Kadey B.J. Schultz
Partner, Schultz Frost LLP
Kadey is an award winning Canadian litigator, and yes she is a woman. In 2015, Lexpert honoured her with the Rising Stars, Top 40 Under 40 Lawyers in Canada Award. In 2014, she was noted by Lexpert as a US/Canada Litigator to Watch. In 2010, Kadey was the recipient of the Canadian Defence Lawyers Association’s Exceptional Young Lawyer Award.
In 2015, after 15 years of establishing her reputation as a recognized expert in the field of insurance litigation, Kadey opened her own firm with Jason Frost. She wants anyone reading this to know that Jason is even more of a feminist than she is!
When Kadey isn’t defending and prosecuting against opportunistic and organized auto, property, life and health fraud, or partnering strategically with insurers, TPAs and self-insured companies to design and enforce prevention and mitigation systems, re-conceive policies, or build training curriculum to raise up those working in the insurance sector, she is extremely active within her insurance community and community at large.
Kadey publishes and lectures extensively with organisations such as the Ontario and Canadian Insurance Adjusters’ Associations, the Insurance Institute, the Canadian Defence Lawyers Association and Osgoode Hall’s Professional Development Program. Since 2014, she has been an adjunct professor with the Faculty of Law at the University of Windsor, where she teaches the Lawyer as Conflict Resolver and the Professional Identity and Legal Skills courses. Previously, she was an adjunct professor at Brock University and for many years was guest faculty with the Education and Development Bureau of the Ontario Provincial Police, and with the Ontario Police College.
Kadey knows her “why” in life. As the mother of two children, one whom is afflicted by the terminal neuromuscular disease Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, Kadey orients everything she engages in to HAPPINESS. That is how she measures value, relationships, engagements and work-life balance. To work towards a cure, while raising awareness for children with disabilities, Kadey is a member of the Board of Trustees for the Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital Foundation and serves on the Council of the Medical-Legal Society of Toronto.
