Determination, a Distinctive Characteristic of Salvatore Grillo’s Life and Practice
He went on to graduate from Osgoode Hall Law School in 1982 and was later called to the Ontario bar in 1984. Since then, he has been helping his clients get the medical care and financial support they deserve. He has also been assisting clients with a broad range of claims, including those related to elder abuse, slips and falls, motor vehicle accidents, and many more.
His inspiration to study law came when he saw that Italian-Canadians were not so well represented at the bar. Grillo, who started as a criminal lawyer, thought that it would be more fulfilling to help the community with respect to legal issues. His main focus now is exclusively on personal injury law, corporate commercial work, and criminal defense.
The personal injury lawyer, who has appeared before appellate and superior courts in Ontario, as well as the Financial Services Commission of Ontario, ensures that his clients have the appropriate documentation, and are dealing with their injuries properly.
Grillo launched his law firm in 1985 after briefly partnering with some of his law-school classmates. The Toronto personal injury lawyer has a diverse and dedicated team of more than 90 professionals. His firm’s client base goes well beyond Toronto’s thriving Italian community and offers services in more than a dozen languages.
Grillo maintains membership with the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association, Advocates’ Society, Law Society of Ontario, and Canadian Bar Association.
When he is not dealing with legal matters, he contributes to cultural associations and organizations, including the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and L’Altra Italia, as well as the local youth sports clubs across the city.
