Lucien M. Conn
I got my will done during the Covid-19 pandemic. The whole process was seamless and easier than I thought. We signed everything during a video call and the law firm arranged all the courier services for their witnessing. Progressive service for sure
Arnold G. Cox
Great service, great result. My lawyer was able to get my former employer to pay me additional compensation that I didn’t even know was possible. I’m glad I retained their services otherwise I was leaving money on the table.

My human rights were violated at work and the firm took my employer to the tribunal where I won. Very happy with the outcome. I was explained the process every step of the way to ease my fears about court. Highly recommended.
Highly recommended family law firm which advocated fiercely for my rights in Court. My ex did their best to make the proceedings difficult but my lawyers were able to get him to pay legal costs.
