$13.375 Million Settlement Approved in Norman Barwin Class Action
Today, Regional Senior Justice Calum MacLeod of the Ontario Superior Court approved the ground-breaking settlement reached earlier this year in[...]

I have had the great pleasure of being represented, as the plaintiff, by Peter in a lawsuit culminating in an arduous six week out-of-town trial. It was a complicated multi-million dollar lawsuit against a large US Corporation. Essentially, it was a David versus Goliath endeavour. With Peter’s skills and stewardship, we prevailed.

Peter’s in depth knowledge of the file, command of the issues and experienced decorum in the courtroom were invaluable and readily apparent as well as a great source of comfort during such a stressful time.

Hopefully, I will not encounter such a conflict again but, if I did, Peter would be the first call. It is difficult to put in writing the extreme value of being represented by someone of Peter’s caliber including his dedication, intelligence, stamina and extensive “in court” experience. I believe one must view legal expenses as an investment from a cost-benefit perspective. I have no doubt that hiring Peter is one of the very best investments I have ever made.

I would like to thank you and all the people I have dealt with, who have helped and taught things to me during the process. I was truly amazed by a few things that happened to me. The people from Nelligan O'Brien Payne were wonderful and kind. I would recommend your firm to anybody who requires legal representation.

"Thank you, thank you. What a wonderful lady and she was a huge help."

Despite only having a week to prepare, he handled our mediation very well and displayed an amazing aptitude for the issues at hand when one considered his limited preparation time. I feel that he did a great job for us and went far beyond mere competence in the handling of our case.

-J.R.

Congratulations and thank you for a job well done! I have no doubt that this good result was in large part due to your advocacy!

-K.O.

It is difficult to to put into words just how grateful my family and I are for the knowledge, assistance and guidance while working with Peter and his team.

Thank you very much for the smooth process and your very professional approach! It was a pleasure to deal with you and your firm and will most definitely use you in the future or refer friends and family members to you!


-S.M.

You are a STAR. Thank you for dealing so effectively with last night's AGM. In spite of some "tense" moments you kept your professional (yet warm) attitude. We could not have sailed through it without you.

-P.L.

I was labeled catastrophic and received a traumatic brain injury from a car hitting me as a pedestrian. In recovery while staying in numerous hospitals, institutes and the list goes on for TBIs, I saw a few patients with similar status as mine go on and commit suicide. Peter and Jessica helped me every step of the way through this lawsuit. During mediation, if I wanted something done they stepped back and informed me of any sort of consequences with my actions. They again asked my approval then proceeded, with receiving more than I was informed about at the beginning. I highly recommend them.

-B.M

Thank you for today's meeting at your office. It was very rewarding. I'm glad to know my file is in your hands.
