Before practicing law, Affan worked with many non-profit organizations that were committed to social justice. During these experiences, Affan developed a strong passion for fighting against injustice and helping marginalized individuals in their times of need. As a settler on this land and a child of immigrants, Affan’s overarching goals are to practice law through a social justice lens, pursue justice and be an ally for his clients in and out of the courtroom.
