Samir Nawaz is the principal lawyer at Nawaz Law Office, and his practice focus is currently on wrongful dismissal, family law, personal injury and other forms of civil litigation. Despite this concentration, Samir Nawaz and Nawaz Law Office are pleased to offer a range of other legal services, including but not limited to; human rights claims, wills, power of attorneys for property and personal care, real estate transactions, and notarial services.
Prior to establishing the firm, Mr. Nawaz gained several years of experience in the fields of access to information, policy analysis and legal analysis while simultaneously completing his LL.M. at the University of Ottawa. In addition, to an LL.M., Samir has also attained an LL.B from Osgoode Hall Law School, and two Bachelor’s degrees in Biology and Political Science from the University of Western Ontario.
Before being called to the Ontario Bar in 2009, Samir articled with a law firm in Ottawa’s West End which specialized in family law, real estate law and civil litigation. Shortly after articling and completing his LL.M. studies Mr. Nawaz worked in private practice with an emphasis on employment law and wrongful dismissal matters where he was able to obtain for his clients substantial settlements from some of Canada’s largest and most prominent employers. These work related experiences have not only afforded Mr. Nawaz the ability to apply his theoretical knowledge into real world practice, but made him appreciate firsthand the injustices that can transpire in the day-to-day lives of Canadians, particularly in the workplace. Mr. Nawaz’s passion is helping the disadvantaged in their quest to attain justice and relishes the opportunity to make a positive change in the lives of his clients, his family and his community as a whole.
