Client Testimonials

Thank you so much for all your help!
You, Jenny and your team at Siskinds have been kind, compassionate and understanding but most of all professional. I just wanted you to know how grateful I am to have had you in my corner. Thank you so much!” K.L.

Brilliant Strategic Thinking & Outstanding Work Ethic 
I am sincerely grateful to Leanne Kuchynski for representing my wife and I in what we considered to be an unprecedented situation. Leanne's compassion, practical advice, openness to feedback, brilliant strategic thinking and outstanding work ethic led to the most optimal outcome while maintaining a superior human experience. Despite the harsh realities of the situation, I felt extremely comfortable that our best interest was Leanne's utmost priority and was confident in her demonstrated ability. She was professional and exceptionally thorough, yet remained remarkably caring.
I used to have a somewhat cautious disposition towards lawyers based on past experiences; however, Leanne completely restored my faith in the profession and earned my unquestionable loyalty for all future legal needs. - S.M.
