Employee Reviews

My case was handled with great professionalism and care, and most importantly, no issue was left out.  Everything was discussed, updated and well-prepared ahead of time.  I would strongly recommend David… just one more thing I forgot to mention… I got a great result! Great job, David.

I had filed a complaint against my employer for terminating me just after I announced my pregnancy. In response, my employer hired a high-priced firm to defend them. It appeared that my matter simply wasn’t moving forward, until I contacted David Ertl. David took hold of my matter and convinced the employer to settle. I could not have done it without him.”

Dave, you took what was a very stressful time in my life and gave me hope and guidance.  I knew you were the right lawyer for me when I first spoke with you. You were the only lawyer that told me to interview at least two other lawyers before deciding on a lawyer.  The other two lawyers pressured me to come in and see them.  You’re a credit to your profession.

– D.A., Whitby, ON, 52-years-old, Advertising Sales Professional


Dave, you honestly rock! I am so happy I chose you as my lawyer.  You got me the settlement I was looking for while making the process as easy on me as possible, financially and emotionally.  I really do appreciate all you did for me.

– B.P., Milton, ON, 32-years-old, Human Resources Professional, Hotel Supply



David was the only lawyer that I called that didn’t use hard sell tactics to get me as a client.  In fact, he advised me to interview a bunch of lawyers.  I came back to him.  He got me a great severance package.  There was no question he was the best choice.

– E.G., Hamilton, ON, 51-years-old, Sales Manager


I was terminated on the same day along with a fellow worker. I chose David.  My co-worker chose another well-known lawyer.  Compared to my friend’s results, David charged less and got me more severance.  You can’t argue with results.  Awesome job.  Thanks, David.

– S.K., Milton, ON, 46-years-old, Financial serviceS


David, my husband and I would like to thank you for all of your hard work and guidance through this.  My husband was so impressed with your negotiation skills and cool head through the mediation.

– G.V., Niagara falls, ON, 56-years-old, sales

David assisted me in an extremely personable, consistently professional, and reliable and punctual manner.  David is an extremely results-oriented professional.  I will be happy to refer David to any individual requiring his professional services.

– D.O., Toronto, ON, 57-Years-Old, Executive Director in LOng-Term Care Industry

I only worked for my employer for 2 years, but David negotiated a severance package that got me more than I expected, and their fees were very reasonable. My ex-employer is a large company and has a history of grinding its employees. They tried to play hardball, and that was a big mistake. David is not intimidated by any lawyer. He is confident and cares about their clients. Thanks David!

– S.B., Pickering, ON, 51-years-old, Sales Manager


I was terminated as soon as I returned from my pregnancy leave after my first child. My employer said it was a “restructuring” which was b.s. Ertl Lawyers was the first to return my call and to take the time to listen to my side of the story. David put together a winning strategy so I did not have to go back to that employer, and got me a great severance package. This was all done without filing a lawsuit. I recommended David highly.”

– P.G., Mississauga, ON, 34-years-old, Orthodontic Field


I’d like to express my sincere gratitude for all the effort that both Andrea and David put into reaching an amicable settlement for me. This will be of great help for me and my family, and we could not have accomplished this without your direction and guidance. All the best in your future endeavors, and I wish you future success so that you can continue to help other workers like me. I will be sure to refer your firm to any of my friends if they ever require any assistance.

“Thank you all so much David for your professionalism and hard work you did on my case. Your compassion and understanding and time are greatly appreciated especially at a time when many dental hygienists in Ontario are struggling with employment issues. I was very impressed at how you took the time to advise and comfort me during a very stressful time in my life. David you are a wonderful lawyer and I would recommend you to anyone in need.

– V.L., Mississauga, ON, 39-years-old, Dental Hygienist


David uniquely understands the problems faced by older workers. Their knowledge in this area is outstanding and it convinced the other side to settle quickly!

– J.N., Ajax, ON, 59-years-old, Pharmaceutical Industry

As president of a major firm, I engaged David services through a mutual acquaintance. He was able to find a loophole in the contract of employment that two other lawyers missed. It made all the difference. David was able to negotiate an outstanding severance package, including removal of onerous post-termination provisions. Thanks so much David.”

– V.G., Oakville, ON, 59-years-old, President of Engineering Firm

David is an outstanding employment lawyer who provides practical advice and guidance to Their clients. Their ability to communicate legal matters, calmly and professionally during times of need is commendable and I absolutely recommend their services to anyone.

