My story begins in February 1997 on a snowy night in the heart of winter. My family and I had just landed in Montreal’s international airport. With us were several oversized suitcases and even bigger dreams. Growing up, I saw just how much my parents fought to make a new life for us. The experience was formative and shaped me into who I am today: a fearless champion of the underdog. It’s what makes me passionate about pursuing justice for the injured, the dismissed, the exploited and the downtrodden.

 

Fighting for your rights against Big Business, Big Insurance and Big Government is what I relish. Early in my career, I spearheaded a multi-million-dollar class-action lawsuit on behalf of thousands of misclassified working managers. I have had the pleasure of acting for clients before various courts and tribunals including the Small Claims Court, the Superior Court, the Ministry of Labour, and the National Industrial Relations Board.

 

I earned a bachelor’s degree in political science with honours, enhancing my experience during that time by working as a parliamentary aide for a Member of Parliament in Canada’s House of Commons. I went on to complete my law degree at the University of Ottawa, where I quickly gained a strong appreciation for free speech, ideological diversity, and critical thinking. I was fortunate enough to undergo an internship in Dubai, U.A.E., with Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, an elite multinational American law firm. During law school, I completed an exchange semester in Barcelona which cultivated my leadership and problem-solving qualities.

 

I am active in my community, and I engage regularly with local charitable organizations and faith communities. I have published legal articles and I mentor both law students and those aspiring to be lawyers.

 

As my client, I can guarantee you one thing: I will fight relentlessly for you. If you, or a group of people you are associated with have been wronged, please contact me to discuss your rights.
