What Makes Us Different

We focus on Criminal Law ONLY

While other law firms in Edmonton offer a variety of legal services, our firm specializes in criminal law specifically. This means you get a depth of knowledge and a wealth of experience from a team of criminal lawyers who know this area of law inside and out. We provide legal counsel that takes into account the unique circumstances and complexities of each case, ensuring that you receive a comprehensive defense strategy tailored to your situation. Our team is committed to obtaining the best possible outcome for your case.

We specialize in Alberta Law

Edmonton, like many other Canadian cities, is no stranger to crime. According to Statistics Canada, the city has seen an increase in criminal activity over the past few years. With this uptick in criminal activity comes a need for experienced legal counsel that understands the nuances of Edmonton’s justice system. That’s why having a team of dedicated criminal defense lawyers who specialize in defending those charged with criminal offenses within this area is so important. This includes impaired driving offences, domestic violence & assault charges, firearms & weapons charges, and drug-related crimes like trafficking or possession of illegal substances.

Our knowledgeable legal team is well-versed in the nuances of Canada’s justice system, with particular proficiency in navigating Alberta’s regulations.

This means you get advice that is tailored to your experience in Edmonton. For example, while DUI or drug-related cases may be prosecuted differently in other provinces, our team can provide legal counsel that is tailored specifically to the circumstances of your case within the context of the Alberta justice system. A specific example of this is the Immediate Roadside Sanctions Program. This program was implemented by the Alberta Government in 2020 and affects how impaired driving cases are handled. If you have been charged with impaired driving you have also very likely been charged under the immediate roadside sanctions as well. Overall, our team’s robust knowledge of any ongoing changes to laws in Alberta and across Canada can help you get the best results for your unique situation.

What do Criminal Lawyers in Edmonton Do?

Since Edmonton is Alberta’s capital city, it is home to both the Provincial Court of Alberta, and The Court of King’s Bench, which is the Superior Trial Court for the province.

Criminal defense lawyers in Edmonton can help you navigate the system, and are responsible for representing individuals who have been charged with a crime. They provide legal advice and representation, and they work to ensure that the rights of their clients are protected throughout the criminal justice process. At Pringle Law, we’re highly familiar with both the Provincial Court of Alberta, and The Court of King’s Bench.

Our criminal defense lawyers strive to achieve fair outcomes for our clients by building strong cases on their behalf.

What do Trial Lawyers in Edmonton Do?

Trial lawyers are lawyers who specialize in representing clients during criminal trials. They may represent those charged with crimes such as sexual assaultdrug trafficking, and other violent crimes; or they may defend individuals accused of internet crimesfraud and white-collar crimes, or impaired driving.

At trial, a criminal lawyer’s primary goal is to obtain the best possible outcome for their client. This means ensuring that their client’s rights are not violated, and that any and all evidence against their client is presented in a manner which is fair and accurate.

Trial lawyers must be knowledgeable about criminal law, have strong negotiation skills, know how to prepare and present a case, be able to make persuasive arguments in court, and be well-versed in the rules of evidence.

Additionally, trial lawyers are responsible for representing clients in court proceedings. They prepare cases, interview witnesses, represent the client at trial, and submit motions to the court to influence the outcome of a case. Trial lawyers must be familiar with court procedures and legal rules, as well as knowledgeable about different areas of the  law. They must also be highly skilled in researching and analyzing legal issues, effectively arguing their case in court, negotiating settlements with opposing counsel, and providing sound advice to their clients.

At Pringle Law, we understand that being charged with a crime can be an overwhelming experience. We strive to provide our clients with compassionate service while ensuring that their rights are protected throughout the criminal justice process. Our team of experienced criminal defense attorneys has a deep understanding of the law and years of courtroom experience, so you can trust us to provide effective legal representation. Contact our office today to learn more about how we can help with your criminal case.
