About Chris

Chris was called to the bar in 1993, and practices Personal Injury Litigation—Chris helps people who have been injured get their lives back on track.  Early on, Chris recognized that insurance companies have a lot of resources to fight paying claims.  In order for injured people to get justice, they need a strong knowledgeable lawyer, and a law firm with the depth of experience and resources to see the case from the beginning to a successful conclusion.

At Siskinds, we have both the people power, and the economic power to take on the insurance industry.  That is why Chris moved to Siskinds in 2000.  This move allowed Chris to focus on representing individuals who have been injured in car collisions and other personal injury situations.  There are really 2 distinct parts to this:  first, advocating for you to get the medical and rehabilitation assistance you need, and getting it funded either through insurance or some other funding source; and second, making sure you have the resources you need to have a good quality of life, despite the injuries.

Since coming to Siskinds, Chris has developed a particular interest and expertise in representing clients with traumatic brain injuries, and other serious injuries.   Chris is a member of a number of brain injury associations and regularly travels to conferences across the province and internationally to keep up to date on the latest developments in the field of brain injury.

Chris is also a member of the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association, and the American Association of Justice (American Trial Lawyers Association).

Whether your injury is from a car collision, slip and fall, road icing, products liability, or a disability insurance claim, Chris and the team at Siskinds can get results for you.

Education

Western University

"We are fortunate enough to have a publicly funded health care system.  Unfortunately that funding largely stops at the hospital doors.  After a serious injury,  you will need far more care than is provided by the publicly funded system.  Our role is  to see that our clients get the funding they need to continue their recovery and to secure their future after a serious injury.  Without assistance, many people never recover to their full potential, and live lives of poverty after serious injuries.  With our assistance, the chances of recovery can be optimized, and futures can be made financially secure."
