Ben and his team were an absolute pleasure to work with. The amount of care and passion they put into the work that they do needs to recognized. The warm smiley greetings from the lovely girl at the front desk when you arrive also was very comforting when your going through such hard times. One thing I loved most about working with Ben and his team was that no call I made ever went unanswered. He always took my calls right away or called back within the hour and that’s the kind of service you should want! Thank you again Ben and team!!
I first reached out to Ben Tarnow with a few resignation questions. He helped evaluate my situation and when was the best timing for a departure. A couple years later, I engaged with Ben again. He was quick to respond, explained clearly what options were available, beyond what was presented, then followed up. Our dialogue was open, easing my stress since Ben’s positive and professional actions were genuinely in my best interest. I’ve recommended Ben to a couple friends, as his service was stellar.
Ben is not only greatly well-versed in employment law, but also highly professional and prompt in his communication methods. Every interaction I’ve had with him has been on point and allowed me to make an informed decision. I wouldn’t hesitate to collaborate with him again in the future. If you’re seeking out a legal professional, look no further as you’d be in the best possible hands here!
I used the legal services of Mr. Ben Tarnow. He listened to me and his prompt follow-ups were efficient and professional. Recommend to anyone in the stressful situation where I were.
Had the pleasure of working with David Goldberg, who was very professional and extremely knowledgeable. He truly recognizes his client’s needs and works hard to make their lives better.
Had a good experience with this firm and Ben Tarnow. Administration was quick and responsive to my initial requests, as well as a pleasure to work with. Ben was also extremely responsive and offered solid, practical, down-to-earth advice on working with my toxic work environment and guided me on negotiating a reasonable severance package as well as reviewing the package and answering all my questions. Would highly recommend this firm for anyone needing prompt and realistic work place legal advice.
David was so nice and helpful, I had such a great experience with him. Would recommend working with him to anyone!
A pleasure dealing with Kevin and Brian. It was a long road but in the end, it all worked out very well.
Ben is a straight shooter, honest and understanding. Highly recommend.
Ben was supportive throughout my case. I am very pleased with the level of service and with the outcome! I would recommend Ben to anyone seeking legal counsel.
To find a lawyer is easy, to find one that will go the extra mile is very hard. I went with Taylor Blair because from the moment i met with them i knew they would fight for me. The settlement they got me was exactly where they said it would be and while i was stressed during the process they were not and knew what they were doing !
I received a very kind, thoughtful, and highly professional service from Brian and the firm. I would recommend Brian without any hesitation to anyone.
I googled employment lawyer as I needed advice, knowledge and experience!!! I found this from the kind receptionist Barbara to the professional and courteous Ben. I am satisfied with information and guidance that Ben gave. I will be glad to recommend him to anyone who is need of an employment lawyer.
I’ve worked with Ben on more than one occasion. He has been professional, personable and extremely efficient. I continue to recommend him to anyone that needs a lawyer!
I reached out to Ben for a consultation as well as afterwards with some follow-up questions and he took the time to provide thoughtful and professional advice! Was pleased with the service!
Ben helped me out a few years ago when my out-of-province employer terminated me and refused to pay severance or outstanding wages. He suggested a path that made me whole– it was the right path to take for my case.
I would highly recommend Ben Tarnow at Taylor & Blair. I found him to be very knowledgeable, supportive and quick to respond.
Ben has provided invaluable legal advice for us in the management of occasional employment issues which have arisen in our small business. He is to the point and efficient, helping us to solve issues effectively and get back to doing what we do best. Thank you so much.
I greatly appreciated Mr. Tarnow’s professionalism and assistance and would not hesitate to recommend him to others. His timeliness, follow-up, and knowledge are top-notch.
Ben walked me through the different scenarios and options I had regarding my rights and what the outcome would look like for each. He was extremely thorough and knowledgeable and provided me with the encouragement and confidence I needed to handle the situation to the best of my ability. Ben made sure to make time for my legal requests and I cannot thank him enough, I truly appreciated his approach and professionalism! Thank you for your help and guidance Ben! Keep up the great work that you do.
