À propos de Christopher

Christopher est originaire de la région de la capitale nationale. Christopher communique efficacement en français et en anglais et peut servir ses clients dans une langue ou l’autre. En tant qu’avocat, Christopher se spécialise dans la revendication des droits des personnes ayant subi des blessures, ainsi que de leurs familles. Il prend le temps de comprendre à fond tous les aspects de la cause de ses clients, son but étant de les aider à refaire leur vie. Il représente des gens faisant des réclamations suite à des blessures ou de l’incapacité à long terme découlant d’accidents de la route, de chutes et autres, ainsi que de situations de négligence médicale et d’homicide délictuel. Sa formation en science joue également un rôle dans sa capacité à comprendre pleinement les blessures et réclamations de ses clients.

Christopher croit fermement en l’importance de s’assurer que ses clients sont bien préparés et informés en ce qui concerne les attentes de leur réclamation avant même que le litige commence.

Christopher porte aussi une attention particulière à aider les québécois, ayant subi des blessures en Ontario, afin de naviguer leurs droits entre les deux juridictions. De plus, il est professeur à temps partiel à la Faculté de droit de l’Université d’Ottawa et enseigne le cours de droit des assurances.
