Calgary criminal lawyer
a word from david chow
"Even if you have experience navigating the criminal justice system, I imagine the choice to hire a defence lawyer is difficult. After all, you are facing criminal charges and may now be struggling to find the money to hire a lawyer. If you are like many Canadians who have no experience in the criminal justice system, you are probably visiting this website (and other Calgary criminal lawyer websites) because you are searching for the right lawyer for you. Doubtless, the message of every lawyer website is trying to sell you -- perhaps even claiming that they are "the best".
In my opinion, if you are reading about a lawyer who tells you that they are "the best", they probably aren't".
To be fair, there are a few Calgary criminal lawyers who would probably be considered "the best" who don't have a website. Also, there are many Alberta defence lawyers having criminal law websites who either barely practice criminal law or who arguably don't practice it particularly well. It's not up to me or any other lawyer to tell you who they are; rather, it's up to you to ensure that you act with reasonable diligence in choosing the criminal defence lawyer for you.
Online presence is a popular and easily accessible advertising medium. However, what is popular is not always advisable. Choosing wisely may be easier said than done.
Full Service Criminal Defence
"In my opinion, the best criminal defence lawyers are innovative, knowledgeable and rationally cynical legal advocates who understand the frailties of our criminal justice system. The best clients are those who are respectfully engaged in their case, rationally prepared to follow reasonable legal advice and duly diligent in taking all reasonable steps to successfully defend their own case. Acting with all due diligence means that if you are accused, you don't blindly hire the wrong defence lawyer; rather, you take the time to enhance the probability that you hire the right one."
