Here is what our customers have to say about our services
There are challenges no doubt being a lawyer, and being a client regarding Family Law in British Columbia. I am impressed with Tim Stars ability who works at Zukerman Law Group to balance both. He is very committed , working long hours to assist me in my case. What I admire most is he will communicate, and educate me, and help me stay focused under the most challenging circumstances. He achieved the results that we intended, and worked well with other lawyers in doing so. I liked his approach in court. My case was very challenging, and he did a good job. The assisting staff are also very supportive an good to work with. I highly recommend with confidence Zukerman Law.

“Had a consultation with a truly fine gentleman from Zukerman Law. His name is Ron Huinink. A received excellent advice and was given many things to think about and consider. I will use Ron and Zukerman Law if and when the time is right!”

“Excellent firm. My legal team is Celina and Ken. Both these amazing people go out of there way for me. I have 2 family law cases they have gotten me through and for that I am truly thankful. They keep me at ease while they take care of business. I don’t think I could have made it through the process twice with out them. Thank you Celina and Ken, Carol-Lynne”

“Excellent experience with Stuart and Meena. Knowledgeable and highly efficient with sound legal advice. They both protected my assets while at the same time ensuring I didn’t overreact to outlandish requests from opposing council. In the end they made a highly stressful period of my life relatively effortless. Many thanks to both of you.”

“Stuart is an excellent lawyer who helped me and my family through a very difficult case. He and his paralegal Meena were incredibly caring and attentive. They both gave me tips on how to reduce or minimize the legal fees being incurred by their firm. Stuart was very knowledgeable and helped explain the law to me and to adjust my expectations to be realistic rather than encouraging me to spend money on issues that I was unlikely to be successful on. It was worth every penny and I have no hesitation in recommending him and his team.”

“Stuart has acted for me in 5 separate court applications. He is tenacious, intelligent, well spoken and passionate in court. Each time we went to court, Stuart’s fees were in line with the range that he predicted from the outset – no surprises except for the incredible outcomes each time. I can’s recommend him enough. Stuart is simply the best lawyer in town!”

“Stuart, Meena and Celina are the best family law team in town! They are extremely knowledgeable and very sensitive towards the intricacies of family law. If you want a law team that cares and will protect your interests, Zukerman is your go-to firm. They will explain everything in plain language, and will be there for you through the entire process. I would say Zukerman Law Group is the best legal team in town for any family related matters.”

“Stuart Zukerman and his assistant Meena Babin were not only extremely professional but genuinely sincere with helping me in my law suit. They helped me in the fullest get results and saved me money in every way they could where some lawyers would take advantage of the vulnerable. I had sought out other law advice but felt they didn’t help me get my situation solved but Zukerman did. I hope that I am not in a situation where I need a lawyer again but if I ever do will not hesitate to call Zukerman law services.”

“Stuart was the fourth family lawyer I hired over 8 years of litigation, I wish I found him sooner – he was the most effective and most valuable lawyer I’ve had. He was excellent in the courtroom and managed to prevent several applications from proceeding through effective letter writing and strategic negotiation. At $350 an hour his services were not cheap but his over 20 years of experience made all the difference in the outcome.”

“I met with 6 lawyers before Stuart. They each said I would spend upwards of $100,000.00 to go to trial and that I would probably lose. Stuart took the time to really listen and understand my situation. He cared and was willing to take my case to trial with a lower retainer agreeing to discount his fees if “we” lost. We went to trial – Stuart was brilliant and very passionate and effective in court. I won over $300K plus double costs ($34,000.00) against my wife! Great Job Stuart! “
