We had nothing but nonsense with our bank and the realtor when we tried to by a new house. We were supposedly approved, sold our existing house only to find that we were not approved after the fact. In short, we were now homeless! Keith went to work in getting our money back from all of the costs that we had to spend out of pocket. It was a stressful grind that I wish we could have avoided. Never the less, Keith stayed right on top of it and fought to the finish keeping us well informed every step of the way. I the end we were made whole. At least we got all of our money back. It was a pleasure to work with you Keith and your team at Shaw Legal Service. Many thanks. Enjoy the scotch.

The neighbor’s tree crashed down onto my property damaging my house and landscaping, to which, they refused to pay for. Oh was this a dragged out fight! I was in awe as to the amount of documents and paperwork this matter generated. This went all the way to a three-day trial. Mr. Shaw was very effective in court. So much so that at the end the judge congratulated him on how well I was represented. The majority of my claim was awarded but I have to say, the stress of it all at 72 was too much for me to go through again. Many thanks for a job well done and thanks for sticking with me.

Thanks Keith, I hate going to the LTB. It was such a treat to just hand you the file and you took care of everything without me having to even walk into the place…

Just a few words to let you know how much we have appreciated the invaluable legal advice and services you provided us with over the last 18 months. Last year, we found ourselves to be the victims of a dishonest and unscrupulous contractor, who robbed us of time and money while filled our days with a mix of anger, anxiety and depression…
