Executives & Committees

We are governed by our Board of Trustees and an executive committee headed by the President. Trustees meet monthly as a board, but every trustee also serves on numerous committees, which oversee the individual functions of the MLA.


Karen Hulan

Karen was called to the Law Society of Ontario in 2003 and has been a member of the Middlesex Law Association since 2006. Karen works at Beckett Personal Injury Lawyers and focuses on representing those injured while in the care of others such as long-term care homes, nursing homes, schools, and daycares as well as people injured in car accidents, slips and falls and other incidents. She is actively involved in her clients’ claims for accident benefits, short-term disability, long-term disability and travel insurance benefits. Outside of the law Karen enjoys spending time with her daughters, hiking, running and paddleboarding. She tries to make the best of winter weather by snowshoeing and cross country skiing.
