Gurbhajneek Samra

Gurbhajneek Singh Samra is excited to join Ackah Law as an Associate Lawyer.

Gurbhajneek came to Canada as an Immigrant and understands the challenges and opportunities people face when making Canada their home. His core values are to help people which has motivated him to pursue Immigration Law as his primary area of practice.

He completed B.A.LL.B. (Hons) in 2011 from Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law, Punjab, India with a specialization in Intellectual Property Law & Financial Markets.

Gurbhajneek is an internationally trained lawyer and possesses extensive knowledge and experience in litigation from India. He primarily practiced in Criminal Law, Employment Law and Family Law.

Gurbhajneek passed his National Committee on Accreditation (NCA) exams in November 2017 with the Federation of Law Societies of Canada. He moved to Canada at the beginning of 2018 as a Permanent Resident and passed his licensing exams in June 2019 from the Law Society of Ontario. He is a member in good standing with the Law Society of Ontario, Canada.

He worked as an Immigration, Corporate and Real Estate Lawyer in Brampton, Ontario. He always had a keen interest in litigation and moved to Windsor to pursue litigation in Family Law and Estate Litigation.

Gurbhajneek's application to transfer his license has been approved by the Law Society of Alberta and he is waiting for the call to the Bar ceremony. Currently, he has a Permit to Practice in Alberta from the Law Society of Alberta.

Gurbhajneek is fluent in English, Punjabi, Hindi and Urdu languages.

Gurbhajneek is very interested in sports and outdoor activities.

It is hard enough in the normal course of business to obtain permanent resident status in Canada. Imagine the difficulty in gaining that status with a 36 year old developmentally disabled daughter. That was our experience. My husband had been recruited for the C.E.O. position at the Calgary Public Library. Even the process to obtain temporary work permits for all three of our family members took some time and effort. The Ackah Firm was with us every step of the way. They gave us good advice, managed the paperwork and kept my husband’s employer informed. They were also proactive by insisting that we get on with the process of permanent residency in a timely fashion. Again their experience and knowledge paid off. They utilized other legal expertise to make a case that our daughter would not be a burden to the Country or the Province. They were respectful of our point of view that despite her disabilities she had always been an active and engaged member of the community. We were pleased that permanent residence for parents and child came through fully six months before the temporary status expired.
