We never act for insurance companies - our job is to hold them accountable to our clients, whether it’s a longterm disability (LTD) claim, or any other type of insurance contract.

We can help when insurance companies break their promises - whether it's about Longterm Disability (LTD), Short-Term Disability (STD), or other types of insurance, like car insurance, property insurance or life insurance. We never act for insurance companies - our job is to hold them accountable to our clients.

Canadian courts have told insurance companies over and over that it is their duty to treat their customers with the utmost good faith. Unfortunately, a lot of insurers still don't get it - they're great at collecting premiums, but not so good at paying benefits. Instead of being there for you when you need them, it’s not uncommon for insurers to deny and delay legitimate claims.

If you become disabled, you shouldn’t have to fight to get the disability insurance benefits that you or your employer have been paying for - that’s where we come in. Our job is to make sure your insurance company lives up to its side of the bargain and provides you with the benefits you are entitled to.

Sometimes group insurance protection can be cut off when an employee is wrongfully dismissed. Our expertise in both insurance litigation and employment law powerfully equips us to fight for all of an employee's rights in these situations.

Dermot Nolan has been holding insurance companies to account on behalf of our clients for over 40 years. He is a founder and past president of the Ontario Trial Lawyers' Association (OTLA) - Canada's largest association of plaintiff trial lawyers. He continues to be a leader in the fight for fair insurance legislation in the face of the manipulations of Ontario’s powerful insurance industry lobby.

Franco Ciarlo is a director of the Hamilton Medical-Legal Society and a past president of OTLA's young lawyers' division. He is skilled at guiding our clients through the maze of Ontario's ever-changing car insurance and no-fault benefits systems.

Our LTD insurance work is bolstered by the experience and dedication of Ned Nolan and Paul Di Clemente who have helped numerous employees and insured people collect Longterm and Short-Term Disability benefits when insurance companies have improperly denied or canceled their benefits.
