BELLEVILLE CRIMINAL DEFENCE LAWYER
1. Main Belleville-Quinte Courthouse Building
Belleville has a gorgeous new modern courthouse opened in 2013 that features lots of natural light (especially great if you're someone who hates windowless rooms), a limestone clad exterior, and a green roof. This may be little solace if you're forced to undergo lengthy legal proceedings here, but it does at least make for a good work environment, and stands in stark contrast to the 1967 built main Toronto courthouse which never seems to get a makeover.
