Howie Sacks & Henry Reunions
“Having a slip and fall accident is scary enough, but to file a lawsuit against the biggest airport in Ontario and the GTAA is overwhelmingly terrifying. However, through all the paper work, interviews, the discovery, etc, Kaitlyn MacDonell has been such a blessing. Not only did she make the entire process a smooth one, but she was also someone that was able to comfort me in times of distress and physical pain from my accident. If I had any questions, either her or her clerk Catherine Gomez were there to answer any and all questions.
I highly suggest Howie, Sacks and Henry, and if you can request for Kaitlyn MacDonell you will be in the best of hands!”
“Joel and the rest of the firm were invaluable in helping us through a difficult time. After I was involved in an accident and having suffered both physical and mental injuries, I was unsure of what to do next. My family and I were dealing with doctors, insurance, and medical bills, as well as the emotions from what had just occurred. Joel was great in walking us through what the process would be. He answered all our questions, and made himself available to us when needed. My fmaily and I felt comfort in knowing we were in good hands, and would be settling for the compensation that I desperately needed.”
“I just wanted to personally write to you and tell you what an amazing team you have with Meghan M. Hull Jacquin, Christie McKeown and Melissa Villano. They have taken care of me and Meghan has been a driving force of not only hope but reinforced positivity to me no matter what has transpired throughout the entire time my case has been going on. I cannot say thank you enough to her and her team for their tireless efforts to make sure that I was taken care of and that the RIGHT thing was done every time. Meghan has been my voice in this throughout and I have to say it was a great honour to me to have her as my spokesperson in this tenure. She is truly an amazing representative for the ongoing history of the firm as well as a voice to the people and the clientele that your firm deserves. Christie McKeown is absolutely brilliant as well in her diligence to always make sure she was always in contact with me and always followed up as soon as possible with thorough and precise explanations. An absolute pleasure to be in contact with her and she took amazing care of things for Meghan and me. Not to forget Melissa Villano who was the last person I have the esteemed pleasure to work with in my case and she has been just amazing with her immediate follow ups and quick accuracy of information, and a complete joy to work with. Thank you so much for having these truly amazing women in your firm. They are an absolutely brilliant example of what HSH is all about.”
“Almost immediately following the MVA that occurred in August 2012, Joel Dick became an important part of my recovery both physically and financially. He very aptly navigated us the insurance claims as well as out lawsuits. Joel possesses the perfect mix of legal skill and knowledge along with genuine compassion. He extended great patience to me and my family; he remained responsive throughout the entire process and always made time to provide regular updates and reassurance. I could not imagine going through the ordeal without Joel at my side. I would greatly recommend him to anyone requiring legal representation. Thank you again, Joel! All the best of the season to you and yours!”
“Thank you for all your time and effort in assisting me during my time of pain, stress, and suffering.”
“Dear Joel Dick, I am pleased to mention your firm to people I know if they need a personal injury lawyer. I have been pleased with what you did for [my granddaughter]. I really do not know what else I can say. Joel, you understand what had happened to her with her heart condition. Hope all is well. Love you, Joel.”
“The team at Howie, Sacks & Henry have been instrumental in helping my family navigate the legal and insurance systems. We are very appreciating of the dedication and hard work your team has put in for my family. Every member of the team acted with compassion and professional when communication with us and advocating on behalf of my parents. Thank you so much for everything you have done for us. It has been a relief to have such an outstanding team of lawyers, assistants and clerks on our side, especially during such a stressful period of time. We never had any doubt that we were in good hands and will always be grateful or your commitment to the successful outcome of our case and my parents’ well-being.”
“David and Orit, I cannot tell you often enough just how amazing you are. Not only do you keep an incredible system running, you have the rare ability to fully support your clients. For me you had the uncanny ability to say exactly the right thing at the right time. Every time I was about to have a major meltdown you were so patient, so reassuring and so able to help me put things into perspective. Your on-going support was critical to me. I’m not sure I would have been able to hang in to the end without your help. So a very, very big thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
“Brad Moscato is excellent and everyone at the firm was really nice and caring. They showed compassion and made me feel very comfortable. I always felt they had my interests at heart and that I was kept informed of every step. The team understood how serious my condition was and most of all understood that this accident changed my life. When you are rear ended by an 18 wheeler truck, life will never be the same. We were able to settle out of court and get me the support I needed. I highly recommend the team at HSH.”