– M.L., Toronto, ON, 53-years-old, Vice President, Insurance Industry



My employer terminated me and offered me a low-ball severance package. After speaking with David Ertl at Ertl Lawyers I immediately felt confident that he would be able to get me a severance package more in line with what I deserve. David was able to exceed my expectations. He was professional and kind throughout the whole process and I couldn’t recommend Ertl Law more.

– P.G., Toronto


Thanks for all of your help David. I am very happy with the results of my case. It was clear to me that you were far more prepared than the other side when it came time to negotiate for a fair severance package!”

– T.R., Oakville, ON, 61-years-old, Legal Industry



As an older employee, I was devastated when my job was outsourced. The other side made me a lowball offer. In the end, David got me 22 months of severance. He knows their stuff and doesn’t back down. Thanks so much David.

– E.S., Brampton, ON, 58-years-old, Shipper/Supervisor, Electronics Warehousing


I wanted to Thank You for all of your help, support and professionalism with my case.  I never thought in a million years I would have been going through this situation but sometimes in life there is no exceptions, but I am glad that I had the best person and team alongside during this transition.  I will gladly recommend your services to anyone that may ever need it.  Thank you again for your help.

– T.I., Bradford, ON, 45-years-old, Program Administrator


Thank you so very much for all the work you have done and the so pleasing results.  You made this your battle and you won! Thank you.  You have been excellent with us: clear, supportive and helpful, not to mention a determined and assertive desire to succeed.

– M.A., PICKERING, ON, 63-years-old, Media Analyst



My role of seven years was eliminated due to an organizational restructuring.  Referred to David through a mutual contact, I was immediately set at ease during our first conversation and, through his skills, experience and approach, he confidently guided me to achieve the optimal result for my situation.

– S.F., OTTAWA, ON, 42-years-old, public affairs advisor


David Ertl gave me the best advice when it came to my severance package.  I had been working at the same tech company for almost my entire career when I was restructured out.  David was knowledgeable, professional and honest with me about my entitlements.  I highly recommend Ertl Lawyers.

– C.L., Pickering


After dedicating so much of my working life to my employer, I was blindsided when I was replaced by someone half my age.  My employer gave me a low ball offer.  David fought for me and got me 16 months’ severance!

– k.G., LONDON, ON, 49-years-old, Transportation executive



I lost my job after 8 years of service for a reason that I though was unfair.  I hired David Ertl in hopes that I could get help.  I never thought there was a lawyer out there that is so honest and supportive.  As I went through the process, he opened my eyes to see that not all lawyers make it about money; he cared.  He gave great advice to bring my case to a quick and reasonable settlement.  All lawyers should take a page out of your book when it comes to dealing with people.

– L.F., Markham, ON, 43-years-old, Marketing & “Rewards” Industry


I was so happy to find Ertl Lawyers.  After my work terminated me for cause for something that I didn’t do I thought I was going to be out of luck trying to get a severance package.  After speaking with Ertl Lawyers, I had hope.  The team at Ertl Lawyers got me a severance package and I cannot recommend them enough.

– H.P, MIssissauga


My employer placed me on a phony performance improvement plan and then tried to fire me with no severance.  Ms. Noorafkan did a great job working on my case.  The team at Ertl Lawyers kept me informed throughout every step and she was able to get a great severance package for me.

– H.G., Hamilton



You can trust Mr. Ertl to go the extra mile on whatever he does.  I was dismissed from my senior-level job in the IT industry after just 4 months.  Mr. Ertl was able to negotiate a package for me that was far beyond what I expected, and without even having to start a lawsuit.

– K.B., Richmond Hill, ON, 54-years-old, Information Technology Management


I am so glad that I chose David to represent me in my wrongful dismissal matter.  He kept me well-informed along the way and managed to get me an excellent severance package.  I hope that I won’t need another employment lawyer, but if I do, I would choose David without question.

– H.C, Barrie, ON, 34-years-old, Account Executive, Advertising


After being harassed at work for months and having no luck with HR I didn’t know what to do.  After researching employment law firms, I found Ertl Lawyers.  After speaking with Linda, I was confident she would be able to help me.  I was able to get a great severance package and I couldn’t be happier.
