Justin L.W. Haines
Justin enjoys helping clients resolve a variety of business and personal disputes. He is a skilled negotiator, but if a matter escalates to trial he is an experienced strategist with effective technical legal expertise.
Each case is unique and connected to an individual eager to resolve a matter.
“I specialize in court cases and trials,” he said. “No two disputes are the same and each case is as different as the people involved in it. I strive to learn my clients’ priorities and help them navigate these difficult issues. I understand that advocating on behalf of my clients is a privilege.”
Since 2013 Justin has been an executive of the Prince George Bar Association. He is a past president and is currently serving as the vice-president.
Justin’s legal experiences include personal injury, civil litigation, insurance disputes, wrongful denial of insurance coverage, contract disputes, construction litigation, commercial host and occupiers’ liability claims, wrongful death family compensation claims, estate litigation, wills variation claims, and motor vehicle negligence claims.
His practice takes him to many points across the northern region, with clients in Fort St. John, Dawson Creek, Chetwynd, Vanderhoof, Quesnel, Williams Lake, Smithers, Kitimat, Mackenzie, Fort St. James, and McBride.

On A Personal Note
Justin’s volunteer activity includes coaching golf with Special Olympics British Columbia.
He also values his family time and the many local recreation opportunities of the area. He enjoys hunting and fishing, hockey in the winter on the HSJ Lawyers / Northland Dodge Assassins team, a developing interest in bird-watching, and golf played poorly. He is a member of the Prince George Rod & Gun Club.
His wife Nicole (born and raised in Prince George, as he was) and their three kids are busy with sports and activities year round, often with their black lab Josie Wales along for the fun.
“Basically, I love the central interior of British Columbia. In my view there is no better place to live and raise a family.”
