    Edmonton's Criminal Defence Lawyers

    If you’re reading this, it’s likely that you or a loved one have been arrested by the police and charged with a crime. Although the law states that you’re innocent until proven guilty, the police and the Crown’s prosecution are only interested in proving your guilt, and they’ll work together with every resource at their disposal to do it.

    In the face of such concerted and passionate opposition, our team of highly skilled and experienced criminal defence lawyers is your best chance at evening the odds.

    At Martin G. Schulz & Associates, our team of criminal defence lawyers serve Edmonton and its surrounding communities and will, without judgment, build a vigorous case to defend your rights, prove your innocence and protect your freedom.

    Get Started Today!

    Every second counts in a criminal defence case. It is essential that you seek legal counsel as quickly as possible – ideally, while the Crown’s prosecution is still developing their case against you.

    Witnesses tend to disappear or forget details, and evidence often gets lost, but the criminal justice system does not wait. Our skilled team will immediately begin a review of the claims against you, perform a thorough investigation, and conduct detailed legal research. Once complete, we will compile a persuasive case and talk you through your options.

    We are the lawyers to talk to for your criminal defence case in Edmonton. Our consultations are always free, with zero judgment and no pressure.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    For the first meeting with a lawyer, please bring all documents given to you by the police or the Court for one of our associates to review in order to fully understand your case.
    It’s also helpful to prepare a detailed written statement of your version of events, as your memory will fade over time. The sooner you can write a comprehensive account, the more useful it could be in court. Witness statements and injury reports such as photographs will also help your criminal defence lawyer greatly in building a persuasive case to bring to court for your defence.

    We can help in several ways! Depending on what you’ve been charged with and the severity of the charge or offence, our team may be able to help and reduce your sentence, appeal your charge, or even have your charge completely dropped. At Martin G. Schulz & Associates, we practice in assault, drug offences, impaired driving, criminal driving, sex crimes, property crimes, fraud, and youth offence cases.
