Lives can be profoundly altered at times and in ways that people least expect. As an advocate, I understand that each of my clients has an inspiring story of survival, one that needs to be told with compassion and integrity, to achieve justice for the harms caused by others.

For over 20 years, my practice has been restricted to advocacy for people who have suffered life-altering harms, including serious injuries, birth trauma, loss of a loved one, and more recently, privacy and human rights violations. The three principles of my practice are “Service, Integrity, Results TM“.

I am honoured to be regularly selected by my peers for inclusion in Best Lawyers in Canada in the field of Personal Injury Litigation, as well as being Lexpert Ranked as Consistently Recommended as a leading practitioner of the Personal Injury Bar. I am also a Certified Specialist in Civil Litigation. Other recognition includes the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association Women’s Caucus Award (2011) and the American Association for Justice International Trial Lawyer Leadership Award (2010).

I have a strong belief in giving back both to the profession and the community. I am a Past President of the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association (2009-10); a former Governor on the Board of Governors for the American Association for Justice (2006-2013); past director for the Advocates Society (2012-2015); and a frequent speaker in the areas of personal injury litigation, advocacy and practice management at various legal associations in Canada and the United States. As part of my community involvement, I am a cycling advocate and Past Chair of the Share the Road Cycling Coalition of Ontario. Over the years I have also been involved in many community organizations.

When I am not advocating for my clients, you might find me out cycling, heading to the opera or a classical music concert, or doing photography with my two retired racing greyhounds, Rene and Bryn, at my side.

The expertise, support and direction that Judith provided for our family at a very difficult time in our lives was invaluable. We found ourselves in a situation where we had been 'pushed into a corner' and felt that no one was listening. Uncertain as to our next steps, we retained Judith as our legal counsel.

Judith always made us feel that she had time for us, followed through, and provided a voice that turned our situation around, resulting in an expedited and positive resolution. More importantly, she took the time to listen to us, understanding our situation and the sources of our concerns and frustrations. We always felt that she was on our side every step of the way. Judith turned our situation around, and got us the results that we wanted.

I was very pleased with the outcome of my case. I was always treated with respect and compassion by all of the staff. Everyone understood that I had been in a traumatic experience and that my pain (physical and mental) was real. I would recommend Judith and her team to anyone because she handles every case like it is the most important.

I wish to express my grateful appreciation for all you and your associates have done on my behalf. These last 4 years have been very painful and difficult and the pain continues... but, this financial settlement provides me with some much needed resources with which to continue healing. Judith, your kindness, expert guidance and compassion has given me hope.

The process has left my wife and I with the greatest feeling that if we ever, and I mean ever, had to put our lives in someone's hands and have them fight for us, it is Judith and her team.
K & K.R.

The quality of service I received was great! The team working on my file treated me very well and always resolved any issues I had quickly. The team always gave me good advice and made me feel at ease. I was treated with respect and kindness. Judith has done a great job for me and provided me with great service providers.

Honest, diligent, supportive...this team helped change my life, literally.
