Aliza takes a holistic approach to legal representation. She is strongly committed to rehabilitation and reintegrating clients into their families, work force and society and ensuring their long terms needs are covered by their claims. Aliza respects and works with both Eastern and Western medical practices.

Aliza is a strong and caring advocate for children who are dealing with multiple issues including learning disabilities and has been the founder and director of several special education and alternative learning initiatives in her community.

Aliza is actively involved in the Arrowsmith School and is a site director of a satellite program.  Aliza’s journey with Arrowsmith has been featured in many news articles as well as in the best-selling book “The Woman that Changed Her Brain” by Barbara Arrowsmith-Young.

The extensive specialized experience that she gained from her ongoing work with the Arrowsmith School regarding neuroplasticity is a natural fit with her representation of accident victims suffering from cognitive injuries, processing disorders and chronic pain.

Since 2011, Aliza has been a family advisor at Sick Kids and has actively participated in hospital committees and initiatives representing the perspective of families and children.  In 2013, Aliza was elected Chair of the Family Centred Care Advisory Council at Sick Kids and has contributed to numerous abstracts with the Hospital, conferences and speaking engagements.  Aliza is currently also a member of the Faculty Council at the Bloomberg School of Nursing at the University of Toronto.

Aliza was drawn to insurance litigation because of its strong similarities to legal analysis and interpretation of texts that was ingrained within her since she was a child. She draws upon her strengths as a scholar of Judaic law to enhance her method of practice.  She also has a degree in Religious Studies from York University which has given her a strong foundation to relate to clients of all beliefs and cultures.  She is strong proponent of diversity acceptance and sensitivity training.

Dear Aliza,
I once read a quote stating “one’s philosophy is not best expressed in words; it’s expressed in the choices one makes.  In the long run we shape our ends until we die.”  Today I can say a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.  Thank you so much for believing in me… seeing bountiful potential… and slowing down long enough to want to look to my full potential.   Peace for me means personal encouragement against challenges encountered.  A million thanks to you.

Yesterday I took the day off just to process Monday and I have to say I had the best night’s sleep in a very long time.  I can’t tell you how thankful I am for all your hard work during the last few years.  We all agree that we feel that we left no stone unturned and at the end of the day that’s all we asked for.
Again, thank you so much.

Aliza, thank you for everything.  You are a big part of restoring sanity back in my life.

I have been a client of Aliza and her assistant Luana for over two years… I am so thankful to have two of the nicest people I can have on my side. I just wanted to tell the firm what a great, loving, motivated team they have in these two professional women.  I don’t know where I would be without them.  Thank you Luana for your commitment and hard work and thank you Aliza for taking on my cases…. I would definitely refer this duo to everyone.

…Since my case was complicated because of previous illness and the change of insurance company at work, I was given the run around on who was responsible for my benefits… With no income because of a car accident and being denied LTD from work for something from before my car accident, I was referred to Aliza.  From the start, Aliza with her power assistant Martha within 2 or 3 weeks from taking my case, I started to receive benefits.

They would eventually settle three cases for me, with the other parties shaking their heads because Aliza’s case against all of them was so concrete, they had no choice but to settle.  
Recently I was approved for CPP-D after years of fight and appeals… but once again Aliza with Martha proves that nothing can stand in their way for their clients and me especially.  I felt I was their only client..   I could not wish for anyone else to have taken care of me.
My appreciation to Martha and Aliza cannot be put into words….
