Personal Injury & ICBC Claims

Mr. McMullan worked extremely hard for both of us during this difficult period of our lives. I would highly recommend him to anyone who has the need of a good honest hard-working lawyer on their side.
J.F. & D.S. (Langley)
My wife and I were involved in a serious motor vehicle accident in which we sustained multiple injuries and our car was destroyed. Thanks to a referral, we contacted Rick McMullan with the law firm Campbell, Burton & McMullan LLP and he agreed to represent us in our dealings with ICBC. Mr. McMullan immediately impressed us with his knowledge and experience in dealing with ICBC, which allowed us to concentrate on healing and getting our life back on track. We eventually settled both of our claims and were very pleased with the manner in which our claims were handled as well as the final settlement. Mr. McMullan and his staff were always very professional, caring and supportive throughout the entire process. We would heartily recommend Mr. McMullan and his firm as their level of knowledge, experience, respect and compassion were all exemplary.
G. & D.G. (Langley)
I'm very pleased with the final outcome and more importantly, your care of my case throughout the process and the many kind attentions as well from your secretary Lindsey. I would be happy and confident to contact your firm should the need for legal services arise in the future.
June S. (Vancouver)
My appreciation goes to you all, especially Paul Seale my lawyer whom had been with on my side all the time. To me it is very harder job to be as a lawyer.
Jane M. (Langley)
I am very grateful to you for taking on my case and guiding me through such a complex process. I especially appreciated your counsel through the final stages, which helped to reduce the anxiety for me. I have confidence that your intelligence and steady professionalism have influenced the positive outcome of this case.
Jeanine L. (Victoria)
Thank you both for your work in looking out for my interests in this lawsuit. I am extremely pleased with your professionalism and the results you have achieved on my behalf.
Mike R. (State of Washington)
I was a pedestrian hit from behind by a car and I suffered a number of injuries including serious head injuries. My fear that I would never be able to work again, and provide for my family, led me to seek the advice of a lawyer. On the recommendation of a friend I retained the firm of Campbell, Burton & McMullan. My lawyer was Mr. McMullan, and I was very impressed with him right from the start. He was always very attentive and responsive to my needs. He never failed to answer my phone calls, e-mails, and to meet with me whenever I requested a meeting. His knowledge and experience is also very impressive. He left no legal stone unturned to ensure a successful outcome to my case. I know that if I should ever again need legal advice of any sort I will use Campbell, Burton & McMullan and I would highly recommend them to anyone.
D.C. (Langley)
Richard McMullan represented me regarding my ICBC injury claim and during the time he was handling my case I found him to be very efficient, personable and professional. The staff working for Campbell, Burton & McMullan were also very pleasant and helpful and did not hesitate to answer any questions I may have had about my claim. I was very happy with how my injury claim was handled and the results Mr. McMullan obtained for me. If I’m ever in need of legal help again I would definitely contact Mr. McMullan to represent me.
S.R. (Langley)
I always felt that Mr. McMullan and his staff had my best interests at heart, and that I wasn't just another case to them.
T.N. (Chilliwack)
I'd like to send all of you my thanks and appreciation for the hard work you did on my behalf. The experience and expertise you and your firm provided through a challenging and complicated process gave me confidence of a fair resolution. Throughout the process you and your staff were professional, supportive and very thorough in preparing my case. I could not have asked for more. This allowed me to focus on healing. While working through the settlement process and answering my many questions everyone was helpful and informed. I highly recommend anyone in need of representation to contact you right away.
Z.B. (Langley)
We are incredibly thankful for having met Mr. Murphy and his team to help us navigate our personal injury case. With his diligence, close attention to detail and genuine personality, we not only walked away with a strong case closure, but a lifetime friend.
G.J.
Over the four and a half years that I was dealing with ICBC, Tom took an interest in me, not just the case. This helped to remove some of the stress a car accident causes. I highly recommend Tom Murphy and Campbell, Burton & McMullan, to anyone who has to deal with ICBC after an accident.
D.R.
Thank you so much for your support, advice and kind words. It's been a long 3 1/2 years but you made it bearable. I feel the truth won out, thanks for all your help!
D.B. (Mission)
Tom, I just wanted to send you a final thank you for your services. I can't begin to tell you how impressed I am with your character and integrity. Thanks again.
B.L.
Thank you Mr. Murphy! Your immediate response to my dilemma was not only proactive but unusual in the legal community. Your kind, informative and honest direction focused on a solution that is achievable. I am grateful for your time and wisdom. warm regards.
