    • Inability to apply for scholarships or entrance into certain educational programs
    • Mobility issues if your license has also been suspended or revoked
    • Challenges moving across the Canada-US border
    • Challenges applying for citizenship
    • And so on

    We’ve helped victims understand their criminal offence case and obtain fair outcomes that range from lighter sentences to dropped charges.

    Criminal Law Frequently Asked Questions

    The first steps when issued court papers are to retain a calm mind and understand what they may entail. We understand that, especially for first-time offenders, being served court papers is a scary and, possibly, traumatizing experience. It is important to keep a level head when dealing with these documents. Generally, court papers will include a strict response deadline and time is not on your side.

    We strongly encourage you to contact one of our criminal defence lawyers as soon as possible after you have been served with court papers so that we may begin building your defence. Book a consultation with us today at (780) 490-1100!

    To make the most of your first consultation with one of our criminal defence lawyers, we recommend that you bring the following documents:

    • A written statement outlining your version of events
    • If possible, any witness statements
    • Any documents given to you by the Court or police during your criminal offence issuing
    • Any supporting documents that can corroborate your account of events, such as emails and phone records

    These documents will help our lawyers better understand your case and provide a more accurate picture of what your legal options are going forward.

    Retaining a lawyer who is knowledgeable in the local criminal justice system is crucial if you wish to navigate through the criminal defence process without undue complications. In addition, the right criminal defence lawyer can be key in having your charge appealed, your sentence reduced, or even your case dropped.

    At Martin G. Schulz & Associates, our Edmonton criminal defence lawyers specialize in assault, drug offences, impaired driving, criminal driving, sex crimes, property crimes, fraud, and youth offence cases.

    We strongly advise that individuals consult with one of our criminal defence lawyers before giving the police any sort of statement. Oftentimes, these statements are given while the victim is already experiencing high levels of stress and may have little to no knowledge or understanding of the charges being laid against them. In addition, any discrepancies found in your statement can be used against you in court.

    By first consulting with one of our lawyers, you secure the opportunity to regain your bearings and are provided with our unbiased and informed opinion on whether giving a statement to the police serves your best interests.

    Our lawyers work with your individual wishes and needs in mind. We will negotiate with the Crown on your behalf to ensure that you get a fair and just outcome. If we are unable to reach a settlement that is to your satisfaction, then our lawyers are prepared to relentlessly fight your case in court.
