The closing of an 80-year-old music store in south Winnipeg opened a door for Darren Sawchuk. The longtime Winnipeg criminal lawyer with a newfound passion for old LPs just happened to be looking for a venue for a new music store.
“LPs are coming back in style,” says Sawchuk. “People are discovering the qualitative difference in the sound of an LP as compared to digital music or iPods.”
Now it’s not that Sawchuk, a past president of the Manitoba chapter of the Criminal Defence Lawyers Association, has any plans to give up practising law after 25 years. He says he views law as a helping profession, particularly in criminal law cases. He notes that he has taken on a large number of legal aid over the years and values the relationships that he has established with his clients.
