See What Our Clients Are Saying

My company claimed the amount of notice we were given negates any severance they would have to pay. Having heard radio ads for Samfiru Tumarkin, I contacted them and was put in touch with Lia Moody. She let me know that the notice was nowhere near sufficient and immediately sent a letter to the company. I am forever grateful to Lia and her team.

I would confidently be able to recommend Lia and her team to anyone who has been treated unfairly in the workplace. She is aggressive and passionate about getting the result you deserve, and will do what it takes to make sure you are happy with the results. I am extremely happy and feel justified after our fight with the man!!!

Stephen is highly professional and extremely knowledgeable and often went above and beyond in providing me clarifications on my (many!) questions and concerns. His friendly personality makes complicated legal matters so easy to understand! I was very happy to work with Stephen and his assistant, Courtney, and I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of legal help.

Whether your ex-employer is large or small, you NEED these guys working for you. They’re highly knowledgeable and super-professional. They take their time to explain everything and give you all the options along the way. You’re the boss, and in total control the entire time. I was so happy to have a successful conclusion in my case. Thank you so much Samfiru Tumarkin LLP!
