Abigail Herrington

Information

Abigail obtained her law degree from the University of Toronto in 2019. She is called to the bar in Ontario (June 2020) and New Brunswick (September 2020).

During law school, Abigail worked for two summers as a caseworker at Downtown Legal Services, representing clients at the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal, the Ministry of Labour, the Ontario Labour Relations Board, and the Ontario Court of Justice.

After law school, she completed her articles as a judicial law clerk with the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, where she gained in-depth exposure to litigation and trial practice at one of the busiest trial courts in the country.

Abigail is thrilled to have been able to return to her hometown of Saint John and is currently developing a broad practice that includes labour and employment law, debt collection and enforcement, and civil litigation.

Community Contributions

In law school, Abigail was heavily involved as a volunteer with Downtown Legal Services, the University of Toronto’s poverty law clinic, and hopes to continue advancing access to justice in New Brunswick.

Abigail loves to speak with students who are considering law school or a career in law and is always happy to share her time with anyone interested in joining the profession.
