After working for many years in sales and leadership, Jami started his education and career in criminal law when he enrolled in 2016 in the Sir Sandford Fleming College Computer Security and Investigation program. Amid the technical courses, he found he enjoyed most the legal courses, such as Evidentiary Procedure and Cybercrime, and courses heavy in creative writing such as Managing Technical Projects and Reporting Cyber Trends. After completing four semesters, he switched to the paralegal program and hit the ground running, eventually graduating from the program with honours.
Jami joined the firm in October 2018 as a paralegal placement student. His initial duties were creative writing for the marketing department, drafting correspondence to the Ministry of the Attorney General, analysis of transcripts and case studies, and appearances for adjournments and designations of counsel in the Ontario Court of Justice, criminal and provincial offences. At the completion of his placement, Jami joined the firm as a part-time contract employee, and then a full-time employee upon his graduation. He then obtained his paralegal licence from the Law Society of Ontario and is now the resident paralegal at Aitken Robertson’s Lindsay office. He handles the majority of the firm’s POA matters in all courts from Old City Hall in Toronto to Kingston and beyond, fighting for good results for Aitken Robertson’s valued clients. Jami also helps with many the the firm’s marketing aspects and research.
Jami is a basketball “lifer,” and enjoys playing, coaching and watching the game very much. You’ll often find him playing at any of Peterborough’s outdoor courts with his son and friends.
