I became a lawyer because I see helping others as my purpose in life.
I have personally gone through the immigration process in both Canada and United States. As an immigrant, I understand the opportunities created by immigration and hope to help individuals, families, and businesses achieve their goals.
I spent the last three years at a full-service, medium-sized firm in Windsor, Ontario. My practice focused on employment law and commercial litigation. Before that, I was at a community legal clinic where my work focused on immigration and landlord and tenant law.
I have litigated a wide variety of claims including human rights, commercial matters, and employment and labour relations cases. I have experience researching and drafting legal memoranda and court documents.
I have trial experience and have appeared as counsel before various tribunals and the Superior Court of Justice.
I am passionate about building a firm that provides legal services that are accessible, innovative and effective.
"Sisu" is a Finnish noun used to describe resilience, determination and courage, especially in the face of adversity. Sisu is about taking a leap of faith and trusting that when the moment comes, we are able to keep up the practice, stand behind the vision and push through the obstacles. We believe many of our clients live with sisu and we join them as we explore what it means to practice law and life with resilience.