B.O.
I would like to extend a sincere thank you to you, and your team, for your assistance regarding my motor accident case. I would heartily recommend you and your firm to anyone who may be possibly in need of legal assistance and advice. I feel confident that I received service that was above and beyond what most firms would have provided. Thank you once again, Your knowledge and expertise led to a successful outcome and settlement.
A.S.
We just want to thank you Paul, for your support, advice and encouragement in relation to our difficulties with ICBC. Persistence and patience have paid off. We really appreciate your help.
L.D. & S.D.
I was impressed with how my claim was handled by CBM Lawyers and extremely satisfied with the settlement.  I would like to thank Mr. McMullan, Cheryl and the rest of the staff for all of the hard work they have put into my claim and during the settlement process.  I appreciate it very much.
V.A. (Maple Ridge)
I would like to thank you and your remarkable law team for all the hard work and efforts on my behalf. Your knowledge, experience and wisdom made a difficult time much easier to navigate. You are an excellent attorney and you did a wonderful job representing me. I am grateful to you that you took all the stress and restored everything out for me. Your faith, knowledge and determination were something that solved my worries. Thank you for the excellent and efficient way you handled my case.
A.B. (Coquitlam)
I just wanted to say thank you to Tom Murphy for working so hard on my case.  It was  long 5 years, and now its over. If it were not for my accident I would have never met Tom.  Not only was he extremely professional but he also had a lighter side to him which put you at ease. Anytime I ever received a phone call  from Tom, I was always greeted with “Hi, how are you doing,”  genuinely concerned about my life and not just my case. Not typical of most people. Every year I would receive a Christmas card from Tom and his wonderful team, who by the way were extremely pleasant to talk with.  There were times Tom and I would speak on the phone (not billed of course)  just about life, family vacations, and people we met along the way. It wasn’t always just about the lawsuit, it was more personal than that. When my law suit was over, it made me sad to think I wouldn’t get to see or talk to Tom again. I told him this in our final meeting, and he told me ” Well  I’m only a phone call away.”  I thought that was so sweet and Tom, you will be missed! Thank you again for all your sincere hard work and kindness.
L.S. (Abbotsford)
I would like to give my thanks and utmost appreciation and solely would not been able to get through this car/pedestrian accident Oct. 7 2014 without Paul Seale and Lise. They looked after everything and made sure I was looked after so I could get through this tragedy and injuries. Again I am most grateful. Thank You.
Minna N.
I contacted Mr. McMullan due to a personal injury claim regarding a vehicle collision, that resulted in my requiring back surgery. My case was complex as I had previously suffered unrelated injuries and surgeries.  The issues were to differentiate the result of previous injuries from the current situation.  Mr. McMullan handled my case with professionalism and compassion. He took the stress of dealing with the insurance company completely off my shoulders and held my interests to the highest regard.  The staff at Campbell, Burton and McMullan are of the highest caliber. I will definitely refer anyone requiring legal services to this firm.
I.S. (Surrey)
I called CBM Lawyers the day after I got in my motor vehicle accident. Ashley called me back the same day and we made an appointment to discuss what happened. I was very scared and Ashley made me feel so comfortable. Throughout the process I felt safe and respected. She kept me informed about what was going on and I trusted her to be my voice. She always left every decision up to me but I always asked for her opinion as I knew she would always point me in the right direction. I couldn't be happier with the outcome and the amazing service I received from Ashley and CBM Lawyers as a whole. Her staff that I was in contact with were so nice and had no problem explaining to me the paperwork they were sending me.  I can't tell you how much I appreciate everything they have done for me. Thank you so much!
B.K. (Surrey)
Ashley was amazing to work with.  From the moment I walked in the room I felt cared for.  She was sensitive to my injuries and followed up lots to make sure I was doing well.  I really appreciate the extra mile she always went!  I was nervous about going the lawyer route, but in the end it was the best decision.  I would refer you to anyone I knew who needed a lawyer!
L.S. (Langley)
I was a pedestrian walking with my husband when I was hit from behind by a car.  I suffered numerous injuries, including head injuries, that led me to seek the advice of a lawyer.  I contacted CBM Lawyers and asked to talk to Richard McMullan who became my lawyer.  Mr. McMullan and his staff were very professional, caring and supportive throughout the entire process.  Emails and phone calls were always responded to quickly and with compassion.  I know they did everything to help my claim and my process of healing.  Without a doubt I heartily recommend CBM Lawyers.  I thank them for all of the hard work they did on my behalf.

