MEET DAN FRIDMAR
Prior to starting the FPC, Dan developed his skills at a medium-sized, fast-paced law firm in Vaughan, Ontario. In a short time, Dan amassed a voluminous amount of experience in litigation, negotiation, and client management. In addition to his legal endeavours, Dan has spearheaded many academic initiatives, including authorship of legal blogs and articles, presenting at various professional development lectures for clients, and acting as a content-producer/course-designer at the Credit Institute of Canada. As such, Dan effectively implements the creativity obtained in his academia with the practical issues facing his clients.
Dan shaved-off a year of his undergraduate studies at York University by securing an early acceptance into Osgoode Hall Law School. He graduated from York University summa cum laude and received the Law Society Prize, an award recognizing the highest academic average in his graduating class. During his time at Osgoode, Dan was immersed in both curricular and extra-curricular activities – such as playing an active role in the Osgoode Mediation Clinic by volunteering as a mediator with the Toronto Small Claims Court and the North York community.
In his limited spare time, Dan loves to perform at Open-Mics with his guitar, contribute to the visual and theatrical arts, and mentor high school and university students. He is also heavily involved in the Russian-speaking Jewish community.
