VICTIM REMEMBERED AS DECENT LAWYER
Kevin Dunsmuir, one of the victims of a deadly East Gwillimbury, Ont., fire, was a brave and professional lawyer, according to a Toronto litigator who knew him.
Dunsmuir, his wife, and two sons died in the blaze waiting for help that never came on the morning of March 29.
Dunsmuir practised law in Newmarket, Ont., at Dunsmuir Advocates. His practice included significant work in family mediation. "He was a decent, straightforward and competent professional," Toronto lawyer James Morton wrote in a blog entry about Dunsmuir.
"Someone you could talk to by phone and who always focused on substance, not the nonsense litigation tends to attract." Dunsmuir was "brave as well as professional," added Morton, who called his death a tragic loss.
