I consulted with Riley and would definitely recommend him and this firm. Quick response rate, reliable and supportive. Really felt he provided helpful advice when it was needed. Definitely recommend reaching out as soon as you are let go from a company before having contact with your employer.

I can't thank Watson Palmer Law enough for the help and advice I received from them. As a union steward crafting my first ever long term disability appeal for one of our members, I received very honest and helpful direction from Riley Palmer, and am happy to say we won back benefits for our member. This is life changing for that union member! Thank you so much, Riley and Maddy!

Riley Palmer and his team were true professionals that treated my family and I with compassion and respect during a difficult ordeal. With all of my work experience, I thought I was prepared for any interview. I was proved wrong by Riley when he prepared me properly for every interview I endured. My case was successfully concluded by Watson Palmer Labour Law. I would recommend this firm for employment/labour issues.
