We can help.


I needed to hire a criminal lawyer in southern Alberta. The first lawyer I retained had a number of years experience, however I felt he did not put forth the effort required to help me with my matters so I chose to hire someone else.

The second lawyer I hired was Mr. Wade Hlady. Throughout the court process, trial included, Mr. Hlady was an excellent lawyer. He always gave me complete explanations of everything regarding my case and the law. Mr. Hlady stayed in contact with me and always gave me the opportunity to make decisions. The advice he gave me was always In my best interest. Mr. Hlady proved to be a diligent, adept and confident trial lawyer. I was acquitted of all criminal charges. I would recommend Mr. Wade Hlady to anyone requiring legal advice or services in Lethbridge or southern Alberta.
