Ken Kelertas' Presentation

This presentation will be a short overview of Rule 20 of the Rules of Civil Procedure, and a review of some recent case law. I will also speak to the difference between motions for summary judgement in the Superior Court and a motion to strike a claim or defence in the Small Claims Court.

Inga Andriessen's Presentation

This presentation will highlight the procedures for obtaining Civil Contempt Orders in Small Claims Court as well as Superior Court.   It will touch on cases where lawyers have been found in Contempt and provide some guidance on assisting clients who have been found in Contempt.

Bruce Hillyer's Presentation

The theme of this presentation is that jury trial lawyers should be focusing on a jury’s fears when presenting their cases in courtrooms.  Lawyers should be earning the jury’s trust in everything they do.

Bruce Hillyer is one of the founding partners of what is now Martin & Hillyer Associates. He was called to the bar in 1972 and has over 45 years of experience as a trial lawyer representing clients in the Burlington area. His practice is focused on civil litigation, with an emphasis on personal injury, medical malpractice and insurance disputes.

He has appeared before an extensive array of administrative boards and tribunals over his 45 years of practice, and has represented his clients and their causes at all levels of court in Ontario, as well as the Supreme Court of Canada.

Bruce was a founding member and the first president of the Ontario Trial Lawyers’ Association (OTLA), an organization whose mandate is to “fearlessly champion, through the pursuit of the highest standards of advocacy, the cause of those who have suffered injury or injustice.” He remains actively involved in OTLA, as well as its American cousin, the American Association of Justice.

His clients have come from just about every part of the world. Representing these clients has given him the opportunity to travel to many countries around the world. Bruce’s cases have encompassed everything from the most serious criminal cases (including 9 successful homicide cases) through a vast variety of personal injuries caused by an equally vast number of causes.

While Bruce’s proudest accomplishment was founding the ONTARIO TRIAL LAWYERS’ ASSOCIATION some of his other career milestones include the following:

  • Selected by his peers as the Plaintiff Lawyer of the Year in 2010 in the area of personal injury litigation for all of Ontario
  • Selected by his peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in Canada 2008, 2009 and 2010 in the field of Personal Injury Litigation
  • Named in “The National Post” listing as one of the Best Personal Injury Lawyers in Canada (April 18, 2007)
  • Helping victims of 911 through “TRIAL LAWYERS CARE”

Every first appointment with a client is a “high” for Bruce.  He enjoys meeting people, learning about their lives and careers and most importantly, helping them solve whatever their legal problem may be.
