Ryan, I am still in a bit of shock that this has been wrapped up (and favourably). We cannot put into words how much this means to us. This was almost two years of agony for us. To be accused of something so heinous, that you did not do…it was beyond awful. You were fantastic to have as our lawyer and if anyone I know ever finds themselves in need of a lawyer, I will be highly recommending you, and your firm. Our case was not an easy one and you handled it perfectly. Please tell Michael we greatly appreciate his help as well.


I have dealt with B.C. lawyers for forty years in every professional capacity. Michael Mines, Mines and Company Law, stands above the rest and is to be commended for providing me (and my family) with prompt, professional and proficient defence in a complex white collar criminal case involving accusations over a decade ago including, but not limited to,  thousands of pages of evidence, convoluted financial transactions and personal and corporate  bankruptcy implications. Mr. Mines is particularly adept in dealing with Crown Counsel. Mr. Mines skilled and specialized legal experience is to be highly praised and much applauded by his clientele and peers.


I would like to say “thank you very much” for helping me getting through this chaotic time of my life. You handled my case with expert care and resolved it in a manner positively in my favor. I am very grateful for not getting a criminal record. You are very professional and knowledgeable and for that I would highly recommend your firm. Again, thank you very much!


I was recently charged with a driving offence. A friend recommended Mines and Company. Michael took my case and was very clear in his intention to help me and was great in explaining the law. He made many court appearances on my behalf so I didn’t have to miss work or get involved with the court proceedings. Ultimately he got the charges dropped and I plead guilt to a lesser (Motor Vehicle Act) charge. Dealing with him was a positive experience. I would definitely highly recommend this law firm.


I had a big problem with the law with an assault charge. I checked some lawyers and found Mines and Company to be excellent. Right away they made me feel very comfortable and was told not to worry. They were right and work hard with the Crown. When all was done, I had no criminal charge against me. I thank them for all their great work. I do a lot of travelling and as you know, you need a passport to do this. Thanks a lot Mines and Company. Great job!


Thanks to Mr. Mines, what could have been a costly and traumatic legal issue was resolved in a professional timely manner. I would not hesitate to use Mines and Company for any future legal issues and highly recommend this law firm.


Michael Mines represented me in an alleged Aggravated Assault case. My experience working with Michael was very positive as he listened to me and was completely diligent. Michael was professional in his case research, which resulted in the charges being reduced to Assault Causing Bodily Harm. Furthermore, Michael convinced the Crown and the Court that my character reflected that I was not a risk to society nor my family. The case resulted in a positive outcome as I was given a conditional discharge with minimal conditions. This allowed me to continue living in Canada as a Permanent Resident and allowed me to  rebuild my relationship with my children, and continue serving in my community in various youth programs. I am very grateful for Michael’s professional representation and service.  I would recommend him to others who are facing serious allegations that need fair and expert representation.


Ryan, thank you for your firm’s work in assisting C.H. It was the outcome that we hoped for.


I didn’t hire Mines & Company, but my husband did.  I am soooo thankful that he did!  These men laid their talent on the line to make sure my hubby didn’t spend a day more than he deserved!  I’m not saying that my husband was innocent, I’m saying these gentlemen had their work cut out for them and they did their job. Freedom of spirit is not free!!! Anybody who thinks that is a fool. Nobody walks away free, Lets get real and man for what you deserve, And you will with these gentlemen! Thank you Ryan, stupidity is plain, arrogance is vain, but intelligence is key!!! Thank you for using it!!


Mr. Mines, Thank you for your hard work and dedication to your profession and clients.


Michael, Thanks so much for everything. S is really pleased and humbled by the outcome of her day in court, as are we. We greatly appreciate your careful thought on an appropriate approach and your support throughout this process.

Hi Ryan/Michael, I would just like to give you both a big thank you and comment on my relationship with Mines Law through this very difficult time for myself and my family. At the start of this scary time I would like to thank you Michael for your flexibility regarding payment. We were caught off guard and without your flexibility I shudder to think of where we would be at now. Ryan, I would like to thank you for the wisdom, kindness and sincere empathy that you exhibited all the way through this whole process. This was unexpected and truly appreciated. The experience was more like working with a close friend than a lawyer. Again, I would like to thank you both for your guidance and positive resolution of this matter.
