Mr. Thiele has a diverse business background in agriculture and the hospitality industry in Eastern Ontario.  After attending University in Maine, U.S.A., and Glasgow, Scotland, he returned to Ontario to complete his law degree at Queen's University at Kingston, Ontario.  Mr. Thiele was called to the Ontario Bar in 1997 and has practiced law in Ottawa since that time.  In 2001 he formed a law partnership with two colleagues.  The firm expanded, added associates as its reputation grew and two additional partners were added in 2010.   His firm, Quinn Thiele Mineault Grodzki LLP, began to restrict the practice to personal injury work in mid 2010 and presently this makes up the majority of the cases the firm takes on.  Mr. Thiele retains his passion for residential landlord and tenant law.  He maintains a significant blog that can easily be found in a Google search and he continues to teach Landlord and Tenant law to paralegal students at Algonquin College who are seeking to be licensed as paralegals by the Law Society of Upper Canada.  Mr. Thiele's practice consists of landlord and tenant law and general litigation including personal injury, property losses, insurance claims, and disability insurance matters.  Mr. Thiele most enjoys representing individuals before various administrative law tribunals, boards and committees.
