Bringing a humanist set of skills to your legal research and professional needs.
Research and writing are my calling, and I want to use my passion to promote your story and your enterprise.
My education suits me to employment relations matters, to legal research, and to humanities writing. I hold a BA and MA in English Literature. I now study law and will begin a doctorate that focuses on defining Canada’s Charter guarantee of freedom of conscience. I will use this definition to explore the limits of judicial and arbitral conscience. My thesis will better define the limits of a decision-maker’s discretion to tailor decisions to the circumstances in each case.
I am published in law and literature and continue to expand my publications in seventeenth-century literary history, constitutional law, administrative law, and the fusion of public and private law.
Conducting careful, evidence-based research across private, public, and not-for-profit sectors. Creating business, journalist, and academic texts to suit client needs.
Performing copy-editorial reviews, coaching writers – always providing positive criticism.
Providing creative and wide-ranging alternative dispute resolution: investigations, collective agreement revision, and mediation / arbitration. Legal research is, of course, included.

The Canadian approach to conscience is, as the title suggests, confused. Conscience is often only paid scanting attention in judge-made law because its legal and social meaning is obscured by its most common manifestation. Courts adjudicating on issues relating to religious rights, or balancing the rights of a religious person or group against another minority’s interest, often touch on conscience as a facet of religion.
