Jamie joined CFM in 2007. His practice focuses on product liability and aviation cases, and he assists on class action lawsuits. Jamie’s pre-law background includes a B.A. in math with a major in computing science from the University of Waterloo. The parallels between math and law including the shared focus on logic and efficient problem solving have served Jamie well in his role as counsel in his chosen areas of practice.
“I enjoy getting to the bottom of complex engineering or operational issues in aviation accidents – figuring out what factors contributed to an accident and what safety improvements manufacturers can make.”
Jamie also has international experience in intellectual property law gained while spending a law school co-op term in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Outside the office, Jamie walks dogs for the SPCA, teaching them leash skills and making them more adoptable. He also skis, practices Brazilian jiu jitsu, and is working towards his private pilot’s license. “It’s helping me learn about certain piloting issues, but I’m flying more for pleasure than for business.”
