About Davin Charney


Mistreatment that I experienced from police led me to law school and now a 7 year legal practice suing police in civil courts and focusing on criminal cases alleging police wrongdoing.

Law suits against police are specialized and significantly different than other personal injury cases. I developed significant expertise in the area while pursuing over 100 law suits and complaints against 15 police forces in Ontario as well as other public authorities including the Chief Coroner’s Office and Maplehurst Correction Complex.

I continue to be an activist and participate in social justice groups including the Affected Families of Police Homicide. Role model social justice lawyers include Joe Slovo and Nelson Mandela.
