About Carranza LLP

Juan Carranza started Carranza LLP in 1994 following a personal experience where he felt that an insurance company's representatives took advantage of an immigrant family because English wasn't their mother tongue. He and his partners have built Carranza LLP based on social justice for all, and to be a voice for those who might not normally have one in the personal injury and litigation system.

Serving Ontario’s diverse communities has given us firsthand experience and insight into how perceptions, prejudices and translation errors can seriously influence your treatment or the documentation prepared by insurance doctors, police, employers and insurance companies. The perceptions of insurance adjusters, arbitrators, judges and juries have the power to influence your settlement. They will often be unfamiliar with your background and culture, and can make assumptions that negatively affect your compensation.

As a firm, we at Carranza stand behind the idea that it is no longer enough for a lawyer to understand the law and the legal system; in order to provide proper and quality representation, we must also understand your unique circumstances, your language and your culture.

We set our standards high for providing experienced legal representation in 17 languages and ensuring that the legal team assigned to your case is a good cultural match, so that no communicative boundaries exist and no key details are overlooked. In addition to speaking multiple languages, many of our staff are first and second generation Canadians, so we are better fit to understand the immigrant experience and effectively guide you through the turmoil that follows serious car accidents.

We would be honoured to utilize our mosaic of experience and our record of victories to help you achieve the best possible settlement. 


OUR PROMISE TO YOU

When you hire us as your legal team, our entire law firm is behind you. Our collaborative team structure and approach ensures that each client benefits from our culturally collective experience and advice.

COVID-19 highlights an urgent need to expand access to healthcare for all

by User Not Found | Jun 15, 2020
The Canadian health care system has left some of the most marginalized segments of our communities behind as many groups regularly find themselves uninsured, including newly-landed permanent residents, migrant workers, international students, undocumented people and returning Canadians.
 
But health care's a human right and this should not be happening in Canada under any circumstances, especially not in the midst of a global pandemic. Denying access to healthcare is a threat to public health.
 
We need to ensure universal access to health care that does not discriminate based on our immigration status or ability to pay. Ensuring access to health care for everyone improves the health and safety of our communities as a whole!
