This firm was extremely professional! The took over the entire process for us, from beginning to end… I'm not sure what I was expecting but they were fantastic. They helped us make the right decisions and got us great settlements. My mom doesn't have a yelp account but trust me, I speak for both of us when I say I highly recommend their services.

I am so glad I made the decision to have West Cost Trial Lawyers represent me in my case. Each and every staff member is very dedicated to their clients, and go above and beyond to achieve the best outcome possible. They were constantly available to assist me with any questions I had regarding my case and I received updates regularly in regards to the status of my case…I was very pleased with my settlement. I would highly recommend this firm.

The attorneys at West Coast Employment Lawyers are truly a rare find… When I contacted WCTL, Neama guided me through the entire process of how my case would play out, offered me a free-in person consultation, and kept me updated every step of the way… I am incredibly happy with my result, and I can say without a doubt that this was the best experience I have had with a law firm to date.

It's so helpful to have these guys on your side when you're stressed and in need of legal help. Neama and Allen are the two best attorneys I've ever had; while I hope I don't have any legal trouble again, I'm happy to know they are dedicated to helping me.

WCTL left me with a very positive experience. They were extremely attentive, responded quickly to my inquiries and helped me along the way. I would one-hundred percent recommend them to anyone in need of help. It was also nice to know that they speak Spanish (it put my family at ease). My family and I were very pleased!

Fernando

Across the board, this firm did a great job handling my case and representing my interests… My entire experience with this team was a breeze and very pleasant. They got me such a great settlement/pay-out that I didn’t even think was possible at first, and they did it while treating me as if I was one of their own. Can’t say thank you enough.

Pau

When my case first reached their office, I was treated with such respect as both a customer and most importantly, as a person. Following that initial conversation, I could sense the care and attention being given to my case based on the follow-ups and updates I was given… These guys are going to forever be my go-to in a time of need.
