My son was injured by a vehicle while riding his bike home from school. Following the accident, the driver left the scene , and was later arrested. Having never been in a situation such as this, we came to the conclusion that we needed an attorney to represent our son. Scott J. Corwin met with us and assured us that he would handle our case, and that he did! Our case was settled in a prompt, professional manner. Kudos to Scott J. Corwin and his wonderful office staff!

When you are involved in an accident and left with a serious injury, your obviously distracted first and foremost by the pain and trauma of the injury and the abundance of inconveniences, and the cumulative logistic havoc dealing with it plays in your immediate life.
Just dealing with your injury by itself is a full time job, that feels at times like it is beyond you, and when you are consumed and distracted with physical discomfort, and constantly trying to figure out how to get your day to day life back on track in the million little different ways it has to be different now - you have zero time or energy to negotiate the complexities of dealing with the whole legal/insurance side of protecting your rights in the aftermath, or having things made right for you financially. Unfortunately, the brutal truth is - without that last part happening - you will never actually be able to get your life back on track.
The reason I explain it like this - is so that you understand how important it is when all that is going on - to have someone you can completely trust working to get your case resolved for you - while you get on with the business of getting well, and getting your life in order. You need a guard at the door so you can rest, a tireless, proactive advocate who you can have faith is relentlessly in pursuit of resolving things as quickly as possible in your best interest - and in that regard, you can do no better than putting your faith in Scott.
There are allot of attorneys who will come out of the woodwork after an accident charming and promising you all kinds of miraculous resolutions that seem very tempting to engage, but what you really need isn't someone to hold your hand and have make you promises - what you do need is someone solid, who will tell it like it is, has a proven track record, and is tough enough to go head to head with the insurance system designed to make you as the victim feel like the one at fault, and get the job done.
Obviously if you are reading this review you are looking for a lawyer, nobody wants to need an attorney, and hiring an attorney is a big deal, so in writing this review I am hoping to help whoever is in the situation i was in make a decision that they can later on be glad they made. When I had my accident I didn't want to engage an attorney, the lady seemed nice enough and said she felt really awful, admitted it was her fault and said she would take care of anything i needed. That story changed really fast once the reality of my injuries was made clear - and when I called Scott I was already in a really awful position.
Scott put my mind at ease by taking every thing from there and taking it over the next few months from a situation where I was going to be the one bearing the burden of another persons carelessness, into a situation where my rights were protected and I was able to get medical care I needed to get my life back together. That was something that didn't even seem remotely possible before i engaged his services.
Aside from whatever dollar value you place on that - what I got is something money can't buy, I am a trainer and a fit, very active person - I got to keep my job, and have the operation I need to get healthy enough to enjoy my life and work again, I got peace of mind to sleep and to heal - I got my life back.
I don't hesitate in giving credit to Scott for making that happen for me, so i don't hesitate in recommending him to you.

Scott J. Corwin, deserves the highest possible rating as I appreciate his professionalism and speed in the handling of my auto accident case that occurred in May 2013. Settlement was provided within five months and most importantly included extensive diagnostic evaluation and care treatments to elevate and care for the painful symptoms from a violent rear-end car accident.
The terrifying experience of being rear-ended and sandwiched between a work truck and car totaling my Jaguar and knocking me out briefly was a horrible experience. My injuries included disk compression in my neck and back caused by severe spinal impact, which left me with injuries perhaps affecting me for many years into the future. The tingling and intermittent pain spikes remained and lingered for months following the accident and continue from time to time, but at this point does not require immediate surgery.
Most importantly was his professionalism and kindness as he made available scheduled doctors’ appointments with a top notch physician and physical therapy treatments immediately after the accident which the doctor required for three days per week for three months. Then Scott Corwin scheduled that I be evaluated by one of the best orthopedic doctors in the Southern California including a back and neck complete MRI. The evaluations and recommendations for treatments was supportive and helpful in reducing pain following whiplash and the severe back and neck impact from the accident. The treatment plan provided by the physicians gave me a great sense of comfort and was delivered by a professional team of medical staff.
The case challenge for my attorney was about protecting me should my medical condition get worse well into the future. The settlement Mr. Corwin obtained did just that, it provided me with a financial means to address future pain and suffering.
They say it is in the details, and Scott Corwin and his staff and referred medical providers handled all of the details with great compassionate care producing excellent results. His dedication to what he does best was gratefully appreciated. My wife and I are happier than we could ever have imagined as I have received a total insurance settlement of $100,000 to be available for future care needs if ever required.

