  • 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


  • John, thank you for all your help with my motor vehicle accident case.  You and your team were on top of it.  My experience with Hemmerling & Associates was great.  You are compassionate, I was well taken care of, and happily surprised with the outcome!  I had little stress dealing with the case because you and your team took care of everything.  You are fantastic with communication and are prompt with everything.  I will continue to refer you to everyone.   Thank you Hemmerling & Associates.

  • Personal Injury – I was involved in a car accident almost 3 years ago, an accident where I was not at fault. I was fortunate that I was not injured worse than I was, however, I walked away from the accident with soft tissue injuries that will likely cause me discomfort for the rest of my life. About a year into rehabilitation and physio, it was clear to me that the insurance company was anxious to settle and began to pressure and bully me. A friend recommended contacting John Hemmerling, and I am so fortunate I did. Once I called, so much pressure was taken away, as I was able to focus on my recovery, and let John and Lisa look after all communications with the insurance company. 3 years after the accident, we were able to settle my claim. John guided me to ensure that my future costs of care and other costs were considered and that my settlement was fair. With John it was about me getting as “better” as I was going to get, before settling. I am so glad I had someone in my corner who knew how to look out for my best interests.
