Biography

Dino McLaughlin has been with Field Law since February of 1990. He spent his first years at the Bar in general practice with emphasis on criminal and general litigation. His main practice areas for the past several years has been civil litigation, with an emphasis on health law, advising local pension authorities and practicing criminal law acting primarily for teachers.

The advent of class actions in Alberta has been an area of great concern to the health care system. Dino has been involved at the forefront of defending the initial cohort of claims, and with the notable exception of the elders class action, the team has been very successful in preventing the certification of the first wave of class litigation.

This has been vital experience which will be important as the plaintiff's bar becomes more sophisticated.

Dino has been an instructor of a number of courses offered by the Legal Education Society of Alberta, taught Bar Admission Courses in Family Law and given lectures to various classes of the Faculty of Law and the Faculty of Education.

Dino was involved with a number of charitable organizations as a volunteer including the Boyle McCauley Health Centre, the Bissell Centre, the Norwood Community Service Centre (Board Member), and the Edmonton Inner City Housing Society.
