Delivering Excellence in Everything She Does

As a partner at Whitten and Lublin, Simone Ostrowski, is an employment lawyer and litigator, who demands excellence. Consequently, clients can expect outstanding service, great communication, and smart strategy every time.

This high achiever has been described by clients as patient, caring and professional. As a litigator, Simone has been characterized as  poised, confident and unflappable.  Recognized for her quick thinking and sharp mind, she aggressively pursues her strategy, often demolishing her opponent’s case, to ensure the best outcome for her client.

Simone assists both employees and employers with both union and non-union workplace matters. Her expertise includes wrongful/constructive dismissal claims, separation packages, harassment and human rights claims, occupational health and safety laws, employment contracts, executive compensation, workplace policies, training and compliance, unionized workplace disputes, unfair labour practice allegations, grievance arbitration, accommodations, and workplace violence. 

While Simone’s highly skilled in all areas of employment law, her desire to protect people when they are at their most vulnerable has influenced her specific interest in Human Rights law. This focus has led her to appear as a speaker on panels involving human rights law as well as receiving awards in this area.

In Simone’s free time, she enjoys long-distance running, and getting outdoors to hike, bike and ski.

Our impact.

Ms. Simone Ostrowski of Whitten & Lublin law firm took my case involving human rights and vaccine mandates against my former employer. Typically, my company used suspension as the stick to force Covid vaccine compliance. Disobedience to this coercion, even for religious conscience or medical reasons, could bring about indefinite suspension. Knowing they were preparing to suspend me, I retained the services of Simone Ostrowsky. Ms. Ostrowsky explained the law and my human rights which were being violated by my employer at that time. She obtained a settlement with my former company which would otherwise not have happened had I accepted their decision to suspend me without pay or benefits. I had never used a lawyer before nor had conflicts with an employer. They had a lot of good reviews so I went with Whitten & Lublin. It was ultimately a great decision!! Thank you Simone for your great work and quickly bringing about a great settlement.
