Welcome To Fair Legal

I’m Charles Fair, founder of Fair Legal in Calgary, Alberta. I became a lawyer because I am passionate about helping others and ensuring their rights are protected. In addition to myself, our team at Fair Legal includes Melanie Seneviratne, Business Manager, and Legal Assistant Simone Assailly.

At FAIR LEGAL, we are your champions for justice when you are facing civil litigation, family and criminal legal problems.  We understand that legal problems involve much more than what goes on in the courtroom. We help you consider the long-term impact that these problems have on your relationships with the people in your life, your reputation, your business, and your finances. A lawyer for nearly 30 years, I became a lawyer because I believe that is the right way to do things and that is why I started Fair Legal.

Family Law

Do you need to protect your children, property or the life you know?

At Fair Legal, we help you face family legal matters head-on with honest, straightforward advice and experienced legal representation. We handle all types of family law matters including:

  • Parenting
  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Spousal support and/or alimony
  • Division of matrimonial property
  • Divorce and legal separation
  • Restraining or Emergency Protection Orders

Civil Litigation

Are you being sued or do you need to sue someone?

Litigation cases are about disputes that arise because of broken contracts, negligence, or other failures to respect personal rights and obligations. Litigation is a process of resolving disputes in a court of law, usually with a judge. The court process is often slow and lengthy. Fair Legal handles a variety of civil litigation cases including:

  • Wrongful dismissal
  • Lawsuits
  • Collections
  • Foreclosure
  • Commercial lease enforcements
  • Shareholder and partnership disputes
  • Builder’s liens
  • Negligence

Criminal Defence

Have you been arrested, or accused of a crime?

If you are the target of an investigation, have been criminally charged with a misdemeanor or crime, or are concerned you may be charged, the criminal justice system is overwhelming and frightening. Fair Legal wants to protect your rights and ensure that you are treated fairly throughout the process and that any sentence is one that is appropriate for your circumstances and not disproportionate to the alleged crime committed. Fair Legal handles cases in many areas of criminal law including:

  • Representation for bail hearings
  • DUI (Driving Under the Influence)
  • Assaults
  • Sexual Offences
  • Offences arising out of substance abuse issues
  • Breach of Release Conditions
  • Theft, Robbery, Break and Enter
  • Regulatory offences (including safety codes and breaches of Orders)

What Do You Have to Lose?

When you think about your current legal situation, think about how it will impact your time, money and reputation? These are important things in your life that we want you to feel good about having the right resolution. You are not just a case; you are a human being. We will help you think through how this matter is going to help your whole life not just legally.

We are your champions for justice when life gets messy.
