A number of lawyers at DDSG Criminal Law have significant experience representing people charged with professional disciplinary offences in their respective areas of employment in Alberta. We have defended lawyers, accountants, doctors, teachers and police officers against allegations that they have breached their codes of conduct.
While some criminal law/Charter of Rights provisions are applicable to these prosecutions, there are many other specialized administrative law principles unique to the area which our lawyers are fully familiar with. Penalties upon conviction can range from reprimands, corrective measures, fines, loss of pay or other privileges, practice restrictions and expulsion from the profession.
