Choice of Counsel

Putting our clients on a level playing field by letting them choose their own lawyer.

Clients can indicate their choice of counsel within a court district, within Alberta or across Canada depending on the seriousness of their charges.

This allows clients in rural areas, for example, to have access to the same breadth of experience as those in larger centres.
