How we help defend criminal charges

Alberta Legal Scale Icon

A serious criminal charge can put your freedom and reputation in jeopardy. You just can’t afford to have a generalist lawyer in your corner. At Alberta Legal, we handpick criminal cases based on what we’re able to take on and deliver the best possible outcomes. Clients often ask us why we exercise thorough scrutiny before taking on potential clients. It’s because we are committed to fighting for our clients by being fully involved in the unique circumstances surrounding their cases. We don’t take on too much, which enables us to deliver personalized service each time.

Experienced Criminal Defence  Lawyers

We are strategic in our approach

A strong trial plan will be uniquely curated to address the needs of the case. At Alberta Legal, we strategically build trial plans using our decades of combined experience along with extensive criminal law knowledge. We understand that no two cases are exactly alike. Some minor details may be overlooked and used as evidence against you. Our criminal lawyers will leave no stone unturned. We’ve spent many years building complex legal arguments that generate successful outcomes. If you need to hire legal professionals to create a winning strategy, our team is ready to help.

We are respected criminal lawyers

We’ve worked with numerous legal teams in Drumheller including prosecutors and judges involved in your case. We’ve earned their respect in the courtrooms and at negotiation tables having practiced criminal defence matters with professionalism and reliability.

We fight for your rights and freedom

There are serious ramifications when convicted of a criminal offence. If found guilty of a criminal charge, you could face immigration consequences, jail time and a criminal record that could make it difficult for you to get employed. Having our criminal defence lawyers by your side can help improve your chances of avoiding these negative outcomes. At our law offices, we work as a team to get you the best possible outcome. We understand that the full weight of the state (prosecutor’s officer) is trying to prove you guilty. Our job is to fight back on your behalf.

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
