Abigail Herrington


Abigail obtained her law degree from the University of Toronto in 2019. She was called to the bar in New Brunswick in 2020.

Abigail offers the benefit of significant courtroom experience, both as an advocate and in her work with judges. Before joining Lawson Creamer, she articled as a judicial law clerk with the Ontario Superior Court of Justice where she gained in-depth exposure to trial practice at one of the busiest trial courts in the country. 

In law school, Abigail volunteered in the Toronto Small Claims Court and worked at U of T’s student legal clinic, where she represented clients at various courts and tribunals. In her current practice, she regularly appears in the New Brunswick Court of Queen’s Bench and Small Claims Court for motions and hearings. 

Abigail is thrilled to have been able to return to her hometown of Saint John and is currently developing a broad civil and commercial litigation practice that includes labour and employment law, debt collection, real estate disputes, and general breach of contract claims.

Community Contributions

Abigail cares about the Saint John community. She currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Loch Lomond Villa Foundation and as director and secretary for the Saint John Yoga Co-Op Ltd.

Abigail also contributes to the development of the legal profession by meeting with students interested in a career in law and appearing as a guest lecturer in UNB Law’s Trial Practice and Labour and Employment Law courses. In February 2022, she presented at the Canadian Bar Association – New Brunswick Branch 2022 Mid Winter Conference on administrative law issues concerning COVID-19 Mandatory Orders and Government Directives.

Outside the Office

Having lived away from home for eight years, Abigail spends most of her spare time rediscovering Saint John and enjoying time with her family. When she’s not working, you can usually find her at a coffee shop catching up with friends or at the dog park with her rescue dog, Duke.