“Adam Wagman and his team fought hard to make sure I received everything I was entitled and a great settlement. Adam also took the time to help me understand the process and my rights. My family and I are grateful that Adam and HSH were in my corner.”
“I would like to sincerely thank Adam Wagman for his professionalism while helping me and my family through a very devastating time. He always made me feel like his most important client by constantly keeping me informed and up to date. Adam was very empathetic and supportive during this whole process, and made a positive difference in mine and my family’s lives. I want to take the time to express my deepest gratitude and wish you, Adam and Tania, great health and a prosperous future.”
“This is a testament to the excellent services provided by Brad Moscato in settling my case in a timely manner. Great preparation for the discovery and mediation. Brad was always available to take my calls and answer any questions. Good work on getting it settled before trial for a satisfactory amount. I would highly recommend Brad & Howie, Sacks & Henry.”
“Using the expertise of Melissa Miller of Howie, Sacks & Henry helped ease me through my personal injury battle. Melissa always made me feel like I was her only client, with her gentle yet assertive approach to all of my questions. The quality of service and knowledge was unsurpassed.”
“I would like to express my appreciation to Renée and say thank you for your work. Since the moment we have met, I knew my case will be in good hands. I sensed empathy immediately and felt safe with you. Your knowledge as a lawyer and your previous working experience as a nurse is a very unique combination. Practical too. I believe this transmission of knowledge made it possible to understand what kind of implication this injury causes and how it is affecting my life. I would like to thank you and the team you worked with as well. I think the communication was excellent. Exchanging information between the members were handled carefully. Everybody was always pleasant, attentive and represented themselves in professional manners. I felt that my case was looked after delicately and prepared very well in details. Thank you again.”
“I just wanted to thank you and buy you a coffee. I appreciate you being so helpful.”

“I just wanted to thank the team at HSH for the time and effort put into my case. A special thanks to Kaitlyn and Christie for your guidance and patience and support through a difficult time.”
“Dear Mr. Michael Henry, I wanted to thank you for all the work you have done for me. You have been very friendly. Your professional and knowledgeable staff have helped me throughout. The frequency of responses and timely communication is another plus that your team has. I would definitely recommended you to others that may be looking for an honest and reliable lawyer.”
“Let me express my personal appreciation to you and all your staff. The results have been wonderful. Mary is much better. Had I undertaken this journey by myself, I am sure the outcome would have been much worse.”
“No words can express the gratitude and appreciation that I have for your firm. My case was not high profile and the reward would not bring prosperity and affluence, yet your firm was kind enough to represent me when I was at the edge of the cliff. My struggle against a powerful insurance company exhausted all my resources and left me helpless. Your firm gives hope to “regular decent folks” who work hard and live simply. From my heart…I am your most grateful client and will always declare that Howie, Sacks & Henry LLP has a humane face and a beating heart of compassion, understanding and consideration to people from all walks of life.”
“It’s been over 7 months since my case was finalized with Howard Blitstein as my lawyer. I took this time to fully heal mentally to understand the impact it has left me the past 5 years dealing with my lawsuit. It was mentally exhausting for me while I battled with my lawsuit and health. I am finally able to express my thoughts by saying that Howard played a major role in my settlement.My husband was a very big factor trying to calm me down during this ordeal. My stamina to battle the legal system made me stronger as time grew to a close. [My husband] made countless prior phone calls with other lawyers and Law firms before he handpicked Howard himself. He knew what I wanted and needed. I want to thank the firm of Howie, Sacks & Henry for taking on my case. I also want to thank Denise Mundier, Ana Santos, Kristy Mayers and all the women behind the scenes who do a lot of the workload in preparation who often may get overlooked in the office. I remember sitting in the office with Howard Blitstein and Neil Sacks years ago discussing my case at length and both agreeing to start litigation. Thank you to Neil Sacks as well. My settlement is satisfactory to my future needs, I understand now after 7 months, it would have been perilous to continue with no assurance in the end. An extra amount of dollars could have unfortunately derailed this. Howard not only did a wonderful counsel of my case but was very kind, gentle and showed personal compassion for my right to justice. He was always available within an hour or less of a phone call or email at home or office. He made me feel I was in good hands and trust was always important to me. Howard Blitstein also contacted me 2 months ago just to see how I was doing, which brightened my day. Very classy. Howard Blitstein deserves a high commendation for his excellent qualities as an attorney and I appreciate all he has done for me. Both my husband and I applaud him with utmost respect. He is a great lawyer but also a true gentleman.”
