Daniel J. Song

Daniel Song

Daniel practices criminal law in Alberta and British Columbia, and is an active member of the law societies of both provinces. He travels regularly each month between Vancouver and Edmonton to appear in all levels of court in both provinces.

He was called to the bar in Alberta in 2007 and became a member of the British Columbia bar in 2010. He currently manages the Vancouver office of Sprake Song & Konye.

Daniel has broad experience defending clients faced with serious and complex charges, including murder, attempted murder, criminal organization offences, conspiracies, kidnapping, extortion, drug trafficking, firearms offences, and large-scale fraud.

Daniel has also established a reputation for conducting appeals against conviction and sentence and responding to Crown appeals, appearing regularly in the Court of Appeal of Alberta and the Court of Appeal of British Columbia. He has also appeared and argued in the Supreme Court of Canada.

Of Daniel’s first appearance in the Court of Appeal of Alberta (as an articling student), Justice Côté wrote, “Mr. Song did an excellent job in his written and oral presentations, one which few lawyers of 10 years’ standing or more would be capable.”

After being raised in Edmonton, Daniel pursued a degree in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Toronto before eventually moving to Vancouver to complete a B.A. in English Literature at the University of British Columbia, where he was awarded the Roy Daniells Memorial Prize for the top essay written in the English Department.

Thereafter, Daniel attended the Faculty of Law at the University of British Columbia. During his second year of studies, he co-authored “When Race Matters in Sentencing: R. v. Ramsay and R. v. Hamilton” with Professor Christine Boyle QC, which was published in the Criminal Reports and subsequently cited in case law.

He has previously been quoted in publications such as The Lawyers Weekly, and is currently pursuing his Masters in Law.
