Albert Klein and his assistant Stephanie/ and Jennifer have been absolutely amazing through this whole process. If there were 10 stars then I'd give them that. Right from the beginning Albert made me feel safe. Knowing my case was in capable hands took so much stress off my mind. I was always treated with the upmost respect even if I didn't understand how to do something on the computer. Stephanie always talked me through it and then it got done. When time came for mediation Albert talked me through the process and made sure I understood what was going to happen. He fought for me, he fought to get the best price and best outcome for me. He is the best lawyer I have ever talked to. Thanks Albert and Stephanie for all your hard work on my case.. I will never forget all you did for me 💜

Almost a year since I signed their contingency agreement and they never keep me updated on my case. It took them 2 months to contact my former employer and then 5 months to follow up on my case with them and now it's been 4 months without ever giving me a update. This firm needs some customer sevice lessons.

If you need a lawyer to represent YOU do not retain this office-----if you decide to -- you will get someone to send an email from your employer, their lawyer will send one back to your this office. this office will send a gentle email-- not attempting to cover any of the events of your dismissal-you will get one back-- Samfiu Tumarkin LLP will contact you by email heavily pressuring to to accept-- You will not even get the decency of a phone call from SAMFIRI TUMARKIN--a couple emails is all---- IF YOU NEED SOMEONE tO HEAR YOUR STORY AND REPRESENT YOU___ find someone else.

Albert Klein, Injury & Disability Law Partner was incredible to work with! An authentic individual is how I would describe him. He was passionate, professional about my case and treated me with dignity and respect. His Legal Assistant Stefanie Aivalis was professional, thorough and so pleasant to work with. Thank you for your efforts and success.

From the moment I contacted them till the final paper work was all signed and taken care of Mr Jeremy Herman and his assistant Miss Kristen Anderson were always there to answer any questions I had.

Their patience and understanding was out standing. They both seem to have a natural way of explaining the whole process and what to expect in the different stages. As sometime legal matters can seem to be a labyrinth of verbal communications " we said this , but actually we meant that"

They were very easily accessible and did not stick to the anthem of "you can reach me only between 9 to 4:30pm"

Once again I was very impressed by there patience.

Thank you for all your assistance Jeremy & Kristen

I was recommended to your firm, when I found myself terminated from my current employment. I am at the age of retirement, but still needed to work as we are carrying a mortgage and such. I was given clear and necessary advice and felt included in the whole process. Christopher Justice was instrumental in my success and I am very thankful. Stephanie McDonald was also a blessing in my case. I am thankful to say that I have my settlement and peace of mind. I would not hesitate recommending this firm and it's staff to everyone in need of their help.

I would recommend this law firm to anyone looking for help with Long term disability or short term disability from their insurance company. I reached out to them after I had been denied twice and I couldn’t get an exact answer as to why I was denied. I was in touch with by the lawyer assigned to my case within two days of me calling the firm. He happily took my case and I can say it was the beet thing I did. Besides being extremely knowledgeable, he was always friendly and kind, answered all of my questions whenever I reached out, and he treated me with absolute respect, I was a person to him and his team not just another case, he showed me empathy and compassion which is very hard to find in a person let alone receive from someone you just met. They were amazing and I would call them again if I needed to.

My LTD was cut off. Albert Klein took my case. He is so friendly, helpful and patient. I would highly recommend Albert. I would give more than five stars if I could. He fought hard for me with the LTD lawyer, who was not accommodating at all. Great firm, great lawyer in Albert Klein.

Mackenzie you are the best of the best...

I had a very successful experience with STAN FAINZILBERG. I would recommend him if you think that severance you've been suggested is not fair.

I was put on temporary leave due to Covid affecting my employer's business worldwide. After several months I was told my temporary leave would be permanent. Strangely enough I came across a link for After an initial discussion I was put in touch with Jenson Leung in Vancouver. Jenson was very articulate and insightful. He armed me with information which helped me make an informed decision. Thanks Jenson for helping me make the right decision! I highly recommend you!

Melanie Henriques took on our case against Unpaid overtime and wrongful dismissal.
She and her assistant took the time to meet me and explain the situation from a legal standpoint and what my options were. All negotiations were handled by her office while keeping me informed and the results were successful. I would not hesitate to recommend this agency and Melanie Henriques.

Andrew Goldberg 'gets the job done'! An outstanding Lawyer and most amazing Gentleman. Not only is Andrew extremely proficient, understanding, and compassionate but also so very resourceful and an expert at his trade/role. His intelligence adds to his occupation - a professional Lawyer who is fully aware and ahead of his time. It was great knowing that he had my back as well as, he allowed me to share & contribute any suggestions/ideas offered to the case. Andrew was always available 24/7 and most dedicated, as our success speaks for itself. Not only is he very delightful but also committed to his task, a true asset! I would highly recommend and suggest Andrew for any job regarding the issue. I would like to add, that Andrew deserves 10 stars not 5!

I strongly recommend Samfiru Tumarkin LLP. Andrew Goldberg was my representative. I was able to work with Andrew remotely, never having to go to his office. He provided a strategy and delivered on all aspects. He exceeded my expectations

I was wrongfully dismissed at my job, after a humiliating treatment from the employer, as well as left unemployed because the employer lied about the duration of the position. After explaining my situation, this firm put a lawyer named Stan Fainzilberg. I submitted documentation to prove my case and he said they were wrong. I made a clear point in wanting to go all the way to court, but after three months, this lawyer made a U-turn and forced me to accept a very minimum settlement and completely discarded his own list of claims in the case submitted to court. He failed to comply his part in the retainer. I presented lots of evidence and even so, he never even tried to fight in court for my case. He just washed hands, took his fees, and disappeared.
Beware of this firm that hire this type of "lawyers" as going to the labor board directly will give you exactly the same compensation without the hassle and disappointment.

Thank you for leaving a review of our services, D2011. It is difficult for us to locate and review the details of your case as you have not provided us with your real name, which is vital if we are to appropriately react to your accusation.

Your review here is quite similar to one left on another review service around the same time, by another anonymous user. We therefore believe you wrote both reviews.

The lawyers at our firm work extremely hard produce the best results possible for our clients. If any concerns are brought to our attention, we take them quite seriously.

Your suggestion that the Ministry of Labour will always give you the exact same compensation that lawyers are able to obtain is incorrect, otherwise our firm and numerous others would not be able to celebrate the success of thousands of clients who saw their severance packages increase significantly from their original offers (which are usually based on ESA minimums).

I had an excellent experience with this Company, especially with their Licensed Paralegal Melanie Henriques. She is very patient, dealt with the case in a very professional manner. She's very calm which added to her strong personality. She gave me confidence in myself and in my claim and I was very pleased with the results. I was lucky to have her as my representative in my case and would highly recommend her to anybody in need of such services and I will continue to refer Samifru and Tumarkin LLP.

It was a pleasure working with my lawyer, David Vaughan, and his assistant, Rose Genele. My job was terminated without cause after 8 years of service. Everything was solved very quickly and efficiently. We did not even go to court. I am very satisfied with my settlement. Thanks again David and Rose.

The mere fact of losing a job to wrongful dismissal is stressful. Paul S made it easy and less stressful. The dedication and hard work did pay off. Thanks to the caring individuals at Samfiru I am at ease and can venture into a new aspect of my life. Thank you so very much.