“I would like to express my appreciation and gratitude for taking my case and seeing it through with utmost professionalism and positive outcome for myself. From my first meeting with Adam, through following interaction with Joel, staff and third party professionals I always felt I was in the hands of true professionals. Never once did I have the need to ask for clarification or question anything. You and your teams attention to detail is an inspiration, something one does not encounter very often. If someone were to ask me how you might have handled my case better, I would be at a loss for an answer. It goes without saying I will recommend only you to those who may be in need of your services.”
“I would like to thank Brad and Wendy for helping me in winning my case against the insurance company…I can finally turn the page and get on with my life…I am grateful. Great job thank you.”
“Melissa is a true asset to Howie, Sacks & Henry. She is a talented lawyer, straightforward and to the point. She was determined to resolve my case with the best possible result for me. Extremely personable and easy to talk to. I would (and have) highly recommend Melissa to my friends. Would not hesitate to use Melissa in the future. Thank you again. Without your assistance this would never have been resolved.”
“Joel, thank you for all your help with my parents. We are very appreciative of the hard work you and your team have put in for them. It has been a relief for them to have such great lawyers on their side.”
“Michael, I would like to take this opportunity to formally thank you for providing us with all your expertise in handling our lawsuit, with your straightforward tact and sympathetic understanding you were able to ease my concerns. I always felt very comfortable working with you and know that my best interests were being served, I appreciate your time and work to bring this situation to a close. I was extremely satisfied with your professional temperament and attention to detail in tackling this lawsuit along with securing an excellent settlement. I want to thank you again for all your help and assistance over the past 3 and a half years in helping us work through this very emotional event. Thank you and your firm for providing us with the highest level of professional legal counsel available. The advice and representation we received throughout this very difficult process was everything we hoped for and everything you promised me since day one.”
“Joel, my sincere appreciation for a job well done and for your unwavering support. Litigation was not a road I wanted to travel but since that’s the way things unfolded, I’m very grateful that you and I journeyed it together. You were the perfect fit for me – patient, kind, understanding, confident, strong, straight-forward and extremely knowledgeable. You led me masterfully through this whole process. I deeply appreciate your belief in me and in the legitimacy of my disease. Thank you for the victory. What a positive difference this has made, and will continue to make, in my life.”
“Thank you Sandra for being there with me today. I would have never gotten through it without you by my side. You are one amazing, professional, articulate and outstanding lawyer. Seeing you in action and how quick you are and how you never miss one heartbeat totally impressed me. I thanked God I was in your good hands.”
“Michael always kept me in the loop as to what was happening with my case and while the insurance company was delaying, he kept pushing until they were forced to the table and then they finally made a sensible settlement…I was thrilled with the result and can now get on with my life…”
“We wish to extend our great appreciation and thankfulness for you and your colleagues. In particular, thank you to Meghan Hull, who took great care of our son’s lawsuit, and our family interest. It has been a pleasure working with the HSH office, in the most professional way we could have hoped for. Thank you very much.”
“Michael, I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for all of your hard work. Your kindness, integrity and patience are most admirable. More importantly, you have my deepest gratitude for treating my mom as a person, not just another client.”
“Thank you, Meghan, for all your time spent on this. Your kindness and compassion during this whole ordeal was greatly appreciated. People need to know that there are sincerely great lawyers out there that have compassion for humanity.”

Sister of J.C.
“Our thanks to David Levy and your staff for all the work you have done for our son. After visiting several lawyers we were going to give up on being able to get him the help he needed as a result of the MVA that happened when he was just 6 months old. Our last hope was Howie, Sacks and Henry who, after taking the time to listen to us, assured they could help our son get the services he required.Within a short time after taking us on help arrived. His grades slowly began improving. The stress in our home began declining and overall life became more manageable. You were able to get our child the best possible outcome for him to face his challenges with confidence and dignity and we cannot thank you and your staff enough for this.”
“I found Mr. Dick to be extremely passionate, knowledgeable and approachable. He always made me feel he was in my corner and based all his decisions on what was in my best interest. He was always honest with me and I never felt uneasy with any of his advice as to our next move…I know the very positive outcome that I experienced was a direct result of Mr. Dick’s passion, commitment and expertise and for this I am very grateful.”
“Because of Mr. Brad Moscato and his team, my life is now brighter and my medical support is forever taken care of. He is not only an excellent attorney, providing the highest quality legal advice, but also a professional who goes above and beyond helping his clients. As a client, you always feel that he will stand up for you and will help you get through the process every step of the way. I would definitely recommend Mr. Moscato to everyone. I could not have asked for a better attorney.”
