MEET OUR TEAM

Feifel Gualazzi has grown into one of the largest personal injury law firms in Northern Ontario, with a dedicated staff of 30. Today, our partners focus solely on personal injury, including auto accidents, no-fault accident benefits, and all other types of personal injuries. 


Feifel Gualazzi is an assertive team that will work tirelessly for you, not for the insurance companies. Our focus is on early resolution and settlement; however, if the insurance company is being unreasonable, our trial lawyers will proceed to trial. Our trial lawyers have extensive trial experience and have each been instrumental in winning landmark precedent-setting decisions advancing the rights of accident victims.

BRIAN A. GUALAZZI

Brian Gualazzi, B. Comm, LL.B., graduated from Dalhousie University with a Bachelor of Commerce in 1983 before attending Dalhousie Law School, where he graduated in 1988. After articling at the law firm of Caputo, Sarlo, Irwin, he was called to the bar in 1990. Brian was hired by the Ministry of the Attorney General, where he worked as an Assistant Crown Attorney for 16 years from 1990 until 2006 when he joined the firm. He has appeared at all levels of Court in Ontario, where he tried hundreds of cases including very complex jury trials.


Prior to embarking on his legal career, Brian enjoyed a very successful hockey career as he starred with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the Ontario League. While playing for the Soo Greyhounds, Brian had many accomplishments, one of which was leading the OHL in scoring with 75 goals in the 1978/1979 season. He went on to play with the Dalhousie Tigers of the Canadian University Athletic Association, where he was selected to the All-Canadian Team on two occasions. Brian was selected in the National Hockey League draft in 1979 by the Minnesota North Stars and played professionally in Salt Lake City, Utah before returning to law school. Although he had many achievements in hockey, he continues to be remembered for being the person responsible for Wayne Gretzky wearing the famous number "99." Brian was already wearing number "9" when Wayne arrived in the Soo; therefore, he was forced to wear a new number, and number "99" was created.


He is currently a member of the Algoma District Law Association, The Advocates' Society of Ontario, and the Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce.
