We hired Mr. Payne to represent us in a wrongful dismissal/breach of contract case. His rates were very reasonable and he explained the process every step of the way. All of the staff was professional, courteous and knowledgeable. After 3 years our case was heard in the Superior Court of Canada. Mr. Payne and his associates were prepared for every possible scenario that the defence could come up with and brought case law for support. It felt like we had a whole team working diligently to secure a favourable judgement. After four days of trial and testimony a large judgement was awarded in our favour. I can’t thank them enough and I would not hesitate to recommend Payne Law & Associates.

Mr. Payne did an exceptional job representing me and winning my case.

Mr. Payne helped our company through 2 very difficult terminations.  The difficulties were largely the result of poorly written contracts, which were based on the advice of an HR specialist.  Mr. Payne then proceeded to rewrite our contract template to protect our company against further loss.  Due to the new templates we have not had to face any further problems when dealing with terminations.  I Would certainly recommend Mr. Payne with Employment Law issues.  Alistair
