Insurance Defence, Personal Injury, Mediation

David is a Mediator and Lawyer who graduated from the University of Toronto with a degree in Economics and from the University of Victoria Law School in Victoria, British Columbia. He was called to the Bar in Ontario in 1995.

David has been practicing Civil Litigation since graduating from Law School in 1993, and has gained extensive experience in the areas of personal injury and insurance litigation, commercial litigation, estates litigation, real estate litigation and professional negligence, with an emphasis on personal injury and insurance litigation, including claims in tort, bodily injury, accident benefits, medical malpractice, sexual abuse, as well as insurance products liability and coverage issues.

David’s experience provides him with a valuable insight into the perspective of the other side, and facilitates a speedy, cost-effective resolution of claims. He is distinguished by his ability to take on and turn around even the most challenging cases in situations where previous counsel have been unable to achieve any results, thereby demonstrating that David’s dedication, attention to detail and emphasis on quality work achieves the best possible result for his clients.

David has appeared before the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, the Divisional Court, Ontario Court of Appeal and the Financial Services Commission of Ontario, having appeared at the trial, arbitration and appellate levels.

David is also interested in music and has been practicing music much longer than law (since 1972). In that regard, he is a member of the Songwriter’s Association of Canada and Nashville Songwriter’s Association and can occasionally be heard performing music at various GTA singer-songwriter venues and with his roots rock band, myspace.com/littlejackiewright.
