I wanted to extend a thank you to Paul Schwartzman from Samfiru Tumarkin Law firm for his guidance and insight. He answered my questions and kept me up to date. Paul took charge of the situation which resulted in positive outcome. I would recommend, before settling a severance package that you engage Paul.

I would recommend Lumi Pungea of Samfiru Tumarkin for any labour law related matters. She and her staff were always very helpful in any questions that I had and I was always confident that she would provide me with the best legal advice in my matter. I am very happy with the outcome due to her hard work and expertise.

This law firm was great. I had a situation which required legal counsel (reviewing some contracts/documents) pertaining to my employment. I'm a bit of a procrastinator so of course I waited until the day before to begin my search for a qualified attorney. After several phone calls I ended up speaking with STL. Nicest people ever. I've never been in this situation so I was sort of telling a story; they politely cut me short after they had heard enough - and knew precisely the specific questions to ask to get the information out of me they needed in the most efficient manner. They were very honest in their ETA to my solution. Stating that even though I needed help by the following day, they had a full plate. Something about the level of professionalism they had over the phone gave me satisfaction that I could end my search. I was pleasantly surprised when I woke up the next morning to call and make sure they remembered me, the work had already begun! The best labour lawyer I have ever dealt with. A+++ service, customer support ,and professionalism! I'll be a repeat customer. Thanks again. • • • This law firm was great.

Hi, I was just recently terminated from my company after a number of years of service. Samfiru Tumarkin Lawyers provided me with great service. Everyone I spoke to and worked with made me feel that I was their number one priority. The attorney involved in my case made me feel at ease and addressed all of my concerns. I am very satisfied with the outcome of my claim. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone in a similar situation.

I lost my job due to workforce reduction after numerous years of service and was offered a moderate severance package. Paul Schwartzman oversaw the situation and I am very satisfied with the outcome. He was a pleasure to work with, and provided excellent communication updates and guidance. I would highly recommend contacting Samfiru Tumarkin LLP, and specifically Paul Schwartzman, before settling any severance package.

As the VP Finance for the University of Toronto Medical Society, it is important to ensure appropriate accountability and transparency at every level of our operations. Equally important is doing the necessary due diligence when assessing risk. Two separate issues came up that required legal counsel: liability assessment and employee contract negotiations. Samfiru Tumarkin were hired on to represent us after we heard of their expertise. The liability assessment involved the Toronto District School Board and ensuring appropriate risk management for our Community Affairs initiatives. Samfiru Tumarkin handled the legal aspects on our behalf. They demonstrated exceptional knowledge on the particulars of risk and liability. Further, their communication was timely and professional. Employee contracts was another area where Samfiru Tumarkin demonstrated an exceptional ability to guide our negotiations. Information was provided in a clear manner. Our organization was given the necessary information to make decisions that were not only grounded in the required legalities, but also gave sustainable solutions. I recommend Samfiru Tumarkin with no reservations. Their expertise, professionalism and timely communications are qualities that make them a pleasure to work with.

Lauren Berdock [my lawyer] has been exceptional to say the least. Lauren has been very professional, knowledgable, positive, patient and empathetic. She's been an great resource and advisor throughout my dealings with my ex employer. Lauren clearly pointed out the various grounds for our pending lawsuit, highlighting the multiple laws they've broken; and further assuring me of our solid position based on clear undeniable facts, experience and case studies. Samfiru Tumarkin LLP was clearly the right firm to handle my case; and Lauren is certainly one of their best. Lauren is extremely sharp! I have complete confidence in her exceptional acumen, passion for justice and ultimately the final outcome of our case. Thank you Lauren. • • • Lauren Berdock [my lawyer] has been exceptional to say the least. Lauren has been very professional, knowledgable, positive, patient and empathetic.

Before I learned about Samfiru Tumarkin, I was reluctant to reach out to a lawyer to answer my questions and help me understand my rights as an employee. Quite frankly, I didn't know if I could financially afford to do so. But after learning about them, and their business model, I contacted them and became very knowledgeable and confident that I was getting solid and valuable advice. I am extremely happy with the results and I would recommend their services to anyone who is in the position to learn about how to deal with employment issues. Thank you team. • • • Before I learned about Samfiru Tumarkin, I was reluctant to reach out to a lawyer to answer my questions and help me understand my rights as an employee.

I can only describe the experience with Samfiru Tumarkin as one of the best experiences I’ve had with lawyers. He is not only knowledgeable and helpful – this is quite common. He was 24/7 supporting me in a delicate situation and was able to resolve the case to my full satisfaction even exceeding my expectations. THANK YOU Samfiru!!!

