“I was in a car accident with my infant and wasn’t sure how to make a claim against the lady who crashed into us. I contacted Melody for a consultation, she was very friendly, caring, and most importantly helped answer any questions myself or my family had!

“Very few times in life, you meet people who really, truly care about others, and who go above and beyond to seek justice for their fellow human beings.

Melody is one of these people.

I originally met Melody because I wanted to ask her some questions about being a lawyer, as I was about to embark on law school the following September. She was kind enough to meet me for lunch and speak to me about my aspirations, giving me some well needed advice.

Not soon after that, I was involved in a motor vehicle accident that left me with a spinal injury, headaches, and serious muscle weakness down my left arm. Between physiotherapy appointments three times a week, doctors appointments, ICBC phone calls, the inability to do even the most basic things such as grocery shopping, and not being able to do my job because of the injuries I sustained, I was left completely overwhelmed and broken.

Melody heard about my situation through a Facebook post and immediately jumped to my aid. From the moment I signed the papers, she handled everything for me as I started my first year of law school and embarked on an arduous journey to recover my strength.

In the end, she was able to negotiate a settlement that covered my lost wages, medical expenses, physiotherapy, and future care, which will enable me to continue to heal and regain my strength and movement back.

If you want someone to be in your corner through thick and thin, Melody is the lawyer for you.”

I was in an MVA accident 3 years ago and was injured.  I tried to deal with ICBC but they would not help in any way  so I went for a consultation with Melody, and was impressed with her expertise.  She was very kind and compassionate, but also knew all the options I had and helped me through this immensely!  Couldn’t have asked for better.   She was always available and was NEVER in a rush at our meetings.  I highly recommend her!  Once again, thank you Melody, it would have been a rough road without you!!

“We had the good fortune of having Darcy work with us at Wolfe Lawyers between 2018-2020. He was responsible for running our Peterborough, Ontario office and was a tremendous asset to our firm. He handled his own cases while assisting senior counsel on their matters. In November 2019 Darcy assisted in the preparation and presentation of a personal injury action in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice in Peterborough drafting factums and examining witnesses as junior counsel. His hard work helped our client achieve a court award over five times what the Plaintiff’s formal offer to settle was. His knowledge of the law and empathy towards his clients makes him an excellent lawyer who clients can have total trust in.” Bill Wolfe, Lawyer, Toronto, ON

"When your involved in an complicating case that has caused you financial distress and emotional despair, making decisions is difficult. In addition I did not understand the legal process. Mr. Soiseth was honest, supportive, caring and his experience quickly become evident. He knew what he was doing. He had a calm, diligent approach to my case. Dan explained the law and outlined in clear language the steps I needed to follow. He was reassuring, articulate and effective. Mr. Soiseth was invaluable in winning my human rights case of sexual harassment, race and color discrimination. I appreciate everything Mr Soseth did for me. Thank you Dan." Mel

“I was blessed to meet Carrie Vaughan at the beginning of my career 20 years ago as an Articled Student at the firm where we both worked in Abbotsford, BC.  Carrie was an invaluable resource to me as a junior lawyer.  Even now I know I can reach out if I need resources in the area of personal injury law.  She is a dynamic team player, kind and empathetic, while also being on the ball; able to deliver a high volume of work in a short period of time.  She has worked in the area of personal injury law for over 20 years with very senior Lawyers and files of high complexity.  While working full-time as a Legal Assistant, she also completed her Paralegal Diploma with honours advancing her own career aspirations.  Clients comment on her positive, attentive, and caring nature.  The lawyers who have been fortunate enough to work with Carrie have noted that she is indispensable to their practice.  Carrie can often anticipate the needs of clients and lawyers alike.  She consistently goes above and beyond what is required of her.  Martin Estate and Injury Law is extremely fortunate to have Carrie as part of their team.”  G.

"I was fortunate enough to meet Dan in law school in 1995. I was immediately struck by his intelligence, insight and wit. Over the years and even as our paths diverged, I sought his guidance and perspective on a number of cases I have conducted. I found his analysis profoundly astute.

“This was my first time ever dealing with ICBC. The laws were quite different than from Italy, where I am from. I was involved in a motorcycle accident. Melody worked with me to gather all the information that was required regarding my employment losses, and made sure everything was correct. I would give her 10 out of 10. Things could not have gone better. I am very happy with the settlement I obtained, and everything Melody did to assist in my recovery.” Michele D.

“I have known Dan Soiseth personally for almost two decades. We became fast friends, as I found him to be friendly and affable, with a fine sense of humor. Over time, I got to understand that Dan took more than a basic interest in his job; he truly cared about the work he was doing, and he possessed compassion for the people he was helping. His practice has always been personal to him. Furthermore, Dan is a real altruist: if one is working on a project or a personal situation, and Dan becomes aware of it, he will begin thinking about how he can help you with it before you have even considered requesting assistance. These are qualities that make him a unique and valuable professional.” Kam Brar