Scott Corwin made things less stressful than I thought it would be and I knew that if I had any questions or concerns on anything, he would be there for me. It made things easier to deal with the unknown. When you have someone like Scott at the helm, you truly feel relaxed and fully at ease that someone is handling your affairs in your very best interest. I can tell you what a nervous wreck I was about my accident case. I didn't know what to do or which way to turn. Then I talked to Scott Corwin, then I knew I had someone in my corner and the stress was gone. The best thing that I did was to hire Scott Corwin as my attorney. He took care of everything for me and got me the best care possible. I know in my heart that I found the right attorney. Mr. Corwin kept me updated on my case often and was very patient with me because of all the questions I had. Its difficult going into something you truly don't understand but having someone who takes a lot of his time to explain things, it just takes the stress out of the equation. I didn't understand the law and how it worked in my case, but he took the time to explain how the law worked, all my options, gave me his recommendations and was very patient with all my concerns. I would very highly recommend Scott Corwin to be anyone's attorney. My case was resolved with complete satisfaction on my part. Thank you again to Scott Corwin for being a great attorney and being there for me when I needed someone on my side. This man is so knowledgeable and the confidence he displays just gives you a sense of peace during a very trying time in your life. This is the attorney to hire!

When I was injured in an auto accident this year I immediately started looking for a lawyer. I contacted Scott's office on a Friday evening and to my surprise my call was returned that same day. Throughout the process Scott has kept me in the loop and informed about the progress of my case. Whenever I've had questions he was quick to respond whether it was after hours or during the weekend. Scott had me see the best doctors in Los Angeles to get the care I needed. I am extremely satisfied with the way my case was handeled by Mr. Corwin and his assistant Julie. I am also very pleased with the settelment in my case which surpassed my expectations. I highly reccommend Scott Corwin.

Scott was an incredible attorney! I was at a stop light and was rear ended by an uninsured driver. I was taken away in an ambulance and my car was nearly totaled. Luckily I was covered by my insurance for uninsured drivers but unfortunately not covered enough. Thanks to Scott, he maximized my settlement and got me back on my feet. Not only did he manage to get all of my medical expenses paid back, all hours of work reimbursed, but he was able to get me out of the debt I was in due to missing so many pay checks with a bit of cushion left over. I truly recommend Scott and trust him to get the job done! He won't take your case unless he believes in it!

With so many advertisements for personal injury attorneys, I inquired only to find out that THEY aren't the ones who will handle my case personally, I got passed on to an affiliated firm. How would I know that I would be taken seriously? I didn't .. So I looked further and found Mr. Scott J. Corwin, I selected him based on reading the actual reviews from REAL PEOPLE, not those on a commercial posing as one. Who would have thought that I too would be one of those real people expressing my gratitude and personal thanks to his office. I was injured in a multi car accident, and was dealing with the other party's "minimum insurance", for sure I thought there was no hope.. Mr. Scott J. Corwin took on my case and handled it not only PERSONALLY, but with such SPEED, I am still in awe.. His assistant Julie must get my thanks as well, she was compassionate and always kept you in the loop, and never just "took a message" but guaranteed Mr. Corwin to return my calls/emails. As Julie promised HE did! I will admit I was feeling hopeless against my own insurance Co. But, Mr. Scott J. Corwin assured me that all will be ok. How he does it is beyond me but HE isn't just your 9-5 attorney, there were countless times I was contacted via email even throughout the late nights. That's when I knew I wasn't just another PAYOUT. He meant what he said about making sure to settle my case fast, he was professional, ethical, honest and very upfront of what needed to be done. I would hear stories of how long other people's cases have taken with other attorneys and prepared myself for that wait, Nearly a few months ago, my world came to a halt, but now I move forward & can recover. Mr. Corwin got me MORE THAN I even expected to receive. Just as the other reviews I read stating to "do as he says" I am glad I listened, because in the end MR. CORWIN knows exactly what he is doing. He DOESN'T WASTE TIME! I guess he really doesn't need those big advertisements/commercials to boast about his success, when HIS RESULTS & real people like myself will GLADLY advertise by mouth for him!

