Testimonials

I’m the first one to say that I’ve had the past negative experiences with lawyers. When I approached YYC employment Law group I expected more of the same. I was very wrong, and very happily surprised. My first issue was negotiating a constructive dismissal suit with Randi Collins. We had an hour, with a thorough discussion and review of options, and was prepped with everything I needed to do in order to negotiate a fair settlement. She prepped regarding legal precedents, costs that would have to be incurred by my former employer in the settlement, and gave me the direction I needed to be able to negotiate an additional month of severance.

When I started corresponding with Erika, I knew that I picked the right lawyer. Her emails were prompt and her legal insights and honest advice were spot on. I felt I could trust her. As a result of Erika’s suggestions and guidance, my employment legal mater was resolved fast.

Just had initial consult with Barry Clapp, very impressed. Scheduling was quick and easy, nice office space, I provided some preliminary notes and outlines which Barry had reviewed beforehand so we could focus on the details and important insights right away. He answered many questions thoughtfully and honestly and was very upfront about their fixed costs throughout the various stages that could be required. Have not made a decision and moved forward yet but felt compelled to write this review, will amend with an update should I continue.
