Darryl Denny

Acted as pro bono counsel on behalf of a recipient of social assistance who stood to have his welfare benefits reduced significantly.

Relying on Stinchcombe principles and its application to administrative tribunals, among others, the tribunal ordered full disclosure. In the end, the additional information proved useful in avoiding a reduction in social assistance.
