Criminal Defence All of Calgary Can Appreciate

A lot of folks in Calgary—and everywhere else—have the wrong idea about criminal defence lawyers and what their job entails. The way things are presented on TV, in films, and sometimes in news stories, it can seem like there's an "us vs. them" mentality, with law enforcement and prosecutors on one side and criminal defence lawyers on the other.

In reality, we're all part of the same system, and criminal defence lawyers are an important part of that system. We ensure that the system is fair, that everyone plays by the rules, and that everyone is treated equally and given all the opportunities they're entitled to under the law. Criminal defence lawyers are integral in protecting clients' rights.

Part of a criminal defence lawyer's role is making sure law enforcement officers and prosecutors are following the rules that have been laid out for them, and that every person accused of a crime in Calgary is treated fairly. Part of this fair treatment includes exploring every possible option for their defence in a criminal case, and assisting them with pursuing options that enable them to get their lives back on track with minimal interruption.

The role of Calgary Police and other law enforcement is to make sure everyone in Calgary is doing what they're supposed to be doing, or that they're not doing what they're not supposed to be doing according to the law.

Every person involved in Calgary's criminal justice system is working towards the same goal: making Calgary a safe, fair, and fulfilling place to live. We're all in this together, providing balance to a system that does its best to handle some tough problems. That's something everyone should be able to appreciate.
