Meet the People Who Will Fight for You
I was born and raised in the east end of Hamilton, Ontario, the last of ten children. I graduated from Bishop Ryan High and went on to attend King’s College, an affiliated College of the University of Western Ontario and graduated with my first degree in 1990. I completed my Honours degree at McMaster University in 1991 and went on to complete a Master of Arts degree at the University of Windsor in 1993. While at Windsor University I also went to Teacher’s College and obtained my teaching degree along with my Ontario Teaching Certificate. After achieving these degrees I decided to put theory into practice and took a lead teaching post in ESL in a private school in South Korea. Once I returned from South Korea I attended the University of Alberta law school and graduated in 1998. I returned to Hamilton to practice law and after articling and writing the bar exams, I was called to the bar in 2000.
When I began practicing law my training was largely in the area of insurance defence work. I understand how insurance companies make decisions and the tactics and strategies they employ to reduce or extinguish claims. Working on the inside of this system has greatly benefited those clients I have served over the years. I only help injured people now.
Education beyond the classroom continues to be important to me and I have given formal and informal seminars to lawyers, service providers and other community groups. I also have many other interests including creating stained glass windows, pottery and playing baseball. I also spend part of my time committed to charitable work so that we may improve the lives of the community in which we serve. I am a past board member of Community Living Hamilton, a past representative on the Special Education Advisory Committee for the Catholic Board, and past president of the Hamilton Lawyers’ Club.
