Laya has devoted her entire career to representing injured people and their claims. While a student at Osgoode Hall Law School, she provided research and litigation support to a personal injury boutique firm.

Laya’s practice is focused on litigation against insurance companies, both in Tort and Accident Benefits claims.

Over the course of more than a decade, Laya has represented clients at many proceedings in the Superior Court of Ontario, Financial Services Commission of Ontario (now the Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Ontario), and the Licensing Appeals Tribunal. She has successfully settled several large cases.

Laya brings her passion for advocating for the individual to her work at Singer Kwinter. Whether she is representing a client against their own insurance company or against another party, she is always focused on the experience of the person, their story, their losses, and their needs. She is committed to helping her clients and achieving the best possible results for them.

Laya was called to the Bar in 2012. She is an active volunteer, respected speaker, and teacher in her community.
