Medical malpractice lawyer Ches Crosbie

Ches Crosbie, medical malpractice and class action lawyer in Newfoundland and Labrador

People who know Ches know that he’s a family man with a wife and three grown daughters – one working as a medical resident, one starting a business, and his third attending art school. Ches also enjoys giving back to the community. He recently helped to establish the Sealer’s Memorial and Interpretation Centre in Elliston. Now, he is working with the Placentia Historical Society and Town of Placentia to commemorate of the 75th anniversary of the historic 1941 meeting of Churchill and Roosevelt in Placentia Bay, where they agreed on the foundations for global peace. When Ches isn’t helping clients, spending time with family, or working on contributions to the community, he likes to discuss politics, hunt for moose, and fly fish.

But Ches also has a “lawyer origin story”…

Ches is a graduate of political science at Queen’s University. He studied law at Oxford University in England as a Rhodes Scholar, and upon completion of his program he returned to Canada to go to law school at Dalhousie University, where he met his wife. He was called to the Newfoundland bar in 1983.

He started his legal career by practicing in many different areas, from real estate to business law and everything in between. However, his very first personal injury client changed the course of his career.

Ches’ first personal injury client was a young girl who suffered a serious head injury. His job was to get her a settlement that would ensure her financial security and quality of life forever. Getting a significant settlement for this young girl was so gratifying that he decided to practice personal injury law exclusively from that point on. He has been helping personal injury victims for over 25 years. Ches focuses on helping victims of medical malpractice and he is a leading medical malpractice and class action lawyer in Newfoundland and Labrador.
