I hired Ms Rebecca Young regarding a legal matter in October 2015. I found her and the firm to be very professional and helpful. The whole process took about one year to resolve. I followed her advice and the outcome was in my favour. I would recommend her for her professionalism, knowledge and pleasant attitude.

I.S.

Daniel, thank you for your excellent work. I am pleased with the outcome. I didn't feel 'prosecuted' and I believe that is due to your excellent advocacy skills and rapport with the Court.

A.F.

I was accused by my former employer of interfering and damaging their computer systems. I was charged under the Criminal Code for mischief, unauthorized access and destruction of data, which was a very scary, stressful, and upsetting experience. I thought that my world was over and all the hard work I had done in my life was coming to an end. Mr. Frost's initial consultation (which was no obligation and free of charge) helped a lot to calm my nerves and comfort me and my family in trying times. His team was very understanding, sympathetic, concerned and supporting, she always took my frantic phone calls with calmness and assurance and helped me understand the progress of my case clearly. At every step, I received sound professional advice. At the end of the case, the charges were dropped. As a result, I do not have a criminal record, my reputation is intact, and my current job is still secure. Words cannot truly express my gratitude for having such amazing lawyers. From explaining the terminology used in court, to sitting with me outside the court room when I couldn't hold back my tears, they stood by my side. Thank you for exceeding my expectations, and then some.

J.S.

We were very pleased with Mr. Frost's representation. He provided us with the best possible legal representation. He was dedicated to obtaining a tremendous resolution in what was complex litigation while being always mindful that we required a cost-effective solution.

B.B.

I was charged along with nine other physicians with fraud against OHIP. I was also the subject of a complaint before the College of Physicians and Surgeons arising from the same allegations. I was assigned counsel by the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA). On the advice of a friend who was a Crown Counsel I insisted that I be allowed to retain Mr. Frost. I am very pleased that I was allowed to do so. Mr. Frost (together with Ms. Samantha Peeris) provided me with first class representation. He convinced the Crown to drop the charges against me. His office always kept me informed in a timely fashion of any developments. He clearly understood the impact of these allegations on my professional reputation. Mr. Frost always maintained a very low profile. Mr. Frost went on to represent me before the College of Physicians and Surgeons ensuring that no disciplinary was taken. I continue to practice medicine in my area of expertise.

Dr. C.

I am a healthcare provider with a practice in the Greater Toronto Area, Ontario. I was represented by Mr. Frost before my professional licensing College with respect to a complaint by an insurance company. I was quite concerned that the complaint could affect my professional standing and reputation. Mr. Frost understood what needed to be done. He also understood the impact the complaint was having on me personally. He acted quickly. He was able to convince the College to take no further action. I was relieved that his representation was very low profile and my professional reputation was not undermined with the public or the College. As a result of his representation my status with that particular insurer was regularized.
