I was called to the bar in February of 1994 and have practiced in the area of civil litigation and personal injury almost exclusively since that time. I spent the first four years of my career acting for insurance companies at a local firm which focused on personal injury insurance defence litigation. There I learned valuable lessons about the tactics insurance companies use to deny, avoid, limit and defend claims – lessons which have provided me with insight into the best strategies to frame and present injury claims on behalf of my injured plaintiff clients. I began my own practice in 1998 and began focusing on personal injury work. Through the years I have worked as a sole practitioner, with a partner, and through affiliations with other law firms. Today I am proud to lead the personal injury team at Bezaire and Associates with locations in both Belle River and Windsor.
My passion for the plight of innocent accident victims and the pathetically eroded (and eroding) compensation schemes to which they are entitled under the Insurance Act has caused me to become active in the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association (OTLA) – the pre-eminent provincial voice for legislative change for such victims – where I now sit as a member of the Board of Directors and upon several of their front-line committees.
I grew up in Windsor where I attended Assumption High School and then the University of Windsor, obtaining bachelor degrees in English and Law. I recently completed my MBA (Master of Business Administration) from University of Fredericton and I will soon be graduating from a Master of Law (LLM) program at Osgoode Hall Law School. I have been a sessional instructor at the University of Windsor Law School, I have been a frequent guest lecturer for the Law Society of Upper Canada’s Bar Admission Course, and I am often contacted by local media to comment upon personal injury matters and automobile insurance issues in the news. I enjoy speaking about the law and would be pleased to address your class, club, board or membership on any formal or informal basis.

I live in Belle River with my wife Heather and two children, Abigail and Patrick. I love all the babies and doggies in the world! I enjoy running, eating chicken wings, hanging out with my bride, and I never run out of things to read.
Why It Is Best to Not Talk to an Insurance Company Without a Lawyer Whether you are involved in a car accident or injured in a slip-and-fall accident, often there are multiple insurance companies involved. After an automobile accident, one of the first things you must do is contact your insurance company. However, insurance companies rarely have your best interests in mind. InsuranceSeptember 20, 2021
