Welcome to the Gwena L. Ozem Law Office

a Kelowna based firm specializing in personal and corporate criminal defence law

Serving the Okanagan

Being a person charged with a criminal offence can be a terrifying experience. A finding of guilt can impact your liberty, employment, driving privileges, ability to travel to foreign countries and your home life.

Businesses and corporations can also be the subject of charges whether it be as a result of a Criminal Code, Canada Revenue Agency, Occupational Health and Safety or Environmental Protection investigation. The laying of charges and a finding of guilt can badly impact a company’s reputation and result in substantial economic loss.

As a former federal and provincial prosecutor, lecturer and legal advisor for 22 years and a lawyer for 26 years, I have conducted literally thousands of trials and hearings and provided legal advice to law enforcement agencies throughout my career ranging from very simple cases to highly complex white collar crime, drug, conspiracy, proceeds of crime and money laundering, and homicide cases. Based on that experience, I will provide you with a thorough and honest assessment of your options and excellent representation throughout the criminal process.

Because the consequences of conviction can be drastic, results matter. It is important to find a lawyer who is experienced and who demonstrates professionalism, integrity and competence. Those qualities enable me to provide you with the best possible advice when results matter the most. You can depend on privacy, confidentiality and discretion.
