After spending much of his legal education focused on criminal law, Lance graduated from the University of Alberta faculty of Law in 2011 and joined our firm as a student-at-law. Upon completing his articles in June 2012 Lance joined us as an Associate lawyer, and in 2017 was made an Associate Partner, and became our Managing Partner in 2021.
Lance’s criminal law practice is focused on trial advocacy. In Alberta Lance largely defends serious and complex cases at the trial level including: Sexual Assault, Drug Possession and Trafficking, Undercover & Entrapment Operations, and Assaults and Violent Crime. Lance also practices in the Northwest Territories where he defends a variety of criminal and regulatory offenses and is frequently sought out for particularly difficult or complicated matters.
In addition to his criminal law practice Lance is dedicated to legal education for both active lawyers, having served as the chairperson of the Criminal Trial Lawyers Association Seminar Planning Committee, and for law students at the University of Alberta Faculty of Law where he regularly speaks and is a guest lecturer on a variety of criminal law and advocacy related topics.
Lance understands that getting charged with a criminal offence can be very stressful and confusing. He would be happy to meet with you to discuss your concerns and options. Lance can be contacted by calling our Edmonton office or by emailing him at [email protected].