From the first conversation I had with Paul S. Schwartzman he made me feel at ease. Going through a hard time of loosing my job, Paul made me feel very comfortable. He was very trusting even when I was panicking. He was quick in responding to my questions, realistic and knowledgeable. I will recommend Paul and the firm to anyone who I know may have problems with their employment. They made my transition easier. Thank you Paul for such a great service and a job well done. • • • From the first conversation I had with Paul S. Schwartzman he made me feel at ease.

After 20 years of service I lost my job because of company's restructuring. I consulted a few law firms about my case everyone had different perception, advice and of course service fee. I choose Samfiru Tumarkin because the Lawyer I spoke to Paul Schwartzman who wasn't only knowledgeable but also understands where I am coming from. He laid all the facts and worst scenario that could happen. Paul provided me an outstanding service that a client could wish for to a lawyer. Great result! Fast! very friendly and helpful staff's and to top it all reasonable fee. Thanks Paul and more power to your team! • • • After 20 years of service I lost my job because of company's restructuring.

I lost my job after 7 years of service, the company offered me a basic package. I am thankful to my friend who introduced me to Lumi Pungea. She is very knowledgeable professional. She explained all the scenarios and helped me get the best compensation. I will always recommend them to my friends.

Endorsement from Janet Donnelly In March 2008, I suffered a serious slip and fall accident and broke Lumbar 1 in my back. This occurred in what is called the common area of my townhouse development. The result of this accident was that I was unable to work for a number of months. I engaged Sivan Tumarkin as my solicitor who immediately came to my home for the initial consultation. In fact, because of my lack of mobility made all home visits to accommodate my needs. Through his and his firm’s expertise and skill when my case reached the arbitration stage, I felt confident and secure that the process would be done with compassion, sensitivity and with integrity. Indeed it was. Slip and fall cases are very difficult in terms of determination of degree of fault, but in my case the evidence presented skillfully by Sivan Tumarkin concluded that the fault lay predominantly with the defendant and my fault was negligible and the suit settled very well. Although this was a very difficult and upsetting time in my life both physically and emotionally, the proficiency and competency coupled with care and compassion for me and my family demonstrated by Sivan Tumarkin and his colleagues was I believe, exemplary. I have no hesitation in recommending and endorsing his firm. They are ultimate professionals. • • • Endorsement from Janet Donnelly In March 2008, I suffered a serious slip and fall accident and broke Lumbar 1 in my back.

My recent experience was extremely positive and comforting. From the very beginning Lia Preyde kept me at ease. She took the time to review my information before providing me my options and was up front and realistic about any expectations. This transparent process allowed for me to trust that she was leading with the best of intentions while still knowing that I was making the ultimate decisions about my particular situation. I do not hesitate to recommend her for anyone looking to understand thier optons and moving forward for successful results. • • • My recent experience was extremely positive and comforting.

My experience with Samfiru Tumarkin was fabulous. Paul Schwartzman is a wonderful lawyer and his work on my file was the best I could possibly ask for. Right from the first consultation, he spelled out all my options clearly and advised me on what he thought the proper course of action should be. In every instance he was right on the mark. But more than that, he was a pleasure to talk with, both over the phone and by email. At one time, when I was less than certain, he reassured me and guided us to a successful conclusion. I would highly recommend Paul for any labour-related problem you are having. I could not have found a better legal representative. • • • My experience with Samfiru Tumarkin was fabulous.

Throughout my process with Samfiru Tumarkin LLP, I found Sivan and his team are highly resourceful and educated when it came to the field of injury law and negligence claims. His years of experience were evident when he guided me through the entire process. During the entire process, Sivans number one priority was my well-being and was very supportive of my needs. He is also relentless and persistent when it comes to negotiating, and will not quit until the most optimal solution is reached. I found it very important that Sivan was passionate about his work, and his attitude and work ethic relieved much of my anxiety in a stressful situation. I would highly recommend Sivan (Samfiru Tumarkin LLP) to anyone involved in an injury claim. He is highly motivated, loves his job and will get you every penny that you deserve!

At a young age I was forced to sue my insurance company based on the denial of a claim and I was referred to Sivan Tumarkin. During the whole process he gave me comfort knowing I was in good hands. Not only did he win the case, it was fast and I was extremely happy with the settlement. Most importantly he was very detailed and explained every step of the way to me. I learned a lot from this process and i'm proud to say it made me a stronger person knowing I can handle "corporate bullies" I have and will continue to refer Samfiru Tumarkin LLP Justin Miandro • • • At a young age I was forced to sue my insurance company based on the denial of a claim and I was referred to Sivan Tumarkin.

