Picture of Brian Hebert
Halifax, Nova Scotia

With an economics and business law background, Brian helps our personal injury clients prove their economic losses. Good news for injured business owners and professionals. But Brian is not just a numbers guy by any means. We’ve seen him singlehandedly take on insurance companies in wrongful death trials - and win. He loves jury trials - something about “common sense” and “ordinary people always getting it right”. He hasn’t lost a jury trial yet but he has lost several pounds during each trial. It’s a lot of work. Luckily he runs and cycles to work to keep up his stamina for longer trials. He also has a standing desk at the office.
