Dushan Coulson is an associate at Dawson Duckett Garcia & Johnson. He grew up in Edmonton and Westlock, Alberta, and completed his undergraduate degree with a major in Economics at the University of Alberta in 2009. He then attended the U of A Faculty of Law and graduated with his Juris Doctor in 2012.
Throughout law school, Dushan’s primary interest was criminal law, completing courses including Advanced Criminal Law, Advanced Evidence, Sentencing, and Advocacy. He was also active during this time with Student Legal Services of Edmonton. He volunteered with four of its projects in his first year, and was hired by the Criminal Law Project as a full-time summer caseworker and shift supervisor in both his second and third years. In this capacity he had the opportunity to conduct numerous trials for low income individuals who had been charged and were before the courts.
Dushan then joined the firm as an articling student in 2012, and joined us as an associate lawyer in 2013. In that time, Dushan’s practice has focused exclusively on criminal court trials and appeals, and other criminal law-related proceedings. He has argued numerous trials, appeals, sentencings, bail hearings, and similar matters, at all levels of court in Alberta.
