Criminal Law  
The criminal justice system can be overwhelming for individuals going through the system, especially first time offenders who have no idea what to expect. Defence lawyers take care to represent the best interest of their clients. At Tisel Law we have experience representing clients who have been charged with criminal law offences at the Provincial Court and Court of Queen's Bench. We will carefully review your case to ensure that you get the best possible legal defence. We understand the implication of a criminal conviction and keep our clients informed throughout the court process.

Regulatory Offences
Federal, provincial or territorial legislation provide for regulatory offences.

Regulatory offences are enacted to protect the health, safety and general wellbeing of citizens from loss, potential harm or even death.  Regulatory offences address activities such as trade and commerce, advertising, driving on highways, motor vehicle licenses and business permits, health and safety standards as well as basic employment standards. Breaches of these regulatory offences can lead to significant financial penalties or continuing loss of freedom. It may sometimes lead to suspension or total cancellation of a business license, especially where the act or omission complained of was carried out in a negligent manner or below the reasonable standard of care that have been established to protect the common good. At Tisel Law, we will work hard to defend your interests as best as we can, and ensure we minimize your legal or financial risks.
