In January 2014, Vafa joined Gluckstein Personal Injury Lawyers as a Law Clerk and Client Liaison to the Persian Community for the firm. She brings a decade of Personal Injury law clerk experience earned from her previous employment within a well-established multi-disciplinary Ontario law firm.
As a Law Clerk, Vafa handles many aspects of a client file - from opening a new file to arriving at the settlement while under the assigned lawyer's supervision. The added benefit of speaking in Farsi allows Vafa to create and maintain strong relationships with Persian clients by speaking to them in their own language; to listen to their concerns and be able to make appropriate decisions with the lawyer on their files.
Vafa enjoys meeting with clients both inside and out of the office; keeping clients updated; and, gaining their trust by developing long-term relationships with them. She actively attends community events to expand her network contacts as a referral source to the firm and to staying involved within the community.
