02 Jul Gluckstein Lawyers opens Ottawa affiliate office
Gluckstein Lawyers is pleased to announce the opening of the new Nicholson Gluckstein Lawyers office in Ottawa, Ontario. Led by experienced civil trial lawyers Derek Nicholson and Danielle Bartlett, this new office located in Ottawa’s Centretown neighbourhood helps us continue to take on the most complex personal injury matters throughout Ontario and help victims recover from their injuries with the compensation they deserve. Fittingly for a new office in our nation’s capital, Nicholson Gluckstein Lawyers officially opened on July 1st: Canada Day.
The addition of Derek Nicholson and the personal injury team at the Nicholson Gluckstein Lawyers office continues our work guiding people to become their best self after sustaining a catastrophic injury. Our team of experienced and compassionate lawyers are here to help catastrophic injury victims and their families across Ontario out of our offices in Toronto, Niagara, and now Ottawa.
Nicholson Gluckstein Lawyers will be led by Derek Nicholson, one of Ottawa’s leading civil trial lawyers. With over 40 years of litigation experience, Derek has represented both plaintiffs and insurance companies in high-stakes personal injury, product liability, and mass tort cases. Now solely representing catastrophic injury victims, he uses his past experience representing insurance companies to obtain insight to assist plaintiffs.
Derek’s extensive trial experience is a great addition to the Gluckstein team. He recently secured one of the largest settlements in Canadian history, winning over $15 million for clients who were catastrophically injured in a motor vehicle accident. The settlement also produced one of the largest structured settlements in Canadian history of $11 million.
In addition to his skill in the courtroom and his dedication to his clients, Derek also contributes to the wider legal community. He is the former Director of the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association and served on the executive as Treasurer and Regional Organization Coordinator. Derek is also the past Chair of the OTLA cup committee which organizes an annual Moot Court in the area of personal injury for six of the law schools in Ontario.
Gluckstein Lawyers is also pleased to welcome Danielle Bartlett as an associate lawyer. Working alongside Derek Nicholson, Danielle is a civil litigator at the Nicholson Gluckstein Lawyers office where she specializes in complex personal injury matters. Her experience includes appearing before Ontario tribunals, Small Claims Court and the Ontario Superior Court of Justice to represent her clients in their time of need. She is also passionate about advocacy for survivors of institutional sexual abuse who wish to pursue their claims through civil actions.
