ABOUT STUFFCO LAW
Stuffco Law is an association of two independent lawyers, Mr. Phillip R. Stuffco, Q.C. and Mr. Jordan Stuffco. However, they are a father and son team with nearly 45 years of combined legal experience, both inside and outside the courtroom. Both Phillip and Jordan believe in providing timely, effective, and straightforward legal advice to ensure their client’s best interests are always protected. Phillip and Jordan believe integrity is fundamental to all aspects of their legal practice.
Jordan’s legal practice is currently focused on criminal defence. By way of background, Jordan graduated from one of Canada’s top law schools, the University of Toronto, Faculty of Law in 2003. During this time, Jordan was an active participant in a myriad academic and social organizations. He was an assistant editor of the University of Toronto Indigenous Law Journal, an internationally circulated legal publication focusing on Aboriginal legal issues. He also volunteered on a regular basis with Student Legal Services Clinic, assisting the indigent population of downtown Toronto with their criminal matters on a pro-bono basis. He was also the recipient of an academic scholarship while attending the University of Toronto and attained enviable academic achievements while there. Jordan completed his articles at one of Vancouver’s premiere litigation firms, Lawson Lundell. While there, Jordan was trained in all aspects of commercial and civil litigation. Jordan is a member of both the Law Societies of Alberta and British Columbia.
Between 2004 to 2008, Jordan worked out of Fort McMurray, Alberta with the well-established law firm of Campbell & Cooper. During this time, he focused his practice on criminal law, where he became immersed in a strenuous and high-volume criminal practice ranging from impaired driving matters to serious sexual assault jury trials. Jordan has been lead counsel on extremely serious matters such as multi-kilo drug trafficking cases, serious sexual assaults, murder and attempted murder and firearms related offences. In the Fall of 2008, Jordan joined the law firm of Davidson Gregory Danyluik & Stuffco. During this time, Jordan further developed his criminal litigation skills under the direct mentorship of that law firm’s senior and highly respected law partners. In the Spring of 2012, Jordan branched out on his own to establish “Stuffco Law.”
Currently, Jordan is on the executive board with the Appeals Branch for Legal Aid Alberta, as well as an active executive member of the Criminal Trial Lawyers Association of Alberta. Jordan speaks Mandarin Chinese and often assists the greater Chinese community here in the Province of Alberta. Jordan invites all potential clients to contact him to discuss their legal matters so that potential solutions can be discussed.
