Mallory joined Kazlaw in September 2022 to work alongside Sandy Kovacs. Since being called to the bar in September 2017, Mallory has worked almost exclusively on behalf of plaintiffs with complex personal injury claims.
Mallory has a keen interest in righting systemic wrongs and holding institutions accountable for their actions. For example, Mallory was part of the team that negotiated a first-of-its-kind settlement in Canada to recover health care costs related to the sale and marketing of opioid-based pain medicines. She developed this interest while spending several years under the mentorship of Joe Fiorante, KC, and Reidar Mogerman, KC, working in the areas of plaintiff-side class actions, aviation accidents, and other complex tort claims and appeals. After co-counselling with Sandy on an abuse lawsuit against a Roman Catholic institution, Mallory decided to join Sandy full-time to pursue claims on behalf of survivors and other vulnerable plaintiff litigants.
Of significance, Mallory herself is a former personal injury plaintiff, having been injured at birth by a physician’s negligence, resulting in countless surgeries during her childhood and adolescence. Because of this experience, Mallory has the capacity to identify with and empathize with her clients on a personal level. Resilience, ambition, and authenticity are her strengths.
In her personal life, Mallory enjoys spending time with her husband, Ted, and their energetic Boston terrier, Tuxedo.
