Saro J. Turner

It’s a competitive spirit that makes Saro Turner a top performer.

Saro joined Slater Vecchio in 2009. He represents clients who have sustained traumatic brain injuries (TBI), orthopaedic injuries, muscular or soft tissue injuries, and psychological injuries. Saro’s practice is focused on representing plaintiffs in the various levels of court in British Columbia.

Saro appreciates the human-to-human connection that is unique to personal injury. He brings empathy to every client meeting in order to better understand the situation at an emotional and intellectual level.

He is actively involved in the firm’s class action practice that advances consumer rights against large corporate defendants in a variety of fields of law like consumer protection legislation, product liability, competition law, and privacy law.

A love of global politics landed Saro at Carleton University where he earned a master’s degree in International Affairs, followed by a law degree, with honours, from the University of Ottawa.

Saro received academic all-Canadian honours while playing on UBC’s varsity rugby team during his undergraduate studies. Now a referee for BC Rugby and a father of two young boys, Saro spends his weekends keeping the peace both on the field and at home.
