I was very relieved to speak with Jeff Mitchell regarding his perspective on a current litigation case. I am grateful for his quick response and providing a consultation in a highly, timely manner. Jeff is very professional, attentive, knowledgeable and understanding. He provided valuable information about the litigation process and different scenarios we may experience that helped us become more confidently engaged in the process. I would highly recommend Nova Injury Law! Thanks Jeff.

I have never been involved in an MVA before, and it can be a scary thing. So blessed to have Jeff and his team help me through the process of settling my claim. Jeff is very professional, dedicated, and has his clients best interests at heart. He is not afraid to push for what he knows his clients deserve, very knowledgeable. Great communication always, and I am very happy with the way everything was settled. If you need someone to represent you, I would highly recommend Jeff and his team, you will not be disappointed!!

We are from the Philippines but a Perment Resident here in Halifax, Canada, but the warmth acceptance from the Lawyers is very great. They accepted us despite of the financial reasons we can’t afford a lawyer service. They were there to help us and uplift us with our circumstances. Updates us and always there to listens. Frank,in a tactful way, in explaining what is going to happen and what will be the process be. Great working with you.

Jeff and every team member I have talked to have always been kind, considerate and caring. This is my first time ever dealing with a law firm and NOVA Injury Law has helped me turn a horrific situation around. Jeff called me the first time in his way home from work and has called on weekends too. They truly take pride in helping you.

Jeff and his team demonstrated the pinnacle of service, compassion, and dedication to our mutual goal. Being a young professional I have worked with lawyers and law firms in various capacities and I can say with confidence: Jeff sets a standard for straight talk and clear direction. I felt that our interests were aligned, and that he worked diligently on my behalf. Every aspect of the process was fair, well communicated, and transparent. I was kept informed about all details surrounding my case. I would recommend Jeff to anyone needing direction and representation relating to injury law.

Jeff and his team are amazing. Jeff worked on my case for about three years and through all of it I felt supported, heard, and cared for throughout it all. I highly recommend Jeff and his team to anyone. They make a stressful experience a lot easier and make sure you are well informed through the whole process.

I’ve been working with this firm for 4-5 years. Anytime I had any questions or was unsure of anything they took the time to help me understand and answer all of my questions. They have made a hard situation as easy for me as they could. This firm has been amazing!
