BOB BERNSTEIN PARTNER
Bob's passion for the (dis)ability movement and determination for a more accessible world is fitting with the practice of personal injury law. For as long as he can remember, he has been interested in social justice issues, and personal injury law presented him with an opportunity to balance the scales and advocate for some of the most marginalized individuals in society.
Bob attends court often, and takes carriage of a range of different criminal and civil files. Since being admitted to the bar, Bob has joined the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association and Hamilton Lawyers Association.
Academically, Bob completed his undergraduate studies with an Honors Bachelor of Arts in Sociology, at McMaster University on the Deans' Honor list. He went on to graduate with his Masters of Arts in Labor Studies where he focused his research on persons with (dis)abilities and the hurdles they face. Bob attended law school at the University of Calgary, Alberta. During his studies, he volunteered for Student Legal Assistance where he represented underprivileged people, helping them navigate the complexities of the Alberta Justice system.
While at McMaster University, in 2009, Bob started the only disability student club on campus. "Mac Cares", a McMaster Student Union club, that specializes in advocating for disability rights and fundraising for the Mac Wheelers. The award winning club continues today and is one of Bob's passions.
Bob sits on the Brain Injury Services Foundation Board where he is given the opportunity to fundraise and help create and maintain the strategic plan of the organization. He strongly believes that disabilities, both physical and invisible, need to be addressed and barriers broken down.
