Community Advocacy

The lawyers at ASMLAW have been at the forefront of public interest advocacy.

The firm has advocated for and represented clients in the areas of human rights, discrimination as well as serving as pro bono legal counsel to a number of non-profit organizations.
Our lawyers have also been instrumental in meeting with law enforcement and government officials on issues of public interest.

In the wake of 9/11 our lawyers have assisted in the preparation of submissions to both House and Senate Committees on Bill C-36 (Anti-Terrorism Act) and Bill C-17 (Public Safety Act) as well as various other legislative initiatives at both the federal and provincial levels.

Our lawyers also have written and spoken about controversial and contentious legislation such as Bill C-51 (Anti-Terrorism Act), Bill S-7 (Zero Tolerance for Barbaric Cultural Practices Act), and Bill C-24 (Strengthening Canadian Citizenship Act).

We are committed to giving back to the community and we have demonstrated this through the actions of the firm and our lawyers.
