Rather than most firms, we don’t wait to react just from what the prosecution says, we set out with a goal in mind and construct an unwavering defence by poking holes in the prosecution’s case and proving your innocence as a matter of fact.

We practice:

Impaired Driving/DUI Law

Canada is home to some of the strictest driving laws and stiffest penalties. You could lose your license, pay fines, or even end up in prison. However, police are often known to make mistakes, act without reasonable suspicion, and violate your rights. We know how to defend your rights in an alcohol or drug-impaired driving incident and help you avoid a harmful criminal record.

Assault Defence

Assault is a serious crime, but you are innocent until proven guilty. Our team knows how to make it difficult to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt.

Sexual Crimes Defence

Sexual crimes are some of the most difficult to judge. You need an experienced attorney willing to stand up for you when it matters most.

Drug Possession Defence

Drug laws are unfairly enforced in Canada, and people often find that their rights were violated during the collection of evidence leading up to their charge. Don’t be a victim of an unfair system. Hire one of our Edmonton criminal lawyers today for a free consultation.
