Kelsey Nearing

Litigation Lawyer

Kelsey brings a down to earth, common sense approach to helping clients resolve their legal problems. Her practice focuses on personal injury, wrongful dismissal (termination of employment), and long-term disability benefits cases, as well as class actions and other civil claims.

A native Haligonian, Kelsey began her legal career in Alberta after graduating with her Juris Doctor from the University of Calgary. She worked with two of Calgary’s leading civil litigation boutique firms before returning to Halifax to join the team at Valent Legal.

Away from the office, Kelsey tries to get outdoors as much as possible and enjoys running, swimming, skiing, and hiking.
