Counsel in Focus: Sodaba Rameh

Sodaba knew she wanted to be a lawyer from a young age. It didn’t matter what area of law because everything was rooted in law. No matter the focus, no matter the field, no matter the specialty, Sodaba would be a lawyer and help people. As she progressed in her education, Sodaba reviewed her choices and chose to specialize in immigration law. She covers everything from refugee matters, to economy class (people who want to work, study or visit in Canada) to business class (people who want to start businesses here or transfer their business from another country).

Law is one of those fields that touches every aspect of life – whether it is immigration, business, or criminal; everything we do is somehow rooted in law.

– Sodaba Rameh of Rameh Law


Sodaba went to law school in Canterbury, England at the University of Kent. She chose an overseas school because she wanted an international experience. It exposed her to the judicial systems of other countries: what they focus on and how they operate. She traveled to France and Belgium to work with refugee camps, and she also worked on legal projects in Gaza, Palestine. Returning to Canada, Sodaba completed a Masters of Law specializing in Canadian common law, in order to gain a Canadian law experience.

Before choosing immigration, Sodaba worked at a criminal law firm. There’s a lot of criticism around defending criminals, but it was a valuable experience for her. “What that area of law taught me was that no matter who [you] are or what situation you are in, you need representation,” she says. She brings that mentality to immigration as well. Everyone deserves representation and everyone deserves to have a judgment that’s fair and free of mistakes.

While she was in school, she had the opportunity to join Amnesty International and be part of the teams that visited the refugee camps during the Refugee Crisis of 2015. They did their best to provide financial and medical aid but too often it felt insufficient considering all that the people had gone through, fleeing their homes and being separated from their loved ones. Sodaba spent many hours talking to them, hearing their stories, sharing their pain and their hope for the future. It became personal. It intensified the desire to help, to do something that will brighten someone’s day, change someone’s life. Her time with them left a deep and lasting impression.

Her involvement with Gaza, Palestine was through a partnership between her school and Legal Aid in Palestine. The objective was to find a way to follow the Palestinian laws while empowering women and giving them a voice all within the boundaries of the law. They focused on women and the struggles they were facing. It required becoming familiar with Palestinian culture and its legal framework. This was an invaluable experience and provided insight into a legal system completely unlike that of Britain or Canada.

Any type of immigration work you do will impact someone’s life directly.  That’s what she loves about the law and immigration as well as what challenges her about it. She is delighted when her clients can stay in Canada aided by her efforts. “It’s very rewarding, helping a family gain the life in Canada that my family was able to get,” she says. Sodaba relishes each one as an opportunity to grow and to wrestle with the law, to see it in a different perspective until the desired end result is achieved. Not unlike her time spent at the refugee camps.

Choosing Wolf Law Chambers

Through LinkedIn, Sodaba found Wolf Law Chambers and the CPD they were hosting: “Surviving Your First Audit.” After the seminar, Sodaba joined a group getting a tour of the offices at Wolf Law Chambers, and had a chat with Dezso Farkas, the Director. “I really got his vision as to what he’s doing and I really appreciate what he’s trying do for the legal community,” she said. When the principal lawyer at the criminal law firm Sodaba worked at was called to the bench, Sodaba decided to branch out and start her own practice. She knew that Wolf Law Chambers would be a place she could flourish because there would be other people around that were business-minded as well as legally focused.  Wolf Law Chambers was a perfect match because there was a built-in community, a place where she could foster relationships and collaborate with other legal professionals, receiving advice and help as well as giving her own expertise in return.

She’s especially grateful for the different services that Wolf Law Chambers offers. On her own, she had to oversee every aspect of her business. Now, she really appreciates that she can trust someone else to arrange for her packages to be sent out giving her more time to focus on her clients.  “What I appreciate about Wolf Law Chambers, I don’t have to worry about the administrative side. They cake care of the major aspects,” she says.

The cornerstone of Sodaba’s life is the relationships she develops and cultivates with the people around her. They excite her, motivate her and drive her to make a difference in their lives. She’s very passionate about all her clients getting the justice they deserve. She wants to make sure that regardless of right or wrong, regardless of how many times they’ve tried, they are represented. By taking care of her client’s legal needs and advocating for their rights through what can be a complicated process, she hopes to lessen the burden and enable her clients to focus on building a life here in Canada.

If you are facing difficulties with your immigration application, give Sodaba Rameh a call. She is here to take care of your legal needs so that you can live your life.

