Principal Lawyer & Founder

About Jeff

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. Since then, it has reclaimed the title every year.

Jeff and every team member I have talked to have always been kind, considerate and caring. This is my first time ever dealing with a law firm and NOVA Injury Law has helped me turn a horrific situation around. Jeff called me the first time in his way home from work and has called on weekends too. They truly take pride in helping you.

Jeff and his team demonstrated the pinnacle of service, compassion, and dedication to our mutual goal. Being a young professional I have worked with lawyers and law firms in various capacities and I can say with confidence: Jeff sets a standard for straight talk and clear direction. I felt that our interests were aligned, and that he worked diligently on my behalf. Every aspect of the process was fair, well communicated, and transparent. I was kept informed about all details surrounding my case. I would recommend Jeff to anyone needing direction and representation relating to injury law.

Jeff and his team are amazing. Jeff worked on my case for about three years and through all of it I felt supported, heard, and cared for throughout it all. I highly recommend Jeff and his team to anyone. They make a stressful experience a lot easier and make sure you are well informed through the whole process.

I’ve been working with this firm for 4-5 years. Anytime I had any questions or was unsure of anything they took the time to help me understand and answer all of my questions. They have made a hard situation as easy for me as they could. This firm has been amazing!
