Canada’s top criminal lawyer Eddie Greenspan has died at the age of 70 of natural causes in the United States. Greenspan represented many famous Canadians, such as Conrad Black and Garth Drabinsky. It was his devotion to the law that allowed him to built a career that is best described as per the title of his book – “Greenspan: The Case for the Defense”.
MetroActive President, Baldo Minaudo comments, “Eddie was an incredibly devoted and down to earth man. He had the best grasp of Canadian criminal law and justice than any other lawyer I have met. May this great soul rest in peace and may his family have some comfort in knowing that he helped many good people through his journey on earth.”
