Dedicated Alberta Solicitor, Serving Your Community

I’ve seen the inside of an Aberta courtroom many times. It’s where I practice. And I know that these places can be cruel and impersonal. You might just be another number in the system, but to me, you’re a human being with rights and dignity that I will strive to uphold and protect.

I don’t tolerate disrespect towards myself or my clients, and I have built a reputation for being a dedicated, respectable lawyer.

How I’m Different

I’m experienced.

Back in my years as a law student, I knew from an early age that defendants needed a listening ear and an advocate in their corner. I sprung at the opportunity to study and practice criminal law, and have had a number of stellar successes in my years of practice. I have come to specialize in a few distinct areas, and because I know my specialties well, you can feel confident that I can help.

I’m strategic.

Everything I do comes with an element of strategy. From the start of our interaction, I determine everything, from how you may be perceived to how we may best argue in your favor. I’ll inform you of my plans and observations, and we will work towards making your case heard in effective, strategic ways.

I’m confident.

Because of my experience and expertise, I know what I know, and I know it well. You wouldn’t want a new, anxious lawyer handling your case. You’d want someone who walks and talks confidently, who is assured and optimistic, and who can persuade and strategize at every step.

I’m respected.

I have relationships with prosecutors and law enforcement personnel, so I may utilize these relationships to bring your case swiftly and easily towards resolution. I have many satisfied clients, and I know there will be many more. My work ethic, values, and determination keep me going, and people recognize that.

I’m here for you.

You are the most important part. I know you’re not just a number; I truly care about the work that I do, and I know that people’s lives and livelihoods are at stake. Because I know that the client is the central part of the process, I put you and your needs first when I work for you.

The Road Ahead

Here is what to expect going forward. The road may look rocky, and the skies may look dark, but there is always another day and another bright blue sky.

Your next step is very simple. Just reach out to me via telephone or via the contact form on my website. I will handle the rest. We’ll have that initial consultation, where I’ll inform you about the certain, likely, and possible outcomes of your case. I will review your case in detail, then formulate a strategy that we can stick to going forward.

From there, I’ll be by your side, guiding you through the process every step of the way. We will work together in many ways, and I’ll always fight for you in the best way I know how. We can strive for the best possible resolution together and move past this chapter of your life.

So, now is the time to stop reading and take action. Contact me today, and let’s move past this together.
