Showcase of Courage

(Stories of perseverance and courage from personal injury clients and the charitable organizations who assisted them in their journey of recovery)

This year Thomson, Rogers celebrates its 80th anniversary as a law firm in Toronto. Looking back through the years we fondly recall the many clients who have touched our hearts and inspired us with their courage and perseverance. Our admiration for them cannot be easily measured, but we want to try. We invite you to help us share in our clients’ successes and honour the invaluable contribution that health care providers have made to their recovery.

To commemorate, Thomson, Rogers will donate $80,000 to some of the charitable organizations who have helped our personal injury clients and their families. The distribution of these funds is up to you.

Here is how you can help. Within this site, you will read and see videos of our clients detailing their journeys. They candidly and earnestly talk about their own health care providers and the organizations that assisted them throughout their recovery. All you need to do is vote for the charities listed below that you would like us to honour. The deadline for voting is November 4th.

Our 80th anniversary is all about the celebration of our clients’ journeys and those that helped them along the way. We hope that by sharing our clients’ stories you will be equally inspired.
