Currently, elections are under way for the Criminal Lawyers’ Board of Directors.
If you are a CLA member, I ask for your support.
My platform is one dedicated to addressing the chronic underfunding of legal aid in this province and the private practitioner under siege in today’s climate.
Our biggest concern is the erosion of the certificate model of delivery in favour of perceived, but non-existent efficiencies in the use of law students, duty counsel or paralegals, never even mind “staff-lawyers” – the equivalent of a badly broken public defender model.
I am a very hard-working passionate and effective advocate.
I look forward to working for our clients through the Association, advocating in the interest of our members which is completely aligned with that of vulnerable defendants.
