DUIs and Impaired Driving Cases
While Driving Under the Influence and Impaired Driving are two of the most common types of charges people face throughout Alberta, they are also the most complex charges to defend.
These offences are viewed as some of the most serious by the courts, often leading stiff penalties to be dealt when a conviction is made. It is imperative that you seek the legal services of an experienced lawyer for DUI charges immediately.
The law throughout Canada states that a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level of 0.08 or higher is considered illegal. This means that when you are driving a vehicle while found to be within this range, your driving privileges will be suspended and/or revoked if convicted. Lesser amounts can still have you facing charges of impaired driving even when you are within a legal range under the law.
A criminal defence lawyer on our team will work closely with you to help get your charges reduced or dismissed altogether. Having the legal support of a DUI lawyer has helped convicted drivers maintain their driving privileges, making it possible to continue to drive to your daily work or studies.
By lessening the severity of your offence, our team is also able to assist with avoiding higher insurance premiums and continued scrutiny that can be encountered due to these charges.
Drug Related Offences
Drug-related offences such as possession, trafficking, and manufacturing vary widely as to their severity viewed by the law. However, even the minor charges you are facing can have serious consequences that follow you indefinitely. A conviction made for drug-related charges can prevent you from gaining certain types of jobs, visas and permits to travel, as well as places you on a high-risk listing for security clearances that you may require during your lifetime.
Our team will gather evidence and reports obtained that is related to your case. Our lawyers will seek treatment options as an alternative to punishments when your situation shows this will be the most beneficial to you in the long run.
With assault charges, there are always two or more parties involved. While often summed up to he-said-she-said, it is possible to prove that another party provoked your actions. When this happens, Tarrabain Law will fight to get you the justice you deserve. This may even involve getting you compensated for wrongful charges and defamation of character if you sustain personal injuries as a result.
When a minor in your care is facing criminal charges, they are provided with enhanced rights and protections through Canada’s Youth Criminal Justice Act. While it would be nice to think that police and other law officials especially uphold the rights of children, this is not always the case.
Tarrabain Law takes the handling of youth offender cases very serious, acting on them promptly to ensure you understand the minor’s rights and protections. We can collect documentation and professional reports that show the child lacks the judgment and experiences that prevent them from making rational choices in life.
If you have been accused of committing a crime, or are currently under arrest, we encourage you to contact Tarrabain Law. Your quick actions will allow our Alberta criminal lawyers to get started right away on fighting for your rights and protections.
From attending bail hearings to securing professional witnesses for your case, you can trust that we have the legal support system in place to help you through a difficult time.
