About Patrick Brown

Patrick Brown was called to the bar in 1993 and is an owner and partner of the firm. Having practiced personal injury in Ontario for over 25 years, his cases have involved children, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, wrongful death, biking/cycling injury, boating, daycare and camp negligence, drowning, road disrepair, and motor vehicle collisions. In addition, Patrick has extensive experience advocating for those suffering from hospital negligence and medical malpractice.

He is one of a select set of lawyers who have been certified as a Specialist in Civil Litigation, voted as a leading lawyer in Best Lawyers Canada, listed as Most Frequently Recommended by other lawyers in Lexpert®, and granted the AV Preeminent Rating from Martindale- Hubbell. Patrick is the past President of the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association and was nominated as one of Canada’s Most Influential Lawyers in Canadian Lawyer Magazine. He was awarded the Professional Award of the Year by the Ontario Brain Injury Association for his work advocating for those living with brain injuries.

During his career, he has successfully conducted jury and non-jury trials and has been recognized for his advocacy skills. After successfully obtaining the jury verdict in the case of Ishoy v. Abreau, which involved a five-time Olympian who was seriously injured, the trial judge stated “counsel presented their case in a focused, well-organized fashion. Their trial preparation resulted in well prepared and focused witnesses. The charts, aerial photographs, medical illustrations, and demonstrative evidence both assisted the jury in understanding the medical and liability issues…Mr. Brown was lead counsel …his closing address to the jury was dramatic, focused, and effective.” After obtaining a multi-million- dollar award in Roberts v. Morana, a case involving road disrepair, Justice O’Brien noted “I have not seen a case which has been better prepared or presented than this one.” His advocacy skills have assisted Patrick in ensuring his clients are awarded fair and reasonable awards.

He initiated the most comprehensive Coroner’s Review of Pedestrian and Cycling deaths in Ontario and was awarded the Active Transportation Champion of the Year by Toronto Centre for Active Transportation. More recently he was awarded the “Safety Award of Excellence” by the Ontario Safety League (est. 1911) as presented by the Minister of Transportation.
