Julian van der Walle and Jeremy Jensen are criminal defence lawyers that have both been remarkably successful as impaired driving and narcotic litigators in British Columbia. They are now bringing the same work ethic and drive to win that have made them so successful in British Columbia to serve clients in Alberta. Under the National Mobility Agreement, defense lawyers from BC can defend clients in Alberta for up to 100 days in court before being required to seek special licensing from the Alberta Law Society.
Julian van der Walle has been practicing Criminal law for 5 years and has amassed a collection of wins that is truly astonishing in such a short time. For samples of some of his wins please see the Past Wins section of this website. From the beginning Julian focused on defending impaired driving (DUI) cases as well as drug cases. To properly defend a drug case it is essential that your lawyer be extremely well educated in terms of the case law that bears on the issue of whether or not the search that discovered the drugs was legal. If it was not than your lawyer must be able to forcefully argue to the judge that the evidence should be excluded even if it overwhelmingly points to your guilt. Julian has successfully accomplished this many times in cases involving large commercial marihuana grow operations, busy cocaine “shacks”, and drug transportation (ie vehicle stop) cases. Julian wishes to offer his very effective defense services to the citizens of Alberta.
Jeremy Jensen is the son of the famed Peter Jensen who was a highly respected narcotic defense counsel and who argued cases in the Supreme Court of Canada many times in the early days of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Jeremy has been practicing as a Criminal defense lawyer for many years and has achieved excellent results for his clients. From cases involving only a few grams of marihuana, all the way up to multi-kilogram cocaine cases, Jeremey Jensen has a reputation for getting the job done and keeping his clients out of jail. Jeremy also utilizes the Charter of Rights and Freedoms in defending clients charged with impaired driving and has achieved acquittals in many cases in which his clients blew well over the legal limit. Jeremy is excited to offer his services to the people of Alberta.
