As soon as you contact us by email or phone, you will be able to talk to a lawyer, free of charge, about your options. That lawyer will give you information about the first steps you need to take in order to find out if you have defences worth taking to court. We will tell you about options which may allow you to get your license back and drive until your trial date. The lawyer will provide important information about deadlines that you have to meet in order to exercise those options. We will also be brutally honest. Either you have arguments or you don’t. We will ensure that, whether you plead guilty or not guilty, your decision is a fully informed one that you will be comfortable with years down the road.
Bruce Gunn excelled in defending impaired driving offences. Impaired driving, also known as DUI (Driving Under the Influence), DWI (Driving While Impaired) and drunk driving all refer to the same thing. Impaired driving, driving with a blood alcohol level over the legal limit and refusal cases are charges which many lawyers do not feel comfortable defending. That is understandable. If impaired driving law is not one’s passion, then one cannot excel at it. The law changes almost daily and our criminal defence lawyers have received the training they need to know about the scientific background behind the breath-testing procedures currently in use. Bruce Gunn had the imagination, creativity, knowledge and determination needed to successfully defend impaired driving cases. The defence lawyers he trained at Gunn Law Group, and those who have joined the firm since his passing, are well-positioned to launch a vigorous defence of these cases.
Our firm stands out in the areas of impaired driving, DUI, DWI, over .08, and refusal charges. If you look at our flagship cases, you will see that Gunn Law Group has been instrumental in developing the law on impaired driving in Alberta and elsewhere. Most of our impaired driving lawyers have taken specialized training on breath-testing instruments such as the Intoxilyzer 5000C, the Intoxilyzer 8000C and Intox EC IR II. Impaired driving, DUI and DWI files are the cases we take to trial every day. Once we review disclosure, we will give you an honest opinion about whether or not you should take your case to trial. If our opinion is that it is worth litigating, you can expect a strong, well-prepared defence at trial.
We also have lawyers with significant experience defending Criminal Code offences other than impaired driving charges, and who will ensure that you receive excellent representation whatever the offence alleged.