I was involved in a rear end accident. I looked online for a Super Lawyer because I had pre existing conditions (also Disabled) and knew it would be a complex case. I found Mr Corwin and sent him a message on his website. I was called back almost right away. From the first time I talked to him I knew I was in good hands. He got me a check for my totaled car right away. He also got me all the Medical and dental treatment I needed. Mr Corwin kept me informed every step of the way. It was nice to be able to call his office and talk to him. No runaround very Professional. Mr. Corwin got me a settlement that was much more than I though possible. Best of all he really helped me in a very bad time in my life.

This was my first (and hopefully last) Moped accident. I almost settled for $300 the day after my accident because I felt no extreme pain. I figured being young and healthy I would just shake it off, until 2 days later when I woke up with a paralyzing pain down my right leg. I had never felt anything like it and was scared. I got 3 recommendations for lawyers from my doctor. When I called Scotts office I spoke to his assistant Julie. She made me feel confident about how to handle my situation, so in a sense, I hired Julie and not Scott LOL. I met Scott a few days later though and he was awesome! He explained everything about my case clear and direct. I suffered in pain for about 3 months before treatments started to improve my condition. Beyond the legal counsel Scott guided me to a specialist and helped me get the care I needed. He worked every facet of my case with me and ended up reaching a settlement that went way beyond expectations.
Scott is a no nonsense guy with direct and professional way that made me feel confident that the legal side of things was being well taken care of so I could focus on the most important matter; healing. I would definitely recommend Scott for any body in an auto accident. He does what he says he's going do and more if he can. I couldn't be happier with the outcome of my case.

Mr. Corwin represented me in a car accident case. His professional manner, experience and knowledge led to a successful outcome in my case. He was always available to answer any questions I had and provided guidance throughout my case. I would not hesitate to have him represent me should the need arise.
Posted by Jason, a Car Accident client, Flag
Scott Corwin is professional, detailed and exceeded my expectations in what I was looking for in a lawyer. Scott has helped me through the entire process of my accident and subsequent case, every step of the way. I was overwhelmingly impressed with Scott during the mediation portion of my case and the way in which he showed a genuine interest in my satisfaction of the outcome. The settlement I received was more than I had expected and I am extremely grateful that Mr. Corwin kept me in the loop at every opportunity- even well after normal business hours. Scott was highly recommended after my parents had used his services and I couldn’t imagine ever using another lawyer. If you’re looking for an exceptional lawyer, who will truly represent your best interests, Scott is the right choice.

Scott got a great result relating to an accident my wife and daughter were in, and did so within a very short period of time. We are very happy with his work and highly recommend him.

