We have dealt, personally, both with Eric Swan and Jill Edwards, during the past 2 years and find them to be respectable attorneys who run the firm with integrity and skill."

Lawyer’s fees can be quite expensive, but the MacDonald & Swan group has always been forthright with costs and hours billed, and made payment arrangements easy to understand. We also found their office group to be equally compassionate, helpful, courteous and consistently ready to help whenever possible. We are happy to recommend them to anyone seeking legal counsel." — D. and M. H. (Oakville, ON)

"All the legal aspects of this case were like a foreign language to us and you and your staff helped us feel more comfortable in every way. The outcome was close to what we expected and was realistic. We were well prepared for mediation and truly admired the way you and the mediator worked to achieve the best outcome for M. In the years leading up to the settlement, your staff was always available to make suggestions and keep accurate records of all the information. You especially made M feel comfortable with you and come to value your advice as he became less angry about his condition and more willing to accept a more reasonable settlement. You were honest about outlining the various fees and never set any actual amount until we came closer to mediation. I would recommend your services without any reservation. Thank you for helping our family through these trying times."— A. H. (Carlisle, Ontario)
"I would like to say first that Heather in your front reception is such as an incredible asset. Going into a law office can be a little intimidating. She is such a friendly and outgoing person. She puts everyone at ease right away. I felt very comfortable with Jill, Valya and yourself. Given the circumstances with my injury being from 1998, I was extremely pleased with the outcome. I was always kept well informed and Jill explained everything to me so that I was sure to understand the proceedings and exactly what was happening. Any questions I had were always answered promptly and sometimes had to be repeated to me more than once. I appreciated everyone's patience with me. I was nervous about having to switch lawyers in the last trimester of my case, but both Jill and yourself assured me that nothing would change and you would be able to step right in. Well, that was definitely proven beyond a doubt! The outcome of hard work from everyone, resulting in our win was the proof in the pudding. I will always appreciate all of the help, hard work, patience and belief in me. I will not hesitate to recommend your firm for anyone in need of good legal counsel and representation." — P. A. (Oakville, Ontario)

I had never previously needed representation by a lawyer and didn't know what to do. I contacted MacDonald & Swan and right from the beginning, they were clear and concise in their direction to me. They took the burden from my shoulders and were with me through every step of the legal process. Because of their professionalism and in-dept knowledge, I was able to successfully settle very quickly and with extremely good results.

"Thank you for the opportunity to express our assessment of the services provided by you and staff at MacDonald & Swan. I was hoping to send a letter of appreciation in due course. As I had mentioned upon first meeting you, we were referred to your firm by a lawyer friend of my cousin. The referral was based on your specialty of insurance litigation and praise for the treatment your firm provides clients. This recommendation was right on the mark and fit our needs so much. M and my wife were going through so much stress and anxiety, at the time, over M's health and the whole ordeal with the insurance coverage deprivation, M was experiencing. At first I thought going to Oakville for legal advice, was so out of the way, however after the first meeting with you and your staff, we knew it was the right decision. We could all feel the true concern, compassion and interest in M's story. You allowed her to provide her complete story and feelings she had gone through. It was so comforting to realize that you listened to all the facts and did not rush M in her review. You provided a very clear and complete assessment of your take on this case. As we moved forward and agreed to proceed with your legal representation, you again gave comfort to M. You told her just think about getting better and let you do the worrying about dealing with the insurance companies. You were so kind and reassuring to M and my wife and I. It was also a nice touch to introduce Valya, your legal assistant, who would later be so involved and helpful to M as well, when she was under the weather. Your firm went into action immediately with a series of letters to treating physicians and the insurance companies. We were provided copies of all correspondence which kept us in the picture. The final results were gratifying to us. It was a huge weight off M's mind. Short term was quickly reassessed in M's favour. Your later explanation about accepting the offer by the insurance company, just after filing the claim, made sense. We relied heavily on your experience and judgement in these matters. We had complete confidence in your opinion. As I mentioned to you, we would definitely recommend you and the firm to any of our friends or acquaintances. Your obvious care and concern in such insurance litigations, is comforting and important as well. Thank you for your representation in this matter." — M. O.
"It is a pleasure to provide some feedback with respect to my personal injury case which was handled by Eric Swan of MacDonald & Swan. Suing another party can be a long and hasty experience and therefore is not a course of action taken lightly and without considerable thought. After consulting with several litigation lawyers, I chose Mr. Swan to represent me. I described the details of my motor vehicle accident after which he and I determined that we had a valid case to pursue. At all times, I was kept apprised of each step of my ongoing lawsuit. If there were options to discuss, then Mr. Swan would present these to me clearly and succinctly. Prior to the mediation and Discovery meetings Mr. Swan spent many hours preparing my wife and me for these two crucial engagements, covering the various points and questions that might be raised. Law is guided by procedure and as such, I was more than satisfied with our lawsuit, given the monetary limits of our case. However, I felt that Mr. Swan was totally committed to obtaining the very best outcome. In closing, I would add that the service provided by Mr. Swan was excellent and that he is a valuable credit to his noble profession." — G. H.
"F and I are very pleased with the results achieved from our case. We both felt that right from the start your staff were very courteous, understanding and caring in all aspects of our case.

The general atmosphere of your office and staff is very friendly and they are willing to go the extra mile in all aspects of the case. We would also like to thank Maureen Ward and Heather Hingley throughout this case. They were always there for us either by phone or in person. We were also pleased that Eric was able to close this case so quickly for us. Thanks again everybody for being there for us. It was greatly appreciated." — C. R. (Niagara Falls, Ontario)

For this reason I am glad that we secured your services. Please accept our thanks and appreciation for leading us successfully through "legal land." — K. and M. (Burlington, ON)
