While working on an existing file with Pushor Mitchell, my case was transferred over to Taryn Moore as a result of an appointment to the Bench. Within a very short period of time, Taryn came up to speed on a very complicated file and brought closure to it. Not only did Taryn accelerate the closure of the file, but she did so in a very professional manner and with very clear explanations on the principles of law, alternatives that could be pursued, and consequences of varying alternatives. There was complete confidentiality which was extremely important to me. I have found Taryn to be fully competent, timely and efficient. I would highly recommend her and her team.
Taryn, please accept my heartfelt thanks for the professional, caring and understanding manner in which you have been helping me through my recent separation from my partner. What I hold with the highest regard is how you & your legal team have been compassionate and sensitive to my needs, not only as client but as a person caught in the midst of seemingly unending emotional turmoil, struggling to survive and trying to keep my mind and soul fairly intact. Difficult times as these require a skill set unique in its ability to separate fact from fiction and reality from emotion. Your professionalism, knowledge and human approach gave me the confidence to step forwards to protect my interests; you are always just a phone call away. I’ve always felt respected & safe with your experienced direction during this very difficult time. I trust you. Taryn, I can’t thank you enough for all your hard work and expertise in taking on my case. I will continue to recommend both you and your firm in the future.
I am very pleased to pass on my recommendation of Taryn Moore. Professional, strong communication skills, incredibly knowledgeable, but more important takes the time to listen, analyze and then offers and delivers a focused resolution designed with her clients best interest in mind.
