After graduating from Champlain College CEGEP he was admitted to study law at McGill. Having completed his third year at Laval university in Quebec city, he returned to McGill for his fourth year and was granted both his civil and common law degrees from McGill in 1989.
Practising law since 1991, appearing principally in the Ontario courts and administrative tribunals but also before the courts of Quebec, Saskatchewan and British Columbia, Tim began his career clerking to the judges of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice. Subsequently he joined a sole practitioner with whom he practised for 2 years. He then joined Heifetz, Crozier as counsel in 1994 and became a partner of Heifetz, Crozier, Law in 1997.
Tim is a proud member of the Toronto Commercial Arbitration Society, the International Law Association and The International Forum of Travel & Tourism Advocates.
Having begun his career on the “other side of the bench” as clerk to the Superior Court judges Tim has an insight into the judicial decision making process and a broad range of experience in his practice, including criminal defence, personal injury, family law, employment, insurance and class actions. For the last decade his practice has focused on civil disputes in commercial cases, conflicts of law, professional liability, travel law and international arbitration.
In addition to his litigation practice, Tim has spoken at various conferences in Canada, including the Travel Law Conference (hosted by Heifetz, Crozier, Law and Baxter Travel, see http://www.travellaw.ca), in South America and the United States. He also contributes articles to legal publications.
