Mark Gruchy, Associate

Mark Gruchy

Mark is the head of the firm’s Criminal Law Practice Group. He has defended clients at every level of court in Newfoundland and Labrador. He is particularly interested in the law flowing from the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and has been involved in substantial litigation involving the Charter.

He is a member of the Law Society of Newfoundland and Labrador and is the President of the Canadian Mental Health Association’s Newfoundland Chapter.

Mark became a criminal defense attorney out of a desire to personally combat the evils of stigma and the effects of social inequity associated with the criminal law process. Mark firmly believes mercy and compassion have historically distinguished the operation of the Canadian criminal justice system from its neighbours and is committed to doing his part to ensure this remains the case.