I had a good experience working with Ben. He was my lawyer in a case which took time about 6 months and I won that case with his help. He is a good choice.
Great experience dealing with Ben Tarnow. Very knowledgeable and helpful employment lawyer. Highly recommend to anyone looking for assistance in resolving any employment-related challenges.
Thank you Ben, your input helped me feel more confident in approaching management for employment contract amendments. We were successful with requested changes for clarity and employment security.
Excellent service from Ben re employment contract! Very responsive, always seeking the best outcomes for me. Highly recommended.
I did a lot of research and spoke to many lawyers over a few months. I chose Ben Tarnow to represent me for many reasons. He was the most responsive, straight forward, supportive, factual, respective of time, and most authentic lawyer I have ever worked with. I believe I came out on top and didn’t have to compromise any of my principles thanks to him. I will not hesitate to consider him on any future need for having legal representation.
Ben is a great lawyer and will hear you out. Certainly a huge help in such a troubling time for our family. <3
I’ve had individual consultation sessions with Ben Tarnow several times, and he (and the staff at Taylor & Blair) have been nothing short of outstanding. Unlike other lawyers I’ve seen, Ben always explains things clearly but while mentioning the applicable caveats. He communicates promptly and is always very transparent in his dealings. You can tell that he has your best interest at heart. A huge thanks to Ben & team!
Spoke to David and he was extremely helpful in assisting me with all the knowledge/information I need to more forward. Thanks David!
Ben Tarnow has handled a couple of issues for me over the last four years in different areas of law. I have found him to be effective, kind and knowledgeable. Ben took me through one of the most difficult situations in my life and made it manageable, providing different options and the likely results at each step of the process. If you are looking for a lawyer who listens and can take you through the maze of the legal process in a competent manner, I highly recommend Ben Tarnow of Taylor and Blair LLP.
I dealt with Mr. Tarnow and he was a pleasure to work with. Very professional and proactive, I also learned a lot from him along the process. He dealt with everything and left me at ease after every phone call. Highly recommended!!
I received employment advice I didn’t like from another lawyer. I went to Taylor & Blair and spoke with David Goldberg for a second opinion. He took the time to go through the issues with me and gave me solid advice I could count on. Would recommend his services without hesitation.
When I recently lost my job, it was Ben Tarnow who was the first employment lawyer who called me back after business hours, despite the fact that he was in court working on another client case that week. His consistent communication via text and email, honest guidance, and diligence throughout the process on my behalf, helped convinced me he was the right counsel to represent me against my former employer. I highly recommend Ben Tarnow at Taylor & Blair for the handling of employment case law issues.
I worked with Ben Tarnow on my wrongful dismissal case.
He was very efficient , professional and easy to work with.
His confidence level is comforting and I was very happy with my out of court settlement.
Thanks again Ben!
Taylor and Blair are highly professional lawyers, Ben Taylor in particular who I retained was very professional,, courteous and knowledgeable.

I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking legal advise.
I am grateful for Ben’s professionalism and knowledge in my employment issue. He has an exceptional commitment to his clients and truly cares about your case. At every step of the way, he helped me feel confident in my understanding of the process and options available to me and took the time to answer all my questions.
Ben has been helping me navigate a difficult situation and I feel very grateful to have connected with him. He’s extremely knowledgeable, helpful and supportive. I cannot recommend his firm highly enough.
Enjoyed working with Mr. Ben Tarnow on an Employment contract. I found him knowledgable, responsive and caring. And those are all the right qualities one needs to see in professional engagements with Lawyers. I would not hesitate referring him to my friends and family!
David, Leslie, and the rest of their team were a pleasure to have represent me over a long 7 years. They have the amazing skill of balancing professionalism while providing genuine care for their clients. I always felt like my concerns were heard and my questions were answered. If I ever reached out, they would always respond promptly and thoughtfully. If I ever suggested something I thought would be needed to aid me in my recovery, they were always supportive and would fight with me to receive that treatment. Overall, they were a very bright light in a dark time, and I could not thank them enough.