5 Reasons to Rent a Meeting Room

If you’re a solo practitioner, lawyer, or running a small firm, then you understand the inconveniences of having small spaces. When you are in a small office space, it’s difficult to figure out how you’ll host in-person meetings with clients. Meeting rooms tend to take up lots of space, and they rarely get used. This is why lawyers and solo practitioners are renting professional spaces to host their meetings. We’re going to discuss how you can rent a meeting room to save your business money.

Renting a Meeting Room is a Cost-Effective Solution

When you rent a meeting room, you’re saving money.

When you’re running a small firm, it can be daunting to have a client visit your business. Especially if you’re managing day-to-day operations from home.

Presentation Skills for Lawyers – Webinar Event

We would like to give a huge thank you to Max Beaumont from Potato Chip Communications for adjusting his presentation “Presentation Skills for Lawyers” to fit an online medium. Although we were not able to participate in some of the interactive exercises that were originally planned before COVID-19 arrived and online meetings became the norm, Max still made the session fun, interactive and memorable. 

Everyone has experienced the nervousness that comes with giving public presentations, perhaps reminding us of that first middle school presentation that felt like a flop! Max understands this nervousness and outlines six major things to focus on to improve our presentation skills: mindset, body language, audience interaction, conversational delivery, and simple messages.

The biggest takeaway was mindset and audience interaction. 

Max Beaumont from Potato Chip Communications

Our natural bent when explaining our presentation before our peers or others is to focus on ourselves: not messing up, slowing down our speech, getting sales, how we’re coming across.  Bottom line?  We’re thinking about ‘me’.  Max challenged us to change our mindset, shifting it from the mechanics we’re engaging in to get our message across, to instead think about our audience, to listen to ourselves as if we were sitting in their shoes.  In addition, he let us in on the ‘secret sauce,’ the key ingredient to channeling our nervousness into a presentation that achieves a conversational style and engages our audience in an accessible way. By the end, we all left the meeting with something to think about.

This is one of the benefits of being a member of Wolf Law Chambers, that from time to time we come together as a community of professionals to participate in ongoing educational seminars that are also open to friends of Wolf Law Chambers.  And of course, the credits gained by attending count towards a legal practitioners’ annual requirement for continuing education. 

We invite you to join us for our next seminar. Who knows? Maybe Max will be back. 

What are your rights and obligations during the declared emergency?

Here’s a primer on the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act.

This past long weekend you may have observed more police and provincial offences act officers out and about at public parks and in the community.

Police and provincial offences officers are now responsible for responding to calls related to the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act  (the “Act”) invoked by the Province of Ontario and as well as ensuring the public’s general compliance with it.

An emergency was declared by an Order in Council (Ontario Regulation 50/20) on March 17th, 2020 pursuant to section 7.0.1 of the Act. It was recognized that the outbreak of a communicable disease, namely COVID-19, constituted a “danger of major proportions that could result in serious harm to persons.”

The initial period of the declared emergency was for fourteen days. It was extended a further fourteen days until April 13, 2020. On the recommendation of the Premier, the Assembly may by resolution extend the period of an emergency for additional periods of no more than twenty-eight days.

There have been a number of orders made under the Act which cover things like price gouging on hand sanitizer or the pick up and delivery of cannabis (if you are a holder of an authorization) during the declared emergency.

The emergency declaration has also called for a number of measures including:

  • Closure of establishments (for example, all bars and restaurants, except to the extent such facilities provide takeout food and delivery) O. Reg 51/20
  • The mandatory closure of non-essential workplaces (O. Reg. 82/20)
  • Closure of outdoor recreational amenities (which includes outdoor playgrounds and outdoor sports facilities) O.Reg.104/20
  • Strict restrictions on the size of organized public events, social gatherings, and conducting religious services, rites and ceremonies, being limited to 5 persons (except for members of single household), funeral services (not more than 10 people) O.Reg. 52/20

There are penalties in place for breaching the orders. Keep in mind that there are also provisions for the enforcement of these orders.

For example, officers may require an individual to provide their correct name, date of birth and address if they believe that a person has committed an offence (O. Reg. 114/20).

Failing to comply with any of the emergency orders is an offence under the Act but so is the failure to identify oneself accurately. 

For example, failing to correctly identify one self carries a fine of $750 for failure to comply with an order made under the Act or $1,000 for obstructing any person in exercising a power if a provincial offences officer issues a ticket. 

