Ways We Know We’re Making a Difference

Ways We Know We’re Making a Difference

As the holiday season ends and a fresh new year is upon us, we at Share Lawyers want to look back at all we’ve accomplished in 2015 with our clients, each other, and our community. It was a very fulfilling year for our team, and we invite you to join us as we look back at some of the ways we know we’re making a difference.

Making A Difference For Kids Help PhoneMaking a Difference with Kids Help Phone

In 2015, the Share Lawyers team completed the Kids Help Phone Walk-a-thon and helped raise over $1200 for a cause that is close to our hearts. Kids Help Phone is the only national professional counselling service support children 24/7 all year long. The Walk-a-Thon was the latest in a number of Kids Help Phone events that the Share Lawyers team attended, with previous events including the Goodies for Giving Cookbook, T-shirt Fridays, and Kids Help Phone Lunches. We look forward to continuing to work with this great organization in 2016!

Community Events and Activities Blogs

At Share Lawyers we strive to stay active in and around our community by making a difference, and like to highlight neighbourhoods, activities, and local businesses that we think our clients and their families would enjoy. Some of our highlights in 2015 included:

Our Beginnings

We opened our first office in 1987 in Mississauga, and have since grown to include claims from all over Canada. From the very beginning Share Lawyers offered a very personal service focused on providing caring and compassionate advocacy for the disabled and injured. We built a reputation based on tireless representation and straight negotiating with insurance companies who respect the integrity with which we advocate on behalf of our clients, and continue to uphold these values to the present day.

Making A Difference As We've Grown Our Business

Focusing on Compassion

Throughout the years and changes in the way that legal services are delivered, our goal has been to provide vindication for people who thought they had no chance of recovering anything. Knowing that the funds that we have helped recover will help someone get the treatment they need, or be able to return to school, or work, are compelling reasons for us to work hard to recover the best outcomes we can for our clients.

Testimonials and Success Stories

Above all, our impact of making a difference is measured through the kind words of our clients and their families. We’ve received so many thoughtful cards, letters, and gifts from clients that we have helped, and every testimonial and success story helps drive home that we continue to help people.

“I just want to thank you for the excellent service and care that was given to me during the time of my case. It was shorter than I could have ever imagined….Thanks to Shira, who was most informative and helpful when I called for help or verification to anything I did not grasp or understand. The receptionists were well-suited to their job also. They accommodated us each time we came to the office. Thanks to Steven Muller, who handled our meeting with the other lawyers in such a great manner, his professionalism was first class. My husband and I were very thankful at how our settlement meeting ended.” – D.D., long-term disability claim

“The insurance company does not care if you are sick. Mr. Share and his team do. Thank you, thank you, thank you!” – Cheryl L.

“Your staff went above and beyond. They were polite, caring and interested in what I had to say! I am more than satisfied with the results. Before Share Lawyers, I had just about given up on receiving compensation from insurance.” – Shirley M.

“The settlement was more than we thought we could obtain and a great settlement for me. I only wish I had called sooner than I did.” – Brenda, S.

“Wonderful! Efficient – very informative! I felt welcomed and comfortable for the duration of my case. I loved getting a phone call every time there was an update. I felt like I was part of a team/family.” – Emily, J.

Our focus for 2016 will be to continue to strive to assist all those who need our help, and we look forward to hearing from you in the future.
