    At Moose Jaw Criminal Defense Lawyer, criminal defense law is our focus and our passion. Our team is ready to protect your rights after you are arrested and charged with a crime, or when you suspect you might be under investigation.

    We handle cases at both the provincial level and at the federal level, and are prepared to give your case our full attention. Hiring a private criminal lawyer leads to vastly better case outcomes than hiring a legal aid lawyer, simply because we have more time, attention, and resources to devote to your case. We’re also more affordable than you might think. 

    Here are some of the most common cases that we accept.

    Drug Charges

    Charged with a drug crime in Moose Jaw? We help with drug possession, possession for the purpose of trafficking, and drug trafficking cases. 

    These cases are extremely complex. If you’re facing federal drug charges there’s a good chance that the investigation involved months of evidence gathering, surveillance, and the involvement of confidential informants. It is vital to work with an attorney who will take the time to dig into every last part of your case in order to find a strategy that will work.

    The Crown must prove that you knew about the substance, handled the substance, and had some degree of control over the substance. If they want to prove you intended to traffick the substance then they must show that you possessed the substance for more than personal use.

    Assault Charges

    Assault covers any instance where one party intentionally applies force to another person without that person’s consent. It covers everything from a serious attempt to harm another person to a simple bar fight. 

    Assault charges include common assault, assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm, or aggravated assault. If the victim was wounded, maimed, disfigured, or had their life endangered then there is a chance you will be charged with aggravated assault. Take these charges very seriously as they can impact your life for years to come.

    Impaired Driving

    Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is one of the most common reasons why most people get arrested. It’s very difficult to judge when your alcohol or drug use has impaired you to the point where it is unsafe for you to get behind the wheel. 

    DUI penalties can include vehicle impoundment, a suspended license, fines, and more. You may also be required to serve jail time. Fortunately, there are many defenses to a DUI, even if you failed a breathalyzer test. 

    In addition, we might be able to help you secure a curative discharge, which will allow you to serve probation. If you meet all the conditions of the curative discharge you may be able to stay out of jail and can help you avoid criminal conviction altogether. This remedy is only generally available to those who have a medically-certified condition of alcohol addiction.

    Theft

    Any theft charge is serious, especially if you are accused of stealing an amount in excess of $5000. Penalties can include fines and jail time. Consequences can grow more serious if you were in a relationship of trust with the person you are accused of stealing from. 

    We have a wide range of defenses that we can employ to help you defeat a theft charge. We will look closely at the facts of your case and will develop a strong defense strategy.

    Domestic Violence

    Charges of domestic violence are more serious than basic assault charges. In addition, you can be arrested, initially, on the word of your accuser alone, even if there is no other evidence that you have committed a crime. In a domestic violence case, law enforcement tends to err on the side of caution. 

    A conviction can result in up to 14 years of prison for a first offense. Previous offenders could face life in prison. If you want to protect your freedom and your reputation, it is vital that you work closely with a Moose Jaw criminal defense lawyer.

    Weapons Charges

    Weapons charges are often paired with other crimes to create longer sentences and increasing the Crown’s chances of winning the case. This means defeating weapons charges is almost always a highly complex matter requiring help from a skilled criminal defense attorney. 

    Guns are legal in Saskatchewan, but you must obtain the proper permits, and you may not own certain types of guns, such as assault rifles. 

    Weapons charges come with a mandatory minimum of five years in prison on the first offense, and 7 on the second.

In some cases we might be able to get your charges withdrawn or dismissed, or help you secure a deferred prosecution agreement, allowing you to escape a criminal record.
