Personal Injury

Any mental anguish or physical injury suffered from the intentional or negligent act of another party gives you a right to damages for your pain and suffering, lost income, rehabilitative costs and other out of pocket expenses. The most common situation we handle is motor vehicle accidents and we know how to examine all the different riders and endorsements of your own insurance as well as the third party’s insurance to cover every angle. We also handle slip and falls, dangerous equipment accidents, falling structures and insurance and disability claims.

We take it on and do not charge or collect fees until you receive the compensation you deserve. What we are looking for is a fair result for all victims and their families from the negligent action of another. We know personal injury and we are result oriented. It the case cannot be settled, we have the ability and the know how to take it to trial.

Labour and Employment

We typically spend more of our waking hours at work than we do at home (or anywhere else). And your job is your primary source of financial stability.

Clarity is key when drafting employment contracts; we draft agreements for employers in retail, professional and service industries. We also advise employees prior to signing new contracts.

Sometimes the employment relationship breaks down and someone is to blame for taking advantage or abusing the rights of others. Come get advice to ensure you are doing the right thing if you are an employer; and that your statutory and common law notice periods are being respected if you are an employee. We handle labour arbitrations in a unionized context. Wrongful dismissals can be a confusing matter for an employee. We work toward a positive result for the client.

Fisheries and Wildlife Offences

The regulation of the commercial fishery has become increasingly complicated. Don’t plead guilty because the prosecutor seems to be offering a good deal and it’s a first offence. Ensure you get clear advice and know your rights. Don’t jeopardize your ability to earn a living.

Charges in recreational hunting and fishery takes all the pleasure out of these activities and can lead to restrictions on holding a license for years and loss of your gear, gun, ATV and even your truck and you can’t get your belongings back after they’ve been ordered away by the court because you never sought our thorough representation.

Estate Planning

Protecting your hard earned assets and ensuring your loved ones are taken care of is much more than simply a will.
