What my clients say

“I wanted to say thank you for everything you did...I had absolutely no idea what to do when presented with the Statement of Claim. Your explanations of what it all really meant and your advice were extremely helpful to me, and I might not be in the position of knowing that everything will be taken care of if it had not been for your help.”


Jon is an associate lawyer at Nelligan Law and a member of our Litigation team.

He is passionate about helping members of his community overcome some of the most complex and stressful situations in their lives.

Before pursuing law, Jon completed a Master of Science in Neuroscience at Carleton University. He left the sciences to pursue a career that allowed him to solve complex problems and at the same time, advocate for others.

Before joining Nelligan Law, Jon Articled at a medium-sized litigation boutique. He has diverse experience having assisted on many litigation matters, including construction, corporate/commercial, property and real estate, employment, personal injury, and plaintiff-side insurance/investment financial loss claims. Jon has appeared before the Ontario Small Claims Court, Superior Court of Justice, and Ontario Court of Justice.

Outside of work, Jon fancies himself a film and television aficionado, and whenever he isn’t lamenting the existence of a fourth Indiana Jones film, he can likely be found playing the guitar, feeding his three cats, or shopping with his mom.

When I meet with a personal injury client for the first time, the question I hear most often is: "Thanks for meeting with me, but how much money am I going to get?" Although I can provide you a range of expected damages early in your case, I cannot assess your damages until we consult an expert to provide me with an opinion as to your prognosis and needs.
