I met with Christie Gilmour after a co-worker recommended Forte Law, and she was well worth every penny. She met with me on an urgent basis during an extremely tumultuous time. She was professional but sensitive to my needs. Which were, that despite not wanting to end my employment due to financial reasons, my work environment was a detriment to my mental health. I was starting to have panic attacks whenever I received any work related communications. Christie reviewed all my previous communications with my employer and offered me two affordable options of moving forward. She drafted a letter for me to forward to my employer that ended up getting me a substantial severance package and additional support during job transition. I am in a great financial and emotional situation after the termination of my employment with a toxic employer and I owe a huge thank you to Christie for making it happen.

Several months ago my job was eliminated due to restructuring and I was "terminated without cause" and I asked for recommendations on an employment lawyer and Sara Forte was one of the names put forward. Just want to let you all know I have now settled and am pleased with the outcome. I found Sara to be very knowledgeable and honest should you ever need an employment lawyer. Have a job interview today so fingers are crossed.

Sara also is kind and compassionate, so her advice fits well with our organization. I would highly recommend Sara as employment counsel for any company looking for employment law advice.

Sara Forte's legal services were very helpful to me. I recently transitioned from a professional employee at a firm to self employment. It was critical for me to understand the obligations I had as an employee to ensure that I was meeting those obligations during my last days at the firm. More importantly, Sara helped me with the strategy of how to inform my former employer of my intentions with the goal of minimizing any negative responses - not an easy task. Thankfully, her strategies worked for me.

Sara Forte's caring and approachable demeanour was very comforting during a challenging time for my family after an unexpected job loss. Sara Forte is extremely knowledgeable in her field and she ensured I was very well informed and understood all of my options. She patiently answered my questions and made sure I felt secure in my decisions before moving forward. I would highly recommend Sara and confidently refer any of my friends and family to her firm.

When things started to go sideways for me at work I didn’t know my rights, I was highly emotional and I was given a lot of terrible advice from well meaning friends and family. I spoke to Sara who had seen my problems many times before. Sara has a calm and direct way of explaining the complexities of the law. I felt more in control of my situation after speaking with her. She explained the outcomes of my actions should I choose to quit, speak up or do nothing. She gave me her legal opinions and reviewed the complicated documents that my employer sent to me. Signing a legal letter from a large corporation is intimidating and scary but Sara’s explanation of the documents made me feel confident. I felt thoroughly supported through a very stressful and emotional time. Having someone in your corner makes all the difference. Now when ever someone tells me their work challenges I always recommend they call Sara. It is always worth consulting with an expert to know your rights. I have referred a number of friends and family to Sara since my personal experience working with her and they have all had the same great experience.

When I encountered an employment issue while living and working in an isolated area of British Columbia, I had very few options for proper counsel. I was lucky enough to be referred to Sara Forte by a close friend and she was beyond accommodating, accessible, and quick to respond, making me feel like a priority. She was able to help me, by phone or email almost same day, every time I requested it. She is intelligent, compassionate, and when I was in desperate need of advice she was there for me. Sara was absolutely out for my best interests and I would recommend her in a heartbeat.
