Farewell to three of our most cherished team members

In one of my former jobs many years ago, we were all called in by the boss. His words : “you’re all replaceable!” stuck  in my head as the phrase to never use of you’re a business owner. If you’re hiring people that are “replaceable”, you’re a moron.

When I opened up Assiff Law Office, Io made certain to do the exact opposite: hire people that are irreplaceable. That is the reason for our success in a nutshell. This summer, we will go through unprecedented turnover and will lose some truly irreplaceable folks:

Mary Mcveetors, a girl who gave away her kidney to a stranger and effectively saved his young life, is moving to Ontario; Hiba Khan and Rayelle Johnson are heading to law school.Ladies, we wish you all the best and thank you so much for all of your hard work, dedication and commitment and personality you bring to Assiff Law Office and our beloved clients.

Here are a few words about Mary, Hiba and Rayelle


Mary McVeetors

Mary  worked diligently as a legal assistant. Her work was exceptional to the point where we relied on Mary to train new staff


Rayelle Johnson

Rayelle started off as our receptionist and was so good on phones but demonstrated exceptional skills and speed and was quickly moved to legal assistant where she served clients diligently and with amazing efficiency 


Hiba Khan

As our file clerk, Hiba not only performed many office errands but demonstrated such diligence and intelligence that we were very comfortable in having her assist with a paralegal tasks which she learned in no time 

You will be missed because, like all of our staff, you are not only good citizens, you are irreplaceable.
