Rebecca K. and Family

Dear Mr. David MacDonald,

We wanted to extend our most heartfelt appreciation for the care received from you and your associates.

At a most vulnerable and sensitive time, your services provided to us were invaluable. The fragile nature of our circumstances over the past 6 years was seemingly insurmountable. Nothing could have ever prepared me for the challenges brought on by my mother’s traumatic accident. Considering the extent and severity of her injuries, her survival was nothing short of a miracle. As a single mother, and her only child, we have a very deep and strong bond. These devastating life changes left us scattered. We are grateful for your support and guidance in helping us adjust and realign our lives.

Your hard work and diligence, as well as your team’s, including Mr. Ian Furlong and Diane Bregg, eased our emotional strain. Your commitment and attention to our needs softened our grief, and our exhaustion associated with the intricate dealings of the legal system. Your patience and expertise in conveying the details of your efforts on our behalf earned our confidence and trust.
You gave us the opportunity to focus on the gravity of the situation without any distraction.

Though we are glad that these hardships are mostly behind us, we are grateful for your support and partnership during this most difficult time.

Dear Mr. MacDonald,

I am writing to let you know how pleased Jeff and I have been with the way you handled representing Jeff’s settlement with our insurance company.

We found you and your staff to be very approachable. Your explanations, suggestions and genuine concern for Jeff’s current and future well being were conclusive and set out in terms which were easily understood.

Both you and your law clerk Diane Bregg answered our calls and emails promptly. You both were very thorough in arranging a satisfactory settlement. No doubt your expertise in dealing with brain injury victims played an important factor as you dealt with our insuring company.

We thank you sincerely for taking our case and dealing with it so well. We certainly would recommend you and your firm to others facing the issues we did.

Dear Mr. MacDonald:

I am writing to let you know how appreciative I am with the way you handled, represented and supported my husband and our family, especially with respect to obtaining accident benefits from our insurance company.

I found you and your law clerk Diane Bregg very approachable. Both of you answered my calls and emails promptly. The language and culture barriers and so many uncertainties were addressed by your clear explanations, thoughtful suggestions and your expertise in dealing with insurance companies.

I understand my husband has a long way to go but I am very pleased to have been able to help him by retaining you, the very best lawyer, as his legal representative! No doubt your talent in dealing with brain injury victims and your determination to pursue the case will lead to a satisfactory settlement.

Dear Dave,

Mario and I would like to express our sincere thanks to you and the entire team for all you have done.

From the initial meeting at our home, we were confident that you had the knowledge, resources and compassion necessary to represent us. You always made yourself readily available and your advice, encouragement and support helped to guide us through our difficult and emotional journey. By your genuine interest, not only to our file but our lives, you’ve made us feel more like friends than clients.

While there were many people behind the scenes working on the file, Diane Bregg was incredible! Her proficiency and empathy made many a day easier! She was a pleasure to work with.

As we move forward, we appreciate your willingness to allow us to seek your counsel if necessary, and once again, we thank you for bringing our case to a successful conclusion.

Dear Mr. Furlong,

I would like to extend my sincerest gratitude to you and your team for handling my case with the utmost efficiency, professionalism and care. Your expertise and guidance provided me with a sound support system during such a trying time, ultimately allowing me to feel comfort and confidence throughout the mediation process.

Ian, your knowledge of the law, legal process and the individuality of your clients is clearly impeccable. Your consideration and dedication rendered a more than satisfactory settlement during a difficult time following my accident.

It is without hesitation that I would recommend the services of yourself and the Thomson Rogers firm as you are a very diligent, thoughtful and supportive team. Very many thanks to Dianne Bregg who was always ready with an answer to any question! I can’t thank you both for your kindness and support throughout this process.

Best wishes for 2014!
