Lara Fitzgerald-Husek, Lawyer, Oatley Vigmond

Lara completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Toronto in Ethics, Society, and Law and International Relations. She obtained her Juris Doctor and Master of Public Administration at Queen’s University and also completed the International Business Law program at the Bader International Study Center in England. Lara was called to the bar in 2013.

Lara joined Oatley Vigmond after practicing insurance defense at a leading national firm. The experience of representing many of Canada’s largest insurers has provided Lara with valuable insight into personal injury claims, allowing her to better serve her clients.

Lara’s practice focuses solely on personal injury law, including motor vehicle accidents, accident benefits, medical malpractice, occupier’s liability, and product liability cases.

For Lara, the most rewarding aspect of her work is helping clients achieve the best possible outcomes.

When Lara is not practicing personal injury, she enjoys traveling, spending time outdoors, and amateur scuba diving.