Thanks, John, for being in my corner during the dark days when I thought the other side would drive me crazy.
SSJC (Kelowna)
Thank you for all your advice over the years.
I.J.
Thanks for your legal assistance. Your expertise has made dealing with my husband’s death much easier.
R.L.
Thanks, Steve. Your patient guidance has helped keep our family together after my spouse’s death.
D.R.
Mr. Hart assumed my divorce case when my previous lawyer became ill. As my Court of Appeal appearance date was imminent, it was necessary for Mr. Hart to review the whole of my file rather quickly. This he did and I am happy with the way he represented me. His expertise in Court of Appeal matters was most beneficial. It is a pleasure to recommend his work.
T.P. (Surrey)
Mr. McMullan and his staff treated my family's case with empathy, dignity and respect. His team was there to answer any questions and was honest as to the outcome of our case.
M.L. (Salmon Arm)
My wife and I would like to thank you for your excellent work regarding this dispute. The best part of this is not the money but that we included our grand children first and we can not place a monetary value to this down the road. This also indicates to the other party that she can not have her own way and that she has to be fair to all concerned. Thanks John.
C.H. & S.H., Langley
At the end of the day these processes are never enjoyable. I know you have a difficult job dealing with the humanity of the rest of us. I appreciate what you do and am grateful for your assistance in this matter. I found you to be fair and reasonable from the first time I met you and would be happy to refer people to you.
T.B.
Words could never communicate how appreciative I am for all that you have done for me and my family. Your confidence and re-assuring thoughts were what helped me in the most difficult times.
J.W. (Surrey)
It is without hesitation that I would highly recommend Mr. Simpson as a divorce lawyer. During a very traumatic time, he took exceptional care and patience to my particular situation and circumstances. This required diversity of thought, tact, and I am confident that he always held my best interests at heart.
K.Z.
I would highly recommend Mr. Simpson for many reasons, but most importantly, he had great sensitivity in a very difficult time of my life, and he actually listened to what I wanted and made it happen.  He was always available for me, and even when that meant returning calls long after regular hours.  That was the support I needed, and received. Thanks Doug.
J.C. (Abbotsford)
Douglas was very thorough and prompt in the handling of my affairs. I would not hesitate to use his services in the future and would recommend him as well.
D.S. (Langley)
The service I received from Mr. Simpson was very excellent! On short notice he helped me take a worrisome situation and change it into a much happier one.
K.D. (Surrey)
Mr. Simpson handled my case in a professional matter, and was very balanced in presenting all sides of the information for consultation. He was very thorough in his case knowledge, and was respectful in understanding the specific family aspects of my individual case, and trying to assist in coming to the best resolution for my family. I appreciated his sensitivity and understanding for the situation, and I would recommend his services to any in a similar situation.
C.B
(Jeff Zilkowsky) is an amazing outstanding lawyer. I feel he gave 1000% in everything and helped my child and I get away from a horrible abuser. I will always look back in gratitude as I feel he kept my baby away from a dangerous man and could have been a very bad outcome if it wasn't for his help. I feel very lucky that I had him for a lawyer, thank you so much for everything.
Anonymous
Mr. Zilkowsky represented me in a highly adversarial, messy family law proceeding. I always found him to be an extremely rational, competent and pragmatic attorney. Moreover, he came across as a caring and forthright advisor who ensured that I remained focused on the big picture, despite the many up and downs of my case. Based on my experience, I would recommend Jeff to anyone seeking a reasonable, approachable and pragmatic voice to represent them in their legal issues.

