  • I was referred to Michael Prah after suffering injuries due to a car accident. I was hesitant to meet with lawyers because ICBC advised otherwise. Eventually I began to feel overwhelmed and pressured by ICBC so I decided to make an appointment with Hemmerling Law.

    After meeting with John and Michael, I felt relieved. Michael took the burden and all the stress off of me, and truly went above and beyond. The settlement I received completely exceeded my expectations. I will always be forever grateful for everything Michael and Hemmerling Law did for me.
    I will be recommending them to everyone I know!


  • My experience with Hemmerling Law particularly with my lawyer John Hemmerling was extremely positive. Due to a non-fault motor vehicle accident I was left with quite a slew of injuries that negatively impacted my quality of life. With John’s arduous work ethic I was able to obtain medical appointments and treatments much quicker than I would have been able to obtain on my own accord. He dealt with ICBC directly and took the hassle and struggle out of dealing with it yourself. He made sure I was taken care of with every facet of my life and was always open and willing to discuss any questions and concerns. Hemmerling law is an excellent professional law firm and any client they take on I believe will be more than satisfied. In the end with my claim John got me a very fair settlement and has now allowed me to try and move forward with my life. Thank you so much John!


  • John Hemmerling was the lead lawyer for my claim.  During the course of my car accident, John and his team provided outstanding legal guidance as well as ensuring that my legal costs were efficiently managed for me throughout the process.  Both John and Lisa was also very responsive via e mail and phone whenever I had questions and compassionate when I was stressed.  At one point, I thought the process was becoming too stressful.  John and his entire team made a very difficult situation much easier to deal with.  I would highly recommend Hemmerling Law.


  • I recently went to John Hemmerling Law as ICBC was pressuring me to close my car accident claim.  I was still having issues so was not comfortable doing this.  A co-worker suggested John and it was such a relief not to have to deal with ICBC ever again.  I found John to be a truly honest man, with integrity!  My claim  is now closed and I have a lovely settlement!


  • Words cannot express how tremendously grateful I am to Mr. Hemmerling and his staff for their sincere compassion and legal assistance during one of the most challenging times in my life. I came to be a client of Mr. Hemmerling after my original lawyer suddenly passed away and the Firms replacement did not meet with my expectations. Mr. Hemmerling’s level of expertise and professionalism surpassed even my greatest expectations. Aside from his obvious skill and remarkable success rate, Mr. Hemmerling is genuinely committed to his clients. Regardless of the time or the importance of my matter, every phone call and email was promptly and personally returned. With each circumstance that arose, Mr. Hemmerling gave practical advice and supplied necessary information to allow me to make my own informed decisions. He guided me through the long and daunting legal process, yet never lost his patience despite my frequent and overwhelming inquiries. He provided a support system and served as a mentor, exceeding the scope of what lawyers today are expected to do.
    Simply put, lawyers like Mr. Hemmerling are truly and exceptionally rare. Though it goes without saying, I would never hesitate to use or refer his outstanding services in the future. Thank you!


  • I just wanted to send a thank you to you and your coworkers for helping me out through all of the litigation process. Your office and staff helped alleviate a lot of stress from dealing with the insurance adjusters and were always available to answer any questions throughout the process. I am very glad you were able to help. – Lucas
