From Our Clients

Mylene de Guzman

We first met Mr. Steinmetz at a very difficult time for our family, when our family member had just experienced a catastrophic injury, which was compounded by the fact that we reside in British Columbia. Mr. Steinmetz met with us promptly, and went out of his way to visit us in the hospital, to explain the situation in a succinct and compassionate manner. Over the next several years, Mr. Steinmetz and his well-organized team continued to communicate with us regularly, answering our questions and giving us the assurance we needed that our case was, indeed, being prioritized and handled with the expertise we had grown to rely on.

Mr. Steinmetz and his team achieved a fair and reasonable settlement on behalf of our family member, and Mr. Steinmetz himself, presented our case with superior professional skills and tenacious advocacy. As a member of the legal profession in British Columbia, I know what it took for Mr. Steinmetz to achieve the result that he did, and for his support of our family, we are forever grateful. We would not hesitate to commend the services of Harry Steinmetz and his firm, to all who may find themselves in similar difficult circumstances, knowing that they are in exceptional hands.

I acted as the litigation guardian for Andrew L. who sustained a brain injury and numerous fractures in a motor vehicle accident that occurred in February 2005. The investigating police officer and eyewitnesses to the accident initially blamed Andrew L. for the collision claiming he went through a red light at an intersection and was solely at fault for the accident. The other drivers insurance company in turn refused to pay Andrew anything for his serious injuries. Despite this evidence, Andrews lawyer, Harry Steinmetz, pursued a claim for damages against the driver of the other vehicle involved in the accident and fought the lawsuit against that drivers insurance company for over 6 years. At the eve of trial, Harry was able to secure a settlement of $ 1.3 million dollars on behalf of Andrew L. Harry kept me informed of all important legal matters throughout the course of the litigation and worked diligently on Andrews behalf to ensure he obtained the best possible result for his client. The settlement Harry negotiated on behalf of Andrew far exceeded my expectations given the liability problems he faced. Andrew L. and I are forever grateful for the settlement Harry was able to achieve in this case. Thank you.

S.R.

I was injured and Harry was their whole time making sure that all of my legal needs were met. There was time when I thought that my case was not going to end up in my favour, Harry still fought for me. After a time, I found that at the end, Harry delivered on his word and got me a settlement that I thought was never going to happen. Was one of the best decisions I have ever made to have him represent me.

I am in a great position personally and look forward to a bright future because of the guidance and settlement outcomes provided by the Steinmetz team. Forever grateful!
