Adam Wawrzkiewicz joined the firm in January of 2014, after articling and working as an Associate with a small immigration and family law practice in Toronto.
Adam was born in Canada soon after his parents immigrated here as refugees from Poland, and is fluent in the Polish language. Although he grew up in the GTA, Adam’s family moved to the USA, where he attended high school, before returning to Toronto to study at University of Toronto’s Trinity College.
In 2008, Adam obtained his Honors B.A. from University of Toronto with high distinction, as an Economics and Philosophy Specialist, and was awarded the John. A. Jessup Memorial Award for having the highest marks in philosophy among his graduating class from Trinity College.
While in law school, Adam volunteered his time at the FCJ Refugee Centre, gaining valuable experience in immigration law. He obtained his Juris Doctor from Osgoode Hall Law School in June of 2012, and was called to the BAR in June of 2013.
Adam has significant experience litigating family law and immigration cases. He has appeared before the Ontario and Superior Courts of Justice in Toronto, Brampton, Oshawa, and Newmarket on a variety of family matters, and has argued judicial review hearings for immigration cases at the Federal Court of Canada.
Adam’s education and experience brings a wealth of knowledge to our team. In addition to his Specialist degree from University of Toronto, Adam has also completed the Canadian Securities Course, giving him a deeper understanding of personal finances and the Canadian financial industry.
Adam will be adding his knowledge and skills to our civil litigation and personal injury matters, and looks forward to expanding his experience in this regard. He is a member of the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association and the Peel Law Association.
