Problem Solving

Most problems can be solved with communication and calm logical analysis.

I don't believe lawsuits solve all problems. They can create more problems than they are worth. Litigation is very expensive and almost nobody will recover 100% of their legal expenses after successfully winning a lawsuit.

I will consider any file in Ontario, depending on the circumstances.

Some of the problems I specialize in solving:

  • Insurance disputes including fire loss, water damage, travel insurance, car theft, long term disability, critical illness insurance, and life insurance;
  • Serious personal Injury including: motor vehicle injuries, bicycle accidents, slip and falls, dog bites, assaults, and professional negligence;
  • I assist with attending examinations under oath, completing a proof of loss, or issuing a statement of claim to protect a limitation period;
  • Employment disputes including wrongful dismissals and severance payments; and
  • Commercial litigation

I try to keep things simple for my clients. So I answer questions up front. My hourly rate is between $350.00 and $500.00 per hour.

I am usually retained on a contingency fee based basis. Most contingency agreements are between 25 and 33% plus hst and disbursements. Any costs awarded by a Court are returned to the client to offset my fee.

I provide customized retainers to fit the needs of my clients. If I'm only needed for one part but not all of a dispute, I'm happy to make an arrangement that works for you (this is called a limited retainer).

I'm here to help. Contact me if you have questions.

Speaking, interviewing, and teaching

I am actively teaching, speaking, and appearing at events and on the news. Please contact me for opportunities. I try to make myself available even on a last minute basis for morning, evening, or holiday appearances.

I have experience appearing on live TV, teaching in classrooms, and creating original content.
