Stanford Cummings, Associate Litigation Lawyer
I am an associate lawyer working in the Litigation Department at Tierney Stauffer LLP. I have experience helping clients with personal injury, insurance, employment, corporate litigation and other matters. I have appeared before the Superior Court of Justice, the Ontario Court of Appeal and the License Appeal Tribunal, among other tribunals.
I am an advocate who enjoys the challenge of developing sound legal arguments and then presenting my clients’ cases before the Court and at Tribunals. I pride myself on my ability to focus on the important issues and present compelling and nuanced legal arguments. I also understand that as a lawyer I am a representation of my client in the eyes of the Court. I pride myself on my professionalism and put my best foot forward for my clients.
My favourite part about being a lawyer is being able to work alongside and opposing some of the very best lawyers in the Province. I enjoy being challenged to do the best for my clients as part of a team with decades of experience. I truly enjoy every opportunity to speak on my clients’ behalf and to appear before judges, arbitrators and adjudicators. I get an immense sense of satisfaction when I obtain a successful result for my clients.
I am privileged to be in a position to help my clients through some of the most difficult circumstances they might encounter. Most people are reluctant litigants and I enjoy being able to help my clients not only achieve a successful result but also to understand their options and focus on practical solutions. Being a litigant is hard for people from a financial and emotional perspective. My ability to minimize my client’s stresses lets me know I am making a difference in their lives.
Outside of work, I enjoy staying active, playing golf, hockey and softball as well as spending time at my family cottage. I am a passionate Green Bay Packers supporter and hope to one day attend a game at Lambeau Field. I also enjoy cooking and am always looking for new creative ways to experiment in the kitchen and finding new restaurants around the city.
I also enjoy Star Wars, finding new podcasts and reading, mostly Canadian history, which was one of my majors in University. I love going to concerts and have been lucky enough to see many of my favourite musicians live, usually at Ottawa Bluesfest each year.
