About Walter Kosteckyj

Before attending law school, Walter became a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. He distinguished himself in training by achieving the highest graduating marks in both physical and academic subjects. He was also selected as valedictorian of his graduating troop. Walter subsequently worked as an operational policeman and got involved in all aspects of police work. This investigative background has been invaluable to helping prepare and present his client’s cases.

Thereafter, Walter attended law school at the University of Saskatchewan where he also distinguished himself, particularly in the subjects of Evidence, Contracts and Advocacy. He was chosen to represent the University of Saskatchewan at the Gale Cup Moot, which is the premier advocacy competition for law schools in Canada. He was once again chosen as class valedictorian by his classmates.

Upon graduation Walter was one of two students recommended for the position of law clerk to the Chief Justice of Saskatchewan. Walter was selected by the Chief Justice for the position.

Walter has handled cases at every level of court in British Columbia. He has also handled cases at the Queen’s Bench and Appeals levels in Saskatchewan, as well as handling cases in Ontario and Alberta.

He has handled numerous high profile precedent setting cases. Although he is best known for his work in the Case of Robert Dziekanski, he is also well known for his work in numerous other cases including Personal Injury and Criminal.

Although Walter has a strong support staff, he handles all important aspects of a client’s case personally. At Oceanside Law it is the firm philosophy that a client’s best interests come first.
