Criminal Trial Lawyer

Lisa M. Trach

Lisa was born and raised in rural Alberta. She moved to Edmonton to attend the University of Alberta, where she completed a Bachelor of Science before being admitted to the University of Alberta Faculty of Law to complete her law degree.

Upon completing Law School, she articled with Tom Engel and remained on with him for several years. She then took a position with Moreau and Company, where she worked for 3 years before opening Trach Law in December of 2012.

During her time with Tom Engel, Lisa gained expertise in police misconduct and excessive force litigation. Her R. v. Jara case before the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench was one of the first sentence reductions awarded under the Charter in Alberta for the use of excessive force by police against her client. She has been featured on local news in relation to an excessive force matter in Grande Prairie, as well as CBC National for her work in relation to her file where police misuse of the taser was questioned.

After she joined Moreau & Company, her practice became more diverse, and she now specializes in impaired driving matters, drug possession and trafficking matters, domestic violence matters, sexual assault matters, and has been involved in several cases where serious violence is alleged. She has handled a number of murder files, including one where the foster care system was called into question for putting 6 young children in the care of an individual that resulted in the death of one of the children.

Lisa practices in both Edmonton and all rural Alberta locations, as well as some areas in Saskatchewan and the Northwest Territories. She offers a free consultation and is always available to discuss any questions you may have with respect to criminal legal matters.

In her spare time, Lisa returns to her rural roots. She is a horse enthusiast, and raises, trains and competes on her own barrel horses at a number of rodeo and futurity events throughout Alberta.
