    Accepting Your Criminal Charge Isn’t Always The Answer

    Unfortunately when individuals are first issued a criminal charge for a minor criminal offence, they often accept the punishment they have been sentenced to with nothing but a downturned head. It is important to note, that no matter the nature of your offence, it is always possible to challenge your charge.

    At Martin G. Schulz & Associates, we’ve helped thousands of victims fight their cases with the Crown for a lighter or reduced sentence, an appeal, or to even have the charge dropped. We want you to understand that even if it feels like the walls are closing in on you, there is always an option available to move forward.

    In addition, once you plead guilty to a criminal offence — there is no going back. Even if this was your first offence, having a criminal record can severely impact your life for the worse. Depending on the circumstances and nature of the crime, your offence may stay on your record for a lifetime.

    Don’t let one mistake ruin your future! Get in touch with one of our lawyers today at (403) 245-9000.

    No matter your criminal history, obtaining a criminal record can create major obstacles in your life that can include the following:

    • Difficulties obtaining a professional license
    • Difficulties finding employment
    • Inability to qualify for certain educational programs
    • Inability to apply for scholarships
    • Inability to cross the Canada-US border
    • Inability to apply for citizenship
    • Inability to volunteer at select nonprofit or community organizations
    • Challenges finding safe and affordable housing
    • Being seen as an ‘unfit parent or guardian’ during child custody or family law proceedings
    • And more

    We recommend that you come prepared with a written statement or account of your version of events, any documents given to you by the police or the Court, any witness statements, personal injury medical reports or photographs, and any supporting documents that can help validate your claims.

    During your consultation, our lawyers will review all the documents provided to gain a better understanding of your case and advise you on your legal options going forward. We also ask that you bring a list of questions or concerns you may have so that our lawyers can help you gain a better understanding of what lies ahead.

    If you or a loved one has been served court papers, we recommend getting in touch with one of our Calgary-based criminal defence lawyers as soon as possible so that we may begin building a case for your defence. Generally, court papers will include a strict response deadline.

    If you are unsure of your legal options or are having trouble understanding what you are being charged with, please contact our Calgary criminal law firm. We will help you understand what is being laid against you, show you what your legal options are going forward, and relentlessly represent you in court should no settlement be reached between us and the Crown.


    Time is of the essence when it comes to personal injury claims. Evidence, witnesses, and memories can get lost or fade, so the sooner you start the process, the better. From the moment you contact our firm, we’ll work to understand your situation, answer all your questions, and develop a plan to get you the justice and compensation you deserve.
