Reviews For Ryan Watkins
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.
I would highly recommend this firm. I’ve had to work with other lawyers for different things and usually, they seem too distracted to actually care about your case and you have to chase them to get things done. Ryan Watkins was the attorney I worked with and he was patient, thorough and followed through when he said he would. He helped me fight for what I deserved, maintain my dignity, and get through a very stressful event with a satisfying outcome. They are not inexpensive but totally worth every dollar.
At 64 years of age, I was extremely disappointed with the release from my employer and the paltry settlement they offered. I was referred to Whitten & Lublin and I made an appointment to meet with Ryan Watkins. What a relief! What a success ! With his review of all the facts and research of Ontario cases, he initiated a claim and was successful in obtaining an INCREASE in settlement. Many THANKS and appreciation for the thorough, comprehensive and swift resolution of my case with the professional help of Ryan and the Whitten & Lublin support Team!
I found Whitten & Lublin and most importantly Ryan Watkins through conducting a Goolge search. So I understand the importance of taking a moment to give a review for that next person who might need it. W&L contacted me immediately after my initial contact and walked me through the process. When I met with Ryan he put me at ease immediately. What I love about Ryan is he just listened. I was so unsure if I had a case or not and if W&L would represent me. Ryan assured me I had a very strong case and put together a multi level plan. Ryan checked in regularly to see how I was doing and offered me his counsel on how to deal in a hostile work environment. I really appreciated him and his colleague Tommy Junho Hong who ultimately represented me when Ryan was on paternity leave. Tommy was smart and savvy and kept my best interests top of mind. Thank you Ryan and Tommy for helping me find my voice and making sure it was heard!

My wife and I were represented by Ryan Watkins at this firm. Our needs were put first and we were treated as a friends. Our opinions were valued and our doubts were always reassured.

I used Daniel Lublin at Whitten and Lublin to create an employment agreement for myself. Unfortunately my employer terminated me. However, their agreement was airtight. When I was terminated Dan Lublin and Ryan Watkins were with me every step of the way. Fortunately I had the foresight to use a professional to create my agreement and their contract held up. It is great to have specialized professionals on your side and they are bound to think of things that others would not. They are the experts and even on their vacations they both kept in touch with me. I highly recommend them!
I contacted Whitten & Lublin after being served Termination papers at my corporate job as an Account Executive. I had several other lawyer referrals from friends but decide to talk to Whitten & Lublin first after reading their reviews online. The first contact was to pick a lawyer I felt comfortable with, I chose Ryan Watkins due to his level of experience and price per hour. I was a bit nervous going into the consultation meeting but Ryan's easy going nature, knowledge and ability to walk me through all the options made me feel confident he would represent my best interests efficiently. I signed with him at that first meeting! Throughout the negotiation period Ryan did what he promised, follow up and kept me informed but most of all negotiated a deal that I was happy with. My ROI for hiring a lawyer was well worth it! I have recommended Ryan Watkins and Whitten & Lublin to friends and will continue to do so.
Ryan Watkins was the lawyer that I had an initial consultation with at Whitten and Lublin. I wanted to resign from my company but wanted to ensure that I was protected. First, the initial consultation process is great because it ensures that your time is used in the most efficient way possible. While I did not require the full hour, I am certain that the review of documents that was provided prior to the meeting was well deserved and kept my time to a minimum. Ryan Watkins is a very knowledgeable and attentive lawyer. He was able to provide advice and guidance to me that proved to be a very good for my outcome. I particularly liked his style of explaining the options that I had and coaching me to "work it out on my own." Not only that, I also found Ryan very approachable and generally a very likable person. I recommend Whitten and Lublin for your employment law needs and I highly recommend Ryan Watkins.
