Appearing in the Safe Streets Act appeal before the Ontario Superior Court, CCLA Special Counsel Frank Addario and Venora Simpson contended that " ... for certain disadvantaged people, begging is a centrally important vehicle - and, in some cases, the only vehicle - by which they can express their needs and ... mobilize support for their ... interests."

Ask Frank what it takes to be a good criminal lawyer and he'll say: start with a healthy dose of skepticism and a willingness to challenge authority. Combine that with a genuine passion for helping people solve problems they can't fix on their own and you have a good criminal lawyer. You also have a pretty good description of Frank himself.
It's these qualities that drive his interest in criminal law and that have placed him at the top of his profession. Named one of the 25 Most Influential Lawyers in Canada in 2010 and past President of the Criminal Lawyers' Association (CLA), he has frequently appeared as counsel before the Supreme Court of Canada. He regularly represents individuals and corporations under investigation or who are the target of enforcement proceedings by police and regulatory agencies.
In 2011 he was given the Lexpert Zenith Award for contributing to Access to Justice for his work in leading the CLA in a boycott of Legal Aid in order to bring attention to the chronic underfunding of the program and force the government to provide better access to justice for its poorest citizens. In 2012 he received the Dianne Martin Medal for Social Justice Through Law. Osgoode Hall Law School awards this medal to a member of the Canadian legal community who has demonstrated a commitment to using the law as a means for achieving social justice.
Frank is frequently asked to explain criminal law issues by the media. He writes and speaks about criminal law and civil liberties to lawyers and to the wider public on a regular basis. His interest in advocating for those whose rights need defending has led him to become a director of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association.
After practicing at the respected firm of Ruby & Edwardh and leading the criminal law litigation group at Sack Goldblatt Mitchell LLP, he founded the Addario Law Group in 2012.

Frank Addario, vice-president of the Criminal Lawyers Association, agrees.The problems aren't just felt by journalists; lawyers also have problems gaining access to court records, as a result of "idiosyncratic practices across the province."
"It's not information that belongs to lawyers or to bureaucrats," Addario said yesterday.