Scott is a fantastic lawyer. I retained him after someone ran a stop sign and totaled my car. He immediately jumped on my case, taking care of all accident related phone calls and emails which allowed me to focus strictly on my recovery. He was not only prompt in responding to my questions and concerns, but compassionate as well. He explained everything in detail so that I felt comfortable throughout my entire case. He is very easy to talk to, and just an overall great guy. I would recommend Scott to anyone who is seeking a personal injury lawyer!
Posted by Miguel, a Car Accident client, Flag
Scott is an excellent attorney! When I got into a big car accident, Scott was a godsend to me. He was able to get me compensation for my totaled car with in 2 weeks. He referred me to the best doctors and physical therapists for my back injury. Communication with Scott is a breeze, he responds promptly to all emails and phone calls. Scott also got me a settlement that far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend Scott to anyone who has had car accident or any other personal injury.
Posted by Johnny, a Motorcycle Accident client, Flag
I highly recommend having Scott as my legal counsel for ANY personal injury case. I got into my first motorcycle accident and had no idea that I could be compensated for my injuries and for the damages done to my bike. Not to mention he sent me to a great chiropractor, who fixed all my back, neck and leg problems.
Posted by Joy, a Personal Injury client, Flag
Scott is a FANTASTIC lawyer. I began working with him after I was hit by a car last year and Scott jumped in immediately taking care of all my paperwork, all the voicemail messages I had gotten and getting me in to see the right doctors. Throughout the entire process, Scott was very communicative about my case and always accessible and responsive. He's direct, will tell you like it is and won't bullshit you-- something that I learned along the way is EXACTLY what you need in a PI case.
I would absolutely recommend Scott for any PI case and am so happy about the result of my case.
Posted by George, a Car Accident client, Flag
Scott’s work is as professional as can be; he is there to guide you through 24/7. Scott’s work is speedy, will settle in a few months, I was amazed at the short amount of time he settled. Scott has previously helped me with another case, which only took less than three months to settle. Simply, Scott is the best of the best.
Posted by a Personal Injury client, Flag
Scott made the aftermath of my car accident completely hassle free. He is a highly professional, attentive, and detail-oriented attorney. You want this man on your side. He settled my case quickly and efficiently, and was a true pleasure to work with. He is also extremely responsive to emails and phone calls, and kept me posted about my case every step along the way. Without his help I’d be completely lost and overwhelmed. It would have been a nightmare to handle this all on my own! I highly recommend Scott to everyone in need of a personal injury attorney; he’s truly the best out there.
Posted by Jordan, a Personal Injury client, Flag
Scott is a consummate professional -- he handled our personal injury case in a timely manner, and my wife and I were highly satisfied with the results.
It was our first time being in an auto accident like this (with a hit-and-run drunk driver, no less!), and we had no idea how to proceed. He walked us through the steps we needed to take, and took care of the rest.
He's a master to the point, timely communication, and a strong advocate with insurance companies.
We were extremely surprised that he reached a settlement for us within four months from the date of our accident. I have friends who have seen these things drag out for upwards of 3 years! I assumed our case would take much longer, then he called to tell us the news of a very favorable settlement.
He also referred us to a chiropractor in the neighborhood who worked with us completely on a "lien" basis (in other words, we didn't pay a cent up front, and the settlement covered everything).
His secretary, Julie, is also awesome as well. She welcomed us to their (beautiful and relaxing) office, made us coffee, and took time to talk with us about concerns and details about the procedures of the case.
Scott is an upstanding guy with a long track record--and he certainly proved himself once again with us.

I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer. Scott is the BEST! He took care of everything while I gradually got better. He directed me to a great chiropractor. I was very pleased with the treatments and the entire staff. When I stepped out of Scott's office I knew I was in good hands, I literally worried about nothing. Scott is knowledgable, reassuring and most importantly he delivers. I would highly recommend his services if you are going through an unfortunate event as is a car accident.
Posted by Amy, a Personal Injury client, Flag
After my accident I was in a lot of pain. It was hard to even move let alone worry about my case. It was such a relief to have Scott handle everything , he put my mind at ease. He took all the worry out of my case so I could concentrate on healing.
Posted by Philip, a Car Accident client, Flag
I had a great experience working with Mr. Corwin. He handled my case promptly and kept me informed during the entire process, with minimal effort on my part. My settlement ended up being even more then I expected. I feel that I can trust him, which is why I wouldn't think twice about hiring him again. It's nice to finally say, "I have a lawyer".

Scott has now helped me with two cases and has been successful with both. He is hard working, honest, and ruthless!! hahaha The kind of lawyer you want. I will always be grateful for what he has done for me. Don't waste your time on another lawyer when Scott is right here to win your case!
Posted by Kate, a Personal Injury client, Flag
Scott Corwin took my personal injury claim and was extremely responsive, informative, and fair. He referred me to a wonderful doctor and won an substantial settlement on my case.
It was a huge relief to know that Scott was handling all correspondence with the insurance company. He and his assistant, Judy, ensured that all would be taken care of and were quick to answer any questions I had. I highly recommend him!
Posted by Yael, a Car Accident client, Flag
Following a car accident in which the other driver ran a stop sign and rammed into my car at full speed, Scott and his team did a phenomenal job of ensuring that I got the medical coverage I needed for my personal wrist injury as well as handled all communications with the insurance company, which made my life much easier. Going above and beyond his role, Scott even helped me with non-medical details of the case such as quickly getting me into a rental car and ensuring that my car was fixed by a top-notch garage.
Just a few months following my accident, Scott managed to negotiate an excellent settlement for me that was more than 3X the other party’s initial offer and more than 13X medical fees – an incredible feat in an industry where average settlements tend to be around 3X medical fees.
Posted by Alex, a Car Accident client, Flag
I was in a small car accident and Corwin assigned a doctor for me, took care of all questions regarding the case and procedures, and bargained for a good settlement. Even minor accidents will benefit from Corwin!

