What we do

We help people solve what are often the toughest problems they’ve ever faced. We have taken countless civil, criminal and regulatory cases from start to finish. We’re never afraid to go to trial or a hearing to fight for our clients, but we also know that trials are stressful, time consuming and expensive — so we work tirelessly to wrestle great settlements from the other side wherever we can.

About Justin and Owen

Tort litigation

We have experience acting for both plaintiffs and defendants in many kinds of tort litigation. This experience includes bringing and defending actions for professional negligence involving physicians, accountants, real estate agents, lawyers, and other professionals, acting in cases involving defamation, and litigating property torts such as nuisance or trespass caused by neighbours, contractors, and others.

Most importantly, we are familiar with the complexities of tort litigation which include understanding how to marshal the right kind of evidence (expert or otherwise) to prosecute or defend a tort action and how to handle cases in which actions for torts are being concurrently brought with actions for breach of contract.
