I want to thank Alessia Petricone-Westwood for working on my case and helping me resolve it, she did a great job, always answering all my questions, fighting for me and being there when I had a problem.


I wanted to let you know that I am more than 100 percent satisfied with the workers' compensation work that Peggy King has done for me. Her experience was able to determine the best course of action for my claim, and obtain a result in my favour. I appreciate the excellent job that Peggy King and Nelligan O'Brien Payne LLP have done in settling everything for me!


When we decided to connect with your firm, we had hoped to meet a lawyer who had the experience, knowledge and communication skills that could assist us through a process we have never gone through before. You certainly have demonstrated those skills; your guidance has been bang on. We are very grateful to have met you and have been very pleased with your thoroughness, responsiveness, thoughtfulness and professionalism as well, notwithstanding budget consciousness where possible.

Thank you for all the help you provided to me through this awful
process. You did a wonderful job and I am very satisfied with the final settlement. Thanks for all the hard work you put into this for me, I really appreciated your professionalism as well as your compassion.


I appreciated your professionalism, diligence and direct approach to resolving this matter and I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone.


"I can’t possibly imagine the process without good legal advising, I appreciate that.”

A short but heartfelt note, Marcia, to express our deep appreciation and gratitude for your wise, kind and sympathetic counsel. Your professionalism touched the both of us, blended as it was with the sincerity and patience of your attention. There is no way in which we can tell you how precious is the gift of peace of mind you have given us. We wish you and your family good fortune and for you personally, rich satisfaction in your legal career which should take you far.


Great job on the factum!

I am very glad I chose you to be my lawyer and while I hope I won't need to come to you again in the near future, but if I do you're my first call. I will also let all my friends, family etc. know that if they need any family law help they should contact you. I can't think of anyone I would trust more to help them.


Thanks for all your good work. It means a lot to me.


I wanted to thank you for your hard work over the years on my file. It was a long road and your advice was sound, your arguments appropriate, your command of the financial information precise and your performance in conferences excellent.
