Default Ottawa Lawyer recommendation

After much research and interviews, I have compiled a short-list of lawyers that I would consider to hire as my lawyer. My case is contentious and the other side are playing hard-ball, wanting to go to trial.

Give the rules of the board I understand we can't post reviews here so if anyone has good/bad/ugly experience with the following please PM me directly.

Cecil J. Lyon
David Sinclair
Tania Pompilio
Jack Pantalone

thanks!

You can also check canlii for their names to see what kinds of cases they have been involved in and what the results were like.

Thanks FoF. I have used CanLii but unfortunately the vast majority of cases are not reported there so doesn't give the complete picture.

There's also Find a Lawyer - Lawyer Reviews and Ratings - LawyerRatingz.com for informal ratings, best taken with a grain of salt (remember the classic internet caveat that for every negative review, there are ten positive experiences that go unreported) and The Law Society of Upper Canada - Lawyer and Paralegal Directory where you can look up discipline history of members.
