The Backstory

Jeff is the owner of NOVA Injury Law. His firm was created to assist injury victims and disabled workers with their legal claims. Before launching NOVA Injury Law, Jeff worked for a large regional firm in the area of insurance law before moving to a plaintiff-side personal injury boutique. NOVA Injury Law is now known as an honest, responsive, and progressive firm committed to their client.

Born in Halifax, Jeff attended Saint Mary's University and completed an honours degree in Criminology. During his time at Saint Mary's, Jeff founded the SMU Community Development Initiative Levy, a student-backed fund providing seed funds to local community-oriented projects. He served as a Student Association Director and sat on the Academic Senate. Since graduating, Jeff has coached the University's legal case debating society.  Jeff was honoured in 2015 with the SMU Alumni of the Year award.

Jeff completed his legal training at top-ranked Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto. While at Osgoode Hall, Jeff participated in various pro bono projects, including the Legal Aid Clinic and the Medico-Legal Society of Toronto. The latter, a joint effort between doctors and lawyers to ensure quality patient care, brought Jeff before the Health Professions Appeal and Review Board where he represented clients who were victims of unprofessional or negligent treatment by a physician. In addition to his pro bono efforts, Jeff was the leader of the Law School's Academic Student Government and vice-chair of Faculty Council. Upon graduation, he was awarded the Osgoode Hall Gold Key Prize.

In 2013, Jeff was named by 21Inc, the region's entrepreneur innovation group, as one of Atlantic Canada Top 50 Emerging Leaders for his leadership and community building projects.

In 2016, NOVA injury Law was ranked as one of the top three personal injury law firms in Halifax. It reclaimed its title in 2017 and again in 2018.


Jeff is the author of two books he wrote to help teach accident victims and disabled workers about the legal rights. These educational resources are available for free by contacting the firm directly.
