Ms. Swann provided empathetic credible advice throughout all phases of my unplanned departure from my place of employment. In addition, she anticipated the course of events accurately and provided excellent advice on how to achieve optimal outcomes. This ensured an excellent and timely outcome that together meant that I was able to confidently prepare for the next phase of my career. While difficult emotionally, I can unequivocally attest that my situation is greatly improved as a result of Ms. Law's expertise and service.

I have been extremely impressed with Tatha Swann. I was referred to her by a friend, which is lucky because I know how hard it is to find a knowledgeable, experienced, dependable lawyer online. Tatha is all of these things and more - she was friendly, professional, sympathetic, and able to get to the heart of my concerns with my employer within just a few minutes and was incredibly responsive to all my questions and needs - I never had to wait long to get a response from her. You might be convinced that the larger firms will have more to offer but I believe the opposite is true. With Tatha you won't just be another number or account - she will make sure you feel supported and give you expert advice you need to achieve whatever outcome is best for you.

Tatha's years of experience combined with her vast knowledge puts you at an advantage from the beginning. Most importantly she has people skills, empathy being a rare highlight. She will take the time to listen to your story, like really listen, and understand it. She then has the ability to guide you through the process, obtain the factual information that you need, and professionally navigate the legal steps to get you what you deserve. I had initially found her services for a family member, recommended her to friends, and one day had to use her services myself. I learned a lot and cannot recommend her enough. If you would like a more detailed reference, she has the authority to share my information with you.

Not even sure where to start after my employment was suddenly terminated,  I did a quick search and found Swann Law. I filled out the online form requesting information on my options.  I got a reply within the hour and after a few emails we had a quick call to review my options.I hope I don't find myself in this situation again. But if I do I will know who to contact.Even though everything was done by phone and email, it was important to me that I dealt with some local and in my neighbourhood.
