You may already know that 2017 is Share Lawyers’ 30 year anniversary - but some of our team members are celebrating milestones of their own! We want to celebrate our staff, especially those who have been an integral part of the Share Lawyers story thus far.
Four of our team members will be marking important anniversaries over the course of this year, and we look forward to sharing these with you over the coming weeks and months in our newsletter.
Steven Muller is our VP of Litigation and will be marking his 20th year anniversary with Share Lawyers this June! We talked to Steven about his time with us.
So Steven - 20 years have passed. Can you tell us a little bit about your beginnings at Share Lawyers?
In the beginning, I joined the firm to do Examination for Discovery work. I was about to get married. It was really hard at first. We had to work on building out the practice as a team. We had just moved into our current location at 3442 Yonge Street.
When you think about the clients you've worked with, what stands out?
Every client is a privilege to work with and a new adventure. I am fortunate to have met and worked with so many interesting people who have come from many different parts of the world with differing religions and beliefs.
What's something people need to know about Share Lawyers and the work we do here?
We are constantly pushing the envelope in long term-disability disputes. We work on some very complex cases and there are many firms who are trying to imitate us - they just do not have the knowledge base and experience in long-term disability disputes. As one client recently said to me: “You guys are the car dealer and everyone else are the used car salesman.”
Can you tell us about what you like to do when you're not working? It's Sunday afternoon - where are you and what are you doing?
I walk my dog for about an hour a day, both morning and night. I exercise - spinning, rowing, floor hockey, swimming and elliptical, about three to four days a week. I also like to garden. I enjoy the time I get to spend with my children and my wife, and I love to host our friends and family.
What do you hope for the next five years?
Well, let’s take it one week at a time!
Well said, Steven. Congratulations again!
Share Lawyers wouldn’t be able to help clients the way we do without our wonderful team of lawyers and staff, including Steven.

A note from our long term disability lawyers
Taking a medical leave from work is not an easy decision to make. Concerns about providing for yourself and your family and keeping your job may cause you to want to push through your pain, but this won’t make your problems go away. Stopping work is often the smartest decision for your long term health and well-being, and your disability benefits are there to provide you with financial support until you can return to work.
If you have made the tough decision to stop working and apply for your short term disability or long term disability benefits, you may feel overwhelmed by the process and have questions that your employer and your insurance company are not able or willing to answer. Share is There to see you through and answer your questions.
Our Disability law firm knows what you have been going through
We understand that things have not been easy for you over the last little while. Your health has been suffering, you are unable to work, and now your insurance company, who was supposed to be there in your time of need, has decided they will not pay your disability benefits or respect your disability claim. These benefits exist to provide you with the financial support you need so that you can focus on your health and rebuilding your life. It is unfortunate that your insurance company has not lived up to its promise. If your disability claim has been denied, we will fight to get you the benefits you are entitled to. Our disability lawyers have helped thousands of Canadians get their long term disability benefits over the past 35 years, and we can help you too.
Our experienced disability lawyers can fight back on your behalf
Share Lawyers believes that every client who is dealing with a disability claim deserves superior personal service. To achieve that goal, we have developed our team of experienced, compassionate, and caring long term disability lawyers, law clerks, and administrative staff to meet all of your needs. Our team of experienced long term disability, life insurance, employment, and critical illness insurance lawyers have made successful claims against many insurance companies, third-party administrators and employers.
If you are unable to work, your disability benefits should be there to provide you with the financial support you need. While your insurance company may be focused on finding ways to avoid paying your claim, our focus is on what is in your best interest. When Share Lawyers gets involved, you have an entire team of lawyers that are there to support you and to fight for what is yours.
Our disability claim lawyers fight for your disability insurance claim by relying on our many years of experience to apply the best strategic planning and approach in each case, using the latest technology available. Experience matters, and with Share Lawyers, you are in the best hands with 35 years of success on your side.
In this video, we explain the role of a long term disability lawyer and how we can support you when you have been denied your long term disability benefits.
