Toronto lawer suggestions?
 
Hi

Not sure if this is the right forum, but I'm up against Harold Niman and an unreasonable ex-wife who won't agree to anything without court. Likely going to trial. Does anybody have any recommendations for a lawyer who can help me in Toronto? Cost not a major factor as long as they can handle Niman. So far the reviews on lawyers recommended to me have been terrible!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

where are you reading the reviews?

Take on-line reviews with a grain of salt and keep in mind that many on-line review sites for lawyers are merely disgruntled people who were creamed by the lawyer (of course they will write like they hired the lawyer themselves with the hope that it will tarnish lawyer's reputation - not).

Make a list of potential lawyers and see if you can either interview them by phone or make an appointment. You should have a well-thought out list of questions to ask. Often times competent lawyers will meet with you if they have time but be prepared to pay them their hourly rate for this meet-and-greet hour.

Worry less about the lawyer (Niman?) your lawyer would be going up against and worry more about how solid your position is and how to avoid trial and reach a settlement.

If cost is not an objective:

Philip M. Epstein | Epstein Cole

Phil knows Harold.

Phil Epstein doesn't do litigation anymore.

I won't recommend myself, but I do like Jennifer Watson, Heather Hanson and Aaron Franks All are litigators who are comfortable in court, I have personally seen them.

I would recommend Salvatore Mannella as my second choice if Phil isn't taking on litigation clients.
