Tara is an experienced litigator and has been practicing in Ottawa since her call to the bar in 2005. She represents both insurers and individuals with a focus on litigation including motor vehicle liability, slip and falls, sexual assaults, professional negligence, brain injuries and product liability.

She has a particular specialization in Accident Benefits ranging from disputes over treatment plans  to catastrophic impairments with complex causation questions.

She has regularly appeared before the Superior Court of Justice, Ontario Court of Appeal and License Appeal Tribunal of Ontario.

Tara enjoys the challenge of applying the law to individual circumstances and recognizes the important role that human factors may play in a case.

In her spare time, Tara volunteers with the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa where she is co-chair of the annual Holiday Hamper committee which provides a week’s worth of food to low income families in Ottawa for the holidays.
