• Why Michael

    You’ve been hurt once. Don’t get hurt twice.

    The future can be a scary place after an injury. Since 1976, Michael Lamont has been protecting the rights of victims and is certified by the Law Society of Upper Canada as a Specialist in Civil Litigation. When you work with Michael and his team, you can focus on your physical and emotional recovery—because we’re looking out for your financial future.

  • We’re specialists in personal injury law.

    No-fault insurance has changed the legal and regulatory landscape—it takes a specialist to navigate the terrain and keep up with the changes. We’ve assembled a top-notch team with expertise in accident benefits, tort law, mediation, arbitration and civil litigation and we’re committed to staying on top of the latest in case law and government regulation. We know the insurance industry from the inside and we’re passionate advocates for victims. Personal injury is all we do…and it shows.

  • We don’t get any money until you do.

    We know finances are a struggle after an injury. We don’t require you to pay us until your case is settled.

  • We know the system, so you don’t have to.

    We’ll help you assess whether you have a strong case, make sense of the confusing paperwork and find the truth behind the sometimes alarming correspondence from your insurer. We’ll make sure you’re aware of deadlines, advise you of your rights and responsibilities and put together a plan to protect your income and your future financial security.

  • We’re responsive.

    We treat you like a person, not a case. Michael will meet you when and where it’s most convenient for you and, if we take on your case, we’ll respond to your phone calls and emails promptly so you never feel ignored or abandoned. We understand the stress you and your family are experiencing and work hard to be a calming and compassionate presence in your life.

  • We’re respected.

    Word of mouth keeps our practice busy but the quality of our documentation and the ethics of our practice have also earned us the respect of other lawyers, medical experts and the insurance industry. For you, that means we get the best experts to provide evidence and some degree of cooperation from “the other side.” Airtight cases with credible expert testimony help speed the process along and often mean substantial settlements can be received without the long wait for a trial date.

  • We help simplify the process.

    Everyone hates legalese—even some lawyers. We translate the confusing terminology into plain English and summarize the extensive paperwork, taking the time to explain what it means, what we’re doing and discuss your options. You may have some tough decisions ahead. With our team on your side you’ll be able to move forward with confidence.

  • We’re small.. and mighty.

    People in the GTA and Hamilton know Michael from his billboards and radio ads, but our clients know Michael’s face because they meet with him in person. Our team is small enough to make you feel safe and well-cared for and powerful enough to win big cases.

  • We’re committed to you.

    We start compiling evidence and building your case right away and see the process through to the end—we don’t put you “on trial” to see if your case is strong enough to warrant our investment.

  • We win.

    We’re full partners in your case and pursue every angle possible to get you the settlement you deserve as quickly as possible. We’ve won some very high profile cases and obtained large financial settlements for cases that other lawyers wouldn’t touch. We’re creative, strategic and savvy—and our hundreds of successful cases are the proof.