Scott J.Corwin is an outstanding Lawyer
After driving home with my sister and mom in the vehicle being at a complete stop.
Bwam! someone rear ends me! & forces my car to collide to another car in front of me
My car got totaled
Being a fairly new driver and it being first time into any car accident.
I look to the internet for the best lawyer i could get it and I found him.
All the reviews here speak the truth about Scott J Corwin.
At the end of it all I got my new car and my family & I are very happy with the settlement we receive
Feels good knowing not to have to worry about dealing with anymore auto accidents I found my lawyer.
Posted by Jayne, a Car Accident client, Flag
Scott is an excellent attorney and treated my case with great attention from start to finish. In fact, because the party at fault was underinsured, he is even pursuing additional comepnsation for me under the law. I would hightly recommend Scott to anyone involved in a motor vehicle accident of any kind.
Posted by Jill, a Personal Injury client, Flag
He is a great attorney, he works hard to resolve your case. I was very happy that it was kept out of court, he was amazing! I would and I do refer him to anyone that needs an attorney for this type of law.
Posted by Richard, a Personal Injury client, Flag
Let's cut to the chase. If you're reading this, you are most likely in the same shoes I was in when I got injured in an accident. I wanted the best legal support I could find to handle my case as my insurance company was trying their best to make me jump through hoops and delay the process of compensation for my injury and damages (typical).
When I came across Scott Corwin's page because of previous testimonials and thorough research, I wanted to see if he lived up to the hype. Well, let's just say he exceeded my expectations.
He not only got my case settled quickly, he was able to recover the entire amount I was seeking. He walked me through the entire process but didn't waste my time. He was professional, aggressive, communicative, and efficient. There is really nothing else you can ask from a lawyer.
If you want the best, you've found him.

Mr. Corwin did not hesitate to take on my very complicated and complex case. He not only moved quickly to resolve my situation in the most beneficial way possible he also made every effort to secure advice from colleagues to be sure that all of my needs were met. I have no doubt or hesitation in recommending him as a highly competent lawyer who will take extra care in achieving a positive outcome for his clients.

I had hired a lawyer in NC where my car accident took place, and they told me I had to wait a year before I could even start my settlement. When I tried to contact them, they took weeks to respond and had put a new paralegal on the case that clearly hadn't even looked at the case file yet. I was livid. So I opened up my web browser and googled "Best auto accident lawyer in LA" and Scott Corwin popped up. I took one look at his case results and gave him a call. Within TWO WEEKS, Scott had a check for $100,000 waiting for me, and within another month he had another $150,000 for me and had finished my case. Fast, easy, reliable, friendly, and hardworking!!! Fastest results I've ever heard of. I have only praises to sing about Scott!! Will definitely be sending all my friends his way!

Being new to the profession, Los Angeles, and the law - I had no idea where to turn once I was injured on the 405 by a news van driver. Scott came very highly referred and took the reins right away. Everyone he sent me to see (right down to the mechanic) was trustworthy and took the time to explain the specifics. Scott fought to get my medical bills and attorney fees covered as well as a settlement that was more than satisfactory. Glad to recommend him in any personal injury case. He knows what he is doing.

My family hired Mr. Corwin in regards to an auto accident and from the beginning of the case until the end his sense of urgency was commendable. He gathered all of the necessary information and returned all of my phone calls without delay. Mr. Corwin stood by his word and kept me informed at every stage and I am very appreciative for that. I will highly recommend Attorney Scott J. Corwin and after you hire him for your situation I am certain that you will recommend him also.

