Client Testimonials

I was involved in a very nasty court case with my husband. I had originally retained a lawyer to help me but after paying her over $100,000.00, I was no closer to settlement after four years.

I was referred to Stanley Potter, family law lawyer by a friend. Mr. Potter was able to deal with all of the outstanding issues and was able to resolve the matter in an expeditious and cost-efficient manner.

I only wish I had retained Mr. Potter originally.

Mr. Potter treated me with respect and understanding and fully explained all issues to me.

I would highly recommend Mr. Potter for any family issue.
AM, Richmond Hill

I appreciate your guidance and restrained approach to resolving emotionally charged and contentious personal matters through my divorce process. Your immediate response and availability to issues as they arose enabled me to manage matters more successfully and effectively while expediting the process.

Thanks once again for helping me keep my focus and for the successful resolution of my divorce.

I was going through separation and found about Stanley Potter and his great personalized service and got help from him. After separation I was unable to communicate with my wife and son as a result I had given up hopes for any reconciliation or a chance to get back with them, but Mr. Stanley Potter opened my eyes and made me realize that it is my right and responsibility to communicate with my son and encouraged me to meet my son by arranging an unrestricted access/parenting time with him, which in turn allowed me to work harder on making things better for my future, and all because of Mr. Potter’s efforts and wise advice I am now able to start a communication channel and trying to reconcile with my wife. Thank you Mr. Potter, your help is greatly appreciated and will be remembered.

I am a tradesman whose income can vary substantially from year to year. My first lawyer cost me my life savings and negotiated spousal support payments that she thought was more than fair. At the end of the court dealings, she told me that I should have had better doctor's reports. It was too late then. Three years later, I had exhausted all of my credit to keep up with the payments. I was mired in debt and facing the loss of my Driver's Licence through the Family Responsibility Office. I also needed two major surgeries that I was deferring so that I could continue to work when it was available.

A friend suggested that I call Stanley Potter. Mr. Potter was straightforward in outlining what would be required for him to negotiate a reduction in spousal support. I obtained the requested reports from my employer and medical specialists. Mr. Potter's patience, skill, expertise, and experience resulted in an extremely positive outcome which gave me my life back. I am very grateful to Mr. Potter and would highly recommend him to any future client.

I would like to thank you and your firm for the excellent work that you have done handling my case. I had dealt with two previous lawyers and was extremely disappointed with the service they provided me. I was in the middle of a separation with two kids and in the most difficult and vulnerable position I have ever been in, when you were referred to me by a previous client of yours. My family and my life changed when you settled my separation. Thank you again for your understanding and your professionalism.
C.E, Mississauga, Ontario

I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your outstanding work for me. Because of you, you have helped me and my family to a better place in this world. My life is so much better after going through that test. I am 50 years old now and I can’t believe how the years have gone so fast. Thanks again for always being there, your friend.
H.M, Guelph, Ontario

I would like to thank Mr. Potter for his tremendous help in my separation and divorce. I am from the Muslim culture and as a result there were numerous cultural issues between myself and my husband. Mr. Potter was sensitive to my concerns. He was able to obtain custody of my child for me. The father had shown little concern for my daughter both during and after our separation. Mr. Potter was able to set up a supervised access program so that the father would get acquainted with the child and learn how to be a proper parent. Mr. Potter was able to obtain an Order for me to inspect my husband’s apartment prior to unsupervised access. Even though the father was not working, Mr. Potter was able to impute income to him so that he had to pay child support from the time of our separation even though my husband claimed he wasn’t working. I would not hesitate in recommending Mr. Potter as a family law lawyer.
S.B., Pickering, Ontario

Thank you for making me feel as comfortable as possible with the situation you helped me with, in such a compassionate, professional manner.
J.H., Toronto, Ontario

I had a major problem with the Family Responsibility Office (FRO). They alleged that I owed a combination of child and spousal support in the amount of approximately $133,300.00. The FRO had started default proceedings against me. I retained Stanley Potter as my lawyer. He was able to stop the FRO from proceeding against me and dramatically reduced the amount of money that was alleged to be owing. I would not hesitate in recommending Stanley Potter as a lawyer, especially in matters dealing with the Family Responsibility Office.

I was in a 30 year relationship (married for 20 years) and woke up one morning to be told by my wife (who was the main income earner) that she did not want to be with me anymore. Not knowing what my options were, I contacted Mr. Potter, who advised me that there were many things that I was entitled to. Thanks to Stanley, I received a large cash settlement (for equalization), spousal support, medical and health benefits.
T.T., Toronto, Ontario

Stanley Potter represented me for a family issue involving my son. I found Mr. Potter to be very thorough with a level of detail that I did not expect. I believe Mr. Potter's preparedness is what ultimately led to a positive resolution to my case. I certainly believe that I had an advantage having Mr. Potter on my team.
R.G., Mississauga, Ontario

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the professional and caring, yet firm approach in which you helped me to put closure on my very complex family case involving my four children. Seven years ago I was put in a position where my life changed forever and your guidance through this tough time meant the world to me. Today, we have put everything behind us and moved forward with our lives. Again, thank you and your staff for the outstanding efficient manner that was used to handle my case.
J.Z., Mother of four, Salt Spring Island, British Columbia

I would like to express my sincere gratitude for your services during the long process of my divorce. The way you handled my case and your hard and thorough work had the great result in the way I got access to my son as well as all other aspects claimed during the proceedings of my divorce. I truly do appreciate the fact that you did whatever was in your power to look after my interests and allowed me to get the best results. Again, please receive my most sincere thank you.
C.V., Thornhill, Ontario