This is a significant departure from the law prior to the declared emergency. In my criminal practice I am often asked by my clients whether they are required to identify themselves to police upon request. My standard answer to that question was, “well that depends.”

If police stop you while you are driving or cycling you DO have to show the police identification. (This is required by the Highway Traffic Act and municipal bylaws.) But in many cases, if the police simply stop you on the street I tell my clients that you don’t have to show the police your identification or answer their questions.

An important caveat is that during the declared emergency – the scope of police powers are now significantly broader. If police or provincial offences officers have grounds to believe that you are breaching the Act, you should hand over your identification.

Finally, there is one last question I wish to address. Are the police stopping cars with two or more occupants and issuing tickets under the Act?

There have been rumours swirling on social media recently that police forces in the GTA are issuing tickets under the Act when there are two ore more people in a car if they do not live at the same address.

In fact, this rumour became so pervasive that Peel, Durham and York Regional Police have taken to social media to confirm that officers have NOT been directed to ticket vehicle occupants when there are two or more people in a car. Peel Police, however, DID recommend limited the number of people in any car to family, to limit the spread of the virus.

Be well and stay safe.

Finding the Right Client for Your Practice

On February 19, Wolf Law Chambers welcomed Kim Piller from Sandler Training to give a talk on how lawyers and paralegals can increase their sales effectiveness.

Thanks to everyone who came!

Dezso Farkas, the Director of Wolf Law Chambers, started the evening with a summary as to why lawyers and paralegals don’t like to sell. When it comes down to it, there’s a negative connotation associated with sales. There’s also a general feeling that sales are not what the legal practitioner is trained to do. Law is what they trained to do. But as sole practitioners or small firms, the reality is that finding clients, promoting your practice is something you have to do.

In his presentation, Kim Piller spoke about why some sales fail: “winging” the sales pitch, lack of a plan, not really knowing what you’re selling, no process in place, and sometimes a sheer lack of compatibility. But all of that can be overcome. He provided tips and techniques to help make connections and land new clients. 

He advocated for putting a system in place to help you sell. With a system, you’ll know what beats to hit in your sales pitch and this will help you maintain control, save time, stay on track, duplicate positive results and recognize any problems.

The goal is to get a positive result: a yes, a no, or a referral. Although getting a “no” may be counterintuitive as a positive result, it can lead to a lesson learned or simply saved time. Maybe’s are the negative result; causing you to bleed time and resources. 

In the end, he reminded everyone, the thing to remember is people decide to purchase or choose you as their legal practitioner based on emotions. They will justify it later intellectually, but the emotions they feel are the deciding factor. 

  • Look at their personal needs.
  • Be a good listener.
  • Understand why they are coming to you.

Toronto Wolf Law Chambers coming soon

Dezso Farkas, a lawyer and the Director of Wolf Law Chambers, made his vision of a shared workspace for legal practitioners into reality in 2019. Wolf Law Chambers opened two locations, one in Mississauga in April and another in Oakville in December. It is designed to be a place to foster community and collaborations across all legal disciplines while still allowing the members to be autonomous.

Dezso recognized that solo practitioners face a lot of challenges in the day to day running of their practices and he wanted to help. Wolf Law Chambers has a marketing team to help with branding and advertising, sponsors networking events as well as CPD credit events and on the whole tries to anticipate its members’ needs.

To better serve the legal community, a new location is opening in Toronto in 2020. In addition to the courier and reception services that are already available, Wolf Law Chambers will be starting copying and binding services, and will have the option of  the presence of a qualified legal practitioner available to sign documents with a client at one of the locations, all with the aim of saving our members’ time and making their lives easier.

Wolf Law Chambers is all about providing a place for legal practitioners to collaborate and be part of a community while still maintaining their solo identity and brand. If this sounds like something you’d like to be a part of, come on in. The doors are open.

No Detail Is Too Small: Thamar Abdu

Thamar Abdu of Thamar Bilingual Legal Services Ontario provides legal services in both French and English. After becoming a licensed paralegal in April 2018, Thamar started her practice in May 2018. She focuses on Small Claims Court matters and commercial litigation, such as a contract dispute between two businesses or between a business and an individual, as well as Landlord and Tenant issues. Her true love, though, is anything to do with contracts: going through the terms, finding the defects, examining the details. 


