Drew has had lengthy, meaningful experience working as defence counsel, and has a history of novel and innovative arguments in pursuit of justice for his clients. His work has a public defender has exposed him to all aspects of the justice system, and all the many different people who are touched by it. He has volunteered at the Regina pro bono legal clinic for more than six years, and has given several talks and seminars to colleagues and students about developments in the law and practice.

He has represented clients at all levels of court in Saskatchewan, and has extensive experience with major litigation, including dangerous and long-term offender proceedings and proceedings where mental health defences are prominent. Drew joined Pfefferle Law in 2023 because he wanted to represent a broad array of clients, and focus on bringing exceptional legal defence to the citizens of Regina and surrounding areas. An outstanding criminal defence team should include lawyers in both of Saskatchewan’s largest centres. Drew lives in Regina, and spends his free time with family and many lifelong friends.
