Born and raised in Montreal, Quebec, I attended McGill University where I first obtained a Bachelor's degree in Commerce, followed by both Civil Law (B.C.L.) and Common Law (LL.B.) degrees. I completed the Bar Admissions course in Toronto, and articled with the criminal law firm of McGarvey & Logan. Following my call to the Bar in 1998, I worked in association with criminal lawyer David Midanik.
In 2000, I joined the firm of Worsoff, Silver and over the next 10 years, I conducted hundreds of criminal trials and appeals before the Ontario Court of Justice, the Superior Court of Justice and the Ontario Court of Appeal. I have represented clients all over the province of Ontario and have defended all types of charges under the Criminal Code and Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, including Assault, Murder, Sexual Assault, Drug Possession, Trafficking, Production and Importation, Weapons and Robbery charges, Theft and Fraud.
In 2010, I opened my own practice continuing to defence all criminal and drug related charges. I am currently a member of The Law Society of Upper Canada, The Toronto Lawyers' Association, the Criminal Lawyers' Association, The York Region Law Association and the Peel Region Law Association.
