About Us


Let our experience and skill work for you.

Ethics and integrity are cornerstones of our practice. We refuse to put forward less than our best effort. As a result, Ruttan Bates enjoys among the highest reputation of Calgary criminal lawyers. Our practice is thriving based almost entirely on referrals from clients, other lawyers and even members of the judiciary.

We also often assist other lawyers who need help preparing materials for the Alberta Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada.

If we cannot resolve your matter through negotiation then our criminal trial and appeal experience will ensure that you have the best possible representation in court.

Ruttan Bates has assisted clients from across Canada and in USA and Europe.

We are routinely available for trials and appeals in Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan and appeals to the Supreme Court of Canada in Ottawa.
