Shafic is an Associate lawyer in the Accident and Personal Injury Team. He helps people who have been injured in motor vehicle collisions and slip and falls.
Shafic was raised in East Hants and was a volunteer firefighter for several years. It was during his service as a firefighter that he saw first-hand the injuries that drivers, passengers, and pedestrians can suffer from motor vehicle collisions.
Shafic offers free consultations to his clients so he can explain to them whether they have a personal injury claim and, if so, whether it makes sense for them to hire a lawyer. Shafic does his work on a contingency basis, which means clients only pay fees if he is successful in obtaining a settlement or reward for them.
