Calgary Defence Lawyer

A Calgary criminal lawyer



I am Calgary criminal lawyer, David Chow.  In over 15 years of defending criminal cases, I have successfully handled the entire spectrum of criminal cases, including serious impaired driving charges, multi-kilo level drug trafficking, firearms offences, home invasion and murder.  Over the years, I have learned a lot about the law, the process and culture of our criminal justice system.  Notwithstanding that experience is a faithful friend, it is no substitute for hard work, courage and an intellectual approach. Over the years I may have learned how to practice smarter, but the essence of my philosophy has never changed; my interest is your best interest – my only agenda is your success.

Though I have successfully defended the entire spectrum of criminal charges, my practice is heavily focused on defending impaired driving, domestic violence and drug offences.  If you are charged with impaired driving, I offer a VERY COMPETITIVE one-time fee option.  Contact my office for more information.

Defending you is my priority. I am a criminal defence lawyer committed to providing a unique and cutting edge legal service – one where you will be properly informed about all aspects of your case. Whether you are charged with impaired driving, a drug offence or a crime of domestic violence, defending your criminal case is a partnership, where I we will collaborate about strategies, tactics and the law. Ultimately, you are the person carrying the risk; it’s my job to help you manage it.

I understand the law can be confusing, even intimidating. It is my role to help you through the process and to do everything possible to protect your best interests.

My commitment to you is to work intelligently, creatively, energetically and if necessary, viciously, within the parameters of the law. My objective is to ensure your proper representation against a State juggernaut that has access to virtually unlimited resources.

The best resource to defend your charges is your lawyer. I look forward to helping you with your case.
