Aleah joined Flaherty McCarthy LLP after completing her articles with a prominent plaintiff personal injury firm in her hometown of Timmins. She has experience across a wide range of matters, including complex motor vehicle accident and medical malpractice files, slip and falls, and disability insurance disputes.
Her civil litigation practice primarily comprises the defence of motor vehicle accident tort and statutory accident benefit disputes, in addition to various other insurance matters.
Aleah completed her J.D. at Osgoode Hall Law School, where she was awarded the Fasken Martineau Prize for standing first in tort law. Throughout her time at Osgoode, Aleah served on both the Community & Legal Aid Services Program and Pro Bono Students Canada, providing legal services to low-income, unrepresented criminal and civil litigants.
Prior to law school, Aleah earned her Honours degree in Psychology at the University of Ottawa, where she graduated with Summa Cum Laude.
In her spare time, Aleah enjoys restaurant hopping and experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen, getting her sweat on at the gym, and international travel.