Up until three years ago, Thamar lived and worked in Quebec. She spent many years working in the financial industry before working for the government of Quebec. Both of these jobs played a role in where she has ended up today. 

Her first encounter with the law as an employment opportunity was when she was asked to fill in for a colleague in the legal department of her employer’s company. To her delight, during her training she discovered an aptitude for law, understanding the concepts and aspects quite easily. As she did not have a legal education at the time, it remained a delightful discovery about herself, nothing more.

A few years later, Thamar was working for the Quebec government in a job that required her to know governmental procedure quite well and be very familiar with the law that intersected with her work. When her uncle visited from Ontario, she accompanied him to court on a minor matter, both for moral support and because she was familiar with the structure of a governmental/legal organization. Her uncle, seeing how much she enjoyed the visit to the Quebec courthouse, told her that in Ontario she could go back to school and become a licensed paralegal and provide legal services to the public.

At this point, a yearning for a new challenge had been quietly residing in the back of her mind for some time, specifically a chance to start her own business. But Thamar is not a person who works with her hands and so was not sure what her business would focus on. With no focus or outlet, the desire for her own business remained an idea.  When her uncle told her about the paralegal educational opportunity, her dream came into laser sharp focus. Within a month she had resigned from her job in Quebec and enrolled in a paralegal education program in Ontario. Although it was scary and daunting to leave behind an established life as well as a secure and well-paying job, Thamar was also excited to be setting out on a new challenge, a challenge that she relished. She’s never looked back.

Puzzle Pieces

Thamar loves examining details, investigating terms, searching for information and uncovering facts. Every case is made up of thousands of tiny pieces and she enjoys putting them together to see the big picture. In another life, she might have been an investigator. As a paralegal, her passion for facts and details help her to understand each case fully. She examines every facet of a case thoroughly, looking for anything that might help or hinder her client. Although this level of detail might be daunting to some, Thamar thrives on it. She uses her drive to understand everything to her advantage, to enable her to grasp the situation a client might be facing and examine and present each possible outcome. She never underestimates the value of one detail. Although this passion for detail may cause frustration, it can also have the benefit of finding that one piece of the puzzle that changes the perspective of an entire case.

Although she is still building experience and her practice is young, she doesn’t let her newness stop or intimidate her. She throws her heart and soul into preparing for every case.  All doubts and inexperience can be overcome with preparation and knowledge, she says. When asked how this translates to helping her clients, Thamar says that she is very thorough and outlines all possible outcomes that may arise. Her goal, she says, is not winning per se, but getting the best possible outcome in the circumstances for her client – be that money, an order from the judge or something else entirely.

Wolf Law Chambers

Choosing Wolf Law Chambers as the home for her practice is another decision Thamar has no regrets over. When she first started as a licensed paralegal, she worked out of a home office for a year but found it to be lonely work. She realized she needed to have other professionals around to talk about work, get opinions, brainstorm, get advice or even just to have a quick chat about coffee. Wolf Law Chambers provided this as it is a community of legal professionals. “It feels like a family,” she says. She found that her productivity soared when she was around other professionals and as an added boost, Wolf Law Chambers is more convenient for her practice. There’s a professional space readily available to meet clients, the boardroom, and if a client has problems in other areas of law, there are other legal professionals just outside her door who could help.

One of the benefits from starting her own business that Thamar enjoys is the freedom she’s gained to structure her day. As an early riser, Thamar long ago discovered her most productive hours were early in the morning. Once, those hours were needed to prep to get to the office for 9. Now that she runs her own practice, she can use those hours more effectively and efficiently because she can work from anywhere.

Although starting her own business has been challenging, Thamar focuses on the positive. She took the leap of faith to open her own business and pursue her love of law and details and contracts; what someone else may find tedious, Thamar finds fascinating.

Thamar and her eye for detail is ready to help you with your contract issues.

Determination and Perseverance Always: Gideon McMaster

Gideon McMaster of McMaster Law practices in the areas of criminal defense, civil litigation and commercial law. He was admitted to the bar in Trinidad and Tobago in 2012 and upon moving to Canada in 2017, started the accreditation process to be a licensed legal professional. Gideon has now been a Foreign Legal Consultant in Ontario since May 2017. He currently maintains his practice in Trinidad & Tobago, separate from his practice here in Ontario, which is new and growing quickly. 

