In his years as a defence attorney, Zaduk has represented dozens of people accused of cultivating marijuana,[3] and accused Deputy Prime Minister Anne McLellan of "[not living] in the real world" and being misleading and incorrect, in attributing marijuana cultivation with the shooting deaths of four RCMP officers in 2005.[4]

In 2002 he withdrew from the Law Society of British Columbia.[5]

From 2005-2007, he was working with the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda to defend former President Pasteur Bizimungu.[6][1]
