Who We Are
They say that practice makes perfect. They are wrong. Only perfect practice make perfect. Experience alone does not make a good lawyer. To become good personal injury lawyers we took on the toughest claims, argued novel points of law, and we looked forward to engaging with good defence lawyers. We have been certified as specialists by the Law Society of Ontario. We didn’t just put in our time. We challenged ourselves. And it shows where it is most important – it shows in the results we obtain for our clients. It shows in the personal injury claims we resolve. It shows in the construction issues we resolve. It shows in the respect we get from our opponents and their insurer clients.
