THE ADVOCATE 799
VOL. 77 PART 5 SEPTEMBER 2019
Mike Barrenger has been Crown counsel at the BC Prosecution Service since 2009, after having
spent a brief (but glorious) year as defence counsel with Cobb St. Pierre Lewis.
Catherine Bright works in Abbotsford as Crown counsel at the BC Prosecution Service. She
was previously a graduate student at UVic Law, where she participated in co-op programs in
northeastern B.C. and Iqaluit, Nunavut. She is the winner of the second place award in the
Advocate’s Short Fiction Competition for 2018.
Mollie Clark was called to the bar in May 2019 after articling at Harper Grey, where she is
now an associate working in the family law, insurance law and health law groups. A graduate
of UVic Law, Mollie is a director of the Hutch Fund, a charity dedicated to helping persons
with mental health issues.
Brad Daisley is the manager of communications and general counsel for the Legal Services
Society. He is not to be confused with Bob Daisley, who contributed bass and lyrics to Ozzy
Osbourne throughout the ’80s and ’90s. Nor is he to be confused with American country musician
Brad Paisley, who to our knowledge has no musical affiliation to Ozzy Osbourne.
Daniel Clayton Gallant was called to the bar in January 2019. He is currently practising in
Prince George with Jon M. Duncan Law Corporation. He is both a registered social worker
and a lawyer. In his spare time, Daniel enjoys motorcycles, hunting and fishing.
Kimberly Jakeman is a transplanted Albertan who is a partner at Harper Grey, where she is
the assistant chair of the health law group and has a well-developed conflict resolution practice.
An accomplished athlete, Kimberly enjoys road biking, marathon running and “dabbling”
in triathlons … which we imagine is a bit like “dabbling” in being an astronaut.
Brian McDaniel is associate counsel at Ridgway & Co. in Duncan. Born and raised in Ocean
Falls, Brian attended Shawnigan Lake School, UBC and Osgoode Hall Law School. He has a
broad and wide-ranging practice that includes real estate matters and providing legal advice
and representation to local governments and school boards.
Professor Ted L. McDorman joined the UVic Faculty of Law in 1985 and was promoted to professor
in 2001. His teaching areas include public international law, international trade law,
international ocean and environmental law and private international law. Between 2011 and
2013 he was seconded to the Legal Bureau of the Department of Foreign Affairs and International
Trade headquartered in Ottawa and worked primarily on Arctic-related matters.
Gordon Turriff, Q.C., is a frequent and welcome contributor to these pages. A life bencher
and confessed baseball aficionado, Gordon’s reminiscences of his years at the bar are an
entertaining tome of insight into how the practice of law, professionalism and camaraderie
can weave together a rich and worthwhile tapestry of experience.
