Neinstein Personal Injury Lawyers is a boutique law firm in Toronto specializing in transforming the lives of catastrophically injured people across Canada.
Our firm is made up of 17 lawyers with leading expertise in personal injury law focusing on catastrophic motor vehicle accidents and medical negligence cases. We are focused on building strong relationships with clients, counsel, and experts; delivering meaningful results; and, more importantly, supporting our clients on their road to recovery.
Neinstein was founded by senior partner Gary Neinstein, QC, an accomplished trial lawyer with more than 50 years of civil litigation experience including over 300 trials. Today, many members of our experienced legal team are Lexpert®-ranked, distinguished amongst the Best Lawyers, AV-rated through Martin- Hubbell, and hold specialist designations in Civil Litigation.
In the past year alone, the lawyers at Neinstein have conducted five complex medical malpractice trials, two appeals, and an application for leave to the Supreme Court of Canada.
The medical malpractice team is led by celebrated trial lawyer Duncan Embury, who is often retained by other counsel from across the country to take on their most complex cases:
“When you litigate against physicians, you come face to face with literally the best financed legal defence teams in the nation. Duncan is incapable of being intimidated by any of that. Impeccably prepared, relentless in his cross examinations, Duncan and his team delivered the spirited fight which I had asked of them at the outset. I cannot recommend Duncan highly enough.”
Neinstein Personal Injury Lawyers has been recognized by Canadian Lawyer as one of the "Top 10 Personal Injury Boutique Firms" in 2013–2014 and 2021 and is honoured to be listed in this coveted category again in 2022.
