  • "Scott made the entire experience as pleasant as it could be- I am forever grateful."

    After being hit by a red light-runner while driving for work then hospitalized for three nights. I met Scott and hired him to pursue my case. A legal situation seemed like the last thing in the world I needed on my plate at the time mid grad school and cross country relocation. Scott took it off my plate and made the entire experience as pleasant as it could be, all things considered. In 6 months he settled my case and I moved on with my life. He was the companion I needed at the time to help carry the additional burden and I am forever grateful. Thank you again Scott. - Steven

  • "Excellent Attorney! Obtained a very favorable settlement for me."

    I was injured in a car accident on Highway 1 in Santa Cruz. Scott Allen guided me through the legal process and obtained a very favorable settlement for me. Excellent Attorney! Highly Recommended. - Christine

  • "Fantastic Attorney"

    I was represented by Martin Chandler in a Social Security Administration case. He was very thorough, asked a lot of questions and completed all my needed forms in a timely manner. I was approved by the social security administration in a little less than 8 months. He continues to support me and help me when I have ever requested additional information from him. He is an excellent attorney and does what ever it takes to represent his clients in a very fair and equitable way. Please refer to MARTIN CHANDLER FOR ANY CHALLENGES YOU may have regarding legal representation. - - Steven M. Garcia
