8 Seconds: A True Story of Addiction, Tragedy and Hope

Margaret Bojanowska was mentioned in the book 28 Seconds: A True Story of Addiction, Tragedy and Hope, by Michael Bryant, published August 21, 2012 (Penguin Canada).
Margaret was the lead associate in Michael Bryant’s successful criminal defence team.

Marie’s office is in downtown Toronto, broadly speaking, as nondescript as one would expect of a defence counsel’s office. Criminal defence practices are lean operations. Most are sole practitioners….

My legal team consisted of not just Marie, but also her juniors, who were hardly junior. Margaret Bojanowska, Jordan Glick, Matthew Gourlay, and Danielle Robitaille are superb criminal lawyers. They all played a pivotal role in my defence, albeit Marie was extremely hands-on throughout. But I learned something about the criminal defence bar in Toronto. They stick together and work together to help each other, even if they’re not retained on the case. This doesn’t apply to every lawyer, but amongst those who reciprocate, there is a sall group of colleagues who advance the interests of the accused, at large….
