One of the most important parts of the criminal process, our firm has an exceptional track record in achieving release from custody pending trial for our clients. In fact, the vast majority of our clients are released on bail into the community to await their trials.
Our lawyers are known for their meticulous preparation and fearless representation of their clients at trial. Our legal knowledge, litigation skills, and innovative trial strategies lead to defences being presented for each and every one of our clients.
If our client's rights are infringed during their interactions with law enforcement, Sitar & Milczarek is able to assist with lawsuits against police and/or correctional authorities. Knowing that a civil suit may be launched, our lawyers conduct their criminal trials with this future litigation in mind. We always structure cross-examinations so that, while they are relevant to the criminal trial, they will also assist our client with their subsequent civil lawsuit.
Regardless of whether criminal charges are laid or whether criminal convictions are obtained, it is possible that the Alberta government may seek assets and/or property for civil forfeiture. With a practice encompassing both criminal and civil litigation, Sitar & Milczarek is uniquely equipped to assist clients whose property is restrained pursuant to the Victims Restitution and Compensation Payment Act.
