It was an absolute pleasure meeting and working with Simone! Started with a very pleasant online experience with Sharon... who answered my questions through a virtual chat. From there I had very efficient email coordination from Valentina. I needed review of a contract in a very short period of time and both the admin staff and Simone made it happen in a very collaborative and pleasant manner! Simone was able to answer all my questions in a very articulate and case appropriate way. She even agreed to do the changes to the contract to save me time . I would definitely refer anyone to this office based on this, my first experience. Thank you!!read more

I had heard enough radio ads for employment lawyers to know that I shouldn't sign what was given to me when I was laid... off from my job at a large company. I also assumed that any firm that offered free consultation was probably gonna take anybody's business. My fellow colleagues (who also lost their jobs) had signed right away. So, even though I couldn't really afford to spend it during this bad time, I decided to pay for a consultation with Whitten & Lublin. I went for the top tier price consultation and was pleasantly surprised to actually get David Whitten for my consultation.He was easy going, but also to the point and straight up on what he felt I was entitled to and what expectations I had that were not valid. We even cracked a few jokes. He came up with a game plan and handed me to off to another lawyer in the firm and gave me a great rate.This was the best decision I made. Thanks to David and Simone I was able to get compensation that I was satisfied with and much more than I if I had not obtained their services.I should also add that I'm pretty sure when it comes to clientele I was probably on the lower end of job title/status, but I felt like I got treated like a CEO and no different than any other client would have been.10/10 Would recommend and use again....hopefully I don't need to :\read more

I was recently in need of a highly experienced employment lawyer to help me with a very challenging, sensitive and... complex contract matter. I was referred to David Whitten by another highly experienced labour lawyer who is a friend and was in conflict with the matter. After a quick intro call with David he immediately had me meet with him in person to go through the challenges I had with my employment contract execution. In our first meeting David took the necessary time to listen and ask the right questions to help better access the situation. By the end of the meeting he was able to define a much better path forward to affect a resolution that both addressed my concerns and was fair. Through the entire journey David was a true professional, firm and very consistent. He always made me feel like my matter was top priority in getting resolved which he achieved. He was able to negotiate a great end result from a very challenging and complex situation and it was done in a timely fashion. Excellent negotiation skills! I have worked in the auto manufacturing sector as a senior executive for many years and have had the opportunity to work with some great employment lawyers. If I had to measure David, I would put him at the top of the class and highly recommend him on any employment legal matter especially if you need a tiger to get it done. Outstanding work David and thank you Jamie for the recommemndation. Terry Campbellread more

I had the pleasure of talking with Tommy Hong at Whitten and Lublin. Tommy was empathetic and genuinely concerned with... what had happened at work. Tommy answered all my questions and was honest in giving me three different options if I wanted to continue on. If I do continue on, I will retain Tommy as my lawyer. Thank you Tommy for helping me. You made me feel better in knowing what my rights are.read more

Whitten and Lublin was recommended to me by a friend and I met with Simone Ostrowski. She was understanding, timely and... professional. It put me at ease to know that Simone was managing what was a very stressful situation. It is absolutely worth every dollar to know your rights, have representation and be fairly compensated when terminated from an employer. I would highly recommend anyone individual seeking legal expertise to enlist the services from Whitten and Lublin.read more

I was very fortunate when I needed the help and advice of a lawyer to receive it from Ryan Watkins. Ryan was... professional in all his dealings with me. He was very organized, experienced and wise but he was far more than that. He was also honest and kind, and very fair even as he defended my interests. He did not take advantage of my situation but instead worked for my good. He is not only a great lawyer but a very fine person and a credit to his firm. I have no hesitation in recommending him and gladly do so.read more

Working with Athan was informative and cleared up all of my concerns without incurring high costs. He was easy to talk... to, answered all of my questions and helped correct the wording on my employer agreement to ensure there were no loopholes. I had contacted 2 lawyers initially to feel out which would be the most helpful and I chose this law firm without regret. I would recommend them to others and would use them again if required.read more

I would highly recommend the Whitten and Lublin employment law firm. Both Daniel Lublin, and Tommy Hong are extremely... knowledgeable, they took the time to gather all the relevant facts, and more importantly, they were empathetic and genuinely interested in helping me.

I was referred to Daniel Lublin by several colleagues. Given the location in a downtown Toronto tower I was expecting... Mr. Lublin to be cold and aloof. To my surprise, he was relaxed and understanding. He quickly reassured me with his knowledge about cases like mine and explained to me in detail what was likely ahead. My confidence was justified as he was able to secure an outcome to my satisfaction.read more

Tommy and entrusting him with my case was an amazing and enlightening experience. Tommy is approachable, knowledgeable, honest, and very empathetic towards his clients; he lifted me up when feeling down and defeated. He explained all my options right from the onset. I am pleased with the results and service I received. Thanks for everything, Tommy!!read more

Whitten and Lublin was recommended to me by a professional acquaintance. My first meeting with Daniel Lublin and... Simone Ostrowski was not as expected for a large Toronto legal firm; the meeting was relaxed, very informative, and I never felt rushed or pressured with respect to time or decisions. I worked with Simone on the specifics of the case, in consultation with Daniel. After working with Simone, I am very happy that she was assigned to my file. Simone was always very prompt, professional, but easy to talk to in her approach, calmly discussing the case specifics in plain understandable language as we went along. She made a very stressful situation manageable. Furthermore, Simone’s work is excellent; I feel that she took the time to understand my particular situation and was able to convey this in her work. I am very happy with the package Daniel and Simone negotiated on my behalf, far better than the package initially offered to me by my ex-employer. The final legal fees came within the initial estimate. Without hesitation I would recommend Whitten and Lublin.read more

We were so glad to have found and chosen Daniel Chodos to represent us on our legal matter. He was very knowledgable,... made the entire legal process understandable and facilitated it in such a way that it went smoothly for us, thanks to his guidance. We appreciated that we always felt listened to and that he was looking after our interests at all times. He was always available to meet with us in person (amazingly!) and we always left feeling better about our situation than when we came in. Daniel answered all of our simple and complex questions with honesty and professionalism. We are more than thankful for how he helped us and got us results.read more

Simone Ostrowski from Whitten & Lublin has been an outstanding lawyer. My case started out pretty simple but grew... involved as time passed by over multiple months. However, Simone has patience and perseverance. She kept at it even with multiple iterations. She got a good result at the end. I am happy with her services so far. If someone needs an effective advocate then Simone would be a great lawyer for your case. Simone, many thanks for your assistance !read more

I strongly recommend David Whitten as an employment lawyer. I have found David very effective, transparent, and easy to... work with. He has helped me reached a fair settlement with my previous employer, starting from a lowball offer. At the start of the engagement David shared with me a realistic assessment of plausible negotiation outcomes as well as the associated risks and costs. We formulated the negotiation strategy and defined the roles each of us will play in the process. At the end David’s firm negotiation resulted in an amicable and satisfactory settlement.read more
