Ottawa Lawyer Brenda Hollingsworth – A Panelist at the University of Ottawa

On October 22 2019, Ottawa lawyer Brenda Hollingsworth was pleased to serve as a panellist on a presentation to law students at the University of Ottawa.  The panel was sponsored by the Ontario Bar Association.  Kelly McDermott from Durham Region and local family law lawyer Jonathan Richardson rounded out the presenters.

The topic was looking for opportunities for law students to article and practice that are not necessarily on the beaten track.  It is so easy for law students to get caught up in the march to Bay Street that they miss interesting and potentially fulfilling opportunities right under their nose.

The panel touched on resume etiquette, answering tough questions during an interview, appropriate preparation for an interview and planning one’s career.  The many advantages and benefits available to students who join the Ontario Bar Association (which is FREE for students) were also reviewed.

The students had meaningful questions.  When it comes to getting a placement after law school, the more you know, the better your chances.

 

Brain Injury Association of the Ottawa Valley Fundraiser

Auger Hollingsworth was a proud sponsor of the Brain Injury Association of the Ottawa Valley Fundraiser on October 23rd.  The event was held at Bayview Yards — a very cool venue.

The Brain Injury Association of the Ottawa Valley is a vital organization that offers education, information, hope and support to persons with brain injuries, their family members, friends, caregivers and professionals in the Ottawa Valley region.  This annual event — the 13th of its kind — is key to ensuring it can provide support and advocacy those who need it.  Our firm was proud to be part of this great event.

A Client Pays a Compliment!

One of the best things about being a personal injury lawyer at Auger Hollingsworth is the opportunity to help clients get the compensation they need to get on with life after an injury.  This week a client who received a settlement after a slip and fall sent our associate lawyer Charles Genest this kind note:

Thank you Charles

“This settlement will ensure that I get the physio and home care I need to make a recovery that will allow me to live a “normal” life.  Your kindness,  thoughtfulness and hard work is a testament to who you are!  Brenda is very fortunate to have you on her team!”
