2 1/2 years of exceptional ‘customer service’ from the moment David MacDonald at Thomson Rogers took over my case. I was not ‘just a file or a number’, I was very much a ‘person’, being taken care of and helped along my rehabilitation journey after suffering a Traumatic Brain Injury in a motorcycle accident. Whatever and whoever I needed to get better was promptly put in place, up and running with incredible service providers. Diane Bregg was amazing! My TBI caused incredible anxiety and she was patient yet thorough, explaining everything to me along the way, clarifying any questions I had. Robert Ben provided incredible support during my Examination for Discovery. Thomson Rogers provided me the BEST legal team led by David MacDonald. I will forever be grateful as a year and half later I can afford the people I need as I continue my recovery journey. David, Diane and Robert worked WITH me as opposed to for me and I couldn’t have asked for a better team!

It has been just over 5 years since my accident. David MacDonald and his team that included Robert Ben, Diane Bregg and the rest of Thomson Rogers assistants are beyond competent. They are a compassionate team that fight tooth and nail against the insurance companies to get you the best possible settlement without deepening their pockets and taking from yours. I can honestly say that I made the best decision one year after my accident to dismiss my original lawyer and hire David Macdonald. I was so unhappy with my previous lawyer due to the fact that she was making me feel unjust in my needs and increased my level of depression and lack of purpose. My neuropsychologist suggested that I might want to consider changing lawyers based on the unneeded mental anguish that my previous lawyer was adding to my life especially when the accident wasn’t my fault. When I interviewed three lawyers, my comfort and decision was made in choosing David MacDonald at Thomson Rogers. He has won several awards for civil litigations because he knows what he is doing and is extremely good at what he does. David, Robert or Diane would call me within hours to at most a day to answer any of my questions. They would help clarify and repeat information in layman’s terms for me to understand. I can’t say enough about David Macdonald and Robert Ben. It has been a long and hard road to get to a settlement but I can assure you that you are in very good hands. I highly recommend this team if you need legal counsel for a civil litigation case.

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.

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.
