A SMALL SAMPLE OF OUR SUCCESSFUL CASES
Our client was charged with possession with intent to traffick after he rear ended another vehicle causing a three vehicle pile up due to the impact of the force.

Shortly thereafter our client was arrested and contacted us from jail. We were able to quickly secure his release on bail, and immediately ordered and reviewed disclosure. 

After receiving our Charter notice, the Crown Prosecutor withdrew the charges against our client prior to trial.
Possession With Intent to Traffick
Our client was charged with assault causing bodily harm after an altercation at a bar which left the complainant with a concussion.

Upon being retained, we learned that our client’s employer would be willing to reinstate him so long as he did not receive a criminal record. We ordered disclosure, helped our client enter into anger management and began negotiations with the Crown Prosecutor. We informed the Crown of our client’s mitigating circumstances and the actions he was taking to address the issue. Based on this and the fact that the complainant did not wish to proceed, the Crown agreed to withdraw the charge.

Mr. Motevalli and his team were amazing. He treated me respectfully and even though my outcome didn't look so good, in the end he was able to get my charges dropped. Thanks to him I was able to stay in Canada. Thank you for everything!
H.K.
Mr. Motevalli was very kind, considerate, knowledgeable and understanding. He explained every step and helped see me thru the whole process. I would highly recommend him. He sees people for who they are and not what they are charged with.
V.O.
It is with absolutely gratitude that I write this review, if not for Mr. Motevalli my case would have left me with a criminal record but he worked incredibly hard to ensure that didn't happen. I wouldn't hesitate to refer Mr. Motevalli to anyone looking for legal counsel.
A.H.
When I was arrested, Mr. Motevalli was there within hours to bail me out. He met with my friends and family to prepare for my bail hearing and I was released shortly after thanks to him. He dealt with all of us professionally and with great respect.
J.A.
I found Mr. Motevalli very helpful. I had many questions and he was able to answer all of them. I have met a few lawyers through work and wasn't satisfied with them. Mr. Motevalli took his time and made sure I understood what I needed to know. Thank you!

WE CAN HELP
Our client was charged following an altercation with his wife after she accused him of having an affair. During an argument, our client  pushed his wife against a wall. His wife then contacted police and our client was arrested shortly thereafter at the home.

Upon being retained, we learned that our client and his wife registered for counselling shortly after the incident and as a result, his wife did not want to proceed with the charges. We contacted the Crown Prosecutor to raise these circumstances and begin resolution discussions, at which time the Crown agreed to withdraw the charges in exchange for our client successfully completing counselling.
Impaired Driving and Over .08
Our client had a dispute with her bank after her account was closed for unpaid fees. When she learned it would not be reopened until fees were paid, she stormed out, slamming the bank door, causing significant damage.

Upon being retained, we began negotiations with the Crown Prosecutor in order to resolve the matter informally. Our client was sent to Alternative Measures but due to her new employment, she was unable to complete all the requirements. After an extension was rejected, we spoke directly with the Calgary Assistant Chief Crown Prosecutor and secured an arrangement that allowed her to make a charitable donation in return for a withdrawal of her charges.
Impaired Driving and Over .08
Our client was charged when he solicited a sexual act from a woman who turned out to be an undercover police officer.

Upon being retained, we immediately ordered disclosure and reviewed it with our client. We learned that our client had never solicited sexual acts previously and it was his interaction with the woman that enticed him to do so. We reached out to the Crown Prosecutor and shared this background on our client and based on this, the Crown agreed to resolve the charges through the Alternative Measures Program. As a result, the charge was withdrawn, and our client avoided a criminal record.

Solicitation of Sexual Services
Our client was charged with sexual assault after he slapped a stranger’s buttocks while he was heavily intoxicated. Our client had mistaken her for a friend. The police were called and they arrested our client.

Upon being retained, we ordered and reviewed disclosure. Through our interviews with our client, we found out that alcohol had likely contributed to his actions. We directed our client to attend for sexual boundaries counselling and substance abuse counselling. We began negotiating with the Crown Prosecutor. We advocated for our client by explaining the circumstances surrounding the offence and providing proof of our client’s progress in counselling. We ultimately convinced the Crown Prosecutor to withdraw the charge against our client.
Sexual Assault
Mr. Motevalli is a very professional, dedicated and hard working lawyer. He's honest, trustworthy and always there for his clients. It is with absolutely gratitude that I write this review, if not for Mr.Motevalli my case would have left me with a criminal record but he worked incredibly hard to ensure that didn't happen. I wouldn't hesitate to refer Mr. Motevalli to anyone looking for legal counsel.
I have had the pleasure of being represented by the best defendant. I was charged for the first time and being in a world of absolute uncertainty, I was rest assured to be assisted in the best way possible. I am satisfied with the results and I encourage anyone in a tough position to consider Mr. Motevalli and his law firm.

Our client was driving home from a night out with a friend when he turned the wrong direction onto a one-way road. He immediately noticed his mistake and began to make a U-turn when he was pulled over. The police officer asked our client if he had anything to drink, to which he responded “yes” and was instructed to get out of his vehicle. When the officer mentioned that another officer would soon bring a roadside test, our client stated that his lawyer advised him not to provide a sample and he intended to follow those instructions. After refusing the officer’s demand, our client was arrested for refusing to provide a breath sample.  

Upon being retained, we discovered several problems with the investigation, including a Charter violation and raised these with the Crown Prosecutor. As a result of our negotiation, the Crown withdrew the charge against our client.
Refusal to Provide a Breath Sample
Our client lost control of his vehicle and as a result, it rolled over and struck a power pole. Both a witness in a nearby home and our client contacted police to report the incident. When police officers arrived, they asked our client if he had anything to drink, to which he responded “no”. The officer then demanded a breath sample but stated that because our client was smoking a cigarette, they would have to wait 20 minutes before taking the sample. About two and a half hours later the officers took several breath samples from our client which all failed to produce a result. Our client was then arrested and charged with operating a motor vehicle while impaired.

Upon being retained, we immediately ordered disclosure and found several Charter violations throughout the course of the investigation. We raised these with the Crown Prosecutor and as a result of these discussions, the Crown withdrew the charges.

Impaired Driving and Over .08
Our client was pulled over by the police after running a stop sign. When the police approached our client’s vehicle to issue him a ticket, they reported being able to immediately smell alcohol coming from his breath, and also noticed that he had very slurred speech and red glossy eyes. Further, when the police asked our client to exit his vehicle for the purpose of performing a roadside screening test, it was reported that he could not keep his balance and that he immediately fell back down into his car. Our client was then arrested for impaired driving and brought back to the police station where he blew 0.200 and 0.210 in the evidentiary instrument.

Upon being retained we immediately ordered and reviewed disclosure, and found that our client’s rights had been violated a number of times throughout the investigation. We filed a comprehensive Charter notice on our client’s behalf and notwithstanding the strong evidence against our client, all charges were withdrawn prior to trial.
