CORRECTIONAL LAW

/kəˈrekSH(ə)n(ə)l/ /lô/ 

The law relating to the punishment of criminals in a way intended to rectify their behavior.


The experience of federal incarceration is usually long, frightening, and full of legal problems.

Federal prisoners are some of the most vulnerable citizens in Canadian society: many have had abusive childhoods, suffer from mental illnesses, and are addicted to alcohol and/or drugs. They are controlled by a large and often arbitrary and unfair bureaucracy, and they need expert advice on how to best cope with the challenges of incarceration.

I have extensive experience assisting federal prisoners to not only enforce all of their legal rights but to rehabilitate themselves so that they may rejoin society at the earliest opportunity.
