OTLA makes several recommendations to the Law Society in response to the Working Group report tabled at Convocation in June 2016. This submission builds on our previous submission to the Law Society on this matter in October 2015.
OTLA affirms, as stated in the rules, that ads must be accurate and true and that all marketing must be in the best interest of the public. Active and timely enforcement of those rules is crucial.
Carol Bierbrier and Associates on the changes to SABS in June 2016
The changes will significantly reduce med/rehab benefits- leaving clients with fewer options for care.
Life Care Plans will play a vital role, more than ever, in determining the necessary med/rehab costs required to maximize a client’s independence. Effective resolution of claims will offer the client the ability to continue with essential treatment.
Hundreds of trial lawyers, law clerks, and law students converged on the Metro Toronto Convention Centre last week for our annual fall conference: The Diversified Personal Injury Lawyer: Conquering New Legal Frontiers. Thank you to everyone for attending; we hope you found the program insightful and compelling.
We would also like to recognize and praise keynote speaker Chris Messerly for his engaging presentation "How Trial Lawyers Turned a Deadly Man-Made Catastrophe into Justice and Public Safety: The Minneapolis Interstate Bridge Collapse". Thank you to all of our speakers for sharing their perspective on a wide variety of practice areas. We are also grateful for the support of so many fine sponsors and exhibitors.
If our conference inspired you, consider becoming involved with our future programs - we'd love to hear from you!
