Why Should Your Retain Kruse Law Firm?

Criminal law and impaired driving law are very complex and technical and the laws are constantly changing. If you are charged with any type of criminal offence or a DUI, you need a lawyer with the experience, knowledge, and skill to protect your rights and who understands the law and knows what it takes to win in court.

Assuming you are charged with impaired driving, you should be aware that not all criminal law firms also focus on defending impaired driving cases. Whether you are charged with a criminal offence or impaired driving, you need to ensure that the law firm or lawyer you hire, is experienced in and precisely focuses on exactly the type of charge you are facing. For example, if you are charged with sexual assault, how many sexual assault cases has the firm successfully defended (i.e. won in court resulting in an acquittal of their clients) in the last year and in the last five years. The same question needs to be addressed no matter the nature of your criminal charge whether it is a crime of violence, a property offence, a drug crime or impaired driving. If you need heart surgery, you do not hire your family physician. It is no different when you are charged with a criminal offence or impaired driving.
