Expertise / Services

For over thirty years, David Greenbank has practiced law in the areas of civil and criminal trial work. With his criminal law practice in Port Coquitlam and Sechelt, he has been involved in both defence work and Crown prosecutions. His experience conducting prosecutions has afforded him the opportunity to analyze trials and cases from the perspective of Crown counsel. This legal experience has greatly assisted him in preparing and carrying out criminal trials on behalf of the defence.

Mr. Greenbank has served as lead counsel on numerous complex criminal cases including:

  • drug conspiracies
  • charges under Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA)
  • impaired driving
  • dangerous driving
  • negligent driving causing bodily harm or death
  • theft and fraud
  • tax fraud
  • property crime
  • sexual assaults

A number of these trials involved intricate evidentiary issues such as the use of wiretap evidence as allowed by the Criminal Code, and the admission of documentary evidence as proof of facts that otherwise would not be available.

Prior to studying for his law degree and becoming a criminal lawyer, David Greenbank obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in biochemistry from the University of British Columbia. His education in science has given Mr. Greenbank a decided advantage throughout his career in addressing complicated scientific evidence; for example, the analysis and pharmacology of various drugs, and the use of DNA evidence to identify suspects. His hands-on scientific experience while studying at the University of British Columbia has proven to be a significant factor in his ability to understand and assess this type of complex and specialized evidence, as well as a solid foundation of knowledge from which to approach these cases.

Mr. Greenbank´s thirty-plus years in the practice of law as a criminal and trial lawyer include hundreds of trials in all levels of B.C. courts, with and without juries. Although he is willing to go to trial at any time that it may be required, Mr. Greenbank´s approach in representing persons under charge is to analyze the case, discuss his analysis with his client, and make recommendations to the client on the basis of what is in the client’s best interest. Mr. Greenbank enjoys a good working relationship with other members of the legal profession which assists him in working to a good resolution on behalf of his clients.