“My father had a terrible car accident back in February 2007, but the Insurance Company was not willing to help. We saw a lawyer for a couple of years, went through many tests and rebuttals but got nowhere until the acting lawyer referred us to Howie, Sacks & Henry . When we met at your offices, something seemed different: everybody was upbeat and ready to help. We saw a lion defend my father’s rights. Brad Moscato did not negotiate anything, only my father’s well being and got the best settlement available for him. Brad Moscato is an excellent lawyer who knows all about car injuries and will not back down in front of a powerful insurance company. I will recommend him over and over again to any of my friends, should they ever have to go through the same ordeal.”
“My deep gratitude to Meghan Hull Jacquin for her expert and kind support throughout my lengthy public transportation case. I was referred to your firm by a former neighbour, and I cannot overstate my admiration for how my case was handled. Meghan’s qualities as a litigator truly amazed me in that, during what was for me a shockingly accusatory discovery, her steadfastness and quickness of intellect meant she was always in command of the situation, no matter how provocative the stance of defence counsel. In our meetings, Meghan was always charming, gracious and warm and made a difficult situation so much more comfortable for me. Beneath this charm and warmth dwells an unwaveringly strong and knowledgeable professional. I drew much strength from recognizing this quality in my lawyer and, even though I understandably had times of great discouragement, given the ongoing intransigence of the defence and the fact that I have to cope with painful physical impairments, Meghan’s encouragement and good humour gave me hope and courage to continue on.”
“We will always feel gratitude for your kind and compassionate care for our family and lawsuit. Your knowledge was invaluable in achieving a good result with the court. . . life is for the living and I refuse to submit to a life of inactivity and disability. Thanks again for all your help and continued success to you all.”
“Thank you to Howard Blitstein for your steadfast efforts regarding our case. Most especially, I appreciated your understanding, as well as your restrained and respectful way of discussing the situation with us.”
“Dear Brad Moscato, thank you to all the people who have helped me since the accident. Thank you for your lovely help and beautiful kindness. I wish you and your family are happy, peaceful, healthy, love and successful.”
“From the moment I contacted Howie, Sacks and Henry and Mr. Adam Wagman was assigned to my case, he not only cared for me and my family, but he understood and supported me during the process. He was always kind, caring, polite and professional. At my Tort mediation Adam Wagman, along with Melissa Miller‘s negotiating skills far surpassed all my expectations. They are both insightful lawyers and got an excellent settlement for me. Adam Wagman and his excellent staff was looking out for my best interests at all times. I am very satisfied with the legal services that were rendered to me and with the total outcome of the case. Adam Wagman and his dedicated staff live true to their mission and vision statement – they are the epitome of excellence – delivering only the best to their clients, and in so doing display great care, compassion and concern.”
“I just wanted to thank all of you for the time and effort you put into my case. A special thanks to Howard for your guidance and patience and support . You are indeed very special person and your advices were highly appreciated. Again, many thanks to everyone in your team. Much love and Blessings.”
Nivine and Sameh H.
“Upon receiving the closure letter in my accident case, I wanted to take the time to express my gratitude to you Adam, Tania, Pryia, Katrina and Joel. From my first meeting, sitting in the wheelchair with Adam and my wife at Sunnybrook, you five have made this part of my recovery very comfortable and painless. I am forever grateful. Although I have recovered exceptionally well up to this point, I realize the future is not always clear and I am at peace with the security that the settlement may provide, if necessary. Adam I have been slow to grasp this possible reality and by no means did I mean to dismiss the importance of the work that HSL has done on my behalf. I feel I wasn’t able to express myself very well in our last meeting at your office and wanted to clarify. I thank you all very very much and wish you good health and much happiness!”
“Mr. Henry and his staff helped me and my family through a very devastating time. I lost two children and my wife and oldest daughter were very badly injured in the car accident. He was able to get the insurer to realize they were at fault, the value of the case and bring them to a settlement for their policy limits, much faster than I expected. His reputation, skills and excellent staff were what made the insurance company pay, so we could try to get on with what was left of our lives as a family.”
“Making the right decision is always important and when it comes to being represented by a law firm we chose right. Brad Moscato and his firm believed in our case and supported us thru a difficult time. We never felt that we were the victims he handled our case with the respect and care and in great detail. Brad Mascato and his team were always there to eliminate the worries and the result was a true win. Thank you for the victory.”

