Otherwise, I have no website, Instagram or LinkedIn – I am kind of “old-school” that way – I do not advertise either. All of my clients come in as referrals from other lawyers, judges, health professionals and other clients.
The photos are of me and my wife Sheila Neufeld, my late Dad, Robert Miura, my late Mom, Joycie Miura, as well as me with my two sons Justin Miura (on my left, on the right side of the photo) and Tristan Miura (on my right, on the left side of the photo).
