Sophie Luesby, LL.B.
Associate, Personal Injury Lawyer
Here at MG Law I have dedicated my practice to medical malpractice and personal injury claims. Coming from a strong multidisciplinary background, I am particularly interested in assisting traumatically injured clients with their transition, from time of discharge until they are settled back into their community. My goal is to build and be a part of our clients’ support networks as they embark on their rehabilitation journey, while ensuring they get the compensation they both require and deserve.
Prior to my legal studies at the University of Surrey in England, I completed an Honours Bachelor of Health Sciences at the University of Ottawa. I took an array of courses, designed to give me a broad base of scientific knowledge, an ability to conduct and assess research, as well as an appreciation for public health care and policymaking.
My academic background in Health Sciences also provided me with a foundational biosciences core. As such, I complete all medical malpractice intake screenings for MG Law.
Working with the public and in team settings has helped me be sensitive to the value of others’ opinions and ideas. I’ve also honed my diplomacy and resourcefulness and developed creative problem-solving tactics. My dedication to the field of law, my interest in health, my ample research experience, and my consistent application of evidence-based principles, are all skills that I apply in my day-to-day work at MG Law.
Hailing from a small French community, I am fluently bilingual and am pleased to serve my clients in both French and English. I am also a proud member of the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association (OTLA) and the County of Carleton Law Association (CCLA).
Important steps to take when injured
It’s important to remember that injuries can take some time to present themselves. If you’ve been in a bad accident, it’s important to take these steps regardless of how you feel, as it may take a few days or weeks for the full extent of your injuries to become apparent.
Police reports are a valuable part of any court proceeding, so ensuring that the police have all the information you have available will reflect positively on your case.
