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.
[Anna Szczurko] I wanted to let you know that I appreciate the work that you have done for me, as well as the caring you showed, from the start. Having you and Courtenay [Keenan], and Jim [Mays] looking after my legal was nice. And, with hopes of never needing a lawyer for any major issues, I would hire you (and Siskinds) again. - M.N.
We are so incredibly proud, honoured and truly grateful to have Emily Foreman act as our lawyer. The high quality of her work, tireless devotion and indefatigable determination to get the job done sets her apart from the rest. - J.M. & N.M.
Anna [Szczurko] provided me with a positive experience during a difficult time. She was always willing to speak with me and answer my questions and take her time with me. I would recommend her to anyone who has been in an accident and needs assistance because she is super sweet and you need someone who cares but at the same time she will go to bat for you so you get the assistance you need. - J.
