AJ focuses on helping his clients navigate the complicated relationships that comprise disputes. Most of AJ’s practice focuses on insurance coverage advice and litigation, primarily in the area of marine, transportation, errors and omissions, directors and officers, and other speciality lines. AJ prides himself in being proactive in identifying potential disputes, and creating client-centric solutions before litigation becomes costly.
When matters cannot be reasonably solved at an early stage, AJ works as a tireless advocate in developing and asserting strategic legal arguments that protect his clients’ interests. AJ’s broad litigation practice includes employment, commercial litigation, human rights, product liability, and appellate work.
Community engagement is an important part of AJ’s practice. He regularly provides free legal services through Access Pro Bono and the Refugee Sponsorship Training Program. During law school, he was a clinic head and board member of the Law Student Legal Advice Program, where he represented clients in immigration, refugee, criminal and employment matters. He has also worked with Law for Non-Profits and the Artist Legal Outreach.
Prior to becoming a lawyer, AJ worked as a brewer in the craft beer industry. In his spare time, AJ still brews a few of his favourite Belgian-style beers, as well backcountry ski, bike tour, watch films, and spend time with his young family.
