Kingston, ON— 28-Feb-2022 – Edward Bergeron and Chris Clifford voted as one of the Lexpert 2022 Leading Legal Practitioners across Canada based on an extensive peer survey process.
“We have always been focused on protecting individuals and their families from the tragic consequences arising out of injuries sustained from the mistakes made by others. One of our advantages is that we practice locally throughout eastern Ontario and are familiar with the region’s local health care and rehabilitations providers. This familiarity with the local service providers is invaluable in helping our clients maximize their recovery by obtaining the essential treatments and care they require.”
