What I can do to help you
I understand you are facing the most difficult time in your life. My firm is comprised of legal advocates who have dedicated themselves to providing the legal representation you deserve. I will listen to you.
I will carefully analyze the police information and investigation and then I will use every possible strategic advantage to advance your case. Like the rest of our lawyers, I have dedicated myself to providing the legal representation for you.
I became a criminal defence lawyer after working for the Public Defender’s office in Seattle, Washington. I gained extensive experience in cases ranging from minor infractions to death penalty cases.
My experience has honed my ability to understand that each client’s case is unique. Facing a criminal charge is frightening for most people; I practice criminal law because I am devoted to helping those who need effective and cost-efficient legal help.
Each person who seeks my counsel has individual concerns and goals regarding his or her case. I am committed to listening to these concerns and providing advice with compassion and objectivity.
I am dedicated to my work and committed to defending my clients. I am tenacious and will not stop fighting for my clients until I receive the result they deserve.
Career Path & Publications
Surrounded by stellar lawyers and Judges as I began my practice, I have always understood and respected the value of personal freedom and the protection of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
I articled with the Provincial Court of Alberta. I was responsible for researching and writing legal opinions that were used by Judges to assist in their assessment of legal issues in preparation for their decisions. I am a published author in the Canadian Criminal Law Review.
I regularly research and write articles on topical legal issues. Additionally, I was also a Crown Prosecutor. This experience allows me to instantly know criminal law from both sides, which makes me extremely effective at knowing how to precisely challenge the prosecution’s case.
This experience has enhanced my commitment to being the strongest line of defence for my clients.
