Thank you and your team for all the hard work…we wanted to take this opportunity to express our gratitude.


My husband and I were very well served by John Peart. He did our wills and we were most pleased with his professionalism and his attention to detail. We were also very pleased with the work done by his secretary Susan James. We would not hesitate at all to call Mr. Peart for further legal assistance.


I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Wing for his exemplary work.


Natasha! You just have me happy tears!!!! Honestly. I feel like you were put in my path for a reason. I admire your professionalism, tact, empathy and easy going manner. I truly have felt blessed to have you help me. Thank you so much

Thanks for helping me; for being in my corner during this tough time.


I could not have accomplished this conclusion without your support and advice.

"Again I can't stress enough how much my wife and myself have appreciated your expertise and your insight throughout this ordeal. Should I need legal counsel in the future I will not hesitate to contact you."

Thanks for this. You're a well prepared persuasive advocate, that pays attention to details in the context of the big picture. It was a pleasure working together with you as well. We make a good team.


Erin did a great job in your absence, she is extremely professional and competent

Appreciate all of your help through this process. Feels very good to have closure.


I would like to thank you for the caring and competent manner in which you handled this file on my behalf. Your hard work, preparation, dedication and skill were the things that brought this matter to a successful conclusion. John, I sincerely appreciate and thank you for all your efforts.


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.
