What my clients say

I would like to thank you and your team for the exceptional work you have done in representing me in my Appeal case with the WSIB. You have all demonstrated over and over again a perfect balance of professionalism, compassion and straightforwardness. You were there for me all the way and always patient with all my questions. I can say that if the appeal had not gone the way it has, I would have been just as happy to have had you represent me. I could go on and on with multiple compliments but I think the best way to get to the point is to simply say two words...Thank you!


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 I meet with a personal injury client for the first time, the question I hear most often is: "Thanks for meeting with me, but how much money am I going to get?" Although I can provide you a range of expected damages early in your case, I cannot assess your damages until we consult an expert to provide me with an opinion as to your prognosis and needs.
