Shelley Moore, LL.B
Shelley is a knowledgeable, professional and approachable criminal defence lawyer strongly motivated to defend her clients.
Shelley is originally from Calgary, but took her law degree at the University of Windsor. She was called to the Ontario bar in 2002. Starting as an associate, she worked her way up to partner before eventually starting her own criminal practice in Toronto.
With the development of the Inter-Provincial mobility agreement, Shelley felt the call of the west and decided to move back to her home town of Calgary. She was admitted to the Alberta bar in 2010, and soon after launched Moore Law Practice.
Shelley has gained extensive experience through her trial work in the Provincial Courts of both Ontario and Alberta, as well at the Ontario Superior Court of Justice and the Alberta Court of Queen's Bench. She has conducted trials by jury and trials by judge alone, so she is well versed in the tactics of the courtroom, including the rigorous cross-examination of witnesses, professional experts, and police investigators.

Brad Kraus, JD (Associate)
Brad was raised in small-town Leduc, Alberta, where his knack for writing propelled him to the top of his high school English classes. He attended the University of Alberta School of Business, graduating there and then moving to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, where he graduated from Saskatchewan’s College of Law in 2017.
Born and bred in a blue-collar town, Brad is never shy of hard work. He’s spent cold winters wrangling heavy equipment and hot summers cooking in kitchens, working shoulder-to-shoulder with people from all walks of life.
During articles with Moore Law Practice, Brad ran numerous successful sentencing hearings and bail applications, prepped and ran multi-day trials, and drafted several Charter applications that resulted in charges being withdrawn before trial.
Everyone charged with a criminal offence deserves a fair outcome. Brad will ensure your story is heard, and your rights protected.
