“Exceptional Law Firm: Outstanding Personal Injury Representation. I cannot speak highly enough of the exceptional service provided by the law firm, particularly attorneys Lesly Joseph and Frank Tierney, along with their law clerk, Tara Renaud. They recently represented me in a complex personal injury case, and I am extremely pleased with the outcome they achieved despite the numerous challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. From the very beginning, Lesly Joseph and Frank Tierney demonstrated their expertise and dedication to my case. They took the time to thoroughly understand the intricacies of my situation, providing me with honest and transparent guidance about my options. Throughout the entire process, they were communicative, keeping me informed of any developments and patiently answering any questions or concerns I had. One of the most remarkable aspects of their representation was their unwavering commitment to my case, even amidst the delays caused by the pandemic. The staff was instrumental in ensuring the smooth progress of my case despite the challenges posed by remote working arrangements and court closures. Furthermore, their genuine empathy and compassion throughout the process provided me with a sense of comfort and support during a difficult time in my life. I wholeheartedly recommend this law firm for any personal injury case. Their professionalism, expertise, and commitment to securing the best possible outcome are second to none. I am incredibly grateful for their hard work and dedication in resolving my case, and I am truly satisfied with the result they achieved for me. Thank you to the entire team for a job exceptionally well done.” S.J.— S.J.
Made us feel as though we were their only clients
Worked with Frank and Lesly and their team for almost 6 years. They made us feel as though we were their only clients with the level of service and compassion they provided. If we had any questions, we always got our answers promptly. Their ability to work with someone with an invisible disability, and adapt to that person’s needs, was amazing. Totally recommend this law firm.— D.C.
Smart, competent, personable
My life was completely and permanently altered after a car accident and a resulting traumatic brain injury. To my surprise, my own insurance company tried to break me over and over and over again as did the lawyers for the defendant. Lesly Joseph of TS kept me informed and calm and reassured me when I was about to give up. She always had time for me as did her paralegal. Lesly guided me through the whole process and obtained settlements for me beyond my expectations. And a huge relief was that I did not have to go to trial. Lesly is smart, competent, personable and I highly recommend her. Thanks, Lesly!— K.G.
Competent and efficient
Lesly Joseph and Tara Renaud are very professional and quick to answer questions in a competent and efficient manner. They took the time to reassure me and guide me through the process of my case. They also made sure I received reminders of the next steps and of what was required in order to keep my case ongoing. I would definitely recommend them to anyone needing legal assistance.— R.F.
I couldn’t be happier with this law firm. Professional, discrete, understanding and equitable. I dealt with Lesly Joseph who not only brings her professionalism, discreteness and positive attitude, but an amazing A-game to mediation. She took the time to explain the legal process to me and my family. She was clear on what we could expect from the entire process from start to finish. She prepared us well in advance and was accommodating over the course of the entire process. In the end, she reached a more than fair deal for us. The law firm had a few receptionists and clerks that I dealt with, and all of them were consistent in providing professional service and prompt responses via email, phone and even in person. I would definitely recommend them. Thanks Lesly!— R.S.
I was involved in a MVA 5 ½ years ago. I had no clue what to do after the fact because of my injuries. Someone had referred me to Frank and Lesly to see if they could help me. And I am so grateful I did. They took everything over, were able to get me all in home support, rehab etc. I would not be where I am today if it wasn’t for them. They were always there to answer my questions, time and time again when I couldn’t understand what was happening. Kathy was always answering my emails to help me through all the process. They were always upfront and honest about what to expect, and what they could do to help me. If you are looking for an amazing legal team you have found it with them!— C.M.
My family engaged Tierney Stauffer LLP to handle a case of grave assault on my brother over 6 years ago. At a time where my entire family was engrossed in deep grief, this law firm represented by the duo of Susan Mitchell and Lesly Joseph were absolute rock stars. They guided us throughout, avoiding legal pot holes that could mar our case. As the other party tried to cause unnecessary delays, these lawyers persisted, using calculated pressures as the occasion demanded to press forward.
My family and I are extremely grateful and will always recommend these lawyers to anyone for these reasons:
- They were always within reach to tackle any questions we had about the case.
- Their genuine empathy and understanding of the grief the family was going through…this proved to be extremely important!!!
- Resisted in a subtle manner any attempts to prolong the case unnecessarily.
- Even after a settlement was reached, their long reach to the officers at Health Canada and other institutions helped us negotiate favourable terms.
- Their methodical approach to the entire case gave us a water tight schedule and a good understating of what to expect at each milestone.
- Finally, both Susan Mitchell and Lesly Joseph exhibited great professionalism throughout the case.
