Edward W. Graves, known to his friends and colleagues as “Ted”, was born and raised in St. Catharines, Ontario. After attending law school at the University of Western Ontario in London, he returned to begin the practice of law at the Sullivan Mahoney Law Firm in St. Catharines.
Ted’s success in the courtroom began early in his career when he was appointed Queen’s Counsel in 1976. He was the youngest appointee in Canada. He has tried more personal injury cases than any other lawyer practising law in the city of St. Catharines today.
In 1992 Ted was designated by The Law Society of Upper Canada as a Specialist in Civil Litigation, a distinction held by less than 2% of all lawyers practising in Ontario today. Ted was the recipient of an Ontario Brain Injury Legal Fellowship award in the year 2000.
Ted is a past president of the Lincoln County Law Association, a former director of the Advocate’s Society and a current member of the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association.
In 1986 Ted recognized the need for first class legal representation for injury victims. He founded Graves & Associates, a small dedicated group of lawyers focusing entirely upon the rights of innocent accident victims to compensation for their losses.
To his clients Ted delivers experience, compassion, and a skill developed over more then 40 years of advocacy before the courts. He loves his work and welcomes any inquiries at no cost to the potential client.
