Pasha Vaziri (of counsel)
Something I’m Very Proud Of…
My international upbringing. Having grown up in Toronto, Canada, I grew up around people from every corner of the world. Though I haven’t actually traveled to all these countries, I feel as though I have. My friends allowed me to participate in the music, the food, and customs of their respective homelands. It instilled in me an appreciation for diversity.
What I Love About My Work…
Garnering a potential client’s trust. By the time someone seeking legal representation contacts an attorney, the situation is dire. There is a lot at stake. Clients are overwhelmed if not afraid. It’s important to provide competent advice. It’s also important to foster a dynamic of trust and empathy. It’s beyond rewarding to get a client’s ultimate vote of confidence—their desire that you represent them in one of the most important situations they’ve encountered.
