David G. Bayliss

Several years of travel,  hard work and self discovery preceded David's entry into the formal post-secondary education system. Graduating with a Bachelor of Arts (history major) from the University of Waterloo in 1979, a law degree soon followed from the University of Toronto Law School in 1982.

After completing his articles with pioneering criminal defence attorneys Jack Pinkofsky and James Lockyer, David was called to the Ontario Bar in 1984. Returning to Pinkofsky Lockyer to practice criminal appellate and trial advocacy, he was soon made a partner. During David's tenure, Pinkofskys, as it came to be known, grew into Canada’s largest criminal law partnership.

In 2010, David left Pinkofskys to form his own firm, David G. Bayliss Professional Corporation. Now, David continues to do what he loves with the same goal of consistently successful results, but in a setting designed to provide his clients with a more personalized and re-assuring service during those trying times in which they find themselves accused of a crime.

David has represented litigants before the Ontario Court of Appeal, regulatory bodies and the trial courts of Ontario and other provinces. Natural ability, honed by real world experience, passionate commitment and a profound belief in the vitality of a vigorous defence in the democratic system, has enabled David to consistently convince judges and juries of the justness of his clients’ cause.
