Sebastian G. Joseph

Born in India, George immigrated to Canada in 1967 and has since lived the Canadian Dream.

George's career in law started prior to going to law school. In 1994, George was employed by the Ministry of the Attorney General as a provincial prosecutor. His duties included prosecuting offences and conducting appeals under the Provincial Offences Act, Highway Traffic Act, Liquor Licence Act, and other provincial statutes. The Crown Attorney suggested that George attend law school and come back to work for them as an Assistant Crown Attorney and conduct criminal prosecutions.

George attended the University of Saskatchewan Faculty of Law in 1995 and graduated in 1998, receiving the Gabe Burkhart Memorial Award for outstanding achievement in criminal law. He joined Petrone + Partners soon after as an articling student and has remained ever since, becoming a partner in 2009.

George has practiced in civil litigation, administrative law, real estate, but the main focus of his practice is criminal litigation.

George is a member of the Criminal Lawyers Association, a Council Member for the Ontario Bar Association, a Director on the Board of Directors for the Thunder Bay Law Association, and serves on the Executive for the William W Creighton Youth Services.

George has represented clients at all levels of Court in Ontario, including the Ontario Court of Appeal. He has cheated death by running with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain.
