Razmeen JoyaRazmeen Joya is passionate about practicing in the field of immigration and refugee law.

As a former refugee, she has been intimately aware of the multitude of issues that come with immigrating to a new country whether it is for a better life or if it is to seek safety and protection. Having found Canada to be a welcoming place for refugees and new immigrants, she decided to pursue a legal career with a focus on refugee and immigration law.

Prior to her JD degree, Razmeen completed a Bachelor of Arts (Hons.) degree at York University and worked as a legal assistant at Jackman and Associates for three years. She has been a sole practitioner since 2012.
