    I recommend Achkar Law for any employment-related dispute. I had an issue with my former employer and was unsure how to proceed. I... contacted Achkar Law, who was able to guide me through the process and provide me with the best possible outcome. It was a stress-free experience because they had everything well organized and explained every step of the way.read more

    I honestly feel like I spoke with the best employment law firm in the GTA about my wrongful termination. Achkar was kind and really... listened to my employment issue about discrimination. They helped me during the consultation and after when I had additional questions. I got more than my moneys worth. My sincerest thanks.read more

    Now that my case is resolved, I can confidently provide a review to speak my truth and give my sincere thanks to Chris and Achkar... Law.Achkar Law helped with my wrongful, wrongful, WRONGFUL dismissal!!!!! Never in my life have I ever been in a situation like this... and truthfully, I hope to never be again. When first confronted with this situation I was extremely overwhelmed, lost countless days of sleep and was feeling very down.The inital call with Achkar Law put my mind at ease. The gentleman on the phone listened to my case, reassured me and set up a Zoom consultation strategy session to speak with a lawyer the NEXT day. They were prompt with communicating with me throughout and I felt like I was in the right hands. I was not a case number to them, I was Gladys. My case settled during mediation and I'm more than satisfied with the outcome.If you are reading this, you might very well be in a similar situation to what I was in a few weeks ago. I'm sorry this is happening to you. It is such a terrible position to be in but if you are willing to FIGHT - the Achkar Law team are the right folks to help you through.5 WELL DESERVED STARS.Many Thanks,GWread more