Jeff is an outstanding lawyer which I have never had before. He is a kind and heartfelt man. He keeps you informed at all times, of what he is doing on your case. He works hard until the file is done, which is very fast. Jeff is the Best Lawyer around. Thanks
T.
Mr. Jeff Zilkowsky is an outstanding lawyer. He was my lawyer for 3 years and during that time he was not only extremely knowledgeable about the law but he was kind, sympathetic, understanding and always available to talk and go over every minute detail of my case. He went above and beyond what was expected of him and would frequently call me to give me updates and file reviews which would be reassuring and gave me a sense of calm which was often needed. His likable friendly personality should not be confused however with how strong of a voice & advocate he is for his clients. He fights for what's right & fair & is just the person that you would want representing you. He is passionate about what he does & his thoroughness to details makes all the difference in a case. If I were to need a lawyer again, I would call Jeff in a heartbeat. I recommend Jeff Zilkowsky to anyone looking for a wonderful lawyer.

Mr. Zilkowsky has assisted my family with our legal needs over the past few years, and I can say with 100% certainty that he is the most competent, professional and meticulous lawyer I have ever encountered. His courtroom ability is top notch, his determined and tireless personality stops at nothing to fight for his clients. He always has us in the loop with respect to our file and his communications with us are thorough, detailed and clear. We have always had complete confidence with his legal abilities, and he has never disappointed us, in fact, we would never use anyone else. We recommend him to everyone we come into contact with, and are proud to call him our lawyer.

I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Mr. Jeff Zilkowsky…Many times I would experience horrible panic attacks dealing with any court matters. The second I was in the presence of Mr. Zilkowsky a calm peace would fall over me. This is something I have never experienced in my dealings with other lawyers. I have always known my children's safety was in great hands with him. Things that greatly stood out to me is that Mr. Zilkowsky never mispronounced my children's names, or forgot an important date even when I did because of my stress overload. Jeff would draw out important information to build my case that would never even have entered my mind as being relevant. He almost over prepared me for anything I had that was court related. I would like to thank Mr. Zilkowsky for his dedication, compassion, support and hard work on my seemingly never ending case!
L.T.J.
Jeff Zilkowsky…is a very kind and thoughtful lawyer. Jeff also is organized and knows how to get things done in a timely fashion. When it comes to the courtroom, he knows what to say and makes sure that his i's are dotted and his T's are crossed. Nothing gets over looked. Jeff does not beat around the bush when it comes to your case. He is upfront and truthful and real good at explaining things in language you can understand. He also knows how to reassure his clients when things get tough. One of the best things about Jeff is that he is humble and down to earth. Jeff maybe young but he has accomplished a lot when it comes to his career. You can tell he loves what he does because he makes it look so easy. I highly recommend Jeff Zilkowsky, you will not be disappointed.

Mr. Simpson handled my case in a professional matter, and was very balanced in presenting all sides of the information for consultation.

I appreciated his sensitivity and understanding for the situation, and I would recommend his services to any in a similar situation.

