A founding partner of Abramovich & Tchern and a skilled litigator, Lev focuses exclusively on immigration and refugee law. His practice is focused on immigration litigation, personal immigration, and refugee law matters.
Lev has successfully represented clients at all levels of Ontario Courts. He routinely appears before the Federal Court and divisions of the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada with respect to judicial reviews, appeals, inadmissibility-related issues, and other immigration cases.
Lev knows nobody wants to go to court. He takes pride in being able to see the big picture and anticipate issues before they arise. His goal is to achieve his immigration clients’ goals without litigation. But, when issues become contentious, he’s the immigration advocate you need.
This litigation lens means that when Lev assists businesses and individuals with their routine immigration needs, he crafts persuasive cases that anticipate challenges and take into account how adjudicators and immigration decision-makers think.
When he’s not helping his clients solve their immigration problems, Lev serves as a director for a Canadian-based technology recruitment firm, helping Canadian employers hire top international technology talent.
Lev obtained his LL.B at the University of Windsor, after obtaining a Bachelor of Philosophy from the University of Windsor. During law school, Lev volunteered at the Freedom House of Detroit, helping with Canadian and US refugee claims. In addition to English, Lev is also fluent in Russian.
