You did an outstanding job today. Your professionalism was appreciated. You ran the show and held it together. You put me in the drivers seat and I enjoy being the driver. Thank you.

We were extremely fortunate to have Tracy Lyle represent our family during a lengthy and complex legal process. (continued below)


I simply need to thank you for the fabulous work you’ve done for my mother thus far. Thank you for your time and considerable talents!

"I have had the opportunity to be represented by Carol Craig over the last 6 months. Simply put, Carol's knowledge, presentation, dedication, hard work ethic is second to none. Carol is very detailed, and understands the big picture of family law. I felt more than comfortable working through our relocation case with Carol and her team. I will be forever grateful for the decision I made to work with Carol. I highly recommend Carol's services in Family Law."

WOW. We are both extremely impressed with such detailed content and feeling more confident than we have in quite a while.

She was extremely courteous, knowledgeable, and most importantly able to articulate the answers to my questions in a concise and understandable manner. She represented your firm with distinction and I am sure she will be an asset in the years to come. She has definitely ensured that I will remain a client of your firm for the foreseeable future.


Thanks for all of your help over the years.


Thank you (and big thanks to your team, too) for all of your work!!!


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.


Thanks so much for your hard work. Great job at keeping it out of our hair and dealing with insurance. Every few days there seems to more expenses or decreased income due to the injury, 'this is why we have a great lawyer' has become a mantra.


"Bryan went above and beyond to ensure we were informed and included in all decisions and next steps."

Marta, I can’t say enough about the professional support I have received from you and the team. It has been invaluable

"Thanks so much for your kindness, patience, understanding, ability to listen, professionalism and for going above and below to seek help for me."
