Knowledgeable Legal Advice
Police and Crown counsel, when they lay charges and prosecute, will look at all of the details of your offence to decide what to charge you with. Everyday items such as a beer bottle or kitchen utensil can be considered weapons in the context of an assault. Once a charge is elevated from simple assault to assault with a weapon, it is very important to have a lawyer to defend you. Turn to us to provide the detailed evidence to support your case and contradict the case presented by the Crown.
Assaults of Sexual Nature
Upon conviction for sexual assault, you can face many serious consequences, including a jail term and the addition of your name to the sex offender registry. However, all is not lost. With our long-time experience of defending criminally accused people and involvement in complex courtroom proceedings, we can help you get the most effective resolution. While there is never a guarantee of success, having a skilled advocate at your side is an essential ingredient in obtaining favorable results.

As seasoned professionals within the Alberta justice system, we have the experience and knowledge required to make a case for alternative measures.
