Shortly after completing her articles at a boutique insurance defence firm in Toronto, Sylvia Guirguis discovered that her passion lay with plaintiffs and insurance claimants. She joined a dedicated personal injury firm in 2015 where she remained until joining the Singer Kwinter family in 2021. Sylvia uses her knowledge gained on the defence side as a tool in strategizing and diligently fighting for her clients’ rights in pursuing justice and fair compensation. Her academic interest in research helps her advance novel legal arguments and informs her assessments of complex cases.
Sylvia recognizes that the clients of Singer Kwinter are often experiencing one of the most difficult periods of their lives. She exercises the same compassion and eagerness to be of service that she has in her past experiences with Parkdale Community Legal Services and Justice for Children and Youth during her legal education, and as a personal injury lawyer since her call to the Bar.
Sylvia received her Bachelor of Arts (Honours) degree from McMaster University in 2011 and a Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree from Osgoode Hall Law School at York University in 2014. She was called to the Bar in Ontario in 2015.
As an avid (and tortured) Toronto Maple Leafs fan, Sylvia patiently awaits the day that she can join a swarm of people celebrating their Stanley Cup win. In the meantime, she does her part for supporting local businesses in her search for the perfect croissant, sushi, pizza, and coffee bean.
