I was fortunate enough to have Jessica represent me in court. I was blown away with the amount of effort and time she put into my case and cannot thank her enough for her performance as a criminal defence lawyer. I would highly recommend her for her services!

Strange to say about an experience with a lawyer but I had a fabulous one with Jessica Read, the judge even commended her on her knowledge and work with my case. Thank you again. I would definitely recommend this firm.

I was charged with a DUI and lawyer Jessica Read was able to bargain with the Crown and get my charge altered to careless driving with a few other conditions, resulting in no criminal charge on my behalf. They were able to appear for me in court meaning I didn’t have to miss work to sort things out, which meant a lot to me. Overall great, personable team of people here driven to help and solve matters. My case turned out in the best way I could have imagined. Thank you again for what you do.

I had the pleasure and good fortune to retain Jessica Read for a serious traffic offense. From the minute I spoke with Annett and Jessica I knew I was in good hands. Jessica took my case 3 weeks before my trial and went above and beyond in every single aspect, she impressed me every single time we spoke and was available any time I had any questions or concerns. Trial Day 1: Jessica and her team had done an unbelievable amount of preparation, research and planning in such a short amount of time. At trial Jessica was methodical , knowledgeable and in court she knew what was going to transpire before anyone else. Long story short, Jessica and her amazing team picked away at the crowns case that by the end of the first day the crown threw in the towel. This firm and everyone working there treat you like family and look out for you and your best interests. If you are in need of representation there is no comparable lawyer out there. Jessica Read is the best trial lawyer in this province and most likely the country. You saved my life Jessica, my family and I will be forever indebted to you and your staff. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Dr. Hamid Noien.

I don’t even know what to say. I have hired this team 3 times. They have saved my life over and over again dropping any charges I put infront of them. I completely changed my life , and was doing really well ! In a split second, one night again I’m in need of them for a fear that I’m going to lose everything. If anyones reading this worried about who they should hire, there is no one in this country I want by my side when my life is on the line. I don’t have a criminal record because of them. And now I’m using them again to try and save my career and family. They are more than lawyers to me now, they have become part of my growth. Part of my family, and I know that they care. Dean and Jessica both just want you to safe and happy. The courts don’t care if you are a good guy working hard. Jessica and dean always have.

I cannot speak highly enough with the team over at Collett Read. I came to Jessica though Dean after another counsel told me I had to "take the deal" as there was no chance.
Not only did Jessica create such a chance, but she had me fully acquitted on the charge.
Absolutely amazing. Her and the staff
Thank you so much Jessica.

I never thought a day would come where I would have to face false allegations and be unfairly accused. It is one of the most stressful things anyone could ever go through. Dean is a very smart and kind lawyer who has a lot of experience managing difficult situations. Dean was able to put my mind at ease and make me feel comfortable throughout the whole process. He successfully executes and my charges were dropped. I will forever be grateful to Dean and his team!

When I met Dean I had an 18yr old son with some serious gun charges and Dean was just starting his career.He was completely honest with us and worked so hard with his team to get us through the whole scary process of bail,court and eventually jail. I will be forever grateful for the tuff talk Dean gave my son.And later when he got in some minor trouble and Collette-Reade had grown so much I thought Dean wouldn't remember us or want to be bothered but not so. Dean got right on it and got his team in action. He also gave my son another tuff talk.Dean is a great mentor and role model to young men. I dont know how I got so lucky to have met Dean bit I know anyone would be lucky to do business with Colette-Reade.

There are so many wonderful words that come to mind when I think of the help that Jason Alsbergas gave to myself and my son. First and foremost he listened with compassion and understanding. Secondly he went above and beyond for the pursuit of justice and peace of mind. Thirdly he displayed professionalism and empathy effortlessly! My 16 year old was before the courts and I as his mother was frightened and concerned about what to do. The BEST thing I did was contact Collett & Read. From the very beginning the treatment was nothing short of exemplary! Jason Alsbergas called me on a weekend to reassure me of the steps that would take place. He listened kindly as I cried and never made me feel like less than worthy of consideration. I had to rely on Legal Aid but, Jason/Dean never made me feel as though our case wasn't just as important as any full paying client. I know often people read reviews and are skeptical; to those I say truly you can trust your legal concerns to this team! I will forever be grateful for the help we were given. Thank you so very much for all your help and support Jason / Dean and all the office staff too. Heather
