My experience with Shulman was professional and seamless. They helped me with a time sensitive issue and took the time to ensure they addressed my concerns and answered all my questions. I would highly recommend Shulman to anyone looking to retain an excellent family lawyer.
Shulman Law firm has been very instrumental in the success of my family matter. Their input was such that I moved from not almost seeing my son to having custody and to be seeing my son on a shared parenting schedule. They were involved in every stage of the process as if it was their personal matter, with full understanding of the difficulties that I encountered.
My lawyer in the firm Katherine Robinson played a very positive and significant role in dealing with my matter and moving it forward all through - I most appreciate her efforts and the contribution from other lawyers in the firm. I will refer Shulman Law Firm on family issues to anyone who needs such a service.
Both Ron and Katherine were great to work with. They knew exactly what to do and things worked out great. Professional, prompt and friendly made the process less stressful. I would recommend them to anyone who needs this type of service.
During my consultation with Rick, I was very comfortable. He understood my situation and was able to assist in outlining some key factors. After which I had the opportunity to liaise with Daniel whose guidance, advice and support helped eased some of the weight to some degree. As we know, family matters can be painful and stressful so it makes the situation less of a burden when you know that you are in the hands of competent, professional individuals who can assist you. Thank you Shulman Law Firm for your expertise.
After separating from my sons Father, I realized co-parenting was not an option. Everything with my ex was a battle; he was disrespectful, hurtful, and verbally aggressive. I wanted to avoid future conflicts and for the best interest of my son, I decided to seek sole custody and support through the courts. I hired Rick from Shulman Law Firm not only for his expertise but to be a voice on my behalf to handle many outstanding issues.
Rick and his staff were transparent, honest, professional, and worked very hard on my case from beginning to end. They made time to explain the process, next steps, and what I could potentially expect based on their knowledge and experience. There were times I doubted the end result of my case, but I felt comforted and reassured through Rick's continued commitment. I trusted Rick's advice and recommendations and was never disappointed or let down. After a long 17 months of many court appearances and disputes, I finally have sole custody and the required financial support to provide for my son. It was a stressful process and at times hard to see the end being near, but I'm overwhelmed with happiness that I got what I've always wanted. I would not have been able to do this without Rick, Farah, Alexandra and other staff support. I would strongly recommend Shulman Law Firm to anyone seeking legal representation for custody and support.
I look forward to life and can finally move forward. I'm relieved and truly grateful to Rick and his team. Thank you!
I went through a very lengthy and nasty separation. I was constantly being threatened and bullied by my ex and her lawyer. Mr. Shulman made me aware of my rights and helped me to draw a firm line. I have two children and theirs and my interests were always at the top of Mr. Shulmans priorities. After a hard year of battling back and forth, Mr. Shulman managed to negotiate a fair deal with someone I considered impossible to reason with.
In such difficult and emotional times, Mr. Shulman helped me keep my head and remember just what we were fighting for. I highly recommend Shulman Law to anyone going through a divorce or separation.
I came to Ron after having fired my previous Counsel and my only regret is not having been introduced to him sooner. I remember in our initial meeting asking Ron "what kind of lawyer would you describe yourself as?". Ron replied "Strategic" and those words probably helped solidify my decision to retain his firm. Ron proved his strategic way of thinking would be a tremendous asset throughout our case.
He was amazing at anticipating opposing Counsel's next move. He was very empathic through the process and explained why we were taking the strategic direction we were on. In the end, he was able to broker a settlement and put an end to a very troubling time in my life. The rest of Ron's staff, in particular Courtney, were responsive and professional. They worked very diligently behind the scenes and helped simplify a very daunting process.
A tremendous weight has been lifted off my shoulders and life can proceed without obstruction and for this I am truly grateful.
When I first met Ron for a free consultation, I felt comfortable with his demeanor and knowledge in the field. He was more than willing to listen to my concerns and took the time to explain how the law works. Although sometimes I may have got agitated during the process, he was able to bring me back to reality and focus on the task at hand, which was my separation agreement.
I knew I was in good hands in dealing with him and his support staff of Courtney, Denis, Arkady, Annabelle. They were all very professional and were quick to respond to any questions I had, even on weekends or late in the evening. Although going through a separation and then the final divorce is not easy for anyone, I would highly recommend this firm.
Thanks Ron to you and your amazing team!
It has been a very pleasant experience to work with Shulman Law Firm on my post divorce settlement agreement. Since the day I walked in Rick Peticca and firm provided professional legal service to negotiate a post divorce agreement with the opposing party. Rick showed his expertise to ensure that I receive desired outcomes. I would definitely recommend Shulman Law Firm to anyone in need of legal help in family matters.
When I first met Rick, he understood my situation and I felt really comfortable. He was professional, and very knowledgeable and very fortunate to have had him work on my file. He provided excellent service and took care of the situation really quick and professionally. I will definitely be calling if any issue should arise. Thank you once again.
From my very first meeting with Rick I felt very comfortable and at ease. I needed someone that understood what I was going through emotionally. Rick took the time to listen to me and really listen, even when I would go off topic and start ranting on about something totally unrelated to my case, he never rushed me or made me feel small, he remained professional at all times and treated me as an equal.
Thank-You Rick for all your understanding. I have recommended you to two people since our last meeting.
I'm getting married and had a child from a previous relationship. I'm doing a destination wedding and required to get passports for all my children including the one from my previous relationship. Knowing that my son's father wouldn't sign off on one I sought out sole custody with the help from Ron and Katherine. Within a year I got sole custody, been able to get a passport without the other parties' consent and change my son's last name.
Everything I wanted done, I received through the consistent help of Ron and Katherine. Without them, I don't think I would have gotten that all done before my wedding. I have the utmost respect and appreciation for everything they have achieved for my family and myself. We can now move onto a new beginning.
