Indian Day School Settlement Lawyer: Sam Stevens
Posted: Oct 23, 2020
Hello my name is Sam Stevens,
I am an Algonquian Indian who grew up west of North Bay, Ontario. My home reserve is Kitigan Zibi which is located close to Maniwaki, Quebec. I am an Elder of the Annishnawbeg Nation and the founder of Stevens & Company Law Firm.
Stevens & Company Law is an Indigenous owned and operated law firm located in Parksville, Vancouver Island, BC. We have been celebrating exciting and diverse law practices in Parksville since 1994. Most recently I was Claimant Counsel in the Independent Assessment Process (IAP) for survivors of Indian Residential Schools.
In 2006, a client came to me and asked me to work in Indian Residential School cases. After giving it some thought, I agreed I could start doing this kind of work. She went to Vancouver and interviewed potential clients. She returned the following Monday with eight new clients. And so, this work with residential school survivors began.
I worked exclusively in Residential School Claims from 2006 to 2016 and got to appreciate the unspeakable abuse that should have never happened to the Residential School Survivors. It was a humbling opportunity as I was able to help many who would otherwise have never spoken about the abuse.
Today I have been presented with yet another opportunity to help the many people who more than deserve a chance to heal. I will be offering my services to all Indian Day School survivors to help you file your claim in the class action against the Federal Government of Canada.
We can help you at the very least to fill out your application or for those who have suffered more severe trauma and abuse we can help you to gather all the necessary resources and file your claim. Please note that we will take no more than 5%, of the awarded compensation, as a fee for our services. It is a privilege to work with you, the survivors, as you regain control of your lives and rebuild the person you were meant to be.
