Devin is a member of our litigation team, and his practice includes personal injury, insurance claims, judicial and administrative review, commercial disputes, Aboriginal rights, human rights, and institutional abuse claims. Recently, Devin has also become involved with the representation of young athletes.

Born in Truro, NS, Devin was raised in Montreal, QC. Prior to joining Conrad Dillon Robinson Law, Devin completed his articles with a major Nova Scotia law firm and was an associate with that firm for six years. Over the past several years, Devin has gained greater experience working in a smaller firm environment.

Over the years, Devin has developed an expertise and passion for obtaining compensation for survivors of physical and sexual abuse. He has represented victims of abuse perpetrated by Catholic priests, staff at various Nova Scotia youth facilities and government employees.

Devin has appeared before all courts in Nova Scotia, as well as the Federal Court of Canada.

Devin lives in Halifax with his partner Sandi. Their living room features a home Tiki Bar which boasts the unconfirmed largest collection of rum in Nova Scotia. They are also very active with CrossFit, running and curling. As a sports fanatic, Devin eagerly awaits the return of his beloved Montreal Expos. In the meantime, he lives and dies by the wins and losses of the Nashville Predators, New Orleans Saints, Queensland Reds and Brisbane Broncos.
