Anna Szczurko (pronounced ‘Stir-Co’) is a civil litigator who focuses on insurance litigation and personal injury law. I help individuals made vulnerable through accidents and other acts of negligence. My law practice has included motor vehicle collisions, slip and falls, boating collisions, home made cannons and people getting in hurt in ways sometimes hard to fathom.

I also handle long term disability claims, including the integration of work benefits, CPP disability and tort claims. I understand the integration between statutory accident benefits and tort, ensuring that my clients maximize their recovery, leverage their results and are made as whole as our legal system permits. This includes putting in place the best treatment team available to maximize results.

A relationship with a lawyer is no different than any other relationship – integrity and respect are the cornerstones, communication and access to expertise build trust. That's how Anna works effectively with you and your treatment providers.

Client Testimonials

Very thorough, diligent and supportive
Really great experience through a very difficult situation. Anna [Szczurko] and her team were amazing. Very thorough, diligent and supportive every step of the way. Thank you all so very much. - S.D.

Strength, kindness and compassion
Thank you Anna and staff. Yesterday was exhausting as you said but it was also interesting to watch the whole process. It was also refreshing to see such strength, kindness and compassion on your part in what looks to be a very harsh, ruthless environment. Thank you for your perseverance throughout the day to reach the best deal for M. that you could under the circumstances. It is a relief to know that this part of the process is over and that he now has a much better chance of securing a peaceful life. - J.

You are a credit to the Siskinds Law Firm
I would like to personally thank you for your professional services in achieving a very suitable resolution to our litigation. You were very diligent, professional and respectful throughout these proceedings. Your direction during this process has been much appreciated and I don't know if we would be here discussing this if not for your determination to get what I see as a fair and equitable solution. In my opinion you are a credit to the Siskinds Law Firm. Please extend to all your staff who were involved my heartfelt appreciation for all that they also contributed to this final result. - B & M

Positive Energy
I just wanted to thank you so much for all your help and compassion over the last five years. Being in the car accident in 2015 and trying to get my life, and my families lives, back on track has been a difficult time. I am very happy we had you on our side to help out with all the paperwork and doctors, and keeping everything in order. Also, the help with the tribunals. It was your positive energy and keeping me calm that helped through the stressful times. Keep up doing everything you do to help your clients. The sweet and sincere way you approach every problem or set back helps get us as a client to look in the same direction and find the beautiful lights at the end of a long dark tunnel. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts. -K.H.

Excellent Lawyer
Dear Anna, you are an excellent lawyer and legal counsel. Thank you so much for all you have done. Regards and many, many thanks to Courtenay as well. - J.H.

You Are a Very Good Lawyer and I Would Recommend You to Anyone...
Anna; I want to let you know that I am very grateful for what you have been able to accomplish on my behalf in this case. I think it was somewhat of an uphill battle but we came out pretty well and I am quite satisfied with the outcome. As was said by our opponent, you are a very good lawyer and I would recommend you to anyone that was ever in a similar situation to me... Anyway, thank you so much Anna. I will send a letter to my MPP regarding this ridiculous insurance deductible as well. - P.T.

Not Enough Words to Express My Sincere Thanks...
There are not enough words to express my sincere thanks and gratitude for what you did on my behalf. I don't know what to say except thank-you for settling this claim without having me go through discovery or court. Anna, I haven't stopped crying for over an hour. The emotional release is amazing to say the least. Once again thank-you for everything. - C.S.

Cannot Thank You Enough
I cannot thank you enough for all you’ve done for me over the past 4 to 5 years. I always think how lucky I am to have found you. One never thinks about legal representation until we are vulnerable and hurting. I know it’s just a coincidence that “Siskinds” has “kind” in the name, but after working with you all, that’s what always comes to mind.
Without your guidance and support I felt suddenly alone and scared. But, knowing you and Jim and Courtenay, I feel like you are still there whenever I need you. Thank you for all you’ve done for me as well as for your clients. - C.L.

Caring You Showed From the Start...
I wanted to let you know that I appreciate the work that you have done for me, as well as the caring you showed, from the start. Having you and Courtenay, and Jim (Mays) looking after my legal was nice. And, with hopes of never needing a lawyer for any major issues, I would hire you (and Siskinds) again. -M.N.

Without Your Support...
We realize just how much work and consideration you put into J's case. Without your support, J would not have been able to get through the past four years. - J.B.

My Hero
Anna Szczurko is an attorney with heart, she is a fair knowledgeable attorney with a human touch. Anna was sympathetic and heard me, listened to me and kept me informed. Anna always took the time to answer my email questions and returned my calls. Anna believed in me, fought for me, when I was unable to. Anna was and will continue to be “My Hero” who gave me an opportunity to live the life I was meant to live, before my accident. If life ever deals me another blow, I know where to go, and who to call, Anna Szczurko a lawyer with a Human touch. Bless you Anna and thank you from the bottom of my heart. You were there when I was in need and I will never forget YOU! Many Blessings. - Lorraine

Positive Experience in a Difficult Time
Anna provided me with a positive experience during a difficult time. She was always willing to speak with me and answer my questions and take her time with me. I would recommend her to anyone who has been in an accident and needs assistance because she is super sweet and you need someone who cares but at the same time she will go to bat for you so you get the assistance you need. - Jen

Making the Process "Less Scary"
Thank you again for everything you have done for me, I really appreciate it. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with you and getting to know you over the last couple years. You have made this whole process much less scary for me. - J.P.
