My message has been simple: “traffic in Fentanyl and risk an extremely harsh jail sentence”. The fact is, the writing has long been on the wall.

R. v. P.J.

November 21, 2019

(Turner Valley, T.C.).  David Chow is not just a Calgary criminal lawyer, he is also a Calgary impaired driving lawyer who defends the full spectrum of Traffic Safety Act violations. In this case the accused was facing a number of Traffic Safety Act infractions that if convicted, would have posed serious difficulties with respect to his ability to drive.  Certainly Criminal Code charges are the most concerning, but the impact of penalties arising from non-Criminal Code legislation can have a significant impact on a person's life. For P.J. a conviction may have cost him his job, which would have impacted his ability to earn a living, which would impact his family. In his case, though the allegations were relatively minor, the demerits could have been financially debilitating.  At the end of the day, the accused ultimately successfully defended in two separate traffic trials. If you have been charged with impaired driving, blowing over, refusing to blow, dangerous driving or any traffic related offence, call David Chow for a free telephone consultation.

(Airdrie, P.C.).  Calgary criminal lawyers often appear in jurisdictions outside of the City of Calgary.  David Chow is not only a Calgary criminal lawyer, he is an experienced Airdrie Criminal Defence Lawyer. LC was charged with assault causing bodily harm arising from a serious incident arising on the streets of the City of Airdrie.  The assault was domestic in nature and thus the accused needed an experienced Airdrie domestic violence lawyer. The first trial in relation to this case occurred in 2018. At that trial the case was derailed in the midst of cross-examination and a mistrial was ordered.  The evidence from the first trial and its delay created additional issues and the case was eventually stayed. The lesson from LC s that a criminal defence lawyer must be prepared to be pursue all avenues of defence. David Chow is a Calgary domestic violence lawyer of choice who practices throughout the Province of Alberta. He is an Alberta criminal defence lawyer who routinely appears in the City of Airdrie.
