    I was in distressed for 24 hours when I unexpectedly lost my job yesterday. This morning, I had a meeting, and it turns out, I'm not the only one in this position when it comes to employment and that makes this stress less heavy. Thank you Achkard Law for your support and expertise.Looking forward to working with you.Gisele
    The whole team, from the start with Rachel and Charles to the conclusion of the hard work and success by Natalie was very positive. I have never been in a situation of constructive dismissal or without a job. They were an outstanding resource and well worth it. I hope they continue to expand their business and hopefully come out west. I would certainly recommend this company and particularly Natalie.
    A very positive experience with professional and forward thinking individuals. Thank you for the hard work.
    Excellent, professional and thorough. Communication was always clear and concise and they were open and available for questions and support throughout the whole process. Everyone I dealt with at the office was great. Thank you Madison, Charles and Natalie for your quality work! Couldn't be happier with the process from beginning to end and of course, the result.
    Christopher was extremely supportive during a transitional period at my workplace. Together, we explored my options, and his guidance was consistently insightful. I had an outstanding experience and would certainly enlist his services again anytime in the future.
    I had spoken with Mariel. She was really sympathetic and made everything easy to understand. Calmed my nerves and explained everything fully.
    I had the pleasure of working with Chris regarding a severance package. He was thorough, asked great questions, and made sure things I hadn't thought about were covered and that I was being treated fairly. In addition to being happy with the quality of Chris' work, he was kind and even asked about my daughter. He clearly cares about people and that value came through in our conversations which I appreciated.
    My first consultation meeting with associate lawyer Mariel was very positive and helpful. I really appreciated her questions, empathy, listening, and expertise and advice she was able to give even at the very beginning of my file. If my work situation doesn't improve, I do look forward to working with Mariel and the Achkar Law firm team to tackle the issues.
    I had a great experience. Great team, very helpful and understanding. Will use them again in the future.
    Madison was a great resource and put my mind to ease. I look forward to working with Madison to resolve my claim. Achkar Law took the time to research my concerns, were quick to respond on line and spoke to a lawyer within 24 hours. They provide kind and friendly service and care about their clients.
    Charles was very knowledgeable and resolute during our strategy consultation. I appreciated having skilled eyes on our contracts, which will undoubtedly pay off in the long term.
    I had a talk with Charles Millar, and he was a gentleman and a scholar. Very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. He demonstrated in depth understanding of the rules and laws surrounding my issue, which made me feel comfortable in his representation.I’ll continue to utilize the skills of Charles as well as the rest of his team.
    Charles is an absolute professional. He is approachable and answers all the questions that I have regarding my case. He read through all the materials that I shared with him before the meeting, so that I did not need to repeat myself. Our strategy session was very productive, and he shared all the actionable steps and provided great legal advice. I will reach out to him again if we need additional help.
    Great people to talk to if you need adviceOn a problem you are not sure of give them a call and get it off your mind the best in the business

    Charles was patient and answered all or questions the"Strategy Session" was so worth it and very information rich and he helped us decide what to do.
    I have sought the advice of lawyers at Achkar Law twice. Both times my experience was fantastic. Their response times were fast and their advice was valuable and on-point.
    I had a consultation with Charles today. It was informative and very helpful. He was thorough and honest. I never felt rushed or that my concerns weren’t taken seriously. Would highly recommend reaching out to them.
    Been very happy with the whole team over the last few months. Prompt, professional, and straightforward. Highly recommend.
