I contacted Sivan Tumarkin because my insurance company denied benefits to my paraplegic son. Prior to contacting Sivan, I had reached out to several other law firms. I was thrilled when he took on our case. The entire team went above and beyond to fight the insurance company. I recommend the firm to anyone in need of a disability lawyer to resolve an insurance issue.

I was constructively dismissed from my employer of 9 years. I made the decision to seek legal advice to learn about my option. I spoke with David Vaughan who connected with me on a human level. The result ended with a better than expected settlement. If it wasn't for Dave, I would have continued to believe that the employer is always right!

I was assisted by Chantel Goldsmith in getting a fair settlement from my former employer after being terminated without cause after 11 years of employment. She and her assistant Cassandra were very helpful and I highly recommend Chantel to anyone seeking legal assistance!

I was wrongfully terminated after 4 years on the job. After trying their Severance Pay Calculator and watching a few episodes of the Employment Law Show, I reached out to Samfiru Tumarkin LLP and I'm glad I did. They settled my case out of court and got me a very fair settlement in what I consider to be a very short amount of time.
