Hermie Abraham came highly recommended and after working with her I can understand why. Professional yet pleasant, her knowledge and extensive experience ensured a successful outcome in a very timely and efficient manner – simply put she knows her stuff.  I would happily recommend her to friends and colleagues

I would like to say how impressed I am with the very high standard of service you have provided during the time you have acted on my behalf to recover compensation and indeed with the level of compensation you have managed to secure for me.  You showed professionalism and kept me informed through the entire process, working tirelessly towards a resolution.  The advice you have provided has been excellent and I would not hesitate in recommending you happily to my friends and family. Many thanks for everything.

Sharon

Financial Analyst, Salary $75,000

Advocation was invaluable in helping me through a very difficult time as I was faced with the harsh reality of unemployment with minimal monetary compensation. I knew I needed the expertise of an employment lawyer. 

From our initial consultation session, Hermie listened very carefully to my issues, asked relevant questions, explained my rights, and outlined my options. She was very empathetic, sensitive and caring. Throughout the entire legal process, Hermie was clear, honest, practical and knowledgeable. She kept me well-informed of all developments and at no point did she over promise potential outcome of my case. 

Hermie managed to secure a settlement that was to my full satisfaction. I am very thankful to Hermie for her invaluable advice and guidance throughout this process. I feel very confident in recommending Hermie Abraham and Advocation Professional Corporation to anyone who finds themselves in employment-related disputes.

Dean

Human Resources Consultant, Salary $69,000

I met Hermie Abraham when she was the instructor of a Labour Relations course I took at the University of Toronto SCS. I enjoyed her class very much and was impressed by her knowledge, style and methods of managing and advising the class and she was therefore a natural choice when I came in need of an employment lawyer when I was affected by a mass-redundancy that my former employer undertook. Ms. Abraham took into account my professional and personal circumstances and outlined my specific needs to my former employer. The process was difficult as the employer was reluctant to budge given that many people had been affected by the cuts, but Ms. Abraham was tenacious on my behalf and managed to negotiate a better package that better suited my particular situation. I admire her professionalism throughout the process.

Nicky

Marketing Coordinator, Salary $56,000

We are a local firm of chartered accountants and chartered professional accountants in Toronto.  On occasion we have found ourselves in need of an employment law lawyer who is understanding of the needs of a professional services firm.

Over the years we have always found Hermie Abraham to be above reproach in her guidance and direction.  Her sensitivity to our needs, and that of our employees, has been top notch, practical and purposeful.

We have also had occasion to recommend Hermie to our clients and colleagues in other firms.  The feedback from those referrals has always been complimentary to Hermie, and to us for the recommendation.

Without any hesitation I recommend Hermie Abraham as the employment law lawyer you should choose.  No matter the circumstances Hermie will present you with the various sides to the issue, and you will be able to count on her recommendations as steadfast and practical.
