Barbara Legate is the founding partner of Legate. Barbara has engraved her vision of excellence in personal injury litigation and service to clients onto the firm. For Barbara, every case is personal. With every client, she asks, "what would I expect if I was sitting in his chair? How can I help my client get back what she has lost, or protect the future of this family?"
After over 35 years of practice, Barbara has earned a high level of respect for her thoroughness, legal acumen and results achieved for children, adults and families affected by injury caused by negligence.
Barbara 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. For Barbara, representation of children injured by negligence at the outset of their lives is a passion.
