Thank you VERY much – you’ve been top notch all the way along. I almost went with another company initially that was cheaper but you were so efficient and diligent about everything from the get-go that I decided you’d be better, and that is clearly the case. I hope I have the privilege of working with you again in the future, and at least have the chance to recommend you to others. Best regards,

I was in a tough spot with a trial approaching; I needed to find someone to serve my documents, fill out the affidavit of service and file the documents with the court. I emailed GMJ at 7am and got an immediate response. The party was served, the affidavit of service was filled out and filed along with the documents at the courthouse all before 11am. I was more than pleased with my decision to use GMJ.

I have been utilizing Gord Smith’s services in the Ottawa area since 2000 and he has not disappointed us.  Gord’s service has always been exceptional, prompt, accurate and thorough.  I have never considered trying any other process serving firm in the Ottawa area.  I have recommended Gord to other law firms and paralegals and have always had excellent feed back.