Works very close with you and always keeps you in the loop of everything thats going on with your case. Best of all, you always speak directly with him. Scott got me a settlement in a little over a month. I truly recommend him to my friends, family, and to anyone who is in need of help with their case. Scott, my family and I want to thank you for all your hard work and we really appreciate all that you have done for us. YOU ROCK!!!

I never wanted to be in a car accident, but working with Scott helped reassure me that everything would be taken care of. Scott was diligent, professional, compassionate, honest, and responsive. What was especially impressive was that Scott was able to get me literally 10 times more than I thought I would ever receive in compensation for my accident. I couldn't recommend a better personal injury lawyer.

Mr. Corwin handled my auto accident in 2011. He kept me in the loop every step of the way. He worked so hard, I would receive calls from him on the weekend and the evenings, to update me on my case. I have never worked with an Attorney that truly handled a case from A-Z and knew exactly what was happening at any given time. Mr. Corwin is truly an amazing professional with outstanding tenacity and incredible skill for the law. I thank him so much for all of his hard work and dedication to me and my family. If you want an Attorney that will work and breathe your case, day and night, than Mr. Corwin is the right man. Mr. Corwin got me a settlement that made me very happy. I am forever grateful to him. I highly recommend Mr. Corwin for any personal injury case you or someone you know may have.

I got into a car accident in 2007 and I thank god I found Scott Corwin right away. My chiropractor recommended him and he immediately handled everything I needed, smoothly and efficiently. I was treated with respect and all my questions or concerns were always readily answered by either himself or his assistant. So much potential stress was alleviated because of this so I could attend to getting my car repaired and more importantly my body because I was suffering from whiplash. He communicated directly with the insurance company so my car was repaired properly, all my medical expenses were covered as well as my rental car and I received compensation for personal injury within a few months. What made me trust him in the first place was the fact that he only got paid based on being successful with my case. He is a rare gem and I highly recommend him.

This review is a 1,000-word narrative of my outstanding experience with Scott J. Corwin. I'm a 34-year-old writer. Frequent long-distance running is an important part of my well-being, and I’m in pretty good shape. You can imagine what a drag it was when, as I properly crossed the street in downtown LA, an utterly inattentive driver hit me, spraining my knee and running over my foot. It was scary, traumatic, and totally avoidable -- the height of careless driving.
What are one's options in the aftermath of such an experience? Do nothing, eat $1500 in emergency room bills, and carry on – only now with a huge resentment of "bad drivers," seeing the world as a chaotic place full of reckless, selfish people? That's much what I'd done when hit by a car on another occasion years ago. It's not a good look, and it’s not good for your spirit.
So, determined to do something but ignorant of personal injury law, I began a haphazard search for an attorney. I typed a phrase into Google, made a few calls, and spoke with a secretary or two. I wish I could say that finding Scott was the culmination of an exhaustive search for excellence -- suffice it to say I was really lucky to find him! If you’re reading this, you’re probably under considerable stress in the aftermath of your accident. Here’s how I knew Scott was right for me:
When I submitted an online query through his website, I was impressed by his quick response – everyone likes hustle, right? And I was even more impressed by his undeniable competence & confidence when we spoke on the phone. The clincher? “The photo”... you’ve probably seen it by now.
It wasn't until later that I began to realize how truly blessed I was to have found Scott. I’m not just talking about all the awards his firm has won; I’m also talking about his core performance and client service. Did you know that for the past six years he has consistently been recognized among the top 5% of all lawyers in Southern California?
Anyway, soon after retaining Scott, I met with the orthopedist he recommended. Surgery was clearly unnecessary, and when I expressed my reservations about undergoing any chiropractic adjustments, Scott was totally understanding. No, some non-invasive physical therapy was the order of the day. I made a decision early on to follow all Scott's instructions exactly, to let him steer the ship, and I recommend this. Trust this man.
On my first day of physical therapy, it immediately became clear to me that this was exactly what I needed to get back into shape as smoothly as possible. Left to my own, I know I would have favored the foot for at least a month, which means I would have been miserable without my workouts. Instead, my physical therapist and I went right to work.
Your body may never be truly "whole" again after an injury but, hey, that’s life. I found that good medical treatment and physical therapy is really the best way to recover as much function as possible, and this is what a great personal injury lawyer can provide for you.
I'm happy to say that as our three months of PT progressed, I often felt more like I was working out with a personal trainer than recovering from an injury. Today I'm running just as much as I used to! For me, physical therapy was the real benefit of choosing to hand my personal injury matter over to an attorney. There's no way the driver's insurance company would have covered this in whatever paltry settlement they would (after a dozen stressful phone calls) have offered me. Yet it was exactly what I needed to get back to the long runs I cherish. Value your body.
... (ran out of room for full review -- suffice it to say, Scott Corwin is a great lawyer!)

