Lawrence Jeffries, Executive Director of Sagashtawao Healing Lodge
I have recently participated in the HR Training provided by Suzanne Desrosiers as it relates to employment contracts, Human Right and the Canada Labour Code. I found the training awesome in the way it was explained very well and time was allowed for breaks and questions. The structure of the presentation was such that they used layman terms that were easy to understand and follow. It was excellent information that I can use in my organization. The sessions are evenly paced and questions were allowed to clarify various points. I have the seminars very helpful and enjoyed the fact that we could ask questions on the cases presented. I would note hesitate to recommend this training to all First Nation organizations. Personally I would be interested in participating in future sessions.

I am the Executive Director of the Ojibway Cree Cultural Centre. I had the opportunity recently to take HR Training with Suzanne Desrosiers I must say, I really enjoyed all the HR Training seminars I took namely Employment contracts, Human Rights, Harassment in the Workplace, Progressive Discipline and Steps to an effective termination. The training was all geared to a federally governed employer such our organization as we are governed by both the Canada Labour Code and the Canadian Human Rights Act. The setting was very comfortable. Suzanne is very down-to-earth, friendly and very knowledgeable when it comes to Employment Law related issues.. I enjoyed spending time with Suzanne. She has a very good attitude and always willing to help you out.
I would recommend these types of training to all employers both provincially and federally governed employers. I really learned a lot by participating in this training. I am now looking into a lot of things/issues that I wasn’t aware before. It will be very beneficial in may line of work. Thank you Suzanne Desrosiers for all your help and friendship.
Matter of Wrongful Termination - A.
I sought Suzanne's help in a matter of wrongful termination. Although she was supposed to be on vacation the day after I contacted her, she still worked on my case, as there were crucial deadlines she didn't want to miss that made all the difference for me in the end. Suzanne is very knowledgeable and she gave me great advice. She also advised me that I could transfer my group life insurance into a personal plan within 30 days of termination, which is something that my employer had neglected to inform me of. I also felt like Suzanne genuinely cared about me and the situation I was in. I would recommend her to anyone who needs advice relating to employment law.

Thank goodness my lawyer works Friday nights!
Our house sale and and the acquisition of our new "dream" home were scheduled to occur at 6:00pm on a Friday evening. Usually things move along during business hours to avoid any issues with the closing but a certain financial institution had been technologically out for most of the day, nation wide. My husband and I were fluttering with anxiety that we may be homeless for an evening with no hopes to store our possessions. Suzanne and her team worked tirelessly running from financial institutions to other legal offices and making countless phone calls to ensure we would meet our deadline, regardless of the nation wide barrier!!! They were reassuring and flexible but also vigilant and professional. It was not our first time using their professional services and certainly will not be our last. Thank you for the quick service, professionalism and reasonable rates for our house sale and purchase.

“After calling multiple law firms for advice on dealing with a human rights issue for a family member who has mental health issues, I decided to call Suzanne. I am very pleased with the information she provided me with, and she educated me on matters which helped greatly. Her advice allowed me to make the best, informed decisions. We have been struggling for a number of years, very unhappy with our current situation and until speaking with her, had no hope of having our issues resolved. I now feel confident that things are going to get done in our case. She responds quickly to answer any questions you have. She is very professional and compassionate and went out of her way to help. Should you find yourself, or a loved one, in need of legal advice, I would highly recommend Suzanne. I am so grateful to have had you to help me with this most difficult time of my life.”

From: J.C. March 7th 2017
"I am located in Toronto and wanted to purchase land in Northern Ontario, so I called Suzanne's office for a price quote for a real estate transaction. She spoke with me more than once over the phone, asking a lot of relevant questions. I would not have thought to inquire with the seller about certain rights that should have come with the property. I was really lucky to have found Suzanne online, as her advice saved me from a costly mistake. She definitely knows her stuff. The price quote she gave me was consistent with three other offices I checked, in both Toronto and Northern Ontario. I got the impression that Suzanne is very conscientious, diligent, and experienced. Will definitely be contacting her again for future transactions. "

"I recently found myself in need of legal consultation to resolve an employment issue. It was amazing to me the reaction from Suzanne and her team. Finding myself in a situation that was not foreseen was unfamiliar. I left Suzanne's office after my first visit feeling like there was a team behind me. Emails and phone calls were answered quickly, with sound advise; and on my schedule. The group's knowledge of employment law and standards is what I believe brought my case to a prompt resolution within 12 days. It was great pleasure to work with a team that produced quality results in a short period of time. I would recommend this group to anyone without hesitation."