Allison H.’s Mom
“I absolutely and wholeheartedly recommend Adam Wagman, in my opinion there is not a better, more efficient or effective lawyer. He is compassionate and dedicated. He is honest and trustworthy; he kept every single promise he made to us and always went beyond the call of duty. I have nothing but the most sincere praise for him and for all his efforts on our behalf – it is because of his expertise in this field, diligence and commitment to do the very best for his clients that my parents have recovered from the accident as well as they did. The same goes for me, he was (and is) always there for me, gently and skillfully guiding me through a very difficult process, answering all my questions and addressing all my concerns. I am the sole caregiver for my parents and their only advocate and without Adam I would have been hopelessly lost. Adam and his team (I must also give credit to his amazing clerk Tania Harris) always made sure my parents were well taken care of in every sense and that their quality of life is the best it can be under the circumstances.”
Medical Malpractice Testimonials
“Howard, I want to thank you so much for sticking with us over the past 5 1/2 years during our medical malpractice law suit. Throughout our contact with you and your firm over this extended period, you have always been fully professional, courteous and promptly responsive to any of our questions. Obviously we are very pleased that the case has been satisfactorily completed. But we also thank you for making the journey as pleasant as possible, under the circumstances.”
“Excellent Choice – We were referred to Howie, Sacks & Henry by another legal representative. Very Impressive: We have nothing but gratitude & appreciation for Meghan M. Hull Jacquin’s calm, stress free demeanor & her tireless effort to push on [through discovery and mediation] to win the award my mother was so deserving of. We are truly indebted to Howie, Sacks & Henry for agreeing with Meghan to file Legal Action against an organization whose negligence caused harm to my mother.”
“Howard not only did a wonderful counsel of my case but was very kind, gentle and showed personal compassion for my right to justice. He was always available within an hour or less of a phone call or email at home or office. He made me feel I was in good hands and trust was always important to me. Howard Blitstein also contacted me 2 months ago just to see how I was doing, which brightened my day. Very classy. Howard Blitstein deserves a high commendation for his excellent qualities as an attorney and I appreciate all he has done for me. Both my husband and I applaud him with utmost respect. He is a great lawyer but also a true gentleman.”
“Once again we both want to thank you, Howard, for the sensitivity and professional due diligence you brought to the situation. That in itself has helped alleviate some of the pain associated with broken medical expectations. And we’d like you to sleep well tonight knowing that your clients think you did an outstanding job on our behalf.”
Slip and Fall Testimonials
“I did want to say my family has asked me to express their appreciation to Joel Dick, for the hard and dedicated work you put into this case over the last few years…You smashed a stereotype yesterday and I love when that happens.

Long-Term and Short-Term Disability Claims Testimonials
“My disability case was a very sensitive one, as it involved a diagnosis of mental illness. However, Howard Blitstein always treated me with respect and never made me feel like I was intellectually or emotionally incapable or inferior. Mr. Blitstein always gave me the facts and allowed me to make my own decisions. He also worked hard to settle my case, corresponding with the opposing side even during holidays. Overall I feel that I was treated like an equal human being.”
“By the time I met Brad Moscato I had been engaged in a prolonged combat with my insurer to restore my benefits. I chose Brad because he explained my case in terms of my life, my situation, and the choices I faced, not in legal terms and processes. My case was successfully resolved in less than half the time I spent battling the insurance company. Brad’s staff, especially Courntey Nevins, we very helpful and replied to my queries promptly. Brad and his team turned my nightmare into a sigh of relief.”
“I would like to thank Howie, Sacks & Henry for handling my disability claim. Your firm was recommended by a friend and now I know why. Your team allowed me to live my life again. Thank you so much.”
“I would like to express my heart-felt thank you to Brad Moscato and his team for working on my case. My case was somewhat complex and extremely stressful; Mr. Moscato and his team were very helpful and receptive while working on my case. I consider Mr. Moscato to have the three C’s. He has Character, Commitment & Compassion. Mr. Moscato made me feel at ease when he recently attended two mediations with me. We talked about our lives, which took away quite a bit of the pressure and stress that I was facing at both mediations. Mr. Moscato is a very sincere person. He was very efficient and took interest in my case, which made me feel at ease. His team is very knowledgeable and patient and I want to thank them for speaking with me. I am very pleased that I met Mr. Moscato. I will surely pass on a referral to anyone if they require his service. Once again my heart-felt thanks and appreciation.”
