I want to thank you [Jim Mays] and Siskinds for the great work you did for me over the past few years. From day one, I knew that you and the whole firm were in my camp working to help me get true justification for my case. I never felt that I wasn't important enough for your consideration and I really appreciate the time and effort by you and Siskinds, on my behalf, to get the results I was looking for. If I have a future need, I am confident that Siskinds will be able to get the best results possible for my complete satisfaction. Thank you. - J.B.

When I woke up in the hospital following a motorcycle collision, the best advice I have ever been given in life came in the form of, "Get a good personal injury lawyer". Jim Mays at Siskinds came recommended at the top of that list. Jim and all his support staff took a personal interest in my case and even though I know they were busy with other clients as well, always had time to answer my questions when I had them. Jim reads people extremely well, talks to them on their level and has the knack of explaining in terms that are easily understood by those of us unfamiliar with legal jargon or the insurance system. Wendy Highley, Jackie [Sweich], and Tina took care of the day to day tasks making sure I was notified of meetings, assessments etc., and had the correct forms filled out and submitted on time. My family and I truly want to thank them for all of that, and ALL they have done for me. It is greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend Jim Mays and all his staff to anyone in a similar situation. D.H.D.F., B.Sc.
Chris Sinal has been providing our large not-for-profit management-side employment and labour advice for over 4 years. His capacity to understand our unique needs and efficiently tailor his legal advice to those needs has resulted in the successful resolutions of many matters. Chris is sensitive to our organizational values and humanistic approach to managing and resolving our employment and labour issues. And, I have learned so much from his informative and educational approach to consultations about a variety of topics – including collective bargaining, interpretation of collective agreements, terminations, pay equity and employment contracts. Recently Chris has been advising us on a complex initiative with significant employment and labour implications. His strategic advice and knowledge of relevant legal implications has helped us to understand and plan for our emerging staffing intricacies and possibilities. - K.E.
Marie [Tukara] came to me highly recommended. Best known as someone who leads more with my heart, Marie was able to help me understand all of the stages of getting through not only my divorce but most importantly what was in the best interest of my child. It is not easy to remove emotion when dealing with matters involving your children, however with Marie’s professionalism, knowledge in all aspects of family law and her ability to speak in terms one without a law degree could understand, it made the process easier. Since then, I have had to seek council on another family law matter and there was no doubt where I would turn. I trust Marie in her ability to advise the best course of action and follow through with it. In my opinion, she is an outstanding lawyer. - L.M.C.
