Alex articled with criminal defence lawyer, Richard Braiden and joined Dobson Law in 2020 after his call to the bar. He wished to broaden his experience in criminal law and became an Assistant Crown Attorney in early 2022. He prosecuted criminal and provincial offenses in Parry Sound for nearly a year before moving away from criminal law and into civil litigation. He worked at Shillington McCall LLP as a civil defence lawyer from late 2022 to the end of 2023. He came full circle, rejoining Dobson Law in January 2024 armed with a new set of tools to apply to his true passion as a criminal defence lawyer.
