I, Mary Larson on behalf of my daughter would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge David Hobbs and Staff for their outstanding work and accomplishment regarding my daughter’s Medical Malpractice Case. In view of the multiple issues a difficult case of this nature presents, Mr. Hobbs remained steadfast providing superior advocacy and service to his client. We highly recommend the Firm: Hobbs Giroday: Barristers / Solicitors
Collection and enforcement of a foreign judgment
I thank you most sincerely for all your help in this matter. I spoke to my advocate at his Isle of Man law firm and they were very appreciative of the successful outcome in this matter.
Hobbs and Giroday helped me through a challenging 28-month litigation with honest advice and support. The experience and professionalism was evident from the first phone call to receiving the settlement. They offered their opinion, while supporting me to make my own decisions. My lawyer David and his team were consistently quick to respond to my emails and phone calls. I’m sure I got a better outcome because I went with Hobbs and Giroday and I would recommend them to others in a similar situation.

I appreciate greatly the gentle approach to my problem and the reassurance often given. My lawyer, Ian, acted quickly to my queries and was able to bring my case to a satisfactory conclusion without subjecting me to an appearance in court, which I very much appreciated also.
David and Tim Edgeworth
“From the beginning Hobbs & Giroday impressed us with the content of their advice, attentive professional manner, their clarity of purpose and their overall strategic simplicity. We were particularly impressed with the candid discussions and timely advice so generously provided despite the intimidating tyranny of distance and the awkwardness of time zones. One of the most refreshing aspects in dealing with Hobbs & Giroday was their willingness to explore all the options which builds that binding trust that you are in good hands.
We can say unreservedly that Hobbs & Giroday and the team that supports their office provided the comfort, trust, simplicity and positive attitude we were seeking to manage, challenge the arguments and determine the best outcome.
It has been a journey of some 20 months, but we could not have asked for more at journeys end and we were not disappointed with any aspect of the process.
Even though the relationship was professional we would like to think that we have a friendly face and a phone number to ring when we are next in Vancouver, and be assured reciprocation will, with affection be extended in our country.
There are many nice words and phrases in the English language, appreciation, well done, very happy, to name a few, but one of the nicest ways is to select two of the most gracious words in our language, they are the words “Thank You” and they are offered to Hobbs & Giroday and your team with sincerity.”
Tim and David Edgeworth, Australia
“I am both pleased and satisfied with the outcome of the mediation. I have appreciated not only Hobbs Giroday’s expertise, but insight and sensitivity concerning this most difficult family matter. Having your support was encouraging and affirming. It felt great to be part of a team!
I would not hesitate to recommend Hobbs Giroday to others.”
“I had the misfortune of having to challenge a will because of my friends lack of mental capacity and undue influence by her second husband and his lawyer.
I was referred to David Hobbs, met with him and together formulated a course of action that was successful.
Mr. Hobbs was tactful and expeditious. I was always kept informed of progress and procedures in a timely manner. Being able to communicate via e mail was very beneficial.
The case was resolved to my satisfaction without having to go through the lengthy and costly court process. I appreciate his assistance.”

“When my business clients need to establish their legal position, I call Hobbs Giroday. Each member of the firm is knowledgeable, experienced, diligent and responsible. They provide good legal advice in a timely manner with a sound dose of common sense.”
Norman Q. Chow, Business Lawyer
“As a New York resident who needed help with a situation in Vancouver, I asked my attorney to recommend someone who could handle this for me, with as much clout as possible. Yet after he did his homework, a partner in the top law firm from Vancouver recommended David Hobbs and his firm without hesitation; saying that David Hobbs was effective and had a wonderful reputation for getting along with any and all with whom he came into contact.
Not only did David Hobbs deliver beyond what I expected, but did so in a manner that was calming and reassuring to me. I guess the way David Hobbs practices law does not require a lot of noise, but enough poise. New York lawyers could take a lesson from your demeanour and style”.

“A couple of years ago my wife and I got caught up as defendants in a small claims proceeding. Having no experience of any sort in these sorts of processes, a good friend recommended David Hobbs to us. Although I am sure David had “much bigger fish to fry” he patiently listened to our distress and provided some quick strategic guidance to frame our options for some “to and fro” in pre-trial conferences. Based on David’s advice we made several concerted attempts on our own to settle the claim, with the confidence to stick to our guns when those attempts bordered on the absurd.
Eventually, the matter went to trial, twice! The claim was dismissed at the first trial because the claimants failed to show. The claimants appealed and managed to get a second trial date. At trial David provided simple, soundly based support, all delivered in a friendly, non-confrontational style which carried the day again – this time with finality, and we could put this “cat of 9 lives” behind us for good.
Throughout the process David and the office staff were friendly and efficient, two qualities not always associated with the legal profession.”
