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.

I hired Michael after running into issues, not only was Michael professional, we won the case. I would recommend Michael for any criminal law matters in Canada, this man knows his stuff. He was able to prevent me from going to jail, even though a warrant was out for me, he was able to get it executed even without me going to jail and no fingerprint and mugshots. Armed with video evidence and knowledge of the law, we were able to get the case dismissed and no criminal record. Michael kept me informed through the process and telling me what my options were at each stages of the process. At the end, truth prevailed and we won. After the case was dismissed, he got the court and VPD to remove all records. He then recommended me to another lawyer to handle some immigration issues I ran into as a result of being accused of assault. Also I can go now travel and work in Canada without any issues.

Just wanted to thank Mr. Mines and everyone involved in L’s case and wonderful resolution! We are all so grateful and appreciate your efforts and faith in our son as a person. All the best, and congratulations on an excellent job!

I can’t thank Ryan enough for his work on my assault case. Early one morning I was unexpectedly thrust into the criminal system and found myself overwhelmed and highly stressed by what was happening. Literally an hour after being released from jail I found Mineslaw through search engine and met with Ryan the next day. Throughout my case Ryan was compassionate to my situation and reassuring of a positive outcome. He attended all my court appearances and kept me up-to-date with all the proceedings. He used his knowledge and negotiating skills to get me into the Alternative Measures Program and wrapped up all the details. Thank you so much! It’s such a relief to have this nightmare come to an end. I highly recommend Ryan and Mineslaw to anyone who needs an outstanding defence lawyer. Truly top notch. Thank you!

Thank you Michael. I appreciate your honesty right up front as the first time I came in I felt safe with you representing me as my legal guide. You are a great man and are a greatly hospitable person. As much as we didn’t have to go to trial, it shows how much a name like yours carries weight going into trial. So, thank you again. You really made a difference!

Michael was very knowledgeable, gave me multiple options, didn’t question my choice and prepared a very good defence which resulted in the best possible result at trial: Not Guilty.

Michael Mines cut through the small talk pleasantries and had an amiable straight-forward way of explaining my options. He listened to what I wanted and didn’t try to coerce me into anything else. I had an IRP and if it were not for Mike pulling though it would have negatively impacted my life for years. Thank you Mike and Mines & Company.

I met Ryan Johnson at the worst time of my life: my ex-wife lied to the police and got me arrested for an assault with a weapon. Scheduling the meeting with Ryan was simple and quick, and he assured me that he will fight to make sure that I will not be convicted of a crime I did not commit. Ryan stayed strong and focused on his tactics even when I thought there is no hope to avoid trial. After 5 months of negotiations with a very hostile Crown, we had no choice and a trial was scheduled. Even then, Ryan stayed optimistic and confident that he could get a stay of proceedings. After 2 more months of negotiations, and with amazing human interaction skills, Ryan managed to convince the trial Crown to meet my ex-wife and consider a stay. Shortly after that my case was stayed and done, saving me thousands of dollars and months of uncertainty. During these 8 months Ryan showed amazing defence lawyering skills and support. It was Ryan Johnson’s skill and patience that led to this perfect result!

R. v. A.K.

Ryan was very helpful and professional in helping me with my legal problem. When I was arrested, before I hired Ryan, I gave a statement to the police. I now know I shouldn’t have talked to the police. Ryan was able to help me out of that. He worked with the situation and convinced the prosecutor that they wouldn’t be able to use my statement against me. My English is not very good. Ryan was very patient in working with me, making sure I understood everything that was going on. He even had an interpreter come in once, just to make very sure I understood exactly what was happening. I was in a lot of trouble. Ryan was able to work out my case quickly. I am very happy with the result.

I would like to extend my thanks and appreciation for all your hard work on my behalf. You have given me a second chance and I am grateful. Thank You!
