We strive to provide the best quality legal representation. Here are some kind words from past clients we have helped.
I was so grateful when Michael and his firm spent the time to explain everything to me and kept me informed during the whole legal process. I had heard from other people that they never received any letters or calls from their lawyers. But with Michael’s firm someone was always available and always willing to listen. They really cared about me and my case. I have recommended Hoogbruin & Company to family and friends and encourage anyone with the need for a lawyer to give them a call.
I think Mike is the best lawyer in the city. He took my case to trial and the result was excellent. The process was stressful, but in the end it was all worth it. I don’t think another lawyer would have been able to get the same outcome at trial that Mike did. That trial was 25 years ago. I still talk to Mike. He is always willing to provide me and my family with good advice and has been helpful to my family in bad times and good times.
The people at Hoogbruin & Company took really great care of me. I was prepared each step of the way and one of the lawyers would always take the time to explain the process to me. I appreciated that. My discovery was actually quite easy because I was so well prepared. I always felt really confident that I had the best people on my side. It was trial that really made me shake. The trial was stressful and making the decision to go to trial was scary. You have all kinds of doubts about yourself and it’s just a very difficult time, but I felt a lot of confidence in Mike and Arsen. Without that confidence, my husband and I would not have gone ahead with the trial. In the end the result speaks for itself. The court awarded much more than what ICBC had offered. That vindicated my belief in the firm, in myself and in my decision to take this all the way to trial.
The whiplash I experienced after being rear-ended complicated my day-to-day life with Parkinson’s disease. I’m grateful that Mike Hoogbruin’s first priority was to see that I got the medical care I needed to make the best possible recovery. I’m also thankful that when the insurance company tried to equate no permanent damage with no injuries suffered, Mike and his years of experience were there to obtain a fair settlement for me.
I have known Mike Hoogbruin for the last 15 years. His firm has done a lot of work for me, my family and friends. Mr. Hoogbruin always cared about what was going on with me and my family. When I was upset he always gave me a big hug whether we were in the court or outside the court. That’s a big thing when you are looking for someone to fight for you. Now, for me it’s just like dealing with my own good friend or family member. I have so much comfort doing business with Mr. Hoogbruin or Arsen. The end result for me and others has always been good. I consider Mike to be my good friend now.
When my son was tragically killed in a car accident my world was turned upside down. When a friend recommended I speak with Hoogbruin & Company I didn’t know if I have the strength to face the lengthy court battle with ICBC. With Mike’s knowledge and compassion he gave me that strength to act on my son’s behalf. His staff and medical experts were exceptional. How reassuring it felt to have thebest of the best.
Mike and I are golfing partners and have been golfing together for a long time now. I can say without a doubt that Mike is a better lawyer than he is a golfer. I met Mike back in 1992 when I was involved in a major car accident. Mike was my lawyer. He turned out to be not only a great lawyer, but a real and caring person. Mike did everything in his power to get me the treatment I needed and the settlement I deserved.
