Testimonials

"I am a commercial landlord with properties in London and other places in Ontario. I first encountered Kevin Egan when he was on the other side of a landlord/tenant dispute in which I was involved. I was impressed by his ability and liked how he handled a rather difficult situation. I decided Kevin would be a good lawyer for me. Since then, I have retained him to act on a number of files. He has more than met my expectations. Together we have resolved several complex matters including a protracted dispute with my fire insurance company with which my previous lawyers had not been successful."

"When I was seriously injured in a truck rollover accident at work, I came to Kevin Egan for help. Kevin stuck with me through several levels of appeals and ultimately won long-term WSIB benefits for me. Kevin understands the system and, more importantly to me, understood me and the difficulties my soft tissue injuries were causing in my daily life. When I was ready to give up, he instilled in me the confidence to stick with it. His successful appeal gave me and my family financial stability we otherwise would not have had."
