Matthew Douglas


There is no better motivator than the knowledge that the work we do has a meaningful impact on someone’s life – often at a time when they need justice the most.

Matthew is an Associate at the firm, practising in all areas of personal injury law and advising clients with motor vehicle accident, slip and fall, and bicycle accident claims, and also working with the firm’s class action and mass tort teams.

Matthew is a graduate of the Canadian & American Dual JD program at the University of Windsor and the University of Detroit Mercy. While studying law in Detroit, he interned at the Veterans Law Clinic and represented many injured or disabled veterans who were appealing compensation claims before the Board of Veterans’ Appeals or the US Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. He has also represented clients in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice and the Licensing Appeal Tribunal.

While studying law, Matthew was also elected to serve on the Student Law Society’s governing board as Co-Chair of the Equity & Diversity Committee at the University of Windsor’s Faculty of Law.
