“Working in personal injury is never an abstract legal exercise. Traumatic injuries impact every aspect of a client’s life, and the most positive outcomes we can achieve are grounded in the larger reality of who they are as individuals, and of the life and future they want to rebuild.”
Luke Maynard was a late arrival to the practice of law, trading the abstract world of the ivory tower for the opportunity to make a meaningful, hands-on difference in the lives of clients and the broader community. A native of London, Ontario, he spent several years on the West Coast, returning with a PhD in English Literature.
After stretches of teaching everything from Beowulf to slam poetry, and a few misadventures as an indie musician and novelist, Luke attended law school at the University of Toronto. He volunteered at Toronto’s Downtown Legal Services, Pro Bono Students Canada, Artists’ Legal Advice Services, and Advocates for Injured Workers, where he supplemented his studies with hands-on advocacy experience.
Luke completed his licensing through Ryerson’s Law Practice Program and was called to the Bar in 2020. He joined Auger Hollingsworth’s Toronto office in January 2021, and is excited by the ways in which emerging technology has enhanced the firm’s closeness as a tight-knit team, even as it grows from one city to the next.
Outside of work, Luke is still active in the arts & letters. A voracious consumer (and occasional producer) of books and music, he still writes daily when he’s not exploring exotic destinations, whether around the world or around the immensely diverse city he calls home.

”Just wanted to take a minute and thank you for your advice and expertise in all aspects of taking care of my best interests.

I have sent two and both were accepted as far as they have told me and i hope things turn out well for all parties concerned.”
“I would like to take this time to thank you for your support, and above all your compassion for people’s feelings, and your helpful staff, always cheerful. I really enjoyed working with you. Brenda, I am happy you were there for me. Thanks so much.”
During your initial strategy session, we will assist you in creating a strategy in how to best pursue your claim, whether it be the result of a car accident claim, 18 wheeler injury, or, other kind of personal injury claim.
There are 5 points to your free claim strategy session:
First, we will listen to your story. You will have a chance to tell everything to someone who wants to hear what happened to you.
Based on the information you provide, we will give you our best advice on both what claims you have and the next steps you should consider to go forward with your claim.
If you claim is something that we think we can help you with, we will explain the services that we can provide for you, and what the next steps are that we should take. We will start working immediately.
If your matter is something that we do not think we can help you with, then we will attempt to put you in contact with another lawyer that might be able to help you.
Either way, what should happen is we will put to rest some of the unknowns that you may be experiencing. We will start to shed light on what you can expect and how to best pursue the benefits you deserve.
