What my clients say

At all times you all were very understanding of my situation, always acted in a very professional way and clearly outlined at all times the action you would take, making very sure I understood the possible outcomes, and other options…

He has also worked as class counsel for plaintiffs in various class proceedings.

Andrew was drawn to law because he had a keen interest in working with clients to help them through difficult times. He practises employment and labour law because of his desire to help people navigate their employment, which is one the most important parts of a person’s life, as well as his desire to support the union movement in Canada.

Andrew is passionate about advocacy and takes a collaborative approach to try and find creative solutions to his clients’ legal problems.

During law school, Andrew was a member of the top ranking Canadian team in the American Bar Association Negotiation Competition, and represented the University of Ottawa in the Labour Law Moot.
