Raised in St. Albert, Alberta, Peter matriculated from Paul Kane High School. Thereafter, Peter obtained a Bachelor of Arts (Honors) from the University of Alberta, with first-class Honors standing. During his undergraduate studies, Peter was afforded the opportunity to study legal philosophy under the tutelage of the eminent legal philosopher, Dr. R.A. Shiner.
Upon completion of his undergraduate studies, Peter studied law at the University of Alberta. Peter concentrated his studies on criminal law and criminal litigation, and complemented his studies with practical litigation experience by volunteering as an active member in Student Legal Services.
Following his legal studies, Peter has dedicated himself to the practice of criminal law. Peter has been a member of the Criminal Trial Lawyers’ Association of Alberta as well as a member of the Canadian Bar Association and the Trial Lawyers Association of British Columbia. Peter has been counsel in many reported and precedent-setting decisions. By synthesizing the theoretical with the practical, Peter has succeeded in successfully representing his clients in every level of the court system in Alberta, as well as the Provincial Courts of British Columbia and Saskatchewan and in the Yukon and Northwest Territories.
Peter’s love of philosophy generally, and of jurisprudence specifically, endures to this day and is manifested in his practice and his approach to the interpretation of our Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and the protection and preservation of constitutional rights.
