Christopher was the first in his family to pursue higher education and knows what it feels like to fight against the odds and overcome adversity. Throughout his extensive pro bono work he kept compassion at the core of his service, which he now brings to his personal injury practice. His background and life experience allow him to genuinely connect with his clients as he seeks to understand their needs and interests.

Community Service

Christopher is passionate about equitable access to the legal system and has given considerable time to pro bono work in his past. He was a dedicated member of Pro Bono Students Canada for 3 years while at Osgoode Hall. During his tenure, he co-founded and operated a free legal clinic designed to assist those who needed help obtaining I.D. crucial for accessing public services, including health cards and photo ID cards. He also worked on a project with small businesses that provided them with legal information related to the common concerns of new entrepreneurs. Christopher believes that continuing to give his time to pro bono projects is his way of giving back to the community in a meaningful and impactful way.