I had the pleasure of working with Lauren Berdock for my recently settled case. Lauren made it easy to be honest and comfortable and I was very comfortable with her. She was always quick to respond to emails and phone calls, even around the holidays. Even during the down time of mediation, when there was little to do while waiting in a meeting room, she gave her attention to me while I'm sure she had many other pressing things to do. I hope I'm not in a situation to need an employment lawyer's services again, but should the need arise, I would absolutely be asking for Lauren to represent me again. • • • I had the pleasure of working with Lauren Berdock for my recently settled case.

I’m SPEECHLESS! My initial interaction with Mr. Kler I was given the satisfaction that I was needing from day one, a need that was not fulfilled by one of the attorneys that I had hired prior to represent me. I was repeatedly told by this individual that I had no case, and that the chances for my claim to be accepted are slim to none. This is the last that one would like to hear from an attorney that’s representing you. After letting go of this attorney, I proceeded to Mr. Kler and he genuinely took on my case. The second meeting was another step towards the assurance that I needed, and most definitively received. Mr. Kler is incredibly knowledgeable and accommodating. An individual who was extremely prompt in all correspondence, but most importantly kept me informed every step of the way. Mr. Kler, most definitely, valued, respected and represented me to his fullest capability. Never once did I hear from Mr. Kler that my case was void after a discussion of facts, but was advised that I need not to worry, and from this point forward to leave all in his hands. That I did, and now am forever grateful THANK YOU MR. KLER, • • • I’m SPEECHLESS!

I was fortunate enough to have Sivan Tumarkin from Samfiru Tumarkin LLP represent me in a legal case which evolved over the past two years. With Sivan's vast experience and professionalism in personal injury cases, I was able to settle the court case to my satisfaction. Sivan and his team was always available to answer my questions, were attentive to the many steps involved and I always felt I was being taken care - and in my best interest. My husband also has had Lior Samfiru represent him in a labour issue and a family conflict, and again, his experience with Lior was exceptional. Lior acted quickly and in a timely fashion to find the solution that best suited each situation. I would highly recommend this firm for any legal issues that may arise, including personal injury and labour related conflicts. They are the best. • • • I was fortunate enough to have Sivan Tumarkin from Samfiru Tumarkin LLP represent me in a legal case which evolved over the past two years.

From the first day we met Sivan we knew we were at the right place. He treated us with dignity and respect. He listened to us and addressed any questions or concerns we had. Its nice to know these days that we were dealing with someone very competent, not to mention the great team he had working with him, Melanie, Mathew and the rest of his staff. Thanks again Samfiru Tumarkin, I would not hesitate to recommend this firm to anyone.

Throughout my employment life I have always been one to say "yes" to my employer(s) and finally, I decided to say "no" to a transfer of job position just once to my employer of four years, on what I felt is best for my own physical and mental well-being. The refusal resulted in my loss of employment with the company. I am a low-income guy living paycheck to paycheck and the loss of employment was devastating to say the least. I heard the Employment Hour on the radio and sent an email just to see if what happened to me is fair and/or legal, and having no money to hire a lawyer was there anything I could do? Initially I was hesitant but to my surprise, I was greeted with utmost professionalism and understanding from the getgo. And, I received an email promptly asking if a telephone consultation could be arranged to discuss what rights I have and whether or not there was anything Samfiru Tumakin could do to asist me. That's when my mind was first put at ease and I spoke to Lauren Berdock. My case was not about huge amounts of money at all, it was about principal and about treating good employees with understanding, decency and with the respect that they treated their employer throughtout the years those same years of service. Lauren Berdock [my lawyer] was more than I ever expected. My fear was that because my case was such a small dollar amount that it would be treated of lessor importance and not once did I ever feel this was the case. Lauren called me on several ocassions clearly pointed out the various grounds for our pending lawsuit, and assured me we had a solid position based on clear undeniable facts, experience and case studies. In all honesty, I wish my position with the company was never changed in the first place as I thoroughly enjoyed what I did, but I am thankful there is a professional organization like Samfiru Tumarkin available to the average working guy like me. And, that they employ great people like Lauren Berdock, she is definitely a lawyer of choice for me.

It was a delight to have Paul Schwartzman represent me as my lawyer this past week. I was involved in a mediation meeting for the first time and was some what apprehensive. Paul always made a special effort to explain what the mediation experience would entail before and during the mediating session which made me feel at ease. Paul never shies away from the challenge on taking on new cases and is a real go getter. I was very pleased with the results of the mediation and settled for more than I had envisioned. Paul is a lawyer that will work hard for you and always put forth his best efforts. He always treated me with the utmost respect. I would highly recommend Paul! • • • It was a delight to have Paul Schwartzman represent me as my lawyer this past week.

