Client Testimonials

Dec 02, 2019
My trust is both hard-earned and easily spent. From our first meeting until the end of my case, Alison Gilmour worked hard to earn my complete trust and respect. She took the time to make sure I understood all the steps between taking my case through completion and offered me much comfort and relief when stressed. Her tireless efforts and time spent on my case were much appreciated and resulted in a positive conclusion to my case. I owe many thanks to Alison and the entire staff at Share Lawyers; without whom, I would not have received any closure in my disability case. If you are seeking legal representation for your disability lawsuit, please consider Share Lawyers.

The office is efficient and kept me apprised of any progress in my case. Kirk Sloane was meticulously prepared for my mediation meeting and there is no doubt in my mind that he worked in my best interest. I approached Share Lawyers with many reservations, but my experience leads me to recommend having their experienced team take care of any dispute you may have with your Insurer.

Share Lawyers was amazing. Their team worked together flawlessly on my case. Right from day one they instilled confidence in me that they knew what they were doing and that I would be taken care of with respect and dignity. They followed through with phone calls and emails every step of the way. I was never left in the dark. Somehow, they made sense out of what didn't make sense to me. The lawyer they assigned to me, was exceptionally kind, caring and compassionate. She put me at ease immediately and displayed passion and professionalism, something that you don't see in any profession these days. It felt like someone had pressed the pause button on my life, but thanks to the Share Lawyer Team, play has been pressed, I can now move forward and start my new life.

Share Lawyers accepted my LTD claim eventhough my condition was rare and unusual. They were confident from the beginning that they could assist me. They took control of everything. I no longer had any communication with the insurance company. The stress was off my shoulders. They kept me up to date with their research. They answered all my questions. In just over 1 year my claim went to mediation and was recently settled. The staff were kind, focused and organized. They were empathetic and compassionate. Brad Pleavin was my lawyer for mediation and he was excellent! He gave me great advice and counselled me along the way. You dont pay unless you win your case. My advice, dont try to take on the insurance company on your own. Get legal advice as soon as possible. Share Lawyers helped me! It sends a message to these insurance companies ( who cut you off at the time you need them) that we have rights and deserve to get the necessary help needed.

I was referred to this particular law firm by a family member‘s friend actually three of them and they all concurred that shared lawyers was indeed the best for personal injury. Philip offered excellent advice regarding my situation and the key word that separates this firm from others is they truly want to help people. In this era it’s wonderful To know that the people that work at this law firm truly truly want to help people and that is not something you find every day.