Tarel Swansky was highly recommended to me by a previous client. Everything described was completely accurate and surpassed. Tarel provided legal support during a difficult and confusing time. During this time Tarel proved to be incredibly respectful, highly insightful and consistently responsive to all presenting legal issues. She provided  clear and understandable guidance, taking the time to explain and orient through all the legal language and requirements. Her support, professionalism and capacity to relate and counsel her clients is a rare quality. I have and will continue to highly recommend Tarel as an exceptional lawyer...So grateful for the support. If there's a star rating it's ten!
C.C.
Tarel was very easy to talk with in dealing with the stressful and difficult topic of my divorce. She listened and gave me very good guidance on how to proceed. She even advised me of options that would, if I chose them, entail that I would not use her services. So she put my best interests above everything else.
M.G.
I retained Tarel Swansky to represent me in relation to a complicated personal family matter.  I found her logical and balanced approach to my problem allowed for a quick and fair resolution which I felt was cost effective.  I must add I am familiar with the legal process as I am a lawyer who practices family law myself.  I highly recommend her as a lawyer.
M.R.
Steven was fantastic, a real down to earth guy. I’ve dealt with other lawyers in my past, but never anyone like Steve. Thank you  
R.V. (Aldergrove)
One is never prepared for such an unpleasant and scary situation and [I] deeply appreciate the help navigating it all. The knowledge, professionalism & wisdom made the experience as good as it could be. You really do a great service to the community. I am sure it must be challenging dealing with people who are stressed out and emotional (this was definitely me). But it is great to be able to confidently trust that someone is capable of acting in one's best interest. Anyways, thanks again for everything.

Commercial Real Estate Development and Leasing

Mr. Scott Johnston at CBM provided our business with excellent legal assistance and advice when it came time to renew our commercial lease. We would recommend him without hesitation for any future legal engagements.
R.P.
Scott provided comprehensive legal assistance regarding BC land and corporate matters, including his review and advice on the purchase and sale agreements and title documents for the sale of assets and shares of a significant BC enterprise being sold by the publicly traded Canadian company of which I am employed. We found Scott’s services to be timely, effective and professional during this engagement. I would recommend we use his services again should we be involved in future BC opportunities.
D.S.
Scott Johnston completed a complex escrow closing for us of a subdivision in Whistler wherein bonding, registration of subdivision, easements, right-of-ways and covenants (in total 150 documents) went through smoothly without a single rejection or modification required. In all our dealings we have found Scott to be both practical and thorough.
S.B.
Scott Johnston has provided me with legal services and advice over several years, on several occasions and on a variety of matters. He’s a professional with proven expertise, always thorough, always timely and a pleasure to work with. Scott helped us with one of the most complex and successful real estate developments in Whistler. Scott’s advice from shareholder issues to rezoning and sales were invaluable. I’ll continue to seek Scott’s legal counsel and I highly recommend him to others.

Scott was extremely helpful in guiding our company through a complex process of repurchasing shares from ten outside shareholders, and in subsequently developing a shareholder agreement for five partners within a streamlined corporate structure. I particularly appreciated Scott’s rare ability to keep legal documents both clear and concise, and to explain necessary legalese in non-technical language.
D.M.
Scott is an exemplary attorney. I have had the good fortune of working with Scott early on in my business career, when expert opinion was crucial, yet the finances to hire an expert opinion seemed to be a high cost. Scott proved to provide my business the essential services that my business needed. Performing all required due diligence, contracts review, and other more sophisticated business organizational set up, with utmost professionalism, speed, and budgetary considerations. I continue to use Scott for all my business legal requirements.
D.K.
I have used Scott to incorporate my two companies, he and his team are professional about the process and walked me through the ins and outs of owning a corporation. Highly recommended.
P.V.
Scott has provided legal services to my clients. Through this mutual working relationship I have found Scott to be a very dynamic individual who strives to provide the best service to his clients. He can be relied upon to do high quality work, and he understands that the relationship side of the business is just as important as the technical side. Scott has both skill sets and, for that reason, I would have no reservations about recommending him to my clients. It is always a pleasure to work with him.
K.K.
I have had the opportunity to use Scott's services on more than one occasion. He is extremely knowledgeable, very personable, and definitely makes you feel that your needs are important. I will definitely continue to recommend him to my friends, family, and clients.
D.N.
During our time with Scott, we have closed over 50 share and asset purchases across Canada, representing the hiring of over 600 employees and involving aggregate sales of more than $152 million dollars.   Scott has proven throughout these many years to be a knowledgeable and valuable asset to our team. He has demonstrated a great balance between the technical aspects of a transaction and the business realities that allow for a successful deal to be transacted.
