Since joining Simpson Thomas & Associates Troy has appeared in Provincial Court, Supreme Court and the Court of Appeal on behalf of his clients who have sustained injuries.  At the 2012 annual conference of personal injury lawyers, he published and presented a paper on “What happens when a client changes lawyers or a lawyer changes firms”.

Prior to dedicating his practice to accident victims, Troy spent a decade as an engineer.  Over that time, he developed a precision and thoroughness that he brings to his practice as a lawyer.  His technical background gives him a unique insight to certain issues, such as the mechanics of motor vehicle accidents.  Troy utilizes this background to his clients’ advantage in negotiating and litigating ICBC claims.
