John F. Evans, QC, LSM

“Thank you.  I couldn’t have done this without you.”

These are the words that John Evans cherishes most. He hears them from his clients many times a year as he is closing their files with his assignment completed.

Why? Because he makes good decisions and he gets the job done.

Most of his clients don’t know that he has been named a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, recognizing him as one of the top 1% of trial lawyers in North America. Or that he was awarded the Law Society Medal, which is awarded to exceptional lawyers in Ontario who have made a significant contribution to the profession.

That suits John just fine. He’d rather talk about his next bicycle trip overseas or the latest play he took in with the love of his life, his wife Patsy.

What matters to John is focusing his attention on what matters most for his clients – the results. Luckily for his clients, he knows how to get them – with curiosity, creativity and integrity, backed by a team of skilled associates and partners.

In an age where most litigators rarely see the inside of a courtroom, John has spent over 50 years successfully litigating some of the most complex and difficult cases around. Just ask the Public Health Nurses whom John defended at trial for 150 days and successfully advocated for at the Court of Appeal.

When you need someone to tell your story in Court, or even better, to help you negotiate a settlement before it ever gets there, you want John Evans on your side.

Why?

Because he makes good decisions and he gets the job done.
