ProfileBarbara founded Legate & Associates, and ingrained her vision of personal injury litigation and service to clients on the firm. Barbara firmly believes that we should put ourselves in our clients' shoes and ask, "what would I want if I was in his or her situation?" That has led to a client-centred team approach focused on getting to know each client, ensuring written and verbal reporting, and client education so each person feels empowered and in charge of his or her case. In 30 years of practice, Barbara has become known for strength and results in her representation of clients, and as a respected, thorough opponent by her peers and colleagues. She has argued significant cases in a wide variety of situations, from administrative tribunals to the Ontario Court of Appeal. She and her team won a critical decision for children suffering birth trauma in Liebig v. Guelph General Hospital and Ayanbadejo which confirmed the rights of children to sue for medical malpractice.
