M. Joseph Redman


Practice Description

For Joey, the interaction between citizens and the state is the heart of public law. Joey’s practice includes administrative law, municipal and planning law, professional regulation and civil litigation.


Joey’s interest in public law sprang from an early interest in politics and government. He has a deep understanding of the policy environment built on his undergraduate studies in political science followed by practical experience working in the Alberta legislature, serving first as a legislative assistant and later as an assistant to a Minister of the Crown.

Joey is a committed leader and participant in his community, including board work and volunteering for community events in his home town of Calgary, proudly wearing a cowboy hat during Stampede Week. His community commitment continued into Law School where he served as VP – External for the Law Students’ Association, Student Representative on the Law Faculty Council and Faculty Hiring Committee, Captain of the Law School Rugby Team, Student Mentor & First Year Moot Coach, and Student Member of the Graduation Committee for his graduating class.

In His Own Words

Before coming to the Law, I worked in the executive branch of government. In my current practice, I have the opportunity to see the practical impact of government on individuals, professions, municipalities and corporations. I enjoy working with small towns and municipalities around the Province, dealing with people that are “on the ground” working to build their communities and who appreciate our assistance in that work. I see my practice being focused on the interaction between the state and individuals and have developed an interest in the regulation of municipal elections.

Away From The Office

Joey is an intrepid traveller, having been to over 30 countries, including Mongolia, Laos and rural Peru. He loves experiencing other cultures, food and ways of life, and forms of government. When he travels, he will always take the time to pose for a cheesy photo in front of a state capital.

Joey is a keen rugby player and coach. He is also an avid cyclist and currently counts three bikes (road, mountain, hybrid) in his personal inventory. To feed his geek side, he enjoys a bi-weekly game of Dungeons and Dragons with friends.
