After personally experiencing the adjustments that a family encounters when a loved one suffers a brain injury, I understand the importance of having good legal representation. It is this unique perspective that has driven me to become an advocate for injured victims.
Kaitlyn’s practice is devoted to personal injury litigation, long term disability claims, dog bite cases, accident benefits claims and other disability and insurance litigation. She understands – both personally and legally – all aspects of the devastation caused when someone falls victim to serious personal injury. Kaitlyn has first-hand experience with brain injury as her father was diagnosed with one following a serious assault. Here is Kaitlyn’s story.
It is this understanding that motivates Kaitlyn to be an effective advocate for her clients and to protect their rights. She represents her clients in court, on Motions, Trials and Appeals before the courts and administrative tribunals.
In 2014, she was appointed as a director of the Brain Injury Association – Peterborough Region (BIAPR) and is now the President of this organization. In 2016, she was selected as the editor in chief of the Long-Term Disability Section of the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association newsletter.
Kaitlyn was recently awarded the prestigious Martin Wunder, Q.C. Outstanding New Lawyer Award by the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association (OTLA) in recognition of her active commitment to improving the legal system and its responsiveness to vulnerable plaintiffs. She is also a published author for Court Practices.
