David Derfel – Lawyer Profile
Meet David Derfel
As part of the launch of our new firm website, we would like to introduce our team. We will feature each of our talented team members, beginning with the founder of Derfel Injury law, David Derfel.
With over a decade of practice as a trial lawyer in Toronto, David Derfel is familiar with hard work. Raised in the west end of Toronto, David attended nearby York University, graduating in 1995 with an Honours degree in Business and Marketing. He would go on to the University of Windsor, where he earned his law degree, and was called to the Bar of Ontario in 2002. He would spend the next twelve years developing his skills as a litigator with one of Toronto’s well-known, full-service law firms.
David learned very early in his career that there was more to being a great advocate than knowing the law: successful litigators can see the ways that a client’s story can be told, anticipate the questions and road blocks that may arise, and proactively address these problems. Always a creative thinker, David’s broad litigation experience gives him an ability to identify potential lines of reasoning or arguments that other lawyers might miss.
As a busy professional, David can relate with the ways that an injury or disability can impact the entirety of someone’s life. Dealing with professional clients who had experienced a loss or injury, his main goal is to provide reassuring and pragmatic counsel, so clients can focus on recovery, knowing their claim is in good hands.
Derfel Injury Law was founded on these principles, and David strives to surpass the expectations his clients have about their relationship with their lawyer. He ensures that every question is answered and every concern addressed, creating open lines of communication and truly understanding their perspectives.
