John and his paralegal Summer were recommended to me by a friend after I expressed my frustration at ICBC’s unreasonable and unfair stance following a no fault collision on the highway. At first I was hesitant to even speak to a lawyer as I thought I would be pressured into legal proceedings when I simply needed advice and was not at all committed to retaining a lawyer. My preconceived ideas were immediately put to rest as on the phone John was helpful, knowledgeable, open and empathetic when he really had nothing to gain. He explained that I had 2 years to even decide about an injury claim and suggested I call him back if I continued to have pain. Boy am I glad I did! Despite having some pre-existing pain and health conditions, John made sure my settlement reflected my ongoing pain, loss of income and future issues. He is smart, professional and not someone who is easily pushed around. Most importantly for myself as a healthcare worker, he only ever encouraged me to be honest about my claim (even when it may not benefit us) and himself and Summer were there to support me every step of the way. They are interested in knowing their client and when we finally settled, I felt they were truly happy to have helped. I would not hesitate to recommend them both.
