Injury Lawyers Since 1984
Michael Connolly is a strategic and creative lawyer. He joined Boland Romaine LLP after practicing at an award-winning Toronto insurance litigation firm, where he defended insurance companies, motorists, property owners, and medical professionals in personal injury lawsuits. The fulfillment of helping policyholders, rather than their insurers, inspired him to commit his practice to representing seriously injured individuals through the litigation process. Capitalizing on his defence experience, Michael builds his cases to anticipate what insurers and defence lawyers will do, and mount an effective offensive response.
Michael focuses on impactful advocacy, as evidenced by his wins at motions and appeals involving statutory interpretation, insurance policy wording, disclosure of evidence, and trial outcomes. He thrives when crafting nuanced legal arguments anchored in analysis of case law and statutes.
Michael is a member of the Law Society of Ontario, the York Region Law Association, and the Ontario Bar Association. He also sits on the York Region Law Association’s Civil Litigation sub-committee. He regularly volunteers as a judge for law school moot court competitions.
Michael received his J.D. from Osgoode Hall Law School in 2019 and was called to the Ontario bar in 2020. Michael obtained a Bachelor of Music from the University of Toronto and a Masters in Musicology from the University of British Columbia.
