Charles is amazing. He handled my divorce efficiently and professional and put up with some craziness on my part. Would definitely recommend!
A friend recommended Osuji & Smith to me. Charles knew what he needed to do to sort out my issues. He is professional, detailed, patient, competent and gets the job done. I highly recommend Charles and his law firm, Osuji & Smith.
As a small business owner, my resources are very limited and when I needed legal counsel, Charles did his very best to work around that and help me as best he could. I would send him emails on the weekend expecting a reply during business hours the following week, and he would surprise me with prompt replies that weekend, even when he wasn’t supposed to be working. I cannot thank him enough for everything he has helped me with and will be using him exclusively. I have had unpleasant experiences in the past with Lawyers but having worked with Charles, he has changed my opinion and I unequivocally trust him and his council. He has certainly won me over. Thank you so much again, Charles. I won’t hesitate to recommend your services to anyone else.
After I had a very serious accident, I hired Charles Osuji at Osuji & Smith to assist me with my personal injury/insurance claim. Seeking Charles’ legal assistance was one of the best decisions I have ever made. He is very brilliant, efficient, capable and knowledgeable. Also, he is very professional and I trust him greatly. He has a bright future ahead of him.
Someone introduced me to Charles Osuji of Osuji & Smith Lawyers (previously known as Smith Law Office) after a series of disappointments with my previous lawyer. Initially, I was skeptical considering my bad experiences with my previous lawyer (and Charles’ youthful looks did not help matters!). However, after he successfully handled my matter, his high level of professionalism and ability to get results quickly laid those fears to rest. Most importantly, he, once again, restored my confidence in the legal. Thank you, Charles, and keep up the good work. I do not hesitate to recommend Osuji & Smith to anyone looking for a good law firm for their matter.
Charles and I worked together on an employment issue. I have to admit I was skeptical at first because he looked young; however, after deciding to hire him to represent me with my issue, I came to the quickest realization that he had that tenacious and calm composure that I needed for my matter. Safe to say, I was a very happy client. Also, I learnt that looking young does not mean you are not competent. Charles is very competent in his field and I see him and his reputation going places within the legal society in Alberta. I highly recommend Charles and his firm, Osuji & Smith Lawyers. Do not think twice in taking him on as your counsel in the future.

I am impressed with his knowledge of the law, enthusiasm and willingness to go the extra mile for his clients. I would strongly recommend him and his firm, Osuji & Smith Lawyers, to anyone who is looking for legal services.”

“I worked with Charles on an Employment case in 2015 and had a very positive experience then. His professionalism was unmatched. Hence, I had to work with him again on a Family Dispute.

Congratulations on having your name on the door, and ultimately buying out the firm; it speaks loudly to the dedication of your craft. Thank you once again!”
