Notice re: COVID-19 Public Health Advisory

We have implemented the following measures to ensure the health and safety of our lawyers, staff and clients during the current COVID-19 public health crisis.

  • Lawyers are all able to work from home and some have chosen to do so. Each of our lawyers and staff members has confirmed that they have not traveled outside of Canada within the last 14 days. Currently, none are experiencing symptoms of ill-health (particularly cough, sniffles, fever or difficulty breathing). If they do experience such symptoms or if they are in contact with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19, they will self-report and self-quarantine in their homes.
  • We are asking all clients to self-quarantine if that they have been in close contact with someone who has recently traveled internationally or if they are experiencing cough, sniffles, fever, or difficulty breathing or have had any contact with a person diagnosed with Covid-19.
  • We will ensure that cleaning and disinfecting is done frequently. We have removed all magazines and newspapers from our waiting area. In addition, we have added hand-sanitizer throughout the office.
  • All client visits to our office must be by prior-appointment. This may be arranged by calling the lawyer directly or by calling our reception at 306-244-2201. If you require emergency services after normal business hours, please call 306-986-4273
  • Thank you for your assistance and understanding.

Andrew Mason's Publications

Continuing Legal Education

Long recognized in the legal community as a leading innovator in the use of technology in the practice of law, Andrew Mason has promoted the use of electronic documents in civil actions. He developed a system for electronic appeals that has been adopted by the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal. He has made several presentations to lawyers on the use of computers and information technology. Here are two of his papers:
Legal Resources and the Internet - December 1999
Producing, Managing and Using Electronic Documents in a Law Firm - June 2001.

Criminal Law

Andrew Mason has been an active member of the Saskatoon Criminal Defence Lawyers Association for many years. He has organized and presented several seminars at Canadian Bar Association meetings on criminal law subjects since 1985. In 2002 he presented a paper on the subject of Preliminary Inquiries at a Saskatchewan Legal Education Society (SKLESI) conference on criminal law issues

Andrew acted as defence counsel on the first case in Saskatchewan in which DNA evidence was used. See his paper on DNA Evidence presented at a SKLESI televised seminar in 2009.

Expert Evidence

Andrew Mason's undergraduate background in physics and mathematics has helped him handle expert evidence in many civil and criminal trials and appeals over the past 35+ years. He has had an ongoing interest in solving legal puzzles and identifying where cases have gone wrong.

Mr. Mason has researched and written about certain aspects of the Assassination of John F. Kennedy. He has examined the evidence relating to the sequence of shots that struck President Kennedy and Governor John Connally on November 22, 1963. In his paper dealing with the "Magic Bullet" theory, he identifies significant discrepancies between the Warren Commission's Single Bullet Theory and the evidence and explains why the theory cannot be correct. While many writers have attacked the single bullet theory in order to promote conspiracy theories, Mr. Mason is the first author to put forward an explanation that does not imply that the shots were fired from more than one gun.
