Dealing with a workplace injury can be overwhelming and frightening—but needing legal help in the aftermath doesn’t have to be.
Gail Sharma, principal lawyer at GKS Law Firm, says her team is committed to making sure that each and every client feels safe, is well informed, and receives top-notch legal representation. In fact, it’s enshrined in the firm’s motto: a dedicated work injury law firm by your side, from beginning to end.
“I’ve always known my strength was in advocacy for others and helping people,” says Sharma. “That’s exactly what we do here, every day. We are totally dedicated to helping our clients.”
The firm focuses exclusively on workplace injuries. “Focusing on Workers’ Compensation law gives us an edge compared to other firms that may or may not have that level of knowledge and experience. We’re able to adapt quickly to changes in the system which helps our clients.”
The GKS team includes Sharma, associate lawyer Jesse Guenther and legal assistant Raveena Dhindsa, who have a combined 16 years of experience in the field.
“I founded GKS Law Firm specifically to bring together lawyers that were interested in this unique area of law and wanted to help injured workers,” she says. “We are passionate about this work.”
This focus on excellence in both law and in client care has given the firm a sterling reputation as leaders in this arena—which helps new clients find them more easily and to feel secure about choosing the firm to represent them.
“These kinds of cases can be very difficult times in a person’s life, and one of our goals is to reduce the stress and anxiety of the entire process,” she says. “As a result of these injuries, people’s lives can be turned upside down and they may not know if they are being fairly compensated. They also may not know what to do next to be sure the process works for them. This is all while trying to heal from their injuries at the same time. Our job is to focus on the legal side of their situation to allow them to focus on their healing.”
GKS Law Firm is based in Burnaby, with a second office on the other side of the Fraser River in Surrey, but the firm’s reputation draws clients from around the entire province.
“We’re able to represent people no matter where they live by using technology to connect with them conveniently and easily,” she says. And regardless of the type of injury or where they live, the goal is the same for each and every client: to provide top-notch service and expertise at every step of the process.
“Excellence really comes down to doing first class work, every day, for every client,” she says. “We really pour our heart and soul into this work, and it’s not just a job for us, it’s our passion.
We are deeply focused on giving our best and focusing on each client as an individual.”
GKS Law Firm offers free consultations to help people determine if legal representation is right for their individual situation.
