Testimonials For Hershel Sahian


About Hershel

I was very impressed with Hershel and his team’s professionalism and humility.  My objective was to not be drawn into a legal matter between two other parties that both wanted me as a witness.  Hershel expertly prepared me for a deposition.  With his counseling, the objective was achieved.  During the deposition, I was confident that I had the best lawyer and team at the table.  I wholeheartedly recommend Hershel and his team.

As a young lawyer, Hershel was a mentor to me for seven years.  From strategizing to examining witnesses, Hershel is a skilled civil litigator to watch and learn from.  Hershel has represented clients in many complex cases, including professional liability, construction deficiency and product liability matters.  His fearless advocacy and precision will serve him well as he transitions his practice to estate litigation. Hershel should be recognized for all of the traits which make him an outstanding litigator.

I have had the pleasure of working with Hershel for four years. During this time, we worked on several files together ranging from simple enforcement proceedings to complex, multi-party construction claims and complicated accountant negligence claims. I found him to be a highly effective and efficient litigator.  He is able to quickly assess a file and determine the strengths and weaknesses of his client’s case and formulate a winning strategy. Much to the chagrin of everyone (including opposing counsel), he is consistently able to foreshadow the next steps of the litigation and plan accordingly. His in-depth knowledge of the law combined with his excellent advocacy skills makes him a formidable opponent inside and outside of the courtroom. Regardless of the nature of the claim or its’ dollar value, he aggressively pursues his client’s interests to achieve the best possible outcomes.

Hershel you were invaluable to me more than once in the last few years. Both situations were unique in nature but created the same crushing anxiety for me. Having you in my corner offered me great relief. Your calm and expertise put me at ease instantly.  It was crucial for me to work with someone who was responsive and proactive with a strategy to manage the situation and bring it to a close as quickly and as painlessly as possible. You were amazing from start to finish – always supportive and patient. In both cases you brought about a successful outcome in a relatively short period of time.  You made sure I stayed realistic and focused on ‘the big picture’, allowing me to have closure quickly and to move on!

I had the pleasure of dealing with Hershel in a civil litigation matter that was somewhat convoluted and factually complicated. Throughout the litigation I found Hershel to be completely thorough, friendly, hard-working and quite professional at all times. Hershel was extremely diligent and pursued the defence with expertise and strength of a pit bull. He had extreme patience in dealing with the counsel for the Plaintiff who was continually missing deadlines and on many occasions Hershel brought Applications to the Court to force compliance with the Rules of Practise. The case was finally dismissed and we were awarded our costs in the proceeding. I was completely satisfied with Hershel and I would highly recommend him in any and all civil litigation matters.
