Jennifer L. Beresford

Jennifer studied cognitive science and ethics in her undergraduate years, earning a Specialized Honours B.A. and Certificate of Practical Ethics from York University.  She attained her J.D. from the Faculty of Law at the University of Toronto in 2004 before her call to the Bar in 2005.  Since then, she has participated in many courses focused on ADR and litigation, including Osgoode’s Annual Intensive Trial Advocacy Workshop.   

Jennifer’s expertise lies in both the defence of insurance claims and in the area of insurance coverage.  She defends first party claims against insurers arising from both property damage and under the Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule.  She defends third party claims against insurers and their clients, arising from all types of accidents.  Her expertise in coverage encompasses issues arising under various types of policies, including CGL, auto and private property.   She has appeared before the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, the Ontario Court of Appeal, the LAT, FSCO, and numerous private arbitrators. 

Outside the office, Jennifer enjoys spending time with family and friends, cooking, and attending the gym.  She spends as much time as possible creating stories and LEGO installations with Cooper, her school age son.
