“Invaluable advice…”

David Himelfarb has been the corporate lawyer for Forest Hill Real Estate Inc. since he incorporated the company on March 1st, 1985.

Forest Hill Real Estate Inc., commenced operations with two agents working out of a small office on Lonsdale Avenue, in Forest Hill Village, in Toronto. The company has grown to 18 offices in Ontario, with 750 agents.

David has provided our company and a large number of our agents, and clients, with invaluable advice that we have heavily relied upon at very critical times. Not only is David steeped in a thorough understanding of real estate and business law, he also displays an uncanny and innate understanding of human nature and psychology. David has assisted and been at our side through every stage of expansion of the company. He has been involved with strategic planning, contract negotiations, as well as dispute resolutions. He is the consummate professional and a pleasure to work with.

David has a no nonsense approach and he tells us exactly what we need to know without dancing around the issue.

In those cases where David did not undertake the specific legal task at hand, he made certain that we found just the right legal practitioner or other professional to assist; and, David stayed involved in the process to completion to ensure that there were no loose ends. It was a great comfort and of great assistance to have someone at our side who personally cared about the outcome of the matter.

I am able to recommend David, and the services he offers, without reservation and in the absolute knowledge that any client will be well served with David’s advice and assistance in resolving any legal problem.

I have known David Himelfarb for a very long time and I know him to be a very passionate, devoted, intelligent, honest and creative individual and lawyer.

“Your honest advice was invaluable in me making a decision”

Thank you so much for getting back to me right away. Your honest advice was invaluable in me making a decision.

Your website is wonderful and the service you provide, in my opinion, is what is solely needed in your profession.

You are what us “lay people” need – straight honest answers without the legal mumbo-jumbo terminology that we don’t understand.

Again, thank you so so much.



“At our sides for decades.”

David has been our lawyer for decades and has been at our side during all of our legal dealings.

David has navigated us through business ventures, including consulting agreements with Loblaws, book publishing contracts with Random House, and dispute resolutions with third parties, as well as multi-generational estate planning for our family, and strategic business planning. He has been an invaluable source of knowledge and guidance with respect to the legal system and legal issues. David understands people better than anyone we know.

There is no question that David will be of great value to anyone dealing with a legal issue. He knows the system, he knows the issues and he knows the hidden pitfalls that clients can fall into if not properly advised or prepared.

David has the perspective that only experience and an innate understanding of people can bring to a problem.
