Marty is a skilled and experienced criminal and general litigation attorney.

“Martin is an extremely diligent and professional attorney who manages to maintain the ‘human factor’ while representing his clients. He goes above and beyond what is typically expected from a lawyer. The manner in which he fulfilled his duties during recent court hearings for a family member of mine has left me nothing less than astounded. Absolutely a ‘go-to guy’ if ever there were one! Bravo!”

Lynda Miller

“Mr. Minuk is undoubtedly a master at his craft. Watching him manoeuver his way around a courtroom, as comfortable as he is likely to be in his own living room, is truly a privilege. The respect he bestows upon other members of the court, whatever their designation, is refreshing especially in tense situations. His calm demeanour when arguing a case leaves those he represents with a sense of ease knowing that they are in the best of hands. Mr. Minuk makes himself readily available to those he represents (somehow balancing his personal life and his clients), especially during the most stressful of times, and never fails to appreciate the difficulties of their struggle. Alongside him, his legal team works just as diligently on your behalf, with more compassion and honesty than one might ever anticipate from anyone in the legal profession. We cannot convey with enough sincerity just how fortunate we are to have been able to retain his services…for they extend far beyond any courtroom. Mr. Minuk is hands down well worth any dollar amount, and it is our opinion that he should be rated the best defense attorney in Canada!”

Dawn and Dani-Lynn Coss

“As a litigator Mr. Minuk is second to none – a true professional who has a deep sense of integrity and great legal mind. I highly recommend his services.”

Arne Anderson

“I have known and worked with Marty for over 15 years. He has the unique ability to combine a thorough knowledge of the law with the facts at hand and set out a strong strategic course. On top of that, he’s fun to work with. Marty has significantly helped out our business.”

Kingsley Bowles

“Marty is a very bright person with a great grasp of the effort required to achieve a rewarding result for those he counsels. He communicates this in a low key manner that makes him easy to work with. As well, despite a very large workload, he manages to maintain some balance in his life that allows for family and friends time. I find Martin trustworthy and professional in all areas of his life.”

Jim Barrett, Financial Advisor, Dundee Securities

“Marty is a very approachable attorney who is usually available on demand and is very attentive and sensitive to your needs. He has a wealth of knowledge in legal matters and I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone I know, including family and friends.”
