R. vs. F.S. – North Vancouver Provincial Court

Charge: Theft Under $5000.

Issue: Whether Crown could prove the number and value of the electronic devices they alleged our client stole from his workplace.

Result: Mr. Mines was able to persuade Crown counsel to allege that the theft involved  only 7 devices worth only $1000. After hearing Mr. Mines submissions, the Court granted our client a conditional discharge. No criminal conviction.


I was charged for fraud under $5000 in September 2018 and I hired Mr. Mines to work on my case. He did his best, and got my charges dropped before the Christmas holidays because he wanted me to feel relaxed during Christmas. He is absolutely a professional, responsible, and understanding lawyer. Before I hired him, I talked to couple of other lawyers. Not only was their fee higher, but also the way they talked to me, I felt like my situation was hopeless. But as soon as I talked to Mr. Mines, he assured me that he would find a solution. Every time I called him  to ask about the progress of my case, he kindly answered me. In all, Mr. Mines has great sense of responsibility, humanity and is a total professional. I was really happy to have chosen him to represent me. I feel like he saved my life!  Now, a year later, I called him to request that the police destroy my “non-conviction” record and Mr. Mines  kindly agreed to do this for no extra fee.
