Nick Cake started his career prosecuting impaired driving for the Crown Prosecutors Office.  He left the Crown to join a criminal defence firm where he spent 5 years developing his criminal law practice, focusing on impaired driving.  In 2020 he opened his own firm, Cake Criminal Defence where his focus continues to be on alcohol and or drug-impaired driving.  Nick services London, Sarnia, Chatham, Woodstock, St. Thomas and Stratford. 

As an ex-prosecutor, Nick doesn’t hold back on his former colleagues.  His knowledge of policies and procedures assists him in ensuring that you get the best possible defence.  The landscape of impaired driving has changed over the last few years and Nick is at the forefront of challenges to the legislation and has spoken at conferences of the implication and vulnerabilities of the new laws. 

You need a lawyer who is aggressive, with arguments backed by the law and Charter of Rights and Freedoms Applications.  You need a lawyer who has experienced both sides of things to ensure that all viable defences are raised. 

Nick continues to educate himself on the law, reading the cases as they come out and attending and participating in elite-level seminars.  Hiring the right lawyer when you are charged with impaired driving is one of the most important decisions in your life.  You need a lawyer who is not afraid to fight. 

You need Nick and the Cake Criminal Defence team.

“I was found guilty of something I didn’t do, but my lawyer suggested I simply accept it. A friend recommend I speak to Phillip Millar. Phillip was shocked by the trial and what happened to me. He said it was hard to appeal and carefully explained all the risks. I felt that he was honest and not trying to take my money. In the end was won out appeal. I feel so vindicated. My perspective on the justice system has changed. If indeed you are looking for justice you need someone like Phillip.”


"Nick Cake took my impaired driving case when two other lawyers said I had no chance and should plead guilty. Nick immediately came up with a plan and said it would be a fight but we could win. What I loved about him was his perseverance and willingness to fight for me. The judge in our case even complimented him on his reasoning. After my charges were dismissed I learned 2 very important lessons. The first was to never to drink and drive. The second is Nick is a good guy to know.”


“I saw Nick Cake in court and he was the prosecutor. I remember saying to myself “I hope he never prosecutes my case”. Boy was I pleased when I heard I could hire him to work on my side. It was the right decision and he got my charges dropped within weeks. It is nice to know there is someone who cares and is willing to fight hard for his clients’ lives.”


“I felt safe know that I had Phil and Nick on my side, I was terrified my life would be ruined by these charges, they made me feel like it would be OK, more than that they actually fought for me and won my case where others said it would be impossible. I am forever grateful and will never be in this situation again.”


“I was charged with something I did not do and the incident was used against me at work. I went to a prominent local lawyer. He told me I had to pleas guilty no choice as I would lose. After paying him $3000I realized I needed a second opinion. I found Phillip on the web, read his site and after meeting him decided to take my chances with a trial. I cannot explain how overjoyed I was to be found not guilty. Phillip ruled in the courtroom. He didn’t just accept what the officer said happened. He researched it, challenged it and ripped apart his testimony on the stand. I cannot thank Phil enough for believing in me and saving my life. His dedication and skill is unparalleled.”
