Adam Hummel

Adam Hummel is an Associate Lawyer in the Immigration practice, and Wills & Estates practice groups at Hummingbird Lawyers LLP.

As someone whose family immigrated to Canada from South Africa when he was a young boy, Adam has grown up wearing his immigrant status as a badge of honour. As someone whose family is eternally grateful for the opportunity afforded to them by Canada many years ago, Adam finds that his family’s own experience gives him an added drive to ensure that his clients find success with their own Canadian immigration efforts.

Importantly, whether it is in his immigration practice, his work with the Wills & Estates team, or his work on the Employment team, Adam tries to keep in mind that there is always a personal story behind any legal narrative, that drives his clients forward. Each story is unique and important to understand in order to navigate a particular client’s case, and understand what they would consider a success to a case.

Adam conducts a wide variety of services in Hummingbird’s immigration practice, with a special focus on immigration litigation. He has helped client’s prepare temporary resident visa and permanent applications for immigration to Canada, has obtained confirmations of criminal rehabilitation, permanent residence on humanitarian and compassionate grounds, and has appeared before the Refugee Protection Division, Refugee Appeal Division, Immigration Appeal Division, at Admissibility Hearings, Ministers Delegate Reviews, and judicial reviews proceedings at the Federal Court. He brings his same attention to detail to his clients in his estates and employment litigation matters.

After being admitted to the bar, Adam worked at a number of boutique law firms specializing in civil litigation, eventually growing more interested and experienced in wills and estates law. His career path also took him to a boutique immigration firm, where he cut his teeth working on an immigration litigation team, while also starting up the firm’s civil litigation practice.
