Criminal Defence Lawyer in Moose Jaw
Decades of experience as criminal lawyers ensure that we have all the skills you need to bring your case to its best possible outcome.
A private criminal lawyer can make a big difference to the outcome of your case. Even a small misdemeanor charge is a serious event that can have major repercussions for the rest of your life. That’s why we’re passionate about exploring every option for your defence.
OUR PRACTICE AREAS
We are a dedicated criminal law practice. We handle any misdemeanor or felony charge that you might be accused of. See our Practice Area page for more details on the specific kinds of cases we’ve managed in the past.
The crimes we handle include:
Our process begins with a consultation and case review. In many cases this will happen after you’ve been arrested, though at times it can be wise to retain a lawyer before you are arrested. If you have any reason to believe that you are under investigation for a crime, you should contact our office as soon as possible. We can help.
We’ll stand with you at you first appearance 24 hours after your arrest. Most of the time you will be released with a series of conditions and an order to return to court for your trial date. We ensure that your rights are protected throughout the process.
In Saskatchewan you have the right to retain counsel without delay. You have the right to telephone any lawyer you wish. You also have the right to remain silent. We highly recommend refusing to answer any questions or talk about the circumstances of your arrest until you have a lawyer present with you to help guide you through the process.
After your first appearance we’ll begin digging into your case. We talk to potential witnesses, search for exculpatory evidence, and look for holes and weaknesses in the prosecution’s case. We’ll go through all of the Crown’s evidence against you.We’ll look for places where the police violated your due process. We’ll then help you develop a strategy.
We’ll be there for you at your pre-trial or resolution meeting. This will determine whether the case goes to trial at all. Often, we can use this meeting to help our clients avoid charges.
For some of our clients, plea negotiation will be the right call. Sometimes the Crown’s case is weak enough for us to get those charges dropped or dismissed. For non-violent misdemeanors, we may be able to help you secure a deferred prosecution agreement or remediation agreement. When your case is strong enough, we’re happy to take it all the way to trial so that we can pursue an acquittal on your behalf.
Innocence Isn’t Enough
It’s tempting to believe that your innocence alone will be enough to ensure that you go free. In reality, there are over 800 wrongful convictions here in Canada every year. You need a dedicated, experienced criminal defence lawyer to give yourself the best chance of minimizing the impact your arrest will have on your life.
How much does it cost to hire a criminal defence lawyer in Moose Jaw?
It costs less than you think. It also costs less than being found guilty for any crime.
Once you’re arrested, every aspect of your life is at risk. You risk jail time and hefty fines. You might lose your career and your prospects for future employment. Criminal convictions can tear families apart. It can become impossible to rent an apartment, because every landlord will want to check your criminal record.
The out-of-pocket cost for your case will depend on the complexity of your case.
We work with our clients to make obtaining representation as feasible as possible. When you meet with us we’ll go over our billing method and the amount that you’re likely to pay over the course of your case. Most cases are relatively routine and we can often provide very accurate estimates of what the final bill will look like.
Will a criminal defence lawyer represent a guilty client?
Absolutely. We’re here for anyone who is accused of a crime here in Moose Jaw.
In truth we’re not even concerned with your factual guilt or innocence. It’s immaterial. We’re concerned with your legal guilt or innocence. It’s not about what you did. It’s about what the Crown can prove.
In fact, we even recommend calling a criminal defence attorney when you intend to plead guilty. We can often help you obtain a lighter sentence. You also shouldn’t be making decisions about how to plea until you’ve spoken with a defence attorney.
Every person in Canada has a right to an attorney when they’re in trouble with the law. We’re here to protect your rights. If you need us, call us.
