What Our Customers Have To Say About Us

Hear our clients share their experience working with us:

Professional Legal Services

“Very impressed by the professional legal services I've received from Ken Picov and his team. Have now worked with him on a few real estate deals and he has always been extremely responsive and a pleasure to work with. We were under some very tight timelines on one of the proceedings and he went above and beyond the call of duty to get everything finalized and prepared in time so that the deal could go through. Very appreciative of all his insights, highly recommended when looking for a real estate lawyer in Toronto. Thanks again!”

- Paul T.

Professional and Knowledgeable!

“I don't know why the rating of this firm is not high. Mr. Kleinberg is the best real estate lawyer I've met so far in Canada. I had engaged several real estate lawyers in the past, without comparison I don't know how professional, responsive and helpful a lawyer could be. Mr. Kleinberg is not only professional and knowledgeable (he knows the history and situation of the real estate matters and of course understands the law), but also responsive and attentive. I will recommend Mr. Kleinberg without any doubt and I will continuously engage him for all my future businesses. Also, big thanks for supporting staff, including Lydia, also professional and responsive.”

- Becca C.

Highly Recommended!

“Can’t say enough good things about my interactions with Ken. Had to close a deal with very tight time restraints and Ken and his team went above and beyond, going as far as to coordinate paperwork over the weekend so we could sign at 9 am on Monday morning. Not sure this deal would’ve been completed without their help.” Highly recommended.

- Rob T.

Kind Gestures of Compassion

“I am Roy Mular's wife and I want to say what a thoughtful and kind lawyer Bernard Kleinburg is. I recommend his legal services because of his legal knowledge and experience. I also appreciate this kind gesture of compassion after the passing of my husband Roy Mular. He is not the typical lawyer and frankly cares about his clients.”
