About Jacoub's Camp

Gluckstein Personal Injury Lawyers proudly sponsored a new initiative, Jacoub's Camp, in support our client, The Favila Family. Jacoub’s Camp is The Favila Family’s most treasured vision; a place where families who have been adversely impacted by the negligence of drivers can come together for support, understanding and guidance. Jacoub’s Balloon Race was the launch of this dream and was our way of honouring our client while promoting the importance of responsible driving.

Tragically, seven year old Jacoub Favila was killed in a hit-and-run incident on Highway 401 while travelling with his family on New Year's Day 2013.

The Inaugural Jacoub's Camp, May 30, 2015

Gluckstein Lawyers hosted the Inaugural Jacoub's Camp at Herongate Barn in Pickering, Ontario. It was a very special day, one that we will not soon forget. We would like to extend a special thank you to our special guests; the Favila Family, all of our clients and their families, the Honourable Chris Alexander, PC, MP, Ajax-Pickering, Regional Councillor David Pickles and Martin Graham (OPP) for attending the inaugural Jacoub’s Camp. Charles Gluckstein expressed;

"Jacoub’s Camp and balloon launch was a terrific event to which we were very proud to host and recognize our clients. The event was significant in that we honoured the Favila Family with a tribute to Jacoub. In addition, we were thrilled that our clients attended from far and wide to share their stories of perseverance despite suffering their own loss or disability. The day was shared with almost 50 kids who showed enthusiasm and spirit in completing many activities and games throughout the event. Our philosophy as a firm is that "you are a client for life". It is encouraging to see that we continue to expand our family of staff and lawyers to include a connection with the clients and community that we serve well beyond the time span of a case."
