My divorce proceedings began in a cool and calm manner until my ex began to make unreasonable demands and hired a lawyer with an aggressive style. During this process my emotions were tempered with a cool, calm, and logical approach by Camille [Riggs]. She kept me focused on the big picture, relevant issues, and coming to a sensible resolution despite what was being put before us. Without being argumentative or being the one to prolong this matter, Camille managed to secure a support order that was better than my original offer. She clearly knows the law and her role and provided me with great advice and a cool head during an emotional time of my life. - A.D.
Being the victim of an accident was the hardest thing I have ever had to go through emotionally and physically. I did not know my rights, what I was entitled to, or how to go about the whole process. A friend that heard about my accident contacted me and told me about how Rasha [El-Tawil] at Siskinds helped him throughout his accident case. It was then, that I contacted Rasha and she went over what to expect and how to go about the whole process. Right away, I was glad I had Rasha on my side. She was the only person throughout the whole process that actually cared to help me whether I needed an appointment with a doctor or just advice. She always did her best to help me when it seemed that no one else did. Needless to say, my case was resolved quickly and efficiently. I even ended up better off than I ever thought I would. I'm glad I made that call to Siskinds because I would not be where I am today if it wasn't for Rasha's help. I would hands down recommend Rasha's services to anyone. - C.
On July 31 2003 my life changed. I was rear ended on my motorcycle and badly injured a long way from home. Laying in the hospital bed all I could do was worry about my future i.e. losing my job, mortgage payments etc. I thought things will be O.K. because I have insurance. Once I got home and filed a claim I quickly found out the Insurance company was not my friend. The person that hit me was charged with Dangerous driving causing bodily harm and the insurance company was treating me like I was the villain. After three weeks of them making my life more miserable a friend suggested I contact Jim Mays at Siskinds. I met with Jim and he took the case then things got better no more harassing phone calls or letters. Jim's staff made sure I got the accident benefits that I was entitled to some of which the insurance company never even told me about. Over the years Jim and his staff fought to keep my accident benefits and fought legal battles with two insurance companies. In the end Jim Mays negotiated two insurance settlements with my well being the significant priority. In closing my experience with Jim Mays and Siskinds law firm was a good one and I would recommend them to anybody. - R.H.F.
Last year I was in a MVA and as a result I’ve had and continue to have a lot of appointments, both from doctors and therapists. However one of the first things I got started with after the MVA was a lawyer to help with a number of things including my rights as an insured person in an accident. I’ve had Rasha El-Tawil at Siskinds Law Firm in London, Ontario for quite a few months now. Rasha and her assistant law clerk Tina have done an exceptional job for me and continue to do an amazing job, day after day. They have helped me with so much and relieved a lot of stress and uncertainty after my MVA. If the unfortunate happens, and you or someone you know are in a motor vehicle accident, I wouldn’t hesitate to call Siskinds as they are not only highly knowledgeable in personal injury, but extremely friendly as well. They can help make a horrible situation a little less stressful and I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of a knowledgeable and extremely friendly lawyer. – D.K.
I just wanted to thank you [Anna Szczurko] so much for all your help and compassion over the last five years. Being in the car accident in 2015 and trying to get my life, and my families lives, back on track has been a difficult time. I am very happy we had you on our side to help out with all the paperwork and doctors, and keeping everything in order. Also, the help with the tribunals. It was your positive energy and keeping me calm that helped through the stressful times. Keep up doing everything you do to help your clients. The sweet and sincere way you approach every problem or set back helps get us as a client to look in the same direction and find the beautiful lights at the end of a long dark tunnel. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts. -K.H.
From my first meeting with Camille [Riggs] I immediately recognized the depth and breadth of her experience in family matters, and could easily appreciate her no-nonsense approach. In situations involving the breakdown of a marriage, it is far too easy to get caught in the weeds of irrelevant and time wasting issues. Though empathetic, Camille was able to help guide me away from the sometimes overwhelming emotion and enable me to see things in a clearer and more holistic way. She was also effectively able to create a healthy balance between: level setting my expectations, dealing with reality, and ensuring that I was not being bullied or treated unfairly – all while not wasting time or resources unnecessarily. I highly recommend Camille as a representative in family matters, especially those involving custody and the wellbeing of children. - M.G.
