What Others Say


Very proactive and understanding

Very proactive and understanding

I had a need to retain the services of a lawyer for a personal legal matter. As I worked at Miller Thomson at the time, in the IT department, I had knowledge of several lawyers I could have worked with but I chose Stuart because I felt that he had integrity and a sense of what is right and what is wrong. In the course of working with him on my legal issue over the next year, I found him to be very proactive and understanding of my issues in this matter. He handled everything with professionalism and class. I would, and have, highly recommended him to anyone that is in need of any legal advice or the services of a litigation lawyer.

Effective and Creative Mediator

Stuart was an effective and creative mediator and was able to obtain a resolution in a situation that was difficult for the parties. I recommend Stuart to others as he was also a pleasure to deal with and worked well with my client.
