Personal Injury Lawyers and Queen’s Counsel (Q.C.)

Since you came to this website, you are obviously searching for a personal injury lawyer online. It can be very confusing and frustrating to review multiple websites of personal injury lawyers all claiming to be the best and promising to obtain the highest settlement for you.

What you really need is an independent review process that has already scrutinized the lawyers for you pointing you to a highly skilled lawyer and someone you can trust knowing that lawyer will work hard for you and always be honest with you.

Fortunately, in Canada and Alberta there is such an independent review process. It is called a Queen’s Counsel appointment, designated as “Q.C.” for short.  A Q.C. designation of a lawyer dates to the 16th Century in England. In Alberta, Q.C. applications are reviewed by a screening committee comprised of Judges and other lawyers. The Judges and other members of the legal community make recommendations to the Minister of Justice for Alberta and Solicitor General and Cabinet of Alberta for consideration of a Queen’s Counsel appointment.

This centuries old tradition honors outstanding legal careers.  It has been relied on by people for centuries.

The Q.C. designation is given to lawyers who demonstrate excellence in the practice of law as well as professional integrity and good character. It is a designation of superior achievement in many aspects of the law, sterling reputation and contributions to society in general.

It is very difficult to obtain the designation of Q.C. That is why you won’t find many Q.C.’s listed in other personal injury law firms.  In searching for a personal injury lawyer, review other websites and see how many lawyers have the designation of Q.C., an independent mark of excellence. In Alberta there are 9,567 active lawyers and of those lawyers only 41 lawyers are chosen every two years to receive the honour of Q.C.  That works out to only 20 lawyers per year out of over 9,500 active lawyers.

Brent Handel was chosen a Q.C. on December 30, 2011 after over 20 years as a practicing lawyer.   If you need assistance with your serious complex personal injury, contact Brent Handel, Q.C., and rest assured that you will have access to top quality legal counsel to advance your personal injury claim. However, to be honest, we are very busy and do not take all cases which are presented to us, but if we cannot assist you due to a busy case load we will refer you to another Q.C. or lawyer we know from experience is a top-notch personal injury lawyer.