Gideon is grateful for the experience he gained in Trinidad and Tobago that shaped him into the lawyer he is today and where he has been involved in numerous high-profile cases. He values being licensed to practice both there and in Ontario and believes that both jurisdictions continue to develop him as a lawyer in their own unique ways. Gideon is inspired by top litigators who win difficult cases, especially those in which it seemed all hope had been lost. 

The Choice to Become a Lawyer

Gideon’s choice to become a lawyer gradually formed from several factors. Since childhood Gideon has been outspoken, independently minded and passionate about the things in which he believes. Gideon’s interest in law as a career path developed through his association with persons involved in law and politics during his adolescence, including close friends of his family. His home is well known by relatives as a battleground for political debates. Gideon viewed the legal profession as a viable avenue through which he could generate positive changes in his environment. On the business side of things, he saw his parents build a very successful business from the ground up. Watching them, Gideon recognized that all success and failure would come through his own grit and determination. He understood that these qualities would also bring fulfillment in his life’s work.


Gideon sees his philosophy of life as consistently working towards being an agent of positive change in any environment he is in. He believes that determination, grit and a burning desire to succeed even when the odds are against you are the hallmarks of most successful individuals irrespective of profession. That’s the kind of lawyer Gideon desires to be.

The Mark of a Good Lawyer

Litigating is a superb career choice for people who like to argue, and Gideon thrives on arguing! While this might lead to difficulty in other professions, it is an excellent asset for litigators. It is the job of the litigator to argue for his client’s rights and it is one of Gideon’s goals to become a top litigator in the province. Litigating is not about winning – even though a love of arguing implies a love of winning. While Gideon loves competition, it is simply not the most important thing to him. He commented that winning is simply expected of lawyers, a by-product of their true purpose to fulfill their civic duty. 

He freely admits that while winning has its benefits, he feels that making litigation about winning is not a true test of a lawyer’s skill or aptitude since there are many factors that may skew the results and make them look positive: choosing only “winnable” cases, getting a sympathetic judge, or having at one’s disposal considerably more favourable evidence. Because of these factors, Gideon believes that what makes a good lawyer is skill, not necessarily the lawyer’s record of wins. 

To him, being a top litigator is more about honing his skill and doing the job with excellence and perseverance. It is about helping the people who come to him with the very best of his ability – this is Gideon’s passion.

Gideon describes a good lawyer as a person who:

  • Understands the importance of the client and their obligation to them,
  • Understands that in many instances people come to lawyers at the worst points in their lives, and,
  • Shows compassion to those seeking out their services. Of course, every lawyer needs to have paying clients in order to make a living but Gideon believes there are times that a lawyer may need to take on a case pro bono, and he has personally found much fulfillment in doing so. 

He has been fortunate to have won the vast majority of his cases, but he refuses to put a number to his win ratio. He attributes it to good trials and good luck together. Instead Gideon prefers to focus on his passion to help people who are in need of a skilled litigator.

Choosing Wolf Law Chambers

Gideon is excited to be a part of Wolf Law Chambers and the benefits it brings to his practice.  Since he doesn’t need to worry about administrative details such as internet, phone bills or going to the post office – it’s all taken care of in-house – this allows much more time to be focused on his case load. Gideon chose Wolf Law Chambers because of its structural similarity to the law chambers model which exists in Britain and the Caribbean, where he was trained. He also practices in a law chambers in Trinidad & Tobago. Gideon is attracted to the idea of lawyers working in close proximity to one another as it fosters an environment in which lawyers can bounce ideas off one other, work collaboratively, have an intellectual exchange, and have the opportunity to learn and help one another.

Gideon is a very determined, goal-oriented lawyer. His belief that there is always room for growth inspires him to continue striving for excellence as he builds up his practice in Ontario and continues to hone his advocacy skills. His love of arguing and his sincere desire to help his client get everything they deserve make him a valuable addition to Wolf Law Chambers. Gideon never gives up… just like his favourite soccer team.

Gideon is an avid supporter of Manchester United. Attending Law School in Manchester, UK, gave Gideon plenty of time to observe the team’s story and philosophy of sheer determination and doggedness; to see them as a team that never says ‘die’ and fights to the bitter end. He believes that this is consistent with his own outlook and philosophy of life. Gideon is also an amateur soccer player and plays in the Burlington Soccer League with Squire FC.

If you have any legal matters pertaining to criminal defense, civil litigation or commercial law, feel free to contact Gideon for a consultation.
