What our clients are saying about us

As their client I felt that someone really cared about me as a person and that I was not just a number on a client list. I will strongly recommend Nolan, Ciarlo LLP for any legal matter.
-Marcella, Hamilton
We had confidence right from the beginning that we would be treated with professionalism, skill and dignity and that we would be given excellent advice and all the knowledge we needed to proceed. From beginning to end our lawyer guided us every step of the way and kept us informed of all proceedings. The outcome was even more favourable than we anticipated.
-Adrienne, Fonthill
Once I met Ned I knew right away that I was in good hands. One of the most professional and ethical lawyers I have ever met. Definitely left with me with a different perspective from what I thought about lawyers in the past.
-Ken, Kitchener
Efficient, honest & ethical. The advice received was always spot on & saved a lot of unnecessary prolonged legal action. I trust this firm 100% & would not hesitate to refer friends, family & colleagues . They have served the Hamilton community for over 100 years... speaks volumes.
-Moira, Hamilton
Dermot and his team came into our lives at a very dark time. My son’s accident left my family devastated in too many ways to mention. From the first conversation I had with him on the phone I felt a great weight lifted off my family. His kind words and friendly tone set the stage for what would be the most difficult journey of our lives, one we most certainly could not have made without him and his teem. The compassion and understanding they showed us felt like a warm blanket on a very cold time in our lives, we could not be more grateful. From the bottom of our hearts we thank you.
-Sean, Burlington
