Stephen Brophy completed a Bachelors of Engineering at Carleton University in 2010 and a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Alberta in 2017. He went on to complete his articles under Kent J Teskey, QC, before being called to the bar in 2018.
Prior to pursuing a legal career, Stephen served as an Engineer Officer in the Canadian Army. He served with 4 Engineer Service Regiment and 1 Combat Engineer Regiment and trained at the Canadian Forces School of Military Engineer. As an Engineer Officer, Stephen had the privilege of commanding troops and participating in high-readiness training and other military operations. While criminal law is exciting, Stephen sometimes misses building bridges and blowing things up! He continues to serve as a member of the Primary Reserves.
While at law school, Stephen was involved with Student Legal Services. He assisted people with limited-means with summary conviction matters. He was also employed as a summer student at the Edmonton Rural and Regional Response Crown Prosecutor’s Office, where he learned about the other side of criminal law.
In 2017, Stephen was awarded the Norman J Pollock, QC, Prize in Advocacy by the University of Alberta Faculty of Law for his superior academic achievement in the advocacy course. Stephen looks forward to being your advocate, and to leading you through the often-difficult and stressful experience of being charged with an offence.
