Mike Jones
LAWYER

"You deserve to be treated fairly and professionally at work.

I am passionate about your rights as an employee.  Each situation is unique, and whether you have been wrongfully dismissed, discriminated against, treated unfairly, or need an agreement reviewed, I will work with you to find the solution to your specific issue.

Prior to joining HHBG, I worked for 5 years at a general litigation firm in Coquitlam, where my practice areas included employment law, wills and estates litigation and family law. I am experienced in litigation where emotions can run high, and will give you the calm and professional advice you need to navigate volatile situations in the workplace.

I have appeared before the Supreme Court of British Columbia, the BC Human Rights Tribunal, the Provincial Court of British Columbia, and administrative tribunals.

I am originally from Oakville, Ontario and received my undergraduate degree from the University of Waterloo.  Following that, I attended a masters program at the University of Toronto, and then earned my law degree from the University of British Columbia in 2014. During law school, I worked with the UBC Law Innocence Project, where I assisted senior counsel with wrongful conviction cases.

I am a member of the Canadian Bar Association and Trial Lawyers Association of British Columbia, and I volunteer with Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver. Outside of work, you will find me at a concert, cooking for friends, or defending the Toronto Maple Leafs.
