A Unique Skill Set
Chad Haggerty has spent most of his life working in the criminal justice system. In his mid-30’s he chose to go to law school so that he could help the people that needed the benefit of his experiences most – people accused of crimes.
Before attending law school, Chad had a 17-year career in the RCMP. Far too often, he saw people accused of crimes being treated harshly and unfairly. It was during this time that Chad grew to respect the defence lawyers he encountered. His work left him with an understanding that many of those charged with offences were dealing with the trauma they had suffered in their lives.
After completing his undergrad degree in Criminal Justice with honours, he obtained his Juris Doctor from the University of Calgary Faculty of Law in 2019. He completed his articles with John Hooker in Calgary.
