Savannah has appeared and obtained various reported decisions before the Financial Services Commission, the License Appeal Tribunal, and the Ontario Superior Court.

Savannah’s goal is that each client feel;
welcome, seen, heard, valued, loved, and supported.

Not only do I understand the intricacies of the law surrounding traumatic brain injury I know what the families are going through because I have lived it.

Savannah understands the complex nature of cases and not only fights hard for her clients, but provides compassionate support to victims and their families.

Savannah has placed a personal focus on helping victims who suffer from traumatic brain injuries as a result of her own family’s tragic experience in dealing with her only Aunt who was a victim of a catastrophic pedestrian accident resulting in a traumatic brain injury.

Savannah is a former college athlete playing both basketball and tennis. Athletics continue to be very much an important part of her life. On her own time, Savannah enjoys participating in endurance sports such as jogging and cycling with a particular addiction to her Peloton. Savannah also is an avid reader and a student of Stoic Philosophy. To Savannah, practicing law is similar to training for a marathon- one step at a time, repeatedly and consistently.

Savannah would describe her legal style as scrappy, objective and confident. Savannah plays all the way to the last whistle and prides herself on being the hardest worker in the room.
