The Criminal Code of Canada, the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act and the Income Tax Act contain the most common sets of offences that Canadians may be charged with .
The Traffic Safety Act is an Alberta-wide set of traffic rules similar to ones in other provinces and states. Although there is no criminal record attached to a conviction of a provincial offence,the fines may be more that the fine that results from a sentence for a criminal offence (for example the fines for careless driving).
All lawyers in Alberta are trained to practice in all areas of the law: divorce, corporate, oil and gas, criminal, wills and estate.
Most lawyers choose one or two areas on which to focus their practice. This allows them to better serve their clients because they have developed expertise based on extensive training, mentoring and experience in Court.
Because of their choice of classes in law school; their training with the lawyers they articled, trained or mentored with; and the number of training conferences and seminars they attended and/or presided over, THE LAWYERS AT BOS ARE THE LAWYERS THAT OTHER LAWYERS AND LAW FIRMS REFER THEIR CLIENTS TO WHEN THEY FACE CRIMINAL CHARGES.
