Frederick Wood PC joins DSF

Devry Smith Frank LLP is pleased to announce that the law firm of Frederick Wood PC has joined our firm effective January 1, 2016. Frederick Wood and his paralegal, Arthur Wood will continue their practice in our Whitby office located at 209 Dundas Street East, Suite 401, Whitby Ontario, L1N 7H8.

We are pleased to be able to offer the clients of Frederick Wood PC access to DSF’s full range of legal services.


Devry Smith Frank LLP (“DSF”) is excited to announce the opening of its new full-service location in Whitby, Ontario. We are looking forward to offering legal services to our clients in Ontario’s Central East Region.

DSF’s Whitby office will grow our presence in Durham Region and expand DSF’s services further east along the 401 and 407 Hwy corridor. Nearby areas that will benefit from DSF’s new location in Durham include Ajax, Brock, Clarington, Oshawa, Pickering, Port Perry, Scugog, Uxbridge, and Whitby.

The services offered at DSF’s Whitby office will encompass a full range of legal services for individuals and businesses. Since 1964, DSF has grown from its roots in Toronto’s Don Mills area to a full-practice firm with over 50 lawyers, mediators, paralegals, law clerks and supporting staff.

DSF is no stranger to Durham, having had a presence in the region since 2013. A large number of DSF’s team members are proud Durham residents from Whitby, Oshawa, Ajax, Uxbridge and the surrounding areas. One of those team members is Kelli Preston, a DSF commercial and estates litigator, who has lived in Durham for the past 16 years: “I’ve lived in Toronto, the west end, and Scarborough, but Whitby is the place I call home.”

In addition to being a lawyer, Kelli is a mother of three, but that has not stopped her from giving back to the Durham community. She serves as a board member of the Durham Children’s Aid Foundation and has raised funds for Hearts for Durham, a volunteer organization dedicated to promoting community initiatives in the region.

When asked what makes the area special, Kelli was quick to respond. “People in Durham Region have local pride. They’re proud of where they’re from.”

The Whitby office can be reached by phone at 1(289) 638-3171 or toll free at 1(866) 474-1700. It is located at 209 Dundas Street East, Suite 401, Whitby, ON L1N 7H8. There are designated free customer parking spots at the rear of the building. We hope you will join us in welcoming the newest DSF office to the Durham community.



Third Annual NRVMS/DSF Threshold Conference Acquired Brain Injury- April 13, 2016

Devry Smith Frank LLP is participating in its third annual “Threshold Conference” fundraiser on Wednesday April 13, 2016. The proceeds of this year’s conference will benefit the work of the Ontario Brain Injury Association.

The fundraiser is in the format of a Continuing Education/Professional Development programme targeted to members of the legal, insurance and health care industries. There will be a number of expert speakers addressing issues relating to acquired brain injury. The programme will also include a mock trial involving an accident victim who has sustained an acquired brain injury and whether the injury qualifies as a threshold injury under Ontario’s car insurance legislation. At the mock trial, an expert neurologist will testify on behalf of the accident victim and will be cross-examined by the defendant’s insurer’s lawyer.

The programme qualifies for 5.5 CPD hours with the Law Society of Upper Canada.

For more information please visit the NRVMS/DSF Threshold Conference Website.
