Jul 18, 2000

Mr. Shekter broke new ground on government liability for road maintenance and set a new bar for personal injury damages judgments. The plaintiff was awarded what was at the time one of Canada's largest personal injury awards in the amount of $5.2 million against three defendants, including Ontario's Ministry of Transportation. The trial judge, Justice O'Brien, commented, "By way of overview I state that I have not seen a case which has been better prepared or presented than this one."

"I have had experience with a few lawyers in my life but no one has been in the same category as Alden.  He took our family's case on, straightened it all out and fought for our best interests.  Our case was difficult as we were fighting a huge insurance company but we won with Alden's expertise and perseverance.  He is knowledgeable strategic, compassionate, and trustworthy.  I did not have to doubt the process anymore or worry I was not in good hands.  He took care of us in many ways and I will always be grateful for his wisdom, skills and friendship.  Thanks so much Alden and the staff at Shekter Dychtenberg for helping my family get back on their feet!!"
