Joe Antifaev - Slater Vecchio

Joe Antifaev

Joe Antifaev represents people injured in car, cycling, and pedestrian collisions, occupiers’ liability incidents, animal attacks, assaults, and sports injuries.

He joined Slater Vecchio in 2017, after working as an associate lawyer at a leading insurance defence firm. His experience as a defence lawyer gives Joe a valuable understanding of how insurance companies approach claims.

Joe is passionate about advocating on behalf of clients in the courtroom, and has appeared before the British Columbia Supreme and Provincial Courts, as well as before administrative tribunals. He is equally as excited to represent his clients at mediation and outside of court.

Joe grew up in Coquitlam and now lives in downtown Vancouver. Outside of the law, Joe spends his time woodworking, running, and working with ceramics.
