Michael T. Mollison, Q.C.
Certified Specialist in Civil Litigation
Mike is a titan of the local Civil Litigation bar. He is in his 50th year of practicing law. He has been a partner in several prominent local firms over the past 50 years, including those he founded. The number of people in our local bar with his Civil Litigation and Civil Trial experience can be counted on one hand. At Harris Law, we are ecstatic that this experience will now be available to help the other lawyers, staff and most importantly, the clients, of Harris Law, Personal Injury Lawyer P.C.
Mike was called to the Ontario Bar in 1968. He articled for Peter Madorin, Q.C. (another still practicing Civil Litigation titan). In 1970, he joined Coulter Osborne, as he then was, in partnership in Kitchener. Mr. Justice Osborne was later appointed to the Supreme Court of Ontario, and later elevated to the Court of Appeal. Mike learned from and with Justice Osborne, and carried on his Civil Litigation Practice, growing a prominent and respected local firm specializing in Insurance Defence Litigation.
Mike’s skills have been recognized with his appointment as Queen’s Counsel, in 1978, and later receiving a specialist designation in Civil Litigation. He has had the respect and admiration of the local and provincial litigation bar long before receiving such formal recognition.
Mike has acted predominantly for Insurance Companies over the last 50 years, until recently. He now carries an active practice helping victims of accidents, victims of other people’s negligence, and victims of improper or unfair denials from insurance companies. Mike knows how these companies think; what makes them ‘tick’. At Harris Law, we can now put this considerable and valuable expertise to the advantage of all our clients. With Mike, Harris Law’s lawyers now have almost 100 years of combined experience in the personal injury law specialty field.
Michael is a member of the Advocate’s Society, the Waterloo Law Association, and the Ontario Insurance Adjuster Association. He is a longstanding member of the Westmount Golf and Country Club, and the President (for life) of the Linda Mollison fan club.
We are planning a retirement celebration for Mike's incredible career. Please check back in the future for details, or on our facebook page.
