Ms. Cronin has practiced criminal law in B.C. since she was called to the Bar 20 years ago. In that time, she has represented clients from different ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds in courts across the province. Ms. Cronin is widely regarded as a leading advocate for Indigenous peoples throughout B.C. and Canada.
