I've heard the Employment Law Show on CFRA for some time. When I required the skills of an Employment Lawyer it was a no-brainer that I would call Samfiru Tumarkin LLP. I was INSTANTLY confident with their legal knowledge and passion. The final agreement had many times greater severance than my employer's original offer.
