 This firm has helped many of our clients navigate some difficult legal matters. Specifically, Patrick Greco has provided excellent service and a couple of huge legal "wins" for condos that we manage, including an important LAT case and another regarding harassment of building staff. I would highly recommend the Shibley Righton legal team.

 I have used this firm for a number of legal matters on several occasions. I have had excellent and prompt legal service. A great team of lawyers, especially in the employment and condo groups.
