Howie, Sacks & Henry LLP – Personal Injury Law – Valerie Lord

416-644-5849

As an associate at HSH, Valérie advocates for her clients on personal injury cases involving class action, mass tort, product liability, aviation, long-term disability, slip and fall, and motor vehicle accidents. She provides clients with legal advocacy on accident benefits and tort claims, and conducts hearings and trials of personal injury cases at the Ontario Superior Court of Justice. A bilingual (English and French) graduate of the University of Ottawa’s law school, Valérie served as assistant editor of the Ottawa Law Review, and interned with the Ministry of the Attorney General. She currently sits on the Young Practitioners Committee of the Medical Legal Society of Toronto and volunteers as a member of the Lawyer Show.

Being a personal injury lawyer allows me to advocate and provide support for victims of personal injury and their families, so that they can focus on their number one goal; their recovery. To me, there is nothing more rewarding than helping clients regain their quality of life back.
