Charges Laid Against Aboriginal and Indigenous Individuals
I am on the Legal Aid Gladue panel, which consists of lawyers with the relevant expertise and experience to help the criminal justice system take into account the personal and cultural background of accused people who identify themselves as indigenous and aboriginal. I have worked with many such individuals who find themselves in legal difficulty, often using special resources we are fortunate to have in the Ottawa area.
The process to achieve a desirable result involves investigating a client’s specific history and background. While individual responsibility for one’s actions is seen as a cornerstone of the criminal justice system, as your defence lawyer I can show how historical inequities and structural unfairness have influenced your current situation.
