As a partner at Oatley Vigmond, Adam believes that achieving exceptional results in personal injury claims requires creativity, dedication, perseverance and hard work. He strives to apply those qualities on behalf of all his clients.
A graduate of Queen’s University Faculty of Law (2000) and the University of Toronto (1996), Adam was called to the Bar in 2002. Since that time, Adam has dedicated his practice to obtaining compensation for motor vehicle accidents, medical negligence, occupiers’ liability claims and other insurance disputes.
Prior to joining Oatley Vigmond in 2005, Adam practiced with a leading Toronto litigation firm, where he also defended physicians in malpractice claims and regulatory matters. While representing physicians, Adam gained valuable insight, experience and understanding into the unique way in which Canadian doctors are defended by their protective association. Adam now applies that insight, experience and understanding on behalf those injured at the hands of physicians.
When asked what he enjoys most about practicing personal injury law, Adam explains that it is seeing the smile on a client’s face when we achieve a successful result on their behalf.
When Adam isn’t practicing personal injury law, he enjoys running, mountain biking, riding his ATV – and just about anything outdoors!
