Kevin Egan

The practice of law provides an opportunity to assist people going through difficult times in their lives and to provide meaningful and lasting solutions.

I have a strong interest in finding solutions for those who have suffered a personal injury. In addition to the more traditional areas of personal injury law, my recent legal work has brought me to the emerging area of "Charter Torts". I first became involved with seeking remedies under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms following the 2009 homicide death of an inmate at the Elgin Middlesex Detention Centre. I now represent a very large number of victims of police or prison system misconduct in Ontario in which we are seeking constitutional and other remedies.

Additionally, I have significant experience in the areas of labour and employment, workplace safety and insurance, disability insurance, human rights, and criminal and provincial offences. My practice also includes assault and battery, historic sexual assault, medical malpractice and negligent investigation claims against police and other investigators.

Prior to practicing law, I had extensive experience in management of a large national Corporation. I also owned and operated a number of small businesses. The broad range of experience and perspective I now bring to the table as a lawyer is a real benefit to my clients.

I am a student of history and genealogy and am proud to trace my family roots in law and academics as far back as 12 centuries ago, to the ancient universities and the hereditary "brehon" lawyers of Ireland. I feel an inherent attachment to the law and a passion for the good it can do. Since 2008, I have been an elected Deputy Chieftain of the Egan Clann. I very much enjoy continuing in the family tradition at McKenzie Lake Lawyers LLP.

I strongly believe that those who can ought to give back to their community. For the past several years I have been actively involved in coaching and managing minor sports within the City of London. I am currently serving my second term as the President of the London Junior Knights Hockey Association, the elite level for competitive minor hockey within the city and am keenly interested in providing programs and other assistance so that young people have an opportunity to develop their skills and their character through sport.

Testimonials

I am a commercial landlord with properties in London and other places in Ontario. I first encountered Kevin Egan when he was on the other side of a landlord/tenant dispute in which I was involved. I was impressed by his ability and liked how he handled a rather difficult situation. I decided Kevin would be a good lawyer for me. Since then, I have retained him to act on a number of files. He has more than met my expectations. Together we have resolved several complex matters including a protracted dispute with my fire insurance company with which my previous lawyers had not been successful.

When I was seriously injured in a truck rollover accident at work, I came to Kevin Egan for help. Kevin stuck with me through several levels of appeals and ultimately won long-term WSIB benefits for me. Kevin understands the system and, more importantly to me, understood me and the difficulties my soft tissue injuries were causing in my daily life. When I was ready to give up, he instilled in me the confidence to stick with it. His successful appeal gave me and my family financial stability we otherwise would not have had.
