Which Criminal Lawyer Will Best Defend Me?

July 19, 2017

If you are charged with a criminal offence under Canada's Criminal Code or Calgary's local and provincial laws, quality legal representation is incredibly important. What happens during your case can affect your life for years to come. Incarceration, heavy fines and a criminal record are all possible outcomes.

Interview several criminal law firms.

We believe it is necessary to get the best representation possible. Ask potential lawyers about their experience handling cases like yours. Ask them about the outcomes they have gotten for previous clients. Learn how long they have been practicing laws and how often they handle criminal cases like yours. The best criminal defence lawyer for you will be the one who has the experience and the drive to get you the most favourable outcome available.

Look for someone whose focus is criminal defence.

There are a number of practices that have a lawyer or two in each discipline. While many of these are fine practices, they may not have the experience and expertise available to them that you can find in a practice that focuses on criminal law. Practices made up of criminal defence lawyers will have personnel who are familiar with cases like yours and have strong experience dealing with the local court system and will know the strategies that are most effective when dealing with the area's Crown prosecutors. They can guide you through the process and give you good advice and service at every stage.

Do not wait to get representation.

Many people feel they do not need a lawyer until they go to court. However, the actions you take at every stage of your case can have bearing on your eventual outcome. By having a skilled and effective criminal lawyer with you throughout the process, you can ensure that you make the right decisions to protect your rights at every stage.
