Padilla Law office was the most excellent in our time of need. After an incredible accident, Padilla held our hand and walk us through a very trying and difficult year. Without their expertise and support I can not even begin to imagine how different the outcome could have not would have been. Padilla Law Has excellent communication and the entire office is there to help in anyway they can.

If you need a lawyer to represent you I highly recommend Padilla Law Group. Jeff was open and honest with us regarding our case, made sure we were aware of and understood what was happening every step of the way, and carried our case to a favorable conclusion. We are enormously grateful.

Mike and his team were fantastic throughout the entirety of the case. They were all so quick when it came to responses and following up. Mike is such a personable, empathetic, professional, and enjoyable person to work with and truly made me feel like I was in good hands. I was more than happy with the results of our case and most importantly, he made sure I got the best care while suffering my injuries. Safe to say I'll be a lifelong client! Thank you Mike!!

Michael Padilla and team went the extra mile to help when my daughter was in a tragic car accident that required a ton of out of pockets expenses to be recovered from an uninsured motorist. Would highly recommend them.

I?ve had the pleasure of being represented by the Padilla Law Firm on my recent car accident case. Mr. Padilla is not only extremely professional, and knowledgeable but he is a very kind hearted and caring person, which took me by surprise. I would absolutely recommend Mr. Padilla and his entire staff to everyone. They have made the entire experience easy, and have represented me in the best way possible.

Jeff & Mike Padilla are excellent attorneys who really goes above and beyond for his client, I'd trust him with anything, do not hesitate to call him. I have worked with members of this law firm. They are extremely conscientious and smart and are excellent trial lawyers. Equally important, they care about their clients and fight for you. I highly recommend them.

Jeff was a great attorney guiding (legally and sometimes emotionally) me and my family though my aftermath of a serious car accident. His expertise in the area of personal injury is exceptional. Jeff and the rest of the staff at Padilla Law Group were very easy to work with and held my hand every step of the way. Subsequently, I have already recommended him to 3 friends in similar situations. And he's taken great care of them too!

Michael Padilla is a Lawyer you can trust and has your best interest at heart. Mike was with me for a prolonged personal injury case. He fought for what I needed. In the end others would have said ?take the settlement?. Not Mike, he has a tenacity that insurers do not like. Keep up the good work, I appreciate you and your awesome staff! Jeff B

I've known Michael Padilla for several years on a professional basis, as we both are lawyers. I have always respected him as a consummate professional with a stellar reputation. I was in a serious auto accident, and since the other driver didn't have sufficient coverage, I retained Mr. Padilla to represent me in my personal injury claim against my insurance company. He did a terrific job, prosecuting my claim all the way through arbitration, and recovering a great result. He is an excellent litigator and trial lawyer, and expertly gathered all the facts, helped me through the medical experts, dealt with the insurance company's lawyer, wrote persuasive briefs, and presented my case to the arbitrator. He was responsive to my calls, texts and emails. And he handled me and my case with compassion and empathy. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and his firm to anyone with a personal injury claim.

A friend recommended The Padilla Law Group to me after I was injured. We met with Jeff Padilla, who was professional, informative, and very kind, throughout our time with his Law Group. He and every Padilla Law Group employee went out of their way to help us understand the legal process which was very encouraging. Jeff successfully helped me and we highly recommend Jeff Padilla and The Padilla Law Group to anyone needing an experienced, kind injury attorney. We found him to be a man of integrity which we valued more than anything else. He clearly loves helping people, and brings intelligence, compassion and a determination to succeed for the people he is helping. Jeff, thank you again!

Mike Padilla and his team are very professional and easy to work with. Mike understood the details of my case and set realistic expectations. I was completely satisfied with the outcome. I would highly recommend him and would not hesitate to use him again should the need arise.

I am so glad that I found my way to Padilla Law Group. Another attorney in town had dismissed my case, claiming: "I could never win this." Then, she sent me to the Padilla Law Group as a way to dismiss me. "Big mistake, HUGE!" I met with Mr. Jeff Padilla and knew immediately that I was in good hands. He listened to me, supported me, and did his research. He felt my case was worthwhile and had merit. Throughout the entire process, Mr. Padilla and his team were friendly, positive, professional and encouraging. Mr. Padilla and his team kept me updated throughout the process, including taking my phone calls and answering questions. They stood by me as I went through the deposition process and more. All the while, I knew I was represented by the best in town. I am so thankful that the original attorney with whom I spoke was an absolute nightmare. Through her, I was introduced to the Padilla Law Group and ended up receiving a settlement far beyond all expectation. I highly recommend this law practice because they worked hard for me, treated me with dignity, and generated a fine outcome. Thank you Jeff Padilla and Team.

Think about this; your injured so I bet you want a great doctor, you want a great surgeon too so wouldn't you want a doctor that will document you injury in the most favorable way for your case? O'Mara and Padilla know those doctors and this is a key part of your case. You would no more treat your own injuries or do your own surgery so why would you ever try to represent your case in a Court of Law???? SCIF / Work Comp are not your friend and they will not fight for you. O'Mara & Padilla will. An over zealous SCIF attorney tried to manipulate a doctors statement and my compensation. Scott O'Mara was all over her in court and cited case law in my favor. She continued to argue with Scott and the Judge was frustrated to the point that he asked her if she was trying overturn an Appeal Courts findings. SHE SAID "YES". He smiled and said "noted" . Scott smiled at me and she lost that that argument and I was awarded and extra $10k on top of the claim we had filed. O & P also processed my disability retirement with the State of California.

I left a voicemail for Mr. Mike Padilla yesterday evening, and within an hour received a call back from him. I cannot express the amount of gratitude and respect for this individual who heard me out, gave his opinion and referred me to colleague that could represent my case. I am so emotionally drained from my ongoing tenant situation, and Mr. Padilla understood. It wasn?t your typical law firm phone call trying to get to your point without being mocked or cut off to a reply of, ?we do not specialize in that type of law?. I will save Mr. Padillas information because chances are I may need him in the future. And, if I don?t, I know I can refer him to others without doubt that he can help them. The justice system needs more individuals like him.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
