Help protect those who need it most

Join the MD Lawyers team

Join a winning team

We are a team of experienced lawyers, law clerks and law students, plus a dedicated support staff.  Our practice is restricted to serious personal injury and medical negligence work. We believe that the only way to prepare a case is to know it inside and out, develop it systematically, and advocate for the client vigorously.

While many firms talk about a team environment, MD Lawyers practises it.  Lawyers and students are well supported with teams of law clerks with extensive experience.  Junior lawyers work closely with one of the senior lawyers, while gaining experience and exposure to other styles of advocacy through discreet assignments for other lawyers in the team.  All team members receive  ongoing training and mentoring on our methods, strategies and technology. We want you to succeed.

MD Lawyers is proud to be technologically advanced allowing our staff the flexibility to work remotely as well as in the office.

At MD Lawyers you have the opportunity to work and grow independently with the support and mentoring of highly experienced personal injury lawyers. We are proud of the work we do for our clients.

Isn’t it time you felt good about what you do?
