Police Investigations

Law enforcement agencies often conduct lengthy investigations before arresting someone or laying formal charges. If police have contacted you or if you think you might be under investigation, it is your right to retain and instruct legal counsel. Criminal charges can stigmatize a person for life, having powerfully negative effects on one’s personal and professional life. We are dedicated to protecting the rights of those who are under law enforcement investigation in British Columbia. Schedule a free consultation with us today to learn more about how we can help you.
