Shawn worked with me for over two years, through a very complex and stressful case. He never stopped fighting for me and was always there for me, day or night, to answer my questions or just help me get through the day. I would highly recommend his firm to anyone facing any sort of legal battle. Much better to have him on your side than have to face him from the other side! All his support staff are stellar too, can’t say enough good things about this law firm. Source: LawyerRatingz.com
It was a breath of fresh air working with Mr. Shawn Philbert. He was honest, compassionate, efficient and fair. I wish I had found him sooner, I would have saved so much more time, money and stress. Source: Google Review 5 stars
Stop searching, you have found one of the top lawyers in the GTA. Shawn accomplished more in 3 court meetings than my previous lawyer accomplished in 2 years, and I could not be happier. He is very talented, efficient, professional, prepared, articulate and keeps the opposing council on track, does not waste time on frivolous matters, It was also obvious to me that Shawn is very well respected with the judges in Milton. I have and will continue to recommend Shawn to others without hesitation, and feel very fortunate to have him ON MY SIDE. Source: LawyerRatingz.com
