Meet the Founder of Mayfair Law Group
My name is Yianniko Kozoronis and I am the owner of Mayfair Law Group, your personal injury lawyer in Toronto. My journey into this business began back when I was in Law School and I continued with personal injury law from a clerking side in 2010, until being called to the bar in 2014.
When I saw how insurance companies were taking advantage of individuals who did not have the money or know how to respond to their requests properly, I knew I could use my skills better. I started my own practice in January of 2018 because I wanted to be able to have control over the type of work I take on and to choose my own clients. Before this, I had been working in larger firms but felt they all lacked a personal aspect which is required to truly be successful in this field. Unfortunately, these days it has become more difficult to get clients the monetary settlement they deserve because the legislature has made so many changes in the past 12 years, in favour of the insurance companies.
My business philosophy is to treat everyone the way you would like to be treated and there is no shame in agreeing to disagree – there is always a next step, don’t be afraid to take it. I also believe in respect, compassion, and honesty. These are the values I run my business by.
The most enjoyable part of my job is the gratitude clients show when I can help them. Being appreciated, assures me that I have done my best for them. The most rewarding part of having my own business is that things always feel new. There are always new challenges and interesting cases for me to take on. It keeps me very motivated. Most of my success has been my ability to connect with people on a level that shows them I care about the situation they are in and respect that they have come to me for help.
My most satisfying moment in this industry was believing in myself enough to get through my first two years, as they were very difficult from a financial perspective. I also like to wind down and during my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. Playing and watching sports always brings me great joy.
Thanks for taking the time to read my story. If you have had a personal injury or have a question about personal injury law, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
