Safia graduated from the University of Guelph with an Honours Bachelor of Arts (BA.H) in Criminal Justice and Public Policy, minor in French. She attended law school in Melbourne, Australia, where she obtained her Juris Doctor (J.D.) at Monash University. Thereafter, she returned to Canada and was called to the Ontario Bar.

During her time in law school, Safia volunteered with several Community Legal Clinics and in Prisons, providing low-income and marginalized groups among various socio-economic backgrounds, with access to justice through legal education and guidance, as they navigated through some of their most challenging circumstances. After law school, Safia worked at the busiest court in Canada, in both the Ontario and Superior Courts of Justice, as a Court and Client Representative for the Ministry of Attorney General. There, she gained countless hours of invaluable court experience at various stages of family litigation.

Before joining Horra Family Law, Safia articled at a reputable full service law firm in Toronto, where she went on to practice as an associate lawyer with a focus in family law including all areas, such as high-conflict parenting disputes, support issues, and property division. During her time there, she was a zealous advocate for clients in court and successfully negotiated settlement in a wide range of family law matters. Safia aspires to make navigating the family law process with her clients as smooth and straightforward as possible, understanding that the law can be complex and at times, uncertain. Safia’s goal is to help her clients achieve effective results by providing them with insight on the law, maintaining transparent communication, and giving her clients a platform for their needs to be heard and understood, on the premise that every family is unique.

In her spare time, Safia enjoys being in the company of family and friends, trying new restaurants, reading, playing volleyball, and practicing in muay thai kickboxing. Safia is fluent in English and Tagalog and is conversant in French.