Thank you so much!
I have used the services of Ron Shulman and cannot speak highly enough of the caring, expert service I have received from Ron and his staff. Even though I worried about everything Ron and his staff took care of all my concerns and more, with utmost professionalism and I would highly recommend them to anyone who is seeking knowledgeable and professional family law services.
Once again a special thanks to Ron and all his Staff for helping me and my kids get back on track for a better life!
When a marriage is over, the fall-out can last for many years. I found myself in a situation where my ex-wife was making unreasonable demands, and attempting to estrange me from my children. I pride myself on being a family man, but I had no idea how to respond. We came upon Rick Peticca was able to put my experience into perspective, helping me to act from a base of reason, instead of anger. He explained the law, and helped me respond constructively.
Rick held up ‘the big picture’, reminding me of my own core values. With confidence in his knowledge of family law I have been enabled to carry on being that family man, whatever obstacles may be in my (and my children’s) path.
Mr. Peticca is a phenomenal lawyer and we were very fortunate to have had him and Stephanie work on our file.
Thank you for your great help. Your professionalism toward my separation case is excellent. You protect my interests from the beginning to the end. I do know I made a lot of personal mistakes on my own. If I listen to your advice early, things might get better; however I am satisfied with my final outcome. It's really tough to go through these three months. I feel like three years to me. Without your support, things will definitely get worse. Thanks.
In dealing with my divorce, the emotional turmoil and personal challenges, combined with financial pressure proved to be overwhelming. The thought of choosing a lawyer to resolve my “life” after speaking to so many disappointed people who had gone through the same ordeal was awful. “SHULMAN LAW FIRM”, came recommended after I was disappointed and feeling uneasy about continuing representation, by another Family Law Firm.
The staff at “SHULMAN LAW FIRM” wasted no time, reorganizing documents, filing court documents and communicating information. The communication response time was efficient and I was treated with respect and care by all staff. The staff worked beyond all my expectations in all departments, from reception, clerks, accounting, and to my council, Ron Shulman. Ron Shulman’s experience, advance planning, knowledge and dedication; allowed him to advice and explain recommendations, while leaving me feeling confidant and at ease. He knew my case completely.
This and his mannerism in dealing with the opposing counsel proved to be an asset in the courtroom and as a result, resolution of my case. I have and continue to highly recommend “SHULMAN LAW FIRM”.
I was well served by Rick,
Who saw through the opposition's shtick.
He prepared my case so well,
That my ex went through Hell.
Rick Peticca was professional, kind and considerate. He never misled me. He always kept me aware of what could be expected, good or bad, so that there'd be no surprise. His demeanor was such that I was kept comfortable but alert at all times. Unlike many (lawyers) who seem to willingly litigate ad infinitum, increasing their clients' billing hours, Rick kept accurate and fair accounting records and did do what was in my best interest. I am very glad he represented me and can recommend you work with him too!
I met Ron Shulman, he answered all my questioned looked over my documents I had filed, and then explained what I had done wrong. Leaving his office after 6pm I felt relieved, and my mind was made up. Ron Shulman and his team are pure professionals; the level of expertise is comforting and reassuring. They operate like firm; if Ron is unavailable his associates take over.
I am truly happy with the service I received, and they have not only helped me with my divorce but also counseled and supported me through every step.
I just wanted to send you a note of thanks for all of your diligent work in handling the case before the Superior Court of Ontario. You responded back to my enquiries in a very timely and professional manner, and usually in layman’s terms, which is a benefit. What has really stuck out in my mind is the fact that you leave no stone unturned and come up with very concise answers to my very “scattered” questions.
Your support staff/law clerks are also the backbone to your organization and are truly a blessing in dealing with myself and my case. I can only wish you and your firm the best and continued success now and in the future.
You have helped to change our life/situation more than you probably know. I am glad and thankful that we met you and that you were the one to get it closed for us. I have not felt so good and have not slept so well in such a long time. I was at the point of hating to wake up each day and people were constantly telling me that this was wearing on me and that I was not myself.
The difference in me in the last two days is incredible and I do not recall the last time I felt so good. Thanks so much guys for all you do.
I found myself in a lengthy family custody battle and I represented myself. That was my first mistake. I found that I had dug myself in an extremely deep hole as I was not truly prepared to deal with all the angles. I met with yourself at your office and explained my situation. I had the feeling that you had a complete handle of what had taken place and had a course of action ready to initiate the moment I gave you the go ahead.
To say we had an uphill battle (as I no longer had a voice in the court system) was an understatement. Meticulously you got me out of the hole I fell into. Since retaining your services I have had nothing but success in the court system. You and your staff have always conducted themselves in the highest levels of professionalism. I only wish I would have acquired your services from the very beginning.
I thank you for all the help and support you and your staff have provided me over the last year.
I was in need of a lawyer to help me with a messy separation, custody battle and division of property dispute. I had no experience prior to this situation in dealing with the law nor did I know how to go about finding a lawyer. Ron Shulman was referred to me and I have nothing but amazing things to say about him, his staff and the way he handled my case. I was scared of what my future had in store for me and not sure how the court process worked.
Ron and his staff walked me through it every step of the way. They were very supportive and always just a phone call away when I needed something. I never felt like I was being lead down the wrong path, in fact I was very impressed with the fact that before Ron acted on something he asked me how I felt and what direction I wanted to go in, and was always honest about his thoughts if he didn’t think the direction I wanted to take was good for me. They handled my file with both professionalism and a personal caring touch. My experience with Ron Shulman’s law firm was a positive one, and if ever I’m asked to recommend a lawyer his name will be the one I give.
