About Jillian Williamson
I am a dedicated and passionate advocate. I am an experienced litigator in criminal, quasi-criminal and regulatory cases. I have successfully argued at all levels of court in Alberta. I have extensive experience in sexual assault litigation. The majority of my practice is comprised of sexual assault, violent offences and drug offences.
Surrounded by stellar lawyers and Judges as I began my practice, I have always understood and respected the value of personal freedom and the protection of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. I articled with the Provincial Court of Alberta. I was responsible for researching and writing legal opinions that were used by Judges to assist in their assessment of legal issues in preparation for their decisions. I was also a Crown Prosecutor. This experience allows me to instantly know criminal law from both sides which makes me extremely effective at knowing how to precisely challenge the prosecution’s case. This experience has enhanced my commitment to being the first, best, and strongest line of defence for my clients.
My passion for criminal defence started when I worked for the Public Defender’s office in Seattle, Washington. I gained extensive experience in cases ranging from infractions to death penalty cases. Since then, I’ve been practicing law in Alberta. My experience has honed my ability to understand that each client’s case is unique. Facing a criminal charge is frightening for most people; I practice criminal law because I am devoted to helping those who need effective and cost-efficient legal help. Each person who seeks my counsel has individual concerns and goals regarding his or her case. I am committed to listening to these concerns and providing advice with compassion and objectivity. I am dedicated to my work and committed to defending my clients. I am tenacious and will not stop fighting for my clients until I receive the best possible result in the case.
I have the knowledge and skills to advance the best defence in for those who need me. I am uniquely suited to defend all criminal charges, but I have focused on:
- Sexual Assault
- Possession/Trafficking/Production/Importation of Drugs
- Serious violent offences, including (Assault, Assault with a Weapon, Aggravated Assault)
- Firearms/Weapons Offences; and
- Youth Criminal Justice matters.
