Edwin Boeve grew up in the small town of Cobourg and knew I wanted to be a lawyer since high school. I believe it is not just about “guilt” or “innocence” but whether a person’s rights have been infringed by the police. I also believe in giving individuals who make a mistake a second chance.
Dan Lemaire is a Peterborough local who returned to his home town to article and practice law at Aitken Robertson after earning his J.D. at Queen’s.
