Kristen Dulysh began her work in the criminal justice system when she completed an internship at the Ontario Correctional Institute while she was earning her degree in Criminology. Working closely with an incarcerated population in a rehabilitative setting allowed her to understand early on that no person should be defined by their past mistakes. She is now an associate and is determined to give her clients their best defence to the charges they are facing.
Kristen graduated with high distinction with her Bachelor of Arts with Honours from the University of Toronto. She then attended Osgood Hall Law School where she obtained her Juris Doctorate. During law school, Kristen was a case worker at the Innocence Project where she assisted with an application to the Criminal Conviction Review Group (CCRG) for ministerial review. She also completed an internship at the Ontario Court of Justice in Brampton where she shadowed provincial court judges and provided research assistance.
Before joining Derstine Penman, Kristen was a summer student at Mirza Kwok Criminal Defence Lawyers. She completed her articles of clerkship at Alan D. Gold Professional Corporation. As a student, Kristen was able to assist with a number complex cases in the Ontario Court of Justice, Superior Court of Justice and Court of Appeal.
