We are a thriving boutique litigation firm headquartered in the heart of Weston Mount-Dennis. We are well-known for winning high-profile Human Rights Cases including labour & employment, insurance litigation, civil rights and social activism cases for both plaintiffs and defendants. Our firm is well-regarded within the insurance industry for representing children and families in the aftermath of severe accidents resulting in a fatality or serious medical injuries. We aggressively pursue litigation against insurance companies to ensure our clients get access to the legal system to obtain the medical care and compensation they deserve.
We have regularly accepted all cases with a strong social justice component to them and consistently obtain wins on behalf of our plaintiffs. Our knowledge is frequently called upon by industry stakeholders and the media alike including the Toronto Star, CBC, CTV, City News, Globe and Mail, National Post, Toronto Sun and a wide cross-section of community-run publications. We regularly give back to the community through pro bono work and donations to charitable causes.
