Share lawyer provided a great service! They were thorough and kept me in the loop. Although a lengthy process Share was able to deliver satisfactory results. I enjoyed my experience with the assistance everyone collectively offered.

ALL the staff members, from receptionists, assistants, to lawyers were exceptional. All explained the processes, the fees, the timeline, the expectations, the legal reasonings, in a straightforward and easily understood manner. I was kept up to date date either by phone or email, in a timely manner. My negotiating lawyer (Brad Pleavin), was available to further explain the situation to me, if I was not sure about any detail. I am beyond pleased with the work everyone does at Share Lawyers!

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.

II had an excellent experience with Share Lawyers. From the first phone call to the handshake at the end. I felt like a valued client. I also felt that everyone at Share Lawyers was advocating for me, an experience I did not have with the disability insurer. Thank you for everything
