Congratulations to our four Gluckstein Lawyers who have been selected for The Best Lawyers® in Canada 2021. We are proud to highlight their achievements and speak to the honour of being selected.

Bernard Gluckstein  "I firmly believe a part of our success is attributed not only to our honest reputation but our commitment to humanitarian efforts. Giving back to the community is one of the strongest values we hold as a firm– this is part of our promise to our clients and community of offering full-circle care and support to those who walk through our door. Working here has allowed me to meet people who have sustained injuries causing life-changing disabilities every day. When we take on our clients' cases, we make it our mission to support them as they seek the financial and other resources they need to thrive in their lives in the future. We know that our time working directly with clients in settlement negotiations or the courtroom is only a brief period on their long road to recovery. To be effective advocates, we always keep our mind on the other stages of that journey and how we might be present there – whether in person or spirit." "I am humbled and honoured to be chosen again by my peers to be included as one of the Best Lawyers in Canada."

Charles E. Gluckstein continues to drive our firm towards innovation, and hold the firm belief of helping our clients restore the balance in their lives through proper representation and maximizing their rehabilitation. Since his call to the Ontario Bar in 1999, Charles Gluckstein has embraced technological advancements and has worked tirelessly to modernize his practice to meet our times' challenges. Such integrated technologies have increased firm productivity, allowing more time to connect with clients and build better cases. Charles Gluckstein, is the innovator behind the most recent and impressive expansions of the firm, including Derek Nicholson, one of Ottawa's leading civil trial lawyers with over 40 years of litigation experience, and Richard Halpern, a top medical malpractice lawyer with a particular interest in birth injury. These additions help to provide top-quality representation to injured people across the province, and beyond. "It is an honour to be selected by my peers, and I am humbled by it every day."

Richard Halpern is a senior lawyer acting exclusively for injured people in medical negligence cases, with a particular focus on infants injured at or around the time of birth. Richard is known across Canada for his expertise in birth injury cases. He has more than 30 years of experience representing seriously injured people and is known for tackling some of the most complex and challenging medical malpractice cases. "This is an enormously complex field in which lawyers have to understand the medicine to know what to look out for when researching, reviewing medical records, interacting with experts, and identifying critical issues."

David Lackman has tirelessly worked to support his clients and has achieved successful results for the past 30 years. His litigation practice encompasses serious and complex personal injury and disability claims. "Honoured to be recognized by peers, but true accomplishment is found in our clients' success." Your support means a lot to us. It is an honour to have representatives of our firm once again acknowledged for their dedication to clients and upholding our promise of full-circle care for all who walk through our doors. Thank you from all of us at the Gluckstein office.
