Weston is a civil litigator and the founding lawyer of Powell Litigation.
His firm helps individuals and small to medium-sized businesses in Southern Ontario who are involved in lawsuits as plaintiffs or defendants.
For people unfamiliar with the court system, there are essentially two kinds of lawyers: those who sit at desks drafting documents (wills, contracts, etc.) and those who represent you in court when things go wrong. You could think of it as the difference between a carpenter and a firefighter. They both work with wood, but their jobs are very different. For Weston, the choice was obvious. He’s passionate about fighting fires.
In addition to being a renowned trial lawyer, Weston is also a sought after speaker, regularly presenting before other lawyers at professional development events as well as being brought in house for speaking engagements at various companies.
When he’s not in the office or the courtroom, you can find him walking in the woods with his wife, Caroline, their two-year-old daughter, Berkeley, and their dog, Zoey.
In 2020, Weston was voted the Best Lawyer in the Toronto Star Readers’ Choice Awards.
