Client Reviews
★★★★★
"Stephen Bourtin conducted a case for me against my previous employer. He consistently provided intelligent and sound counsel as he guided me through a long and difficult process. The end result was far better than I expected (we won!). He did FANTASTIC work for me and I can't recommend him highly enough." From an executive with a disability discrimination case
★★★★★
"Lawsuits can be upsetting, for obvious reasons. Stephen and Patrick did a first rate job of not only securing a 100% successful outcome for my matter, but [critically] walking me through the process at every step: what to expect, how to handle it, when I needed to do some homework and when it was better to sit back and wait for the process to play itself out via our legal system. Even though my case was probably not the largest matter that Stephen has ever handled, in terms of the sums at stake, I still felt that I was receiving his full care and attention as a client. It's also clear to me from this process that it's not a always a given that legal teams have their clients best interests at heart. With Stephen I never had any doubt that he was looking out for me and my interests, above all else. This is clearly a matter of culture and pride at The Boyd Law Group and it's why I'd recommend them to anybody asked." From the CEO of a Branding Consulting company the Firm successfully defended in a litigation
★★★★★
