What people are saying about Employment Lawyer Maureen Currie
I just wanted to drop you a little note of gratitude. I appreciate you taking on my case, and helping to resolve a very stressful and unpleasant situation for you are a good litigator and tough negotiator when challenged to a bunch of labour lawyers. Hopefully I won’t require your services again, but I would highly recommend you to anybody that does. I also appreciate the fairness and considerations you took, regarding my legal fees yet.

Very responsive and seemed very knowledgeable about my employee issues and contractual approaches. No nonsense and economical. She successfully navigated our company out of a litigious problem with firm professionalism when many lawyers would have been out for their own economic interests. I would recommend her.

Very good lawyer. She had no problem answering my questions and what she told me about what my company would do after receiving her correspondence was exactly right. On only one occasion did I have to wait for her to get back to me for a day and a half and that was because she was in trial. It worked out very well for me thanks to Maureen and I got a lot more severance than was offered. I would definitely use her again.

I required confidential answers on an employment problem I was having. Our firm doesn’t handle this area so I found her on the internet as I did not want a local firm. I was frankly surprised at the rating she was given by her lawyer “peers” relative to the incredible responsiveness and expertise she demonstrated in dealing with me over a two week period. I wouldn’t hesitate to use her again. She is definitely a lawyer’s lawyer.

Maureen was prompt and accessible in assisting me with my needs. She provided a very thorough review of my case to the defendant and we received a prompt settlement which helped me move forward with my life. I have and will continue to recommend Maureen to others who may require her services.

I was unexpectedly terminated from my job and had not needed a lawyer before. I found her through the Gold Book. She is very understanding and was a tough negotiator with my Company. I got almost double what they offered me – without having to go to Court. She was a bit out of the way and inconvenient from Guelph but it was sure worth it.

I was very fortunate to have met Maureen when I was undergoing a workplace harassment situation. She is not only a very competent lawyer but a very personable individual. The outcome was extremely satisfactory. We would highly recommend Maureen. Janice McL

first rate counsel
I used Ms. Currie to address an employment situation for me a few years ago and was extremely impressed with her thoroughness and responsiveness. I ended up with an excellent severence. When our son got in difficulty in a criminal manner, I called her again, given that she also used to be a crown attorney. She is a most professional lawyer. She kept him up to date and responded immediately to any inquiries. His mother and I were very impressed with her handling of the trial. I know she worked very hard at his defence because the night before his trial we had to reach her at midnight and she was still at the office. I believe in letting people know when there is excellent service. Maureen Currie did outstanding work in our opinion.

I was recently terminated from my job of four years and was offered a severance package. Before making a decision whether to accept the severance package I decided to seek legal advice. Based on review ratings on yellowpages, I found Currie Law. Ms. Currie is nothing short of impressive. First, she responded to my phone call personally, and was very patient and down-to-earth and was truly thinking in my best interest. After meeting with her, I was able to get a much clearer picture of the situation and of my options. Ms. Currie was very knowledgeable and experienced. She was professional and objective in offering her advice. She took the time to hear my employment and termination experience, explained to me the basics of employment laws, gave me her takes on the situation, presented me with various options and the pros and cons of each option.
She is nothing short of spectacular and truly has her client’s best interest at heart. Should I need relevant legal advice and/or representation in the future, I would not think twice before contacting Currie Law. She is a model for consulting professionals everywhere.

I’d recommend Maureen Currie any day for employment
I was recently terminated from a job I held for 22 years. I hired Ms. Currie to analyse and negotiate my package. I was worried that a lawyer might just be looking out for their own interest and may misrepresent whether the package was good. I found her to be straight forward, extremely friendly but a no nonsense lawyer. She told me that it was a good package and that if I were to go to court to fight it the lawyers would be the only ones that would win. I appreciated the candor and honesty but believed that after this many years I deserved more than what they offered. I hired her to negotiate a larger package. Thanks to her expertise I ended up with an additional 4.5 months, a longer period of benefits and even money for the loss of my company car. She kept me up to date each step of the way for the month and a half it took to reach agreement and my pay was not stopped in the meantime. I really had a good experience with this firm and recommended my brother in law who was fired last month. He was also impressed. I was bored and looking at the yellow pages tonight and thought if I could help someone else who is worried about a legal problem that it would be a positive thing to do. If all lawyers were as professional as her there wouldn’t have lawyer jokes.

After 17 years with my Company, I was recently terminated from an executive position 1 month before Christmas. I was offered what I thought was a fair package but thought I should have a lawyer review it because of a non compete clause. Didn’t know any employment lawyers but saw this ad among the others. 3 other lawyers didn’t even bother returning my call for days but Maureen called me back personally that night. I was a little doubtful when she told me that she thought she could get me another few months, especially when I didn’t want a dragged out court fight but trusted her judgment. She got me 8.2 more months and made them take out the non compete clause.The communication between her and my company was very professional (much like the lawyer herself). We wrapped it up today, less than a month after my termination and I was paid throughout. Since I know how confusing it is to find a lawyer that is really out for your best interest, I wanted to pay it forward and recommend her. She was sure worth the drive from Mississauga.

I think she is an excellent lawyer.She made me feel comfortable right away and I was very satisfied with her work. It was well worth the money to get 4 more months severance plus the bonus I was entitled to.
