Joe is dedicated and creative; his talent for putting a case together for his clients is unparalleled.
Joseph Cescon (“Joe”) has been a member of the firm since 2008. Initially drawn to the study of law intending to work in academics, Joe shifted his focus after the tragic loss of a family member in a workplace accident. Intent on advocating for victims’ rights, Joe sought out an articling position with McLeish Orlando in 2009. Since that time, Joe has devoted his practice entirely to representing injured people and their family members. A passionate advocate, Joe strives to assist his clients in both their recovery and the pursuit of their future goals.
In 2013, Joe opened the Kitchener-Waterloo office of McLeish Orlando. Committed to giving back to the community where he grew up, Joe is looking forward to bringing McLeish Orlando’s expertise to clients in Kitchener-Waterloo, Guelph, Cambridge, Stratford and Milton and the Huron, Bruce and Grey Counties.
Before joining McLeish Orlando as an articling student, Joe worked as a research and teaching assistant for two of his legal professors at Western.
Joe was appointed to the Board of Directors of the Brain injury Association of Waterloo-Wellington in 2013. He is a member of the Ontario Bar Association, the Ontario Trial Lawyers’ Association and the Advocates’ Society.
In his spare time, Joe enjoys swimming, cycling and travelling with his wife and quality time with his daughter Amelia.
Expertise & News
- Dear Dale, Joseph and the rest of your wonderful staff,
You have worked so hard for me over the last three years and I will never forget you all. I feel like I will get somewhat of a new start on life hopefully. I have to stay positive that I will not have to have another surgery. I would like to thank Kimberly for answering all my questions and also for all the positive thoughts and taking time for me. I am going through a lot, but I have great friends and family that are helping me through it, but now I have a new house to start new memories and I will always be thankful.
Yours truly, S
