Simon has successfully represented people who suffer from soft tissue injuries, orthopaedic injuries, spinal cord injuries, brain injuries and psychological trauma in both the Provincial and Supreme Courts of British Columbia in cases that involve complex liability and causation issues. These cases involve motor vehicle collisions, dental negligence, occupier liability or trip/slip and falls, assaults, boating accidents and elevator injuries.

What Simon enjoys the most about his work is getting to know his clients and leveling the playing field between large insurance companies and the individuals who need his help.

Nick graduated from the University of Alberta Faculty of Law where he obtained his J.D. (with Distinction). Prior to attending law school, Nick obtained a B.A. in Criminology while at the same time working throughout the lower mainland for a tree company engaged in the removal of hazardous trees. Since a young age Nick has understood the value of hard work – in his former life Nick has been employed in the carpentry trade, the restaurant industry, and spent time sorting lumber on the “green chain” at a lumber mill.

During law school, Nick earned various awards, including the George H. Steer Scholarship, the Alberta Law Foundation Undergraduate Scholarship, the W. Bernie Kelly Q.C. Memorial Prize, the Maritime Law Book Prize in Professional Responsibility, the Norman J. Pollock Q.C. Prize in Advocacy, and the A.I. Shumiatcher Memorial Prize in Advocacy.

After law school Nick served as a Judicial Law Clerk with the B.C. Supreme Court where he clerked to six sitting Justices of the Court. Following the completion of his clerkship, Nick worked as a lawyer at a national law firm in Vancouver and then for years at a plaintiff’s personal injury law firm in Vancouver. It was through experiencing a variety of different areas of the law that Nick came to realize his passion for helping injured people. Nick works only for those individuals injured due to the fault of others.

Community volunteerism is important to Nick. During law school Nick formed the Faculty of Law Youth Mentorship Program, a group which worked closely with the local branch of Big Brothers and Big Sisters. Nick currently serves on the Board of Governors for Trial Lawyers Association of B.C., having previously served on TLABC’s Executive. Nick also serves as a contributor for the Law Society of B.C. to the PLTC bar admission course’s civil practice materials.

Nick lives in North Vancouver with his wife and young daughter and son. When not assisting his clients, Nick tries to remain active, is an avid sports fan and enjoys spending time with family and friends.
