Back in 2016 I got a concussion at a hockey game. A fight broke out behind me and my injury was the fall out.
My case was a long and grueling one for everyone involved but was well worth the wait for the outcome. Both Todd and Kelly worked tirelessly on a case that I thought would be a long shot when I first sought counsel. Head injuries don’t always get taken seriously in the legal system as they are a pain you can’t see. It’s not as tangible like other injuries tend to be. Neither Todd nor Kelly gave up on my case and believed in it and me.
Todd taught me a lot about how to value myself - it was an unfamiliar feeling to have someone advocate for me as hard as he did. We ended up taking the case all the way to trial and he made the process as painless as it could be given the circumstances. Trial can be terrifying and he made it much more palatable. He walked me through every step, talked me through the hard times, and made sure I knew he was always rooting for me to get justice.
Todd showed me that not only could this case make a difference for me, but it could be a step forward for others like me who sustained a head injury. And he didn’t do that with just his words; he showed me with his actions at every stage of the case.
Kelly is by far the sweetest person I’ve yet to meet in my life and I mean that wholeheartedly. She stayed on top of things, was always keeping me in the loop on new developments in the case, was accommodating to the fact that I am 10x more responsive by text, and overall, a complete joy to work with. 10/10 would recommend.
Because of them I am able to sustain myself, my children, and the treatment I need in mental health to work my way to a more “normal” life.
It’s because of them and the case that I feel empowered to keep fighting for mental health and others who have been put in a similar situation to myself. I now have the ability to go back to school to become a therapist myself. Their care for my case renewed my passion for parts of my life I thought I would have to retire - school in particular.
Because of them, I feel a sense of hope for the future I haven’t had since I got my head injury a few years back. There will never be enough words to describe the gratitude I feel for both of these people and what they have been able to do for mine and my family’s life.
