Practice highlights


David Laird received his Juris Doctor from Dalhousie University’s Schulich School of Law in 2023. Prior to law school, he graduated from the Bachelor of Commerce Co-op Program at Dalhousie University with a major in finance and minor in economics. David also gained experience working as a teacher for the Cree Nation of Chisasibi, a community in northern Quebec, in congruence with the Cree School Board.

Before joining Thomson Rogers as an articling student, David summered at a boutique personal injury and a full service law firm. David advocated on behalf of his clients at various courts across Nova Scotia and Ontario on a variety of civil, family and criminal matters. While in law school, David volunteered with Pro Bono Students Canada on projects regarding child protection law and residential tenancy matters and Lawyers Without Borders. These experiences shaped David’s passion about areas of law wherein he can litigate and assist those experiencing challenging, and often devastating life-altering events, including both the breakdown of families and traumatic personal injuries.

Outside of the office, David enjoys travelling, surfing, spending time with friends and family, and backcountry canoeing.
