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.

Mobility Agreements of the Law Society of Alberta allows us to represent clients in nearly all Canadian jurisdictions. Ruttan Bates lawyers have been retained by clients for cases throughout Alberta, and in British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Nova Scotia, and the Northwest Territories. If you need a criminal lawyer anywhere in Canada, we encourage you to call us.
