From Our Clients...
“I would have missed out on my daughter going to her first day of kindergarten […] I was told about Martin and called him and he told me not to worry about it and that he would set up my next court date and talk to legal aid himself. Martin was pretty sure he could get me no jail time from the start, he gave me quite a bit of confidence.
I cried tears of joy that he was able to help me be with my children and still be able to work and provide for them. If I had to re-do it all, Martin would be my go-to person because he was there for me.”

While choosing a lawyer you know by association through a friend or family member’s recommendation, or one you only know by reputation may have some merit, the right lawyer can be the difference in turning your case hearings in your favour. There are many different fields of law and by choosing a lawyer that specializes in defending criminal offences such as roadside sanction violations or assault charges, you guarantee that you will be receiving personalized and expert services for your case.
No matter where you reside in the Alberta or BC regions, our lawyers are experts in the local laws and criminal courts. By retaining a lawyer for your criminal defence, you not only hire an experienced and immovable force to handle your communication with the other party, but you also gain personalized and well-informed legal counsel and advice for your criminal charge.
In addition, depending on the circumstances surrounding your criminal offence, our team of expert criminal lawyers can even help you get a reduced sentence, have your charge appealed, or even get your charge withdrawn with a thorough investigation.
In Canada, your criminal record will remain as is for decades on end depending on your criminal charges. While it is possible to have criminal offences removed through record suspensions after demonstrating good behaviour for a set number of years, your life will be drastically impacted the second you find yourself with a criminal offence on your record.
Regardless of an individual’s criminal history, they may find themselves experiencing the following after they’ve received a criminal record:
- Difficulties finding employment
- Inability to apply for citizenships
- Trouble moving between the Canada/US border
- Inability to volunteer with certain organizations and nonprofits
- Struggling to find or gain approval for housing, be it for rental or purchasing mortgages
- Failure or disqualification from certain educational programs and scholarships
- Unforeseen challenges during family court and being seen as an “unfit” parent or guardian due to possession of a criminal record
- Inability to obtain a professional license
- And more

We strongly advise against giving a statement to the police until you’ve consulted with a criminal defence lawyer first. This is because, oftentimes, individuals are requested to provide a statement when they are already under high levels of stress and uncertainty. Any kind of statement given during this time may not adequately describe your version of events or what transpired leading to your charge. In addition, if there are any discrepancies found in your statement, they may be used against you in court.
By consulting with one of our criminal defence lawyers, you gain the opportunity to collect your nerves and provide a reliable statement to not just the Crown but also to our team of lawyers. We will review all the information provided to us and supply you with a reliable, nonjudgmental, and bias-free opinion on whether or not giving a statement to the police best serves your case in the long run.
