I was in a position with one of my employers. I went to Andrew for his advice and help. I cannot stress how knowledgeable he was. I was amazed by his dedication and perseverance. Andrew and Paige were great at keeping me up to date with the case. If you have any need for legal information regarding any issues about unfair work issues I would highly recommend Andrew. I know that you are also wondering about the fee, that will amaze you too. He is there to help you and you only. I can’t thank you enough Andrew and Paige!

I hired the services of Monkhouse law firm to plead my case for unfair termination from a large public organization. After losing my job, my biggest concern was to seek a fair trial while not going into debt with large legal fees. Monkhouse law firm was unique in a way that it offered me a contract that shared the risk that I would only pay the fees to Monkhouse law firm if we won the case. It assured me that I will not have to borrow any funds to pay legal fees and we have mutual interest. Throughout the course of my legal claim, I was impressed by the way Andrew Monkhouse and his associates dealt with me. They combined facts from the story with references from other legal cases to put together a compelling case. When I was fired by a past employer, they offered a minimum severance. After several rounds of negotiation conducted by Monkhouse, my past employer increased the offer by 10 times the initial offer.

Andrew is a terrific employment lawyer. He is very patient and easy to talk. He took the time to answer all my questions and was not the least bit intimidated when we were up against the partner of a very large firm. In the end, we got a good deal and I’m very happy. Thanks to Andrew and his team! cheers…Dionne

Very professional on my severance case. Did far more work than what he charged wading through lots of email files, etc. Overall I would say he is competent and a decent character who treated me and the other side with respect and firmness.

My employer terminated me without cause and Andrew helped me get the severance I deserved. Really helpful and kind lawyer – would suggest to anyone with employment and labour issues.
–AM from Toronto, Ontario
Wow! Great service. I was terminated. Had no one to turn to. Andrew and his team help me to get what I deserved. He answered all my questions and kept me updated. I felt that my case was important to them. Retaining Andrew was the best decision I made. I was VERY VERY happy with the outcome. If I know anyone who has employment issues, I have one word “Monkhouse”.you will not regret it.

With your help, I am about to open my restaurant. Just signed the lease, this is a dream of mine for many years. Could not have done it without your help thank you.
–CS from Brampton, Ontario
If you have employment issues or have been wrongfully dismissed, I cannot urge you strongly enough to contact Andrew Monkhouse. He and his team are the experts you need in employment law. They got me the best possible settlement, quickly and very reasonably, and I wouldn’t have had to pay if they hadn’t won. I hope I won’t need Andrew again, but if I do, there is no one else I would call.
–SE from Toronto, Ontario
Andrew is an extremely hard-working, honest, and competent lawyer. He took on my file and worked tirelessly to produce an excellent result after I was terminated “with cause” for whistle-blowing. He is thorough, meticulous, and a true professional. I would have no qualms about recommending him to anyone who needs someone knowledgeable and who is a true advocate.
–MM from Hamilton, Ontario
If you need a lawyer for any employment issues, I highly recommend contacting Andrew Monkhouse. I approached him with an employment problem and he was very direct, concise yet thorough with his advice. He is approachable, not to mention he responds to emails/messages very quickly. Last, but definitely not least, I would recommend Andrew because he is an intelligent lawyer who will explain to you the complexity of our legal system. Suffice to say, after I consulted him, I had better control over my employment problem.
–AZ, from Scarborough, Ontario
I have had the pleasure of working with Andrew. He is dedicated to his job and cares about his clients, just as he does for his family. Andrew is always looking for ways to make the expensive legal process more efficient. In Court, I have seen first hand, Andrew’s remarkable ability to actively listen to arguments, identify key issues, respond intelligently and thoughtfully. Andrew is a pleasure to work with both as a colleague and as opposing counsel.

–MS from Toronto, Ontario
I was recently represented by Monkhouse Law in a matter concerning an employer on foreign soil, in another jurisdiction, outside the framework of Ontario Employment Law. Andrew and his team were able to pursue my case with zeal and conclude it to my absolute satisfaction. I would most definitely work with him again, and highly recommend that you do as well.
–WD from Brampton, Ontario
Andrew Monkhouse is a very knowledgeable, professional, compassionate and HONEST lawyer. He attended to my case personally and did a great job. Clients come first for Andrew he listens and understands their needs and views. I would highly recommend Andrew.
–NO from Toronto, Ontario
I found Andrew kind, bright, exceptional in this field (although I believe it would also transcend business law as well), very reasonable and fair. A “good guy” in a field where all too few are. Heartily recommend him for your business-related situations – he’s skilled and reasonable. Worthy side note: One of his assistants, Paige, was both helpful and skilled.
–MM from Toronto, Ontario
Andrew provided me with excellent advice concerning how to handle my pension when I was terminated. He did a complete analysis and presented the options and assisted me in selecting the best option for my situation all in a timely manner.
–PH from Toronto, Ontario
