There are two processes you will need to address: the Criminal Code charges and the Alberta Administrative License Suspension (AALS). To learn about fighting the AALS, please see one of the questions below. The first step in defending yourself against the Criminal Code charges, is to phone our office and open a file. Once a file is opened in our office, we answer any questions you may have, we order disclosure (see below), once received we review the disclosure with you, and we appear in court for all of your court appearances so that you do not have to go yourself. When you call the office, please have with you all of the documents you were given by the police upon release so that we can open the file easily.
