When Edmonton was a frontier settlement, and later a proficuous railway hub, the law courts of Edmonton where located on rented space.
While other law courts were constructed in much smaller towns, Edmonton had to wait until it became the capital of the new province of Alberta.
Some criminal offenses, such as white collar crimes, drug trafficking and theft offences carry still penalties and terms of incarceration up to 20 years. Only a few litigation lawyers in Edmonton have experience handling this kind of cases.
If you have any civil, criminal, or immigration matter pending before the Edmonton law courts, you should contact a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible to protect your legal rights.
If you wait too long, you might not be able to present a valid immigration defense.
For example, a default judgment could be entered against you.
