Calgary Criminal Defence Lawyers
A letter to our clients and potential clients
We are frequently asked why we are so selective when it comes to accepting potential clients. We intentionally limit the number of clients we accept. We believe that the few clients we take on, the better the outcomes are for each case. This selectivity allows us to focus on fighting to the ends of the earth for each client we accept because we are not overwhelmed.
EXPERIENCED DEFENCE LAWYERS
We Practice with Diligence and Strategy
It is important to us that our clients know and understand that we strategically build trial plans that are unique to each case. We do not compare one case to the next. No case is the same. Some detail or piece of evidence may seem to be irrelevant to you or to another lawyer. However, through our strategic defence building plan, this detail may end up being the critical piece to the entire winning strategy. All we do is methodically build solid and unique legal arguments that throw the prosecutor off their game.
A Reputation Of Success
Finally, we are respected professionals. Your opponents and the judges hearing your case know us. They respect us because we diligently practice with respect and reliability.
Lawyers That Are Representing You
We live these values in our practice every single day. We are honoured and privileged to represent our clients with life changing problems. We take this responsibility seriously. We don’t “shoot from the hip” like other lawyers do. But we are human, and we understand what you are going through. We understand the fear and anxiety and the toll this takes on you and your family. We continuously strive to help those who need us the most and to be the best when you feel you are at your worst. We find ways to empower you through the legal system. We do it every single day. If you find yourself in what feels like a hopeless and powerless situation, please call us. We are serious lawyers who fight serious allegations every single day.
