    Working with Catherine is a pleasure and even in the most difficult of times, things manage to progress in an orderly and in a sense painless way. "Lets not waste time but get to the root and work it through."

    Leanne Cherry prepared my parents Personal Directive and Enduring Power of Attorney. There were a number of occasions during the following years where we ran into problems with Administrators in the Health Care System. Leanne was an excellent resource, incredibility supportive and an outstanding listener. Her professionalism and empathy eases any worries or concerns a family may have. I continue to recommend Leanne to everyone I know.

    It was a pleasure to work with Jeremy Bolger. He was always prepared, well organized, and his interpersonal skills are excellent. I was very impressed with the manner in which our case was presented - forceful when necessary but otherwise matter of fact statements. His approach was well received by the arbitration judge. He did an exceptional job for us.

    Poor service coupled with unconcerned lawyers other than padding their bill by performing superfluous and unconstructive work. Our Lawyer at BLG needlessly escalated the tension and the potential for generating revenue by making futile legal recommendations and following through with them. These served to distance the two parties and create animosity where previously there was none. Had the BLG lawyer been honest the case could have been settled sooner and at a much lower cost to both parties.

    I engaged this company simply to collect my settlement. Delays, mis-communications and total lack of interest in my case made me extremely frustrated. Instead of ending a 5 year battle, they did as all other lawyers had in the past and made it 6 1/2 and added another layer of costs! To top it off, all efforts were made to accommodate the respondent and his wishes/demands. Was not a divorce as we were not married, but did not find a better option on your list.
