Since 2002 Kevin has almost exclusively restricted his practice to fatalities and catastrophic injuries arising from motor vehicle accidents. He has represented numerous families on fatal accident claims and many individuals who have sustained complete spinal cord injuries, severe brain injuries, burn victims and other unfortunate, catastrophic injury matters, all of which have seen his clients routinely spends months to years in hospitals prior to their discharges to the community or pre-accident homes.
Kevin has acted on many cross-border cases where he has advised his clients to make the correct interprovincial election concerning the accident benefit scheme which will best compensate the families of fatality cases or provide the best rehab and care to those catastrophically injured. In some cases, he has had his clients collect, at the same time, no-fault, accident benefits in two provinces.
Throughout his 26 years of practicing law, Kevin has conducted numerous trials, hearings and appeals. He is most proud of not only serving deserving victims of serious motor vehicle accidents, but that he routinely each year provides up to no less than 500 hours of pro bono legal services to deserving individuals.