I listen to radio program Employment Hour on AM640. It is very informative, I learned a lot. So, when I was let go from my job, I knew that the 2 weeks of severance, I was given, was not even close to what I was entitled to receive. I decided to go with somebody who had solid experience in employment laws. It proved to be the best decision in my life. My lawyer was good. She was intelligent fighter. I ended up with many months of severance. My lawyer's fees and my medical expenses were all paid by my former employer. Thank you Mr. Lior Samfiru. • • • I listen to radio program Employment Hour on AM640. It is very informative, I learned a lot.

After being dismissed from my job of 19 years my company offered me a basic package. I contacted a few firms and was intimidated by what sounded like an complicated and expensive process.

I was working as IT Security Analyst for an international company in Toronto and hired Lumi Pungea from Samfiru and Tumarkin Law Offices to review my termination severance package. Working with Lumi Pungea, was a great experience. Initially as with all things unknown, there was trepidation on my part but Lumi was understanding and treated me and my case with the utmost respect and attention. Her professionalism, experience and personal touch made the whole journey a positive one and taught me a lot about what I actually did not know or understand about employment law. I was very pleased with our working relationship and the outcome. Hiring Lumi Pungea from Samfiru and Tumarkin Law Office was the best decision and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for an excellent employment lawyer. Sorin

I contacted Samfiru Tumarkin Employment lawyers on a referral from my brother. I was going through a very difficult time in my life having had my job suddenly terminated by a long term employer whom I trusted and thought valued my dedication and hard work. They responded to my inquiry promptly and right from my first consultation I found my contact, Alex, to be reassuring, knowledgeable and professional. He explained to me what all my options were, patiently answered all my questions and talked me through the process that would happen if I chose to proceed with their services. Having suddenly found myself unemployed after working for over 28 years, I was in a tailspin. Alex, who handled my case, helped to calm me down, assure me that I was not alone in facing this situation and made sure I understood and was OK with each step as we proceeded. I would highly recommend Samfiru Tumarkin Employment Lawyers if you find yourself in a similar situation. They made a very emotional, difficult situation much easier to get through.

I lost my job due to workforce reduction after numerous years of service and was offered a moderate severance package. Paul Schwartzman oversaw the situation and I am very satisfied with the outcome. He was a pleasure to work with, and provided excellent communication updates and guidance. I would highly recommend contacting Samfiru Tumarkin LLP, and specifically Paul Schwartzman, before settling any severance package.

Lauren Berdock [my lawyer] has been exceptional to say the least. Lauren has been very professional, knowledgable, positive, patient and empathetic. She's been an great resource and advisor throughout my dealings with my ex employer. Lauren clearly pointed out the various grounds for our pending lawsuit, highlighting the multiple laws they've broken; and further assuring me of our solid position based on clear undeniable facts, experience and case studies. Samfiru Tumarkin LLP was clearly the right firm to handle my case; and Lauren is certainly one of their best. Lauren is extremely sharp! I have complete confidence in her exceptional acumen, passion for justice and ultimately the final outcome of our case. Thank you Lauren.

My recent experience was extremely positive and comforting. From the very beginning Lia Preyde kept me at ease. She took the time to review my information before providing me my options and was up front and realistic about any expectations. This transparent process allowed for me to trust that she was leading with the best of intentions while still knowing that I was making the ultimate decisions about my particular situation. I do not hesitate to recommend her for anyone looking to understand thier optons and moving forward for successful results.

Throughout my employment life I have always been one to say "yes" to my employer(s) and finally, I decided to say "no" to a transfer of job position just once to my employer of four years, on what I felt is best for my own physical and mental well-being. The refusal resulted in my loss of employment with the company. I am a low-income guy living paycheck to paycheck and the loss of employment was devastating to say the least. I heard the Employment Hour on the radio and sent an email just to see if what happened to me is fair and/or legal, and having no money to hire a lawyer was there anything I could do? Initially I was hesitant but to my surprise, I was greeted with utmost professionalism and understanding from the getgo. And, I received an email promptly asking if a telephone consultation could be arranged to discuss what rights I have and whether or not there was anything Samfiru Tumakin could do to asist me. That's when my mind was first put at ease and I spoke to Lauren Berdock. My case was not about huge amounts of money at all, it was about principal and about treating good employees with understanding, decency and with the respect that they treated their employer throughtout the years those same years of service. Lauren Berdock [my lawyer] was more than I ever expected. My fear was that because my case was such a small dollar amount that it would be treated of lessor importance and not once did I ever feel this was the case. Lauren called me on several ocassions clearly pointed out the various grounds for our pending lawsuit, and assured me we had a solid position based on clear undeniable facts, experience and case studies. In all honesty, I wish my position with the company was never changed in the first place as I thoroughly enjoyed what I did, but I am thankful there is a professional organization like Samfiru Tumarkin available to the average working guy like me. And, that they employ great people like Lauren Berdock, she is definitely a lawyer of choice for me. Thank you
