Calgary Criminal Defence Lawyers

A letter to our clients and potential clients

Alberta Legal Scale Icon

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.


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.

Legal Issues - What to do

“I was so scared, and I was always thinking I have this case against me and how I am going to win this case, how am I going to survive… Whenever I asked questions or whenever I worried … I talked to her she was always there to help me….. She won the case because she is that good, I was in tears I couldn’t say a single word to her, but I said you saved my life” Former Client, Calgary, Alberta

I highly recommend Matthew Deshaye. I got charged with a DUI and Matt did an exceptional job he got it thrown out before trial. He kept me up to date as soon as he had any information. His assistant Dina Kruskic was amazing and very helpful with any questions I had. I can’t thank these two professionals enough for helping me get through this difficult situation in my life. 15/10
