I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate what you have done for me during this difficult time. The compassion and understanding has been very helpful for me.

- G.S

Thank you for all the care you always seem to take in granting me understanding and flexibility. It helps me enormously, actually. Many thanks!

Please know how much our board appreciates your assistance and guidance. Quite frankly, we don't know what we would do without you.


Mr. Murray, throughout the process of the legal action which we undertook, demonstrated exemplary knowledge about the case, and skilfully steered it through the various stages necessary till a final settlement was reached. Not only that, but he was personable and approachable, which helped me feel more comfortable in the unfamiliar world of litigation. I am glad to have him as my lawyer, and am delighted about the settlement that was reached in the end. I have a feeling that he has a bright future ahead of him.


"I can’t express how happy I am to have had your help through everything. Your support and hard work made all the difference."

- M.S.

It goes without saying how very appreciative I am for all your assistance and support.


"He is a gifted lawyer and a genuine pleasure to work with. Bryan was extremely helpful in guiding us through the process and in closing all of the properties with ease."

I am really so grateful. It has been an extraordinary journey and major upheaval. However, with your excellent work, your determination and perseverance, all is done and we are breathing such a sigh of relief. We are standing and breathing better than ever. Thank you again. - C

Thanks Marie! It was great working with you too. I wish all claims were as smooth..you made it look so easy.


I will always recommend [you to] anyone who needs a good lawyer in cases like this because you're certainly an asset to your profession


[Friends] asked me to recommend a good lawyer. My instinct was to turn to Nelligan O'Brien Payne. My good fortune was to find you and be able to recommend you to them. Indeed, I wanted to personally thank you for the wise, knowledgeable, courteous and effective services which you provided to [my friends]. They are very pleased and much relieved.


I felt heard and supported as Alice’s client, and she knows her stuff. I have already recommended her.
