Dani Z Frodis Barristers, Toronto Reviews (24)
Shelly has been a key integral part in getting my divorce finalized and has been fair and I owe a debt of gratitude to her for her service. While divorce is tough to go through for anyone, if that is the road you’re going down, I highly recommend Shelly Banihashemi. She is a solid lawyer who practices nothing but the best customer service methods.
Furthermore, the staff at the office of Dani Z Frodis are friendly, professional and sensitive to the nature of the business. They were quick to respond, attentive and very in tune with the situation I was going through. It was always a pleasure walking into their office and made things a little less daunting.
I had the greatest pleasure of working with Dani Frodis, Samantha Dineno and Shelly Banihashemi from Frodis Law. What an amazing team! My experience was professional and seamless. They took the time to ensure they addressed my concerns and answered all my questions. The separation process was as easy as it can be and straight forward. I would highly recommend Shelly to anyone looking to retain an excellent family lawyer.
I cannot believe that Shelly actually managed to help me navigate through my custody battle, the property division and divorce all in a year and a half. She did not have it easy. Opposing counsel was a senior partner from a well-known Bay street law firm with decades of experience. I could not even recall how many times we were pressured by the other side, often threatening to bring various motions against me.
What sets Shelly apart from other lawyers I have worked with is not only her ability to identify the key issues and resolve what would really affect me and my baby girl’s life, but also her kind nature. I can’t thank her enough for seeing me through the most difficult time of my life and finalizing it all in the shortest time possible. I will always be grateful.
While being mindful of my feelings and emotions, Shelly addressed the situation realistically and practically. She made sure I was taking the necessary steps to be informed, prepared and protected. She answered all of my questions while presenting realistic options, situations and outcomes. I was always provided with choices along with sound legal advice to decipher the best decisions for me. Moreover, Shelly was easy to stay in touch with, conducts timely follow ups, works diligently to avoid delays initiated by the other side, but most importantly saved my case from going to court!
I am grateful to Shelly for navigating me through this challenging time. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for legal advice and representation in family law. I believe her personalized service combined with legal expertise was a winning combination for me!
The whole team at Frodis Law is very warm and professional. It’s the kind of place where you get a hug when you need one—followed by the best possible legal advice.
Ildiko treated me like a person. She helped me sort out which battles were the ones worth fighting, and kept my children at the forefront of my efforts. She was also very thorough, and caught errors in the financials that my other lawyers hadn't, which ended up saving me thousands in my settlement.
When the time came to go to court I was shaking but felt supported and prepared. Dani is charismatic and experienced, and represented me well in negotiating my settlement.
Thankfully, after spending a lot of money and time with no results, my first lawyer recommended Dani at Frodis Law. From my first contact with Angie, Dani, Kori and Danielle I felt they had integrity. I was treated with respect and understanding, and we shared many laughs, which made this unfathomable burden easier to carry.
Kori is intuitive, practical, funny and quick as a whip. She gave me the same caring, honest guidance based on her years of knowledge and experience that she would give her close family and friends. With exacting detail she pieced together the complex financial pieces of my case and knew them with more clarity than I had recalled.
When it was time to go to court and finally trial it was Dani who represented me. He is laid back yet very sharp and observant, funny and optimistic yet realistic. With the facts of my case brilliantly organized by Kori, Dani proceeded to weave his own magic and articulately lead the judge through the web of our case including examination in chief, cross and witness. In the courtroom Dani's gifts shine. He is calm, bright, confident, and respectfully “at home.” Together Kori and Dani are yin and yang, a perfectly balanced whole held by the hard work and warmth of Angie and Danielle. I cannot imagine going through this life crisis with anyone else.
Daniel helped me save money and minimize costs. He and Dani both advised me during case conferences and I felt they were experienced, responsive and always calm. Both are Mensches. I have already recommended them to others.
My ex and I have a good relationship now, guided by the shared parenting agreement we came to through this process. I’m in a great chapter of my life, and I will always be grateful to Samantha for her support.
A close second to Dani are his associates. Dani clearly picks the cream of the crop and I’ve watched his practice and team grow steadily over the years. In those years I’ve had an opportunity to work closely with each associate on issues of child-support, custody and access issues. Every one of Dani’s associates provided stellar service and I couldn’t be happier with the arrangements in place today.
It’s been several years since I’ve had to enter a courtroom so I haven’t worked directly with Dani in quite some time. But every time I’ve come to his office to meet with one of the associates and he’s there, Dani always comes out to greet me with a big grin and a hearty handshake.
Happily, I don’t see having a need for Dani’s services again, but I’m going to miss him and everyone else I’ve come to know over the years.
I wish I had known Dani as a friend, but I’m happier that I had him as my lawyer.
Melissa and Samantha both helped me negotiate my separation agreement, with Shireen providing great backup in terms of support. In the end, we drafted an agreement that worked for both parties, and we avoided going to court.
When mediation didn't work and we had to go to court, Samantha was calm, professional, and no-nonsense. And we won our case, giving me the comfort of knowing I will be able to make the key decisions about my daughter's upbringing and care.
Shireen was a great support for me throughout my case. She was very responsive to my questions and calls, and kept me informed when it came to all of the paperwork involved. Most of all, though, she and Samantha worked incredibly well as a team"
Kori was compassionate and competent and really helped me understand the process of legal separation. She taught me a lot—especially about keeping files and having my financial records in order. That helped me not only through the legal process but also in my new life.
Angie was a great support person throughout my legal process as well. She was always available to answer any of my questions—called her many times!
Thanks to Dani Frodis Barristers, I was able to protect what meant the most to me. Robyn achieved an excellent result with the court, and my daughter's well-being is now secure. I will be forever indebted to the staff at Dani Frodis Barristers for everything they provided to me during the course of my court case.
I dealt with many of Dani's excellent team members as well. Mary and I became quite close — she was so efficient and has a terrific sense of humour, which helped a lot!
Dani is sweet and sincere in person, but in court he really performs. He is confident, competent and fantastic. I'm pretty sure my case has set precedents in Canada, and we were up against one of the country's top lawyers. We spent a month in trial, which was emotionally exhausting for me. Dani was my crusader, and we won every aspect of our case.
Dani also has an incredible support team. Angie in particular was tremendously helpful to me throughout what was an incredibly difficult time in my life. When you work with this team, you feel like you're coming into a fold.
Dani's 'bedside manner' is brilliant. I've worked with big-name Bay Street law firms who were unresponsive. Dani and his team responded the same day to my e-mails and calls, were easy to work with, and were great at managing the whole process. We won our case after a week-long trial.
On a personal level, Dani was very supportive. He gave me the time I needed to ask questions and understand the process. He also used some of his team members to deal with paperwork and other aspects of my case to keep my costs down.
Winning my case has given me the opportunity to provide a healthy, happy, safe home for my children to grow up in.
I wasn't comfortable with my first divorce lawyer. A friend recommended Dani, and I felt from the beginning that he would do the right thing for me and my family. After mediation attempts failed, we had to go to trial. Dani was sharp and clear in court, and after a difficult and drawn-out trial, we got almost everything we asked for.
I dealt with a number of Dani's team members throughout this process, and was consistently impressed. He attracts like-minded, bright people who really care
