Heydary Hamilton is a firm with exceptional integrity and the highest level of expertise. Mr. Heydary and his competent staff of attorneys and legal experts has provided our group of plaintiffs the opportunity to pursue our case against all odds. For more than six years Heydary Hamilton has meticulously sought the evidence and litigated for us in Canadian courts regarding the fraud that was committed against us when we lost over a million of dollars of our life savings through a fraudulent scheme in Canada.

If you are an American and need to be represented in Canada, our group of twelve plaintiffs recommend Heydary Hamilton as one of Canada’s elite law firms.
