Michael T. Mollison, Q.C., and legal assistant, Claire Smits join Harris Law

The entire team at Harris Law is thrilled to welcome Michael T. Mollison, Q.C., to the firm. Michael (Mike) recently joined Harris Law, along with his highly experienced legal assistant, Claire Smits.

“It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have someone like Mike join your firm, so when those opportunities arise, you have to seize them,” says Gord Harris. “In my humble opinion, we were already well established on the map, but this solidifies us as the go-to destination for help with personal injury and insurance claims in Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Waterloo Region, and all of the surrounding areas.” 

Meet Mike 

Mike is a titan of the local Civil Litigation bar in his 50th year of practicing law. He has been a partner in several prominent local firms over his career, including those he founded. Mike was called to the Ontario Bar in 1968 and articled for Peter Madorin, Q.C., another veteran in Civil Litigation who is still practicing. In 1970, he joined Coulter Osborne in Kitchener where Mike absorbed a wealth of knowledge during this time and carried on his Civil Litigation Practice, growing a prominent and respected local firm specializing in Insurance Defence Litigation. 

Mike has acted predominantly for Insurance Companies over the last 50 years, until recently, where he now carries an active practice helping victims of accidents, victims of other people’s negligence, and victims of improper or unfair denials from insurance companies.

“We are pleased and excited to be joining the litigation firm of Harris Law, Personal Injury Lawyers,” says Mike. “From past experience, we know that Gord Harris cares about his clients and this is exactly the kind of firm we want to be part of. Everyone in this firm has helped to establish a good working environment, which has created excellent results for the clients.” 

“Harris Law - 100 years of combined experience in personal injury law.”

“Mike is a really great person that I have known and admired for decades, so it is a great fit for us. The other firms in town and elsewhere have already started to take notice, which is also very exciting for us,” says Gord.   

At Harris Law, we can now put this considerable and valuable expertise to the advantage of all our clients. With Mike a part of the leadership team, Harris Law’s lawyers now have almost 100 years of combined experience in the personal injury law specialty field.             

“The staff of lawyers and assistants at Harris Law are extremely qualified through the tutelage of Gord Harris, and in the short time we have been with the firm we can really see that the “clients come first,” says Mike. 

The number of people in our local bar with his Civil Litigation and Civil Trial experience can be counted on one hand – which helps explains how ecstatic we are to have he and Claire join our team. They will both be tremendous assets to the lawyers and staff at Harris Law, and a great benefit to all of our clients, not just the many people they were already helping.
