Jason Madden, partner with Pape Salter Teillet LLP of Toronto, has been named by Canadian Lawyer magazine as one of the Top 25 Most Influential in the justice system. Madden was recognized as one of five in the category of Criminal Law/Human Rights for his work on behalf of the Metis people of Canada and his work in the Daniels V. Canada case.  “Inclusion in the Top 25 talks to a level of respect, the ability to influence public opinion, and to help shape the laws of this country and others, contributions to the strength and quality of legal services as well as access to justice, and social and political influence and involvement,” explains the magazine.  One hundred and twenty nominations were received.
