Here’s What Some Clients and Lawyers Have Had to Say About Me
Mr. Berkes is compassionate and trustworthy professional who tirelessly advocates for his clients. As a therapist who has worked with Mr. Berkes for several years, I am pleased to say that he values the importance of helping his clients improve and maintain their best mental health. I am delighted to recommend Mr. Berkes for his forthright and sincere approach to working with clients and with other professionals.
“Jody and I worked together on a tax evasion matter. We enjoyed an open dialogue concerning what was best for the client using his expertise in criminal law and my expertise in tax law. In the end, we developed a joint strategy that helped our client avoid criminal prosecution. The client was very happy with the result.”
“My firm hired Jody to provide legal services and counseling in connection with a matter pending in Ontario. Jody was excellent - responsive, timely, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with.”
“A knowledgeable, reliable and fearless advocate, and a trusted advisor.”
I was referred to Jody Berkes through a colleague of mine. I met with Mr. Berkes two months after I was charged with Aggravated Assault and Assault with a weapon.
Since i was referred to him through one of his previous clients he was kind enough to offer me a 1 hour free consultation which turned into an almost 2 hour conversation.
Mr.Berkes did not sugar coat anything regarding my charges and the fact that I was facing serious jail time. On the other hand he lead me in the right direction by telling me what I needed to do in order to help my case and prove to the judge why I did not deserve to go to jail. It was a definite up hill battle from the crown assigned to my case not wanting to lessen my charge to myself having to speak on the stand. After almost a year of what felt like a battle, Mr. Berkes was a man of his word and was able to rationalize the event causing my charges resulting in the judge granting me a suspended sentence avoiding any jail time.
I have learned many lessons after going through what seemed to be the hardest year of my life however the one lesson I have passed on is, if anyone gets in serious legal trouble don't think that a more cost efficient lawyer will provide the same results as a more expensive one. In the end you get what you pay for and Mr. Berkes is proven to be worth every penny.
I would recommend Mr.Berkes to anyone in need of help because he is a distinct lawyer that assists in making difficult decisions but also supports his clients in anyway he can.
Once again, we can not thank you enough for your professional demeanor and talented abilities. You are a gifted lawyer, and we are privileged to have had the opportunity to retain you!
Good afternoon Jody,
I would like to thank you very much for everything you have done for me and my family. You have put in an immense amount of work and effort into my case, and I am extremely happy for the way that everything has worked out.
My family and I are very grateful for everything you have done and for all of the aid you have provided.
It was my absolute pleasure to work with you and your firm, I will be definitely recommending your name, and your firm.
If there is anything else you need my involvement in, please let me know and I will be glad to help.
I would like to thank you for representing me in this matter, and yes you achieved a superior result in obtaining a withdrawal of the charges, which I am truly grateful. As I indicated to you in our initial conversation, the charges were not right, but the turmoil and emotional stress related to this has been mind boggling.
I would appreciate your firm involvement in preparing an application for a pardon with respect to the old charges.
Again Thanks, you are definitely entitled to a bonus.
I wish to thank you profusely for everything you have done for both J and myself. You have shown that you are not just a lawyer, but also a very understanding and kind hearted human being. I wish you happiness and great success in both your professional and personal life.
Next week I am off to Italy to consult with the Ministry of Education, then to Paris to give a talk on the future of technology in the classroom and finally, to Peru where I will be volunteering my time to help rebuild schools damaged during the recent earthquake. Although I wish that all of this had never happened, I am grateful for this opportunity to be a better friend, a better brother, a better son, a better teacher and a better person.
My sincere gratitude to you for your role in my journey. If there is ever anything that I can do for you, please do not hesitate to ask.
Thank you very much for the kind and professional way you handled my case.
All the best to you and I hope that we meet next time under better circumstances.
Thanks Jody, You're an angel sent to help us.
