Testimonials

R K

Would like to extend my gratitude and appreciation to Rory Morgan for his involvement in our ICBC claim. Rory's extensive experience and knowledge provided a reassuring confidence that our claim would be handled with an excellent standard of care and diligence. Our claim was recently concluded and would have no hesitation in recommending Rory as a highly regarded counsel.

To Whom it May Concern; Rory Morgan was my lawyer for a motor vehicle accident I endured in 2017 until my settlement in 2021. I have never had to experience such a life changing event I my life. From my first meeting with him, Rory explained that I must first focus on healing myself. He would be in touch as to my progress and he was. Rory is a thorough and competent professional. I always felt he had my best interests in mind. He dealt with ICBC for me which allowed me the freedom to take care of my health while he took care of my legal concerns. I found his assistant Pamela Walsh to be a very pleasant professional and quick to reply to my calls or emails. They make a great team and I truly felt confident I had the right professionals taking care of my case. Rory was honest and transparent in all of my dealings and explained the legal processes we encountered. I would not hesitate to recommend Rory to anyone who is in need of a Personal Injury Lawyer you will not be disappointed. Thank-you Rory and Pam it has been a pleasure. You both made a difficult process a lot easier for me. Christina Piche

Mr. Rory Morgan was lawyer recommended to us and we used his services and help with mine and my husband ICBC case (car accident we had few years ago). Rory always responded promptly to all our questions and concerns, was very clear and concise explaining the whole process and what to expect. He was supportive and guided us through the complex process - fought hard to protect our rights and get us compensation for immediate and long term health concerns, due to the car accident. His charges are reasonable compared to other lawyers and to the good quality work and results you'll benefit from. He is also efficient referring business to his colleagues, who specialize in certain aspects of law, if he is not able to service your needs. We would highly recommend Rory for all of your legal needs!

My experience with Rory Morgan was amazing. It was my first examination of discovery so I was very nervous walking into the meeting, but Rory ensured that I was equipped with all the knowledge and tips necessary to complete it successfully. Not only was Rory informative, he was able to provide me with advice and tips that helped me remain calm throughout the questions. Additionally, he was very kind and had a genuine desire to help me, which is something I value as a client. I highly recommend Rory for your legal needs, he is professional, knowledgeable, and more than qualified!

Human Rights
CHRIS DRINOVZ
This is some text inside of a div block.
Our client was injured in a helicopter crash at work. The employer then terminated her employment while she was on medical leave and WorkSafeBC benefits. Our client filed a complaint under the Human Rights Code and the employer applied to dismiss the complaint under s. 27(1)(c) of the Code. We resited the application to dismiss and it was denied as the employer was unsuccessful in showing that the complaint had no reasonable prospect of success. Importantly, the tribunal found that “determinations made by WorkSafeBC abour whether an employee can return to a pre-injury job are not based on a human rights analysis of whether an employer has fulfilled its duty to accommodate.”

Commercial, Insurance & Criminal
CHRIS DRINOVZ
This is some text inside of a div block.
Chris was co-counsel for the defendant in a case where the plaintiff claimed that the defendant intentionally ran him over with her vehicle. After a six day trial, the Court dismissed the plaintiff’s claims for aggravated and punitive damages and found the plaintiff was in fact 50% responsible for the incident.

WorkSafeBC Compensation
CHRIS DRINOVZ
This is some text inside of a div block.
Judicial review – Workers Compensation Board accepted our client’s claim for a back injury sustained on a first day on the job with her new employer. In setting her long-term wage rate, WCB found her to be a ‘temporary’ worker. We argued for our client that her employment was permanent. WCAT dismissed our claim and affirmed the initial WCB decision. We petitioned the BC Supreme Court, and the Court found the WCAT decision was patently unreasonable as it failed to make findings about the words of our client’s oral employment contract. This judicial review presented an interesting intersection of employment law, workers compensation law, and administrative law. Read Chris’ blog post about this case here.

Employment Insurance & CPP
CHRIS DRINOVZ
This is some text inside of a div block.
Chris’ client was denied Employment Insurance benefits after the Commission determined that she had left her job voluntarily. We appealed to the Social Security Tribunal and successfully argued that our client was in fact terminated from employment and therefore she was entitled to EI benefits. She received a retroactive payment and ongoing support during her search for new employment.
