Emery Jamieson wishes to acknowledge the recent passing of two of its former partners, Wayne Drewry and John Agrios, both of whom made significant contributions to the firm during their time with us.
Wayne earned the respect of members of the bar and bench as a forceful but fair advocate for his many clients. He spent countless hours in the training of many members of our firm in the art of litigation. As well, he contributed to many worthwhile community activities. Wayne retired in the mid-1990’s after dedicating 25 years of his career to the firm.
John had a strong interest and expertise in legal ethics. In his areas of practice and other matters, he was extremely skilled and would often offer assistance to other lawyers, in and out of the firm, who sought him out for advice. John also supported many important facets of our community. John practiced with the firm from the mid-1950’s until his appointment to the Court of Queen’s Bench in 1980.
Our firm is very fortunate to have benefitted in so many ways from the many contributions of these two remarkable individuals. We extend our heartfelt thoughts to their families and we will continue to remember the important ways that they helped shape our firm and its reputation.