"I am presently the Band Manager of the Fort Albany First Nation. Prior to this I occupied the position of Business Manager with Attawapiskat Education Authority. I first met Suzanne when she was providing a Seminar to a Board of our First Nation in the area of Employment Law a number of years ago. I found her to be very knowledgeable and she is very sensitive to the needs of our First Nations. In fact I have been dealing with Suzanne on behalf of my last two employers in the area of Employment Law for many years. She is always prompt to respond to my calls or emails and if she is not available immediately she will set a time to discuss the matter at the first opportunity. I even had her call me while she was on holidays last year as there was a pressing matter that needed to be dealt with. I would highly recommend Suzanne as an Employment Lawyer to my counterparts. ”
From: Cliff Collin Date: June 27, 2011
"I have recently purchased an apartment building. One of my friends told me about Ms. Desrosiers' office and how well they handled his last property investments. That same day I called and they conveniently booked me in for 5H30 p.m. to work around my schedule. That’s when I knew I had something good.
Ms. Desrosiers was amazing at guiding me starting in the late fall 2010 with the purchase of an 8 unit apartment building. She had some really good advice that in the end saved me thousands of dollars. This was because of the experience in this field that she knew what to look at to avoid any problems before they would even occur. Ms. Desrosiers provided me with an agreement of purchase and sale that stated that it was the responsibility of the vendor to have a tenant evicted at his expense for non-payment of rent and damage to the property. The agreement also stated that the closing of the transaction would be extended until the vendor successfully evicted the tenant that was in default of rent so that I did not have that problem when I first acquired the property.
I found Ms. Desrosiers really easy to talk to and accessible when I required her services. I would send her an email and within the same day I had a response. Also, if she needed something from me she would call and send an email to make sure that it did not get forgotten. She was always prompt in providing me with her services even to the point that she drafted an agreement for me over a weekend because she knew that it was very important for me to have the same done during that time period.
I am seeing Ms. Desrosiers for other business ventures. This time I will seek her advice before taking any steps. I have already saved time and money as a result of her guidance. Thanks Suzanne and your Team”
Sincerely, Cliff Collin
From: Veronica Nicholson, Executive Director - Timmins Native Friendship Centre
"Suzanne has been the solicitor for the Timmins Native Friendship Centre (TNFC) for a great number of years even before I first became the Executive Director. Suzanne has been providing the TNFC with guidance with respect any employer-employee situations that we have encountered that have the potential of becoming litigious. Suzanne has also represented our interest in the acquisition of some real estate. I have found that we have been provided sound advice and good guidance from Suzanne Desrosiers in our legal endeavours. She will be very frank with us and advise us if we have a strong case and to stand strong on our position. She will also be very forthright when our position is weak and we should consider a settlement of the issues. Communication is key and Suzanne has always offered an open line of communication with both myself and my upper management staff. Through my years of experience as an Executive Director I have found that it is preferable to seek legal advice first prior to taking any steps as opposed to trying to undo a step that has already been taken. Suzanne has always made herself available to provide us with that guidance and avoid any “surprises".".
Yours very truly. Veronica Nicholson

I am the President and one of the owners of Kia of Timmins. I have dealt with Suzanne Desrosiers as a lawyer for the past 26 years. I initially met Suzanne while working with Riverside Acres of Timmins Limited, a major developer in the City of Timmins at the time. Suzanne was the solicitor who dealt with the sale of the lots alone, the sale of the house alone (without the lot), or the sale of both the lot and the house as a package deal, which were being built by Riverside Acres of Timmins Limited for individual clients. She acted Riverside Acres of Timmins Limited for approximately 15 years, until all the lots owned by the developer were sold. Suzanne and her team were always well organized in their work and they were very much “team players” in getting the work done in a timely fashion. I am now involved in another venture personally involving the sale and leasing of vehicles, and some real estate. Suzanne continues to represent my interest as well as the interest of my companies. She has always provided us with sound legal advice in my business ventures. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone particularly in the area of Real Estate and Employment Law.
Yours very truly, Bruce Stewart - President - KIA Motors
From: MUNDO PEETABECK EDUCATION AUTHORITY EDUCATION OFFICE
To whom it may concern:
I am the chairperson of the Board of Mundo Peetabeck Education Authority (MPEA) which is an arm of the Fort Albany First Nation. I can indicate that Suzanne Desrosiers has been the lawyer for the M.P.E.A. in issues dealing with Employment Law matters going back to 2005 when she was retained to draft some employment contracts. During my term as the chairperson of the Board we have had to deal with a number of employment law issues and some that were not easy to deal with. Suzanne was always readily accessible to discuss matters of concern with our Board even after normal business hours. Suzanne is the type of lawyer who will provide you with the options that are available to you and the consequences associated with each option leaving the Board to make the ultimate decision. Suzanne also offers seminars on Employment Law related matters and on Board Governance both in person and via webinar. I have personally participated in some of her seminars which I have found very informative. I would highly recommend individuals in management positions as well as Board of Directors responsible for Employees participate in such Seminars. Trusting the same is satisfactory.
Yours very truly, Liz Kataquapit - Chairperson of the Board. of Mundo Peetabeck Education Authority.
