  • Alan took my case on and immediately called my insurance company and ensured that I was receiving all benefits, including an occupational therapist to come to my house, physiotherapy, psychology, etc. I had a lot of problems from this car accident, and also with my insurance company since it would not pay for the treatment and services that my doctors and therapists felt were necessary. In the end, I received benefits my insurance company didn’t even tell me were available to me. Alan also helped me resolve that claim when I did not think that was even possible. Also, he brought a claim against the driver of a car that struck me, and ensured that this claim was also resolved. I am forever grateful to Alan – he kept me informed all the time, advised me all along the way, and kept me focused on what I needed to do throughout the process.
  • I was involved in a car accident a few years ago where I was hit by a careless driver. I had no idea what to do, I couldn't work, had to stop school and even my social life was put on hold. After my friend recommended I speak to Alan a lot changed. He made sure I got the proper support that I needed to go on everyday. Whether it was getting me an occupational therapist to assist with going back to school or making sure I got proper chiropractic treatments. I am very thankful to him and his team for making the horrible situation I was in better.
  • Alan Clausi undertook a detailed review of the facts and evidence of my case only to determine that with more effort and expert support, my case had more than enough merit to proceed. CCG Law put in the necessary work to build a strong case that eventually led to a fair settlement that was reflective of my losses to present and accounted for the future losses and medical needs. Throughout the process, Mr. Clausi was professional, keeping me well informed along the way and taking timely action to continuously advance the case. My family is endlessly grateful for his services and continue to refer all legal work his way.
  • I was in a car accident on the 417 which was not my fault. I was hit from behind while stopped in a traffic jam. My insurance company wouldn’t approve any treatment, so I called me normal family lawyer. He does not do insurance claims, so he referred me to Alan Clausi. Best move I made was to hire Mr. Clausi to help me. He brought a claim against my own insurance company to ensure that received the right treatment and benefits that I didn’t even know I was entitled to ask for. He also brought a claim for me against the person that hit my car from behind. The claims went well and Mr. Clausi worked very hard to help me. If I called him, he always returned the call or email right away. He explained things to me and made me feel that finally someone was listening to me. He helped me get through this terrible event in my life. I will always be grateful.
  • Mr. Clausi helped me settle an MVA case with an outcome better then I could of expected. He is efficient and very professional. I appreciated his quick responses and availability when ever I needed to ask a question or receive advice. If it wasn’t for Alan I would not of been able to receive the treatments that my doctors had recommended. My insurance company did not what to give me the benefits I was entitled to. Alan made sure that he got me what I needed and more. He worked hard on my case as there were a lot of details that he was always able to find a solution to. He is a professional who has compassion which is a unique quality that is rare.
  • Alan did amazing work for me. My own insurance company was totally giving me the run around, so my friend referred me to Al. My own insurance company had found me liable for the collision. Al convinced my insurance company to change their internal fault assessment which was a big relief to me. He helped get me the treatment I needed and fought for me all the way. With the insurance company for the lady that destroyed my car by racing through a red light in a snowstorm, he fought them right up to trial and finally was able to resolve my claim by sending me to the best experts in the province for opinions on my injuries, and to an expert who did a detailed accident reconstruction, showing that I was telling the truth and did nothing wrong. I was alone in this fight without any power at all and would have lost both miserably. Alan fought hard for me against all odds and obtained a fair settlement for me. I am forever indebted to Alan for his loyalty to me, his incredibly hard work, and his knowledge of what I learned is an insurance slanted system.
  • I contacted Alan Clausi because he was recommended by my health support team shortly after my MVA. He responded to me instantly and provided immediate advice and intervened with my insurer to get my needs better met right away, and that was only the beginning. At every turn and decision made during my recovery and the litigation process, he was able to predict what was going to happen beyond that point, and how we can improve the supports I was receiving. He was never more than a phone call or email away, with patience and the desire to work hard to get me the absolute best results. As we were settling my case in an arbitration, Alan turned to me and asked if I was satisfied, because if I wasn’t he was willing to take this even further. He was willing and wanted to work as hard as he needed to for me to feel satisfied with the result. I had not before and have not since met a lawyer with such an incredible ability to navigate the complex legal world that coincides with MVAs. His level of expertise and experience shows ten fold in his work and the results. Alan is an amazing lawyer who is beyond diligent, efficient and caring and I owe my complete recovery to him.
  • I will never forget all that you have done for not only me, but for my family. Your gentle push was what I needed to get me through the difficult times when I wanted to give up. It was your words of encouragement that kept me together through the past three years. You have changed our lives and for that we will be forever grateful! Because of YOU, I now have hope that eventually one day I will have a normal life without appointments and less pain. I am so thankful that our paths crossed during my time working in residential real estate, where you helped so many of our clients and now me. The relief I felt that day on the phone when I asked if you knew a good injury lawyer and you replied, I’m an injury lawyer. It was that moment, I knew things were about to make a turn for the better. When I felt like all hope was gone, you were there. Now we meet again to assist with the purchase of our first home in Ottawa. I’m so glad you are once again there to make this experience an easy one. I will at every chance recommend you to friends and people I meet. Without you in my corner taking care of things for me, I’m not sure where I’d be today. Your knowledge of the law and dedication to your clients is something I’ve never seen before. It is very evident that you are a lawyer who not only cares, but is driven to help others!

  • The most important thing for me is trust. Mr. Clausi handled my file professionally and efficiently. I felt that I was his number one priority. Furthermore, due to his cautious due diligence, he discovered that I was at risk for some legal environment paperwork requirements. He managed to fix the issue and this saved me substantial cost. If you need good service and making sure that your file is well taking care of, Al is your guy.”
  • Al was invaluable in helping me with a difficult dental claim. He was patient and responsive to all my questions and took the time to walk me through the process. Since then, my family and I have used his services for several real estate transactions and each was handled with professionalism and ease. His team consists of dedicated and hard working individuals that have only our best interest at heart.
  • Over the course of the years, I have used the services of Mr. Clausi and his associates to close 7 real estate transactions and each has been flawlessly executed. He and his staff are proactive in their approach and ensure that everything is in order days before closing. His advice has been sound and his attention to detail impeccable. In one case, Mr. Clausi's early intervention on an issue with a builder involving a building error ensured a timeline correction prior to possession. We will continue to make use of Mr. Clausi for all our legal work in the future.
