Sophia’s intellectual, conscientious and direct approach to insurance litigation for over a decade makes her a sought after advocate for matters related to the defence of motor vehicle accident tort and statutory accident benefits disputes, including catastrophic claims, priority and loss transfer claims. Sophia consistently and reliably manages litigation risk and exposure.
In addition to her comprehensive and strong presentation of a case at all stages of litigation, and before the Court of Appeal, Superior Court of Justice, the Financial Services Commission, and private arbitrators, where appropriate, Sophia will skillfully negotiate a resolution through day to day negotiation or mediation.
Sophia’s recent advocacy involves representing the successful party in a loss transfer payment arbitration (Jevco v. Economical, Private Arbitration, 2014), and seeking important clarification concerning the limitation period pertaining to income replacement benefits (Kanapathipillai v. Personal, FSCO, 2009).
As part of her commitment to the profession and legal education, Sophia taught Health Care Law at George Brown College and offered advice to the Firm’s clients at presentations. Within the community, Sophia is an active member of the Hellenic Canadian Lawyers’ Association and has volunteered with Big Brothers Big Sisters.
