Nicole Corriero, Lofranco Corriero Dhaliwal Personal Injury Lawyers
Mary Nicole Corriero graduated from Harvard University in 2005 with Cum Laude Honours in the field Sociology. In 2008 she obtained her joint ‘JD/LLB’ degree from the Universities of Windsor and Detroit Mercy. Nicole was admitted to the Law Society of Ontario in 2009 and the Law Societies of Alberta and British Columbia in 2017. She remains a member in good standing of all Law Societies.
Nicole’s entire legal career has been devoted to advocating for injured Plaintiffs, be it in a Personal Injury Lawsuit, a Benefit Tribunal Appeal or a Wrongful Dismissal suit. A passionate advocate for her clients, Nicole has successfully represented her clients at various Administrative Tribunals, the Divisional Court and the Superior Court of Justice.
Nicole has argued a number of precedent-setting Statutory Accident Benefits cases, as well as highly successful Jury trial verdicts.
In addition to advocacy in litigation, Nicole has also advocated for the rights of injured athletes through her writing. In 2018, Nicole’s paper “Fire on Ice: Why the state of Tortious Liability in Hockey is Antiquated and How it Ought to Be” was published in the Annual Review of Civil Litigation. Therein, she analyzes jurisprudence surrounding personal injuries stemming from various contact team sports and how they differ from the sport of hockey. Herein, she advocates for change in how injuries in the sport of hockey are treated by the Courts, in an effort to promote the safety of the players in the face of reckless, preventable violent acts.
Nicole has always fostered a well-rounded lifestyle outside of her legal career that includes a commitment to elite athletics as well as service to her community.
Nicole has been a member of the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association since 2008. Nicole served two terms as Chair of the Women’s Trial Lawyers Caucus for OTLA.
Nicole volunteers with the Harvard Club of Toronto as an Alumni Admissions Interviewer. She serves as a mentor to High School students applying to Universities and has spoken at conferences and events about the university application process. She volunteers at local hockey camps, doing on-ice skill sessions, as well as off ice talks promoting the pursuit of higher education in conjunction with sport.
