Paul Doroshenko believes that his clients should be fully informed about their case as it progresses. He advances the best interests of his clients.

Paul Doroshenko has been the leading opponent of the British Columbia DUI legislation concerning IRP Immediate Roadside Prohibitions. He has delivered and chaired many presentations to the BC Trial Lawyers Association and the Canadian Bar Association on topics of DUI law in BC and how to handle hit and run investigations. He co-authored a paper on the Latest Developments in the IRP Immediate Roadside Prohibition Regime. He has presented to lawyers on Canadian DUI Law at seminars in California, Illinois, Quebec, Alberta and British Columbia. He is often sought after for comment on the developments in DUI law in BC. Because Paul and the lawyers at Acumen law knew so many secrets about the IRP scheme, the Government sued his office and lawyers to keep them from using these secrets to defend their clients. As well, he has been a regular commentator on local and national news programs.
