I have no experience to face a lawyer to ask for help, if I do need a lawyer, the best lawyer is a must. I spent a few hours to search a good lawyer online, Charles Osuji attracts my eyes. We did a video meeting first, I thought a big lawyer would be on the high ropes, on the contrary, he is approachable, kind, with good manners, his eyes light up with wisdom, his consultation gets to the point sharply. the short meeting with him, and my heart located back to the right position. His assistant Calista is amiable and talented, we can say: like a boss like an employee. In the court, the case was done beautifully. it bright my day, bright my family! I gave myself a good comment that to chose Mr. Osuji, and will come back to him whenever I need. I like any word Charles said, one sentence will live in my heart forever. He said: "In life, it is less about what happens to us but more about what we do about it"

I was wrongly dismissed at my job recently. I contacted Osuji & Smith lawyers, Charles Osuji responded promptly, patiently listened to my story and offered very useful legal advise. Throughout the period of negotiations, he guided me and I got my compensation. The most amazing thing is that he made time to answer my emails without any delays. I will recommend Osuiji & Smith lawyers to any client who desires high quality and honest legal representation.

As someone who has now engaged employment lawyers both as in-house counsel and recently for myself personally in Canada, I state categorically that Charles Osuji and Claire Lee of Osuji & Smith are among the best employment lawyers in Canada! Charles and Claire are compassionate, kind, honest and extremely good at what they do. They gave me great advice and guided me all through my matter that ensured complete success. If you have an employment dispute on either side of the matter, I advise you to give Charles Osuji a call! You will not regret it as he will get you to the best possible outcome for you based on the facts and your circumstances because of his honesty, compassion, kindness and expertise. Thank you Charles and Claire!
