Deanna Okun-Nachoff

Partner

Deanna is one of the most respected immigration lawyers in Canada, but as far as we're concerned she's just the nicest person we could ever hope to work with.  She joined the firm in 2010 after working for many years as the executive director and staff lawyer of a non-profit serving the needs of foreign live-in caregivers.  Deanna is a crack immigration litigator, winning all the cases she should and a few she probably shouldn't, and frankly we're glad we never have to face off against her in court.  When she's on your side, you'll find her tenacity tempered by a deep compassion and a genuine desire to make your life better.

In between solving seemingly unsolvable problems for her clients, Deanna somehow finds time to volunteer with several non-profits, and to compete with Meika for having the cutest office dog.

Deanna is your go-to expert on live-in caregivers, medical inadmissibility, human trafficking and immigration litigation before the Federal Court and the Immigration and Refugee Board.
