Experience

Jessica Parise’s practice encompasses both civil litigation and criminal defence. Jessica has always been interested in the intersection of criminal law and civil litigation and the ramifications that both may pose to a defendant or complainant/plaintiff when faced with both concurrently. She recognizes the competing interests in civil and criminal litigation, where in the civil context a defendant may be compelled to disclose information at an examination for discovery, in comparison to a defendant in a criminal proceeding who has the right to remain silent. The difference in the burden of proof, coupled with the delicate balance of varied rights promotes the need for strategy that only a lawyer like Jessica, who practices both, can truly appreciate and advance.
