Ontario Rehab Alliance Breakfast Workshop - [Jim Mays], I wanted to let you know also that your firm made a very positive impression on a number of participants, including myself, who hadn't previously been very familiar with Siskinds (due to working outside of London). Speaking personally, I was impressed with your knowledge of the SABS and medical-rehab services along with your commitment to advocacy for your clients, all while still maintaining the integrity of the system (i.e., no slimy maneuvering :)). To me, this makes for the perfect law firm and you have now been added to my list of dream-team members members if I'm ever involved in an accident. - J. H., Speech-Language Pathologist
Jim [Virtue] is an amazing lawyer and I am so grateful to him for everything he has done. I don't know much about the law and was very unsure about what happens when you sue someone, but Mr. Virtue always was so kind and knowledgeable and he always told me to just concentrate on the foot and he would take care of the legal stuff. I can't say enough about the whole Siskinds team. Each and everyone I have encountered from the reception ladies in the lobby to the entire legal team are true professionals and are credits to their profession. - K.M.
Rasha [El-Tawil] helped me through my personal injury claim, getting benefits and treatment, and being re-trained for a new career. I want to say thank you for getting us a great settlement! This process has been a long one and I appreciate everything you have done for me and my family. You have impressed us throughout this entire process with your professionalism and the way you care. My wife and I do not look at you as my "LAWYER", but as our friend!!! You are a great lawyer, and I would recommend you to anyone. Thanks again for everything! - J
For over four months after my father died, my sister/co-executor disputed many things about the settlement of my father's will. Many of her arguments were not even relevant to my father's will, which was very straightforward. She took a totally unreasonable position and would not agree to the statement of attorney accounts which I had prepared as a power of attorney. Therefore, I retained Dagmara [Wozniak] to help resolve this matter. She was very professional and effective. She advised that my position was fair and reasonable and she vigorously defended my position against my sister's lawyer. She kept me apprised of all actions and communications throughout the process. In the end, Dagmara negotiated a deal that upheld my position without the cost of taking the matter to court. -S.J.
My daughter and I were in a serious accident when another driver turned into our lane of traffic. I was fortunate enough to have a lawyer give me the name of Emily Foreman at Siskinds. Making the appointment to go and see Emily Foreman was one of the best decisions I have ever made, for both my daughter's health and my health. When a father see his daughter hurt, to have someone help us the way Emily did was truly a great feeling. Emily was very patient with us, and understanding of the pain that my daughter and I were in. She took the time to explain the legal process and the steps we could take to recover. Emily handled every situation professionally and guided us through the tough times. Without Emily's help, I am sure we would never have received the quality of rehabilitation treatment that we received. I truly believe that both my daughter and I will have a better quality of life because we called. - K.
These are a few personal thoughts of my perspective from working with Jim Mays. I was injured when a driver turned left in front of me. I was riding a motorcycle to work, so I suffered several broken bones and a brain injury. Jim is a very thoughtful and considerate man who took my personnel situation into full consideration. He has a very personable nature and a family oriented lifestyle. This allowed the comfort I needed to build our relationship continued friendship. His diligent and stern professional work ethic is impressive and when needed applied gracefully! Working with Jim allowed me to focus on my personal rehab as Jim and his team took care of all legal, funding and conflict issues which occur when one is vulnerable after an injury. I am honoured to have worked with Jim and grateful of our existing friendship! Thanks. D.B.
