Criminal Defence Investigations

We believe that criminal defence is the most important task a legal professional can undertake.

"It is fundamental that in furtherance of the right to make full answer and defence, an accused must be able to conduct full inquiry into potential sources of information that may prove valuable."
The Honourable Mr. Justice J. Williams

As criminal defence investigation specialists, we have helped Edmonton's top criminal defence lawyers defend clients against serious charges in high profile cases including assault, robbery, sexual assault, and homicide.

As a result of our investigations, dismissals and acquittals followed.

At Gilliam Burke Investigations, we believe the best defence is a good offense. As the Crown has the full weight and power of the the government behind their investigation, the defence is often forced to play catch up. By providing a timely and comprehensive investigation early in the process, we level the paying field and work to protect the rights of the accused.
