Wrongful Termination Lawyer in Niagara

Perhaps you’ve been unfairly terminated by your employer. Resolution of this situation could land you in court, amassing legal fees you’ll never be able to pay – or you could hire a wrongful termination lawyer in Niagara to resolve such issues through negotiation. I know how to provide the advice and legal knowledge you need without pushing you into litigation. I’m determined to settle your situation as quickly and economically as possible while protecting your interests.


Do you want to know a little insider information about seeking legal advice from a lawyer? Many times your legal question will simply not justify an official office visit. I can often assist you immediately with basic legal information during our first telephone contact, and there's never a charge for that. YOU get to decide whether retaining further legal assistance is advisable.

Here's another tip: Did you know that many smaller legal cases do not require the services of a lawyer on full retainer? Recent amendments at the Law Society of Upper Canada now permit Ontario lawyers to offer what is termed unbundled legal services to our clients. Say, for example, you need basic assistance in drafting your Statement of Claim in Small Claims Court, but you do not wish to pay for my full representation at the courthouse. Yes, I can now help with that. And this can mean significant cost savings to you. So, contact my office today. I can either assess your issue by telephone, or schedule an appointment for a discounted initial consultation.*
