Andrew Sprung

Lawyer

Andrew is committed to advocating on behalf of individuals who have been injured or otherwise harmed. At Findlay he loves being part of a team that focuses not just on his clients’ lawsuits but also on maximizing their medical recovery. Andrew takes pride in getting to know his clients and in securing them the compensation they deserve.

Andrew attended law school at the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Law. In addition to his law degree, Andrew holds an Honours degree in History, from the University of Toronto, where he graduated with High Distinction. Andrew has always viewed the legal profession as a way to serve his community. During law school he developed the ability to put people at ease and to simplify complex legal concepts into understandable language through representing low-income tenants in disputes with landlords at Downtown Legal Services and providing legal advice to a diverse client base at the 519 Church Street Community Centre Legal Advice and Referral Clinic. In addition, as the Program Coordinator for Pro Bono Students Canada, Andrew coordinated volunteer placements for over 170 law students at over 60 community organizations, legal clinics, and government agencies.

Before moving to Hamilton and joining Findlay, Andrew articled at a leading litigation firm in downtown Toronto, where he gained experience acting for both plaintiffs and defendants. Notably, this experience included representing plaintiffs in civil sexual assault claims and defending physicians in medical malpractice lawsuits and regulatory proceedings.

Andrew’s current practice involves all aspects of plaintiff personal injury law, including Motor Vehicle Accidents, Occupier’s Liability, and Medical Negligence. Andrew regularly appears at the Superior Court of Justice and has represented his clients at the Ontario Court of Appeal.

Andrew lives in Hamilton’s North End and enjoys taking his Boston Terrier for walks at Bayfront and Pier 4 parks. He loves exploring Hamilton’s restaurants, cheering for the Tiger Cats, and travelling.
