Edward Prutschi received his B.A. in Political Science (International Relations) from York University and his LL.B. from Osgoode Hall Law School. At Osgoode, Mr. Prutschi participated in the Intensive Program in Criminal Law, clerking for Mr. Justice Victor Paisley of the Superior Court of Justice. After articling for the law firm of Goodman Philips & Vineberg (now Goodmans, LLP), Mr. Prutschi started his own practice focused on criminal and quasi-criminal litigation, eventually teaming up with Leo Adler and Boris Bytensky to form the boutique firm of Adler Bytensky Prutschi.
Mr. Prutschi appears routinely before all levels of court in Ontario including the Superior Court of Justice and the Ontario Court of Appeal. He is a former faculty member for the Criminal Law course at the Law Society of Upper Canada’s Bar Admission Course where he has instructed law school graduates in criminal procedure prior to their admission to the profession. Mr. Prutschi has also been sought after as a guest speaker in the area of criminal lawyer providing recent addresses to the Ontario Camping Association, the Ontario Bar Association, and the Toronto Construction Association.
Mr. Prutschi is also a certified Intoxilyzer Breath Alcohol Technician – a designation that can come in very handy when defending persons charged with impaired driving related offences. He is a frequent guest on the York University radio program Beyond a Reasonable Doubt and has been quoted in major Toronto and area newspapers for his views on high-profile cases he has worked on and the criminal law in general.
When not vigorously defending the interests of his clients, Mr. Prutschi, a former Governor of York University, can be found protecting the interests of his community through his active participation on the boards and committees of numerous organizations. Most recently, Mr. Prutschi was appointed as Legal Representative to the Research Ethics Board of North York General Hospital.
He is also an active member of several professional organizations including the Criminal Lawyers' Association and the Criminal Justice section of the Canadian Bar Association.
