drugs, weapons and computer-related offences such as child pornography. Successfully defending these charges often requires a careful assessment of the search warrants and challenging them when necessary. After completing his Honors Degree in History and Film at Queen's University, Jon attended the University of Windsor where he completed his J.D. in 2013. While in law school, Jon worked at the Community Legal Clinic in Windsor, and in his final year he completed a clerkship with Justice Dean of the Superior Court in Windsor. Jon is a member of the Criminal Lawyers Association and the Defence Counsel Association of Ottawa.
