About Jordana H. Goldlist
Criminal Defence Lawyer
Jordana H. Goldlist attended York University on a full academic scholarship in 2000, and graduated in 2004, earning an Honours Degree in Philosophy on the Dean’s List. In 2007, she graduated from Osgoode Hall Law School and became licensed to practise by the Law Society of Upper Canada in 2008.
Jordana began her legal career as a Civil Litigator, focused on corporate commercial disputes. She articled then worked as an associate at Landy Marr Kats LLP. As a second year associate, Jordana had carriage of her own files and was accountable to the clients she represented. Civil litigation taught her to strategize, but passion kept steering her towards criminal law.
In 2010, Jordana joined Edward H. Royle & Associates in what was then a new firm of only five lawyers. She was handed her first criminal case on day three at the firm: a client charged with importing half a kilogram of cocaine into Canada. Jordana represented her client throughout the proceeding, including a week long trial in Superior Court. Since then, she has been defending clients charged with a range of offences including: Possessing, Trafficking, Producing, and Importing Drugs; Possessing, Trafficking, and Discharging Firearms; Murder, Attempt Murder, and Manslaughter; Assault (Aggravated, Domestic, and Sexual); Armed Robbery and Home Invasions; Impaired Driving (including causing death); Break & Enter, Theft, Fraud and various property-related offences.
Always a hustler, Jordana built a practise of her own while at the firm and in 2015, she left to open her own business: JHG Criminal Law. Her focus today is on high-risk criminal litigation: people charged with homicide offences, commercial drug crimes, firearm offences, and serious violence. As always, Jordana ensures that her clients receive the best defence possible, from the bail hearing to trial.
Jordana is a member of the Law Society of Ontario, Criminal Lawyers Association, Toronto Lawyers Association, and the Canadian Coalition for Firearms Rights.
