I wanted to take a moment to let Siskinds know how pleased I have been with the professionalism of Dagmara Wozniak. For the past four years she has spear-headed our case against a nursing home for neglectful treatment of our mother. My family has appreciated her high degree of expertise as she guided us through the process, acquired experts to support our case, attended two pre-trials with us and negotiated with the lawyer for the nursing home. Her Legal Assistants were also consummate professionals as they dealt with me. Suing a large organization like a nursing home was extremely stressful for me as I was also dealing with my mother's passing and as executor of her estate, had other obligations to carry out. Dagmara's caring attitude, knowledge and professionalism in navigating our case reassured me that we were in excellent hands. -D.Q.
Emily [Foreman], Jennifer [Grosvold] & Kortney, I want you all to know how truly thankful I am. It has been one of the most trying periods of my life dealing with injuries, divorce and missing out on the things I had previously enjoyed. At times I felt absolutely defeated, but you got me through it and made sure I got the help I needed as well put me in touch with Marie [Tukara] in your office to handle my divorce. Although I still have to live with my pains - having this over brings relief and the closure is a good feeling. I hope no one I know ends up in this situation, but if they do I will be sending them your way. Thank you! - A.S.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for the outstanding work done by Camille Riggs in representing me in Ontario Family Court. Her professionalism and efficiency was exemplary. Although we had never met in person (I am out-of-Province), I was able to very quickly reach a level of complete comfort with her work on my behalf. Not only did she fully understand my position, but also, she was able to articulate it in judicial proceedings, far better than I ever could have done. And I was quite pleased with the outcome. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who needs a trustworthy partner in their corner. - R.G.
In 2011, I approached Siskinds Law Firm to represent me after I was hit by a car while riding my motorcycle. The recovery time was a lengthy 2 1/2 years resulting in a change of occupation because of the severity of my injuries. Throughout my association with Siskinds, I found lawyer Chris Collins and senior accident benefits specialist Charlene Howlett to be empathetic, quick to respond to my many questions, and brilliant in their handling of my case which resulted in a relatively short, out-of-court settlement. They were particularly efficient at dealing with the third party insurance company, resolving most problems by day's end. They also approached the insurance company on behalf of my handicapped son who resides with me ensuring his needs were met as well. I was devastated about a previous case that was handled years earlier by another lawyer. Mr. Collins offered to go through the stacks of case files which was a 12-year ordeal and later consulted with me on that as well - pro bono. It was the first time in years that I was finally able to let go of their legal decision, and I thank him for that. I highly recommend Siskinds Law Firm, in particular Mr. Collins and Ms. Howlett. They are experienced, professional individuals who work hard to get the best results for their clients. - S.R.
There are no words to really express how we feel. We would like to say it was Mr. [Jim] Virtue and Gina Pennington who accomplished the happenings yesterday. What you have done as a legal team in work, planning, orchestrating and managing boggles our collective minds! Truly there should be a gold medal for outstanding lawyers and legal assistants…you both deserve so much and our hearts will always be grateful. We will actually miss the encouraging conversations with Mr. Virtue and communicating with Gina over all these years. Neither of you ever gave up on us no matter how deep the waters and difficult the process! Our expert witness selected by Mr. Virtue, commented to us: "I have never seen a better prepared case!" There are no words sufficient to say what thankfulness we are all feeling, so we can only say thank you! You have contributed more than you can imagine toward our healing as the remnants of a family. We feel stronger and more empowered to carry on. - A.
It will never happen to me. How many times have I said that over the years... well I was wrong. It did happen to me. I was involved in an MVA that I had no fault in, and I was lucky to live through. Unfortunately I did get injured. I didn't know what, where or whom to turn to. My sister recommended contacting a lawyer. I followed her advice and contacted the law firm of Siskinds - specifically Emily Foreman. This turned out to be one of the smartest calls I have ever made. I was a little intimidated, as I think all of us are in the presence of lawyers, but Emily made me feel very comfortable and at ease. Emily went above and beyond in handling my case. She asked questions I would never have thought to, and answered anything I could come up with. Emily kept me up to date with either a phone call or an e-mail. I could reach her anytime I needed and if she wasn't available her Law Clerk Adrienne was. Emily is a true professional: clever, articulate and so much more. I almost felt sorry for the other side. My overall rating of my experience with both Emily and Siskinds as a whole would be a 10 out of 10. From the moment you walk in the door you are made to feel welcomed and the prompt, courteous service goes a long way. - D.S.