As an employer, I appreciated the high quality service provided by David and his firm. Everything was handled professionally and in a timely manner. I would absolutely use David and his Team again in the future.

We use Taylor and Blair for our business. We have always received great service and support from Dave Goldberg and Ben Tarnow. We highly recommend and refer them whenever possible.
Ben is a professional who listens, cares and is very attentive.
Brian Jacobson and Leslie Harber always went above and beyond to make sure I felt safe, and always understood what was happening, no matter how many times it took to explain. They always do what is best for me and my needs. They are always accessible, thorough and kind. They fought the professional battles (at a safe distance from my anxiety to my great relief). I would not have gotten through this difficult process in one piece without them both.
Ben and his team did a tremendous job for me. He went above and beyond my expectations and provided excellent service at an excellent value. I would not hesitate to retain his services again in the future.

Ben is the best lawyer that I ever met. He actually cares and listens to my case patiently. He plans out what is best for me. I would definitely recommend Ben to anyone I know for employment claims.
Outstanding service from Ben resulting in a great outcome. Highly recommended.
Lost my job due to company layoffs. Needless to say, it’s a traumatic and stressful process as I felt I was under compensated adequately for the years I worked for my company and decided to seek legal advice. I’ve consulted different law firms and was most impressed by Ben who comes very highly recommended. He’s very responsive, punctual and most importantly, he is very honest and trustworthy. Due to the complexity of my case, he advised me to hold back on legal proceedings until he did more research. He called me back the following day to not pursue the case because he won’t take on work he doesn’t believe will benefit me – and he didn’t even charge me for all that! I can never thank Ben adequately for his generosity and his professionalism.
Outstanding service! I had very little time and they were able to help me quickly. I was never waiting around to hear back. Always responded quickly, talked to real people fast, no automated answering service. Helped me get everything i could for a settlement. I will be using them again if needed.
Mr Ben Tarnow had been very helpful. He answered all my questions promptly and very patient I will highly recommend Mr Tarnow as your lawyer
I needed some advice and Ben was so quick to respond and knowledgeable to how to handle my situation. He was able to explain concisely what I was and was not entitled to. Ben definitely made a difficult and awkward situation slightly easier.
I needed help with a matter for my disabled uncle and was offered direct information in a compassionate manor, with links sent to me via email and without so much as even being asked for a consultation fee. This 👏 THIS is how you help people and dispel any negative preconceived notions about lawyers the public may have. Hats off to Ben and his firm for being human first and lawyers second.
Ben was very responsive and helpful and gave honest advice about my end of employment offer.
Ben was not only prompt, he was thorough, sincere and considerate. An excellent experience and I would highly recommend.
Ben has a good-hearted, I can feel it he cares, and he is smart too! He gave advice and support, he follows up, I am so touched and grateful for his help.
Highly recommend! David and Ben were easy to talk to and professional. They helped me when I returned from Maternity leave and my employer tried to use the pandemic to keep me from returning to work. Anyone having employment issues should call Taylor & Blair right away!
I was very impressed with the knowledge and professionalism of Ben Tarnow’s law firm. I was very happy that he followed up constantly with me. I never had to call him to know what was going on. My case moved very expediently and am very grateful of the outcome. I would highly recommend him to anyone in a similar predicament, and would definitely call on him again if need be. Dawn S.
I contacted Ben after I had been dismissed from my position after 30 years of service. Ben was thorough, highly informative, and professional through all of our interactions. At first, I thought that my case was hopeless – however, after meeting with Ben, and going over all of my documents and the circumstances of my termination, I learned that there was recourse available. What I really appreciated about Ben’s practice is how methodical and organized he is. He explained every step of the process and what my options were. Ultimately, Ben was able to secure an excellent settlement for me without litigation. I am grateful for the time and effort he spent on my case, and would highly recommend his services if you find yourself in need of an employment lawyer.

Be was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. If you have any employment legal issue I would strongly recommend Ben. To start he replied fast, I contacted other lawyers and most of them never even bother to call me back.
Ben not only contacted me back but helped me find the best solution for my case. I could not recommend him enough.
