Teodora’s practice focuses on criminal trials and appeals. She believes everyone in the criminal justice system should be treated with dignity and respect, and enthusiastically takes on cases involving all types of criminal charges.
Teodora completed her Juris Doctor at the University of Toronto, where she was constantly on her feet as an advocate in the moot court program. Teodora also holds Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Criminology from the University of Toronto.
Teodora loves a challenge. Her education in Criminology helps her view justice institutions in a critical light and informs how she approaches legal problems. While in law school, Teodora represented marginalized clients in criminal court on behalf of Downtown Legal Services and assisted with wrongful conviction review applications at Innocence Canada. Teodora understands that power dynamics within the criminal justice system often work against her clients — and she is committed to putting up a fight on their behalf.
Teodora’s experiences working for the judiciary set her apart as an advocate, providing her with unique insight into how judges approach criminal cases. Prior to joining Daniel Brown Law, Teodora served as a law clerk to judges of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, assisting with a number of complex criminal trials. She also worked for the United Nations in the judicial chambers of a criminal tribunal in The Hague, Netherlands.
Beginning in August of 2023, Teodora will take a brief leave from Daniel Brown Law to clerk for the Honourable Justice Sheilah Martin of the Supreme Court of Canada.
