Testimonials
I am writing to express my gratitude to Andrew and his amazing team. I appreciate you professional support and guidance throughout the process with ICBC. Your prompt responses and attention to detail really meant a lot to me. With your help I was able to focus on other parts of my everyday life. I will definitely recommend your professional services to my family and friends.

I got into an accident back in 2016 and I decided to get a lawyer because I have dealt with ICBC in the past and they were just very aggressive and it made my anxiety go through the roof.. first thing I noticed when I met with Andrew and his law firm is that they made me feel right at home and he just seemed very trustworthy and I come from a lower income family so knowing that the law firm was going to help me with medical expenses during this whole time was a huge load off my shoulders financially and made the whole process that much better. I never felt through this whole time that Andrew was in it for a quick buck he genuinely seems like a good person and I would highly recommend anyone to him if they're in need. If there are more stars than five I would give them. His assistant Genevieve is also amazing and I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

I met with Andrew Zacharias in the fall of 2015 when I was involved in a MVA . From the first day he and his team made me feel at ease in a situation that was uneasy and difficult to navigate . Andrew abs his team were always attentive to me when I would reach out with questions , handling all my legal needs and making sure I was fully taken care of . I didn't feel like I needed to worry because I knew my case was safe in their capable hands . I have recommend Andrew to a few friends , they are definitely my go to for any legal needs :)
