One day a police car pulled up to grandma’s house and grandpa got out. The officer explained that the elderly gentlemen said he was lost in the park.
"Why, Bill," said Grandma, "You’ve been going there for over 30 years! How could you get lost?"
Leaning close to Grandma so the police officer couldn’t hear, he whispered, "I wasn’t exactly lost. I was just too tired to walk home."

IN PERSON: MIA WRIGHT (continued from page 1)
The criminal proceedings against her ex-husband were painful and drawn out. Mia really wanted to get back to work and put the past behind her, but neither the case, nor her flashbacks, would allow her to move on.
INSURER CLAIMS INSUFFICIENT MEDICAL EVIDENCE
When Mia’s short-term disability ran out, she applied for long-term disability. This time, the insurance company denied her claim. Although her psychiatrist had filled out the attending physician’s statement and written a letter stating that Mia was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder due to the attack, they did not think that the evidence sufficiently proved that she was totally disabled from performing the essential duties of her occupation.
With her psychiatrist’s help, Mia appealed the decision. Each time, she was denied. After three appeals and eight months without income, Mia’s savings—and her hope—were depleted.
HOW SHARE LAWYERS HELPED
Mia’s psychiatrist referred her to David Share. While she was wary of hiring a lawyer, Mia felt she had exhausted all her options.
Upon meeting Mr. Share, she wondered what had taken her so long to seek legal counsel. Mr. Share and his associates were compassionate, patient and understanding. Most important, they had extensive experience helping clients with PTSD and had proven success fighting these types of claims.
Throughout the handling of her case, Mia felt informed and empowered by the Share Lawyers team. They were truly experts in their field and handled the insurance company’s aggressive tactics strategically and with the utmost professionalism. As they built her case, no detail was left out.
When mediation day arrived, Mia was nervous but knew she was in good hands. Steven Muller put forth a strong case in her favour and negotiated with determination while maintaining compassion for her fragile emotional state.
She was very satisfied with the way Share Lawyers settled her case and with the substantial settlement amount they secured for her. Having the finances to care for her family was one less thing to worry about as she continued with treatment for her condition. SP
