About Fiona Korolenchuk
PARTNER & PARALEGAL
Fiona Korolenchuk is a Paralegal, certified by the Law Society of Upper Canada to provide legal services in Ontario. Fiona is particularly happy and proud to announce that she is also a Partner in Elkin Injury Law, a position that she has earned as a result of her tireless efforts in advocating for injured victims and making Elkin Injury Law succeed over the years for our clients.
She is proud to be part of a team that provides exceptional legal representation. She always takes the time to get to know the client. She helps them navigate through the sometimes overwhelming insurance world. She strives to makes a real difference in their lives. Fiona personally cares about people in the way she approaches every claim, with compassion for the client. Her passion for the fight for what’s right has lead to many happy clients and excellent results.
Fiona relishes taking on difficult claims and will persist until the insurer “sits up and takes notice” while never losing sight of the bigger picture: to obtain just compensation for her clients.
Fiona was Chair of the Law Clerk/Paralegal Chapter of the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association from 2001 until 2013. For 2014 & 2015 Fiona was the Education Chair and was active in organizing the curriculum for the bi-annual OTLA conferences. Fiona has written articles for The Litigator, and has been a guest speaker and presenter at numerous OTLA conferences.
Fiona has appeared before the former Financial Services Commission of Ontario “FSCO” in both Mediation and Arbitration Proceedings and more recently, the Licensing Appeal Tribunal “LAT”. In 2017, Fiona was successful in obtaining a Special Award on behalf of a client from her accident benefit insurer as a result of the insurer wrongfully withholding benefits.
Fiona has also appeared before the Small Claims Court, the Social Security Tribunal and the Office of the Commissioner of Review Tribunals (CPP and ODSP) and has assisted with and been involved in Motions in the Superior Court of Justice and the Divisional Court. She participates in Alternative Dispute Resolution settlement conferences, and represents her clients at Mediations and Examinations Under Oath.
She believes not only in “buying local” but also supporting local businesses in an effort to “pay it forward.”
Fiona is a home-town girl having been raised in St. Catharines and has worked her entire career in the community that she grew up in. Fiona and her husband have raised their two children in the Niagara Region. She’s an avid hockey fan and apparently she also sparkles in the mud while exploring Ontario with her husband on their ATV’s.
