Our Trial Record
Sets Us Apart. Period.
Our Philosophy is
Knowing the importance of trial experience, many personal injury lawyers imply that they have it when they don’t. They may state that they appear” at various court levels, but that doesn’t mean they went to trial. They may say they “fight” or that they are “tough,” but if they have never gone to trial for their clients in the past, what exactly did they fight, and just how tough are they?
Ask for proof: Jury trials have written verdicts and judge alone trials have reported decisions. They both have court file numbers. We believe in backing up what we say. The symbol of our firm is the symbol of evidence. Your future will be decided based on evidence.
We believe deciding who represents you should be as well.
Putting your future into the hands of a personal injury lawyer is one of the most important decisions you will make.
We encourage you to meet with other lawyers. Do your due diligence. Consider asking these questions.

The Law Society of Ontario strictly regulates personal injury contingency fee agreements. We will provide you with our contingency fee agreement during our initial meeting and discuss it with you in detail. It will include the following significant provisions:
Be careful of misleading “no win no fee guarantee” claims, implying no downside risk. Such claims only tell half the story. In the event of a loss, while you won’t pay your own lawyer’s fees, unsuccessful lawsuits can expose you to paying a portion of the defendant’s legal costs. However, at Boland Romaine, we help you obtain cost protection insurance to protect you from this outcome.

Vehicle accidents can cause traumatic and life-changing experiences for the victims.
Additionally, the at-fault driver’s insurer may be responsible for compensating of your pain and suffering, loss of income, future health care expenses, housekeeping costs and other losses in excess of the amounts paid out through accident benefits.
However, the Ontario government imposes a $40,000 deductible to be surpassed for pain and suffering, and it requires that the plaintiff ‘s injuries to cross what is called “the threshold” of being both permanent and serious.
At BolandRomaine, we have successfully taken cases to trial where the defendant raises the threshold.
MacDonald v. Talaba (defendant’s offer: $10K. Jury verdict: $356,020)
Copeland v. Knox (defendant’s offer: $37,360. Jury verdict: $161,591.34)
Cockburn v. Holmes (defendant’s offer: $0k. Jury verdict, $420,000) – threshold abandoned mid trial
