If you have been charged with or convicted of a criminal offence in Calgary, it is usually not a good idea to take a “go-it-alone” approach. A good criminal defence lawyer can be your advocate throughout every stage of your criminal case and can make all the difference in the world when it comes to obtaining a favourable resolution of your case.
In addition to the harsh penalties and sentences that go along with a criminal conviction, the conviction itself can make it extremely difficult – if not impossible – for you to obtain a job, get into school, or find a decent place to live.
The criminal defence lawyers at Bourdon Defence can review your case with you and help you formulate one or more good legal defences to the crime with which you have been charged. Over the past fifteen years, our lawyers have established a strong track record of success and are ready and willing to assist you with your criminal case today.
Legal Knowledge and Expertise
Most people are surprised to learn that courtroom proceedings are not at all like the legal dramas they watch on television. The real-life courtroom, unfortunately, is not nearly as exciting or dramatic. Moreover, the average layperson is not trained in criminal law or procedure. If you are hiring a tradesman, such as a carpenter, plumber, or electrician to do work in your home, you want to make sure that you hire someone with experience under his or her belt. Similarly, if you are undergoing a serious medical procedure, you want to hire a reputable surgeon. The same goes for a criminal defence lawyer. When you have sustained a criminal charge, you want an experienced legal professional on your side who has successfully defended criminal cases and who has a track record of success. The potential consequences are too uncertain for you to represent yourself in a criminal case.
