We are delighted to announce that Krista Simon, a partner in our personal injury group, was voted the number one lawyer in Vancouver in the 2018 Stars of Vancouver awards by the Vancouver Courier.
We are not surprised by her win. Krista has passionately advocated for her injured clients for 15 years and we know how much she loves her work.
In 2016, Krista was nominated in The Canadian Lawyer’s Top 25 Most Influential awards, recognizing lawyers under 40 making an impact in their communities and in the legal professional.
In 2015, Krista was President of the Trial Lawyers Association of B.C. — only the fourth woman president in the organization’s 35 year history. During her tenure, she forged key relationships with stakeholders and directed the organization’s attention to greater participation in a wide variety of legal issues.
She was the first woman to achieve partnership at Hammerberg and has become a mentor and educator for young lawyers both within and outside this firm.

Partner, Dale McGregor, helped our client previously for a tragic 2008 motorcycle collision that ended her working life. In 2015 and 2016 she was then involved in two further collisions that left her even more disabled.
