I wish I knew Brian 10 years ago. He is an professional and simply one of the best. He was able to help my wife and myself get out of two very costly tickets. I’m still in awe of what he was able to do. I thank God for using him to help us. After all of that, he gave us a written report and some add advice on how to move forward. I highly recommend them. Thanks so much. Blessings.

Great Job! Very professional, knowledgeable and looked after everything. Best of all, Brain had the case withdrawn. Even provided a written report on the day of the trial. I didn't have to follow up, he sent me an email. I would definitely use "Lighthouse Legal Services" again.

Brian handled a "failing to stop for a red light" charge I had while driving my motorcycle. We went to trial, with a very unique case. Brian found a vaguely similar case in BC and was able to get the case dismissed! He's a fantastic lawyer and amazing in the court room. The prosecutors were not happy to lose this one.

He knows his stuff. And seems to enjoy his work. They are open on Saturday so that is a huge plus, no missing work to get things started. I've utilized one of the competitors before and I felt like I just handed several hundred dollars to a corporation that didnt know my name. It was like i was just the sum of my speeding ticket. All they did was take my money and pay my ticket. With Lighthouse you're getting professional legal services and you won't feel like you're just a court date. The prices are very reasonable and I got to talk with the guy who actually handles the case.
