Fiercely personal representation

No matter how tough the case, we fearlessly advocate for our clients and their loved ones to ensure they recover fair and full compensation for their injuries. At MD Lawyers we take every personal injury case personally. We have the knowledge and the strength to stand up to insurance companies and powerful organizations on behalf of injured persons. When lives, careers and families are permanently changed, we are there to help get your life back. MD Lawyers is recognized by lawyers across Canada as excellent advocates and by our clients as supportive people who work hard to obtain results for them.


We think the way we train our team says a lot about who we are.

During every new employee’s training program, they’re asked to think about the person they love the most, and imagine how they would feel if that person was seriously injured. Every lawyer, law clerk and support staff member is then challenged to think about how they would like to be treated. This is how our staff are asked to frame every decision they make during their time at MD Lawyers.

Our team always aims to be thorough, effective and caring advocates by ensuring every client is treated fairly. Each case we take on receives the full attention of our legal team, from free consultation to resolution.


Senior litigators Barbara MacFarlane and Joni Dobson are leading the way for MD Lawyers, each having practised for more than 20 years with a focus on medical malpractice and serious personal injuries.

The foundation of the firm has always been excellence in service with care and compassion to deliver exceptional results. We at MD Lawyers are committed to providing a client-centred approach – we take it personally.

Barbara MacFarlane has extensive trial experience after working for almost 30 years at a Downtown Toronto law firm. She has a particular focus on medical negligence litigation. Barbara’s legal intrigue and passion launched her initial supportive role into a law school career and, ultimately, an associate. She enjoyed a partnership and leadership role at that firm until she joined forces with the team at MD Lawyers.

Joni Dobson has been a member of the firm for 15 years with extensive medical negligence experience. Joni represents people who are seriously injured through medical malpractice, falls, sports activities and car crashes. She strives to ensure her clients understand all aspects of their cases, lending her strength to them as they navigate the legal world.

Our trusted lawyers and staff work tirelessly and with pride to assist people during one of the most difficult times in their lives and help them pick up the pieces. Together, MD Lawyers strongly advocates for those who have been seriously injured and will go the distance to obtain fair results for clients and their families.


MD Lawyers is dedicated to partnering with local organizations and charities to help make the community a more vibrant and safe place to live. MD Lawyers has partnered on a number of initiatives with organizations like the Children’s Health Foundation, the Brain Injury Association of London and Middlesex, Spinal Cord Injury Ontario and Mothers Against Drunk Driving. MD’s partners and staff have also sat on a number of community boards and committees.

MD’s team members have volunteered time and offered funds in support of a number of organizations advocating for children’s health and safety, child literacy, distracted/drunk driving prevention, and breast and prostate cancer research.

The MD Lawyers team also believes it’s important to support future lawyers. That’s why MD Lawyers works with the University of Western Ontario on a number of projects to help law students understand the reality of practicing law.
