On December 1, 2020, Immediate Roadside Suspensions came into force in Alberta and you only have 7 days to file an appeal.
The Province will suspend your license for at least 15 months, and fine you a minimum of $1000 without laying a criminal charge or taking you to the Court - unless you appeal.
Our lawyers have already conducted appeals of the IRS and are ready to conduct yours.

You have two problems: the criminal impaired driving charges and the Administrative Licence Suspension (ALS).
Criminal Charges (Impaired, Over 80, Refusal)
Criminal charges are very technical, and we know them inside and out. If you are convicted, there will be either a fine or jail, plus you will lose your driver’s licence for a minimum period of 1 year, which does not include the ALS suspension.
In the last 30 years, we have successfully defended over 4000 criminal impaired driving cases. We act for anyone who is willing to retain us and we win over 90% of our cases. In some cases, we will give you a money back guarantee.
The Administrative Licence Suspension (Impaired, Over 80, Refusal)
In Alberta, if you were charged with Impaired Driving offences, you would have received an automatic ALS suspension for a minimum of 15 months. The only way to avoid this suspension is to win an appeal, which must be filed within 30 days of the date you were charged.
We recommend that all of our clients purchase a NON-PERSONAL APPEAL FORM. The form costs about $135 and can be purchased at any registry office. Sign it and bring it to us, and we will file it for you, if you retain us on the criminal charges. We will obtain the police reports on the ALS appeal. These appeals are more difficult to win than the criminal charges. We will tell you what your chances of success are on the ALS Appeal, for free. If you decide to proceed with the ALS appeal, there will be an additional charge.