In April of 2012, I was involved in a motorcycle accident. In order to ensure proper handling of my case, I decided to obtain legal representation. I decide to contact Scott Corwin. He was very courteous and "to the point" in explaining the process. After speaking to him for several minutes, I decided to hire him on the spot. No regrets. He handled the repairs of my motorcycle, took care of my medical bills and was able to obtain a very good settlement for me. I would HIGHLY recommend Scott Corwin to anyone in need of a persoanl injury lawyer.

There's a ton of attorneys in LA and I am blessed to have found Scott Corwin he was truly compassionate and caring throughout my entire case. After meeting with him I felt very confident that I made the right choice. Scott always stayed in contact with me to see how I was feeling he was very patient and understanding. Julie is easy to talk to as well and was very knowledgeable. I received the medical care that I needed and was impressed by the doctors as well as the facilities. I was so relieved to have an attorney that I could trust I needed to focus on my treatment and recovery and Scott made that possible he knew exactly what to do step by step. When you are in pain, you can't possibly think straight and become very vulnerable to slick insurances companies. Scott helped me get through a very tough time and I will forever be grateful. At the end of this whole experience I received a settlement that I was more than happy with, even after paying all my medical bills.

After my car was totaled and my injuries kept me hospitalized for six days, anxiety was building and medical bills were piling up. I was given Mr. Corwin's phone number and assured he'd "take care of business". He did not disappoint! From day one Mr. Corwin went above and beyond to meticulously handle each and every aspect of my case and ensure I was treated by top notch physicians. His work ethic allowed me to focus on my rehab and recovery and guarantee i was fully compensated for my injuries, pain and suffering. Emails and phone calls were not only answered long after business hours but even during his vacation it was clear that I was a priority. Professionalism was expected but care and compassion were also included in the package no question I would refer him to family and friends in need.

The first thing that you'll realize when you meet with Scott is that he's a really sharp guy. The second thing you'll realize is that he's incredibly thorough. He did a great job of explaining the process to me up front and kept me well-informed throughout each step. He referred me to a great doctor and a fantastic physical therapist and after a few months, I was back to 100% physically. The bottom line is that, at the end of the day, I was really happy with both the process and how I was compensated by the other driver's insurance. I'm very grateful that I found Scott Corwin. If you get in an accident, you're crazy to seek out anybody else.

I cannot express my gratitude enough! I was bitten by a dog on my face, and I located Scott due to stellar reviews that I found online. He exceeded my expectations and I could not be happier with my settlement. Scott is the best at what he does and is a true professional. I recommend him to anyone who is unfortunate enough to have an accident. He does not mess around- and is all business- which means a lot when you are suffering.

I was in a right-of-way auto accident in January 2012. The other party was clearly at fault. The intersection had east/west stop signs and I had the right-of-way, traveling south, at the speed limit and had no stop sign. The other driver either ran the stop sign or did not check for oncoming vehicles coming from either the north/south.
I was referred to Scott Corwin after a false start with another attorney and another chiropractor. My case was a bit of mess because the other insurance company was not going to accept full responsibility, the tow truck driver towed my car to a disreputable body shop, my car was totalled and I was injured.
After just a few weeks it became clear that I had not been properly represented or advised from the start. Once I formally retained Scott Corwin I felt reassured that I would be properly represented and advised.
As my injury treatments began I realized how important it is to have a strong, reputable attorney from the get go, as well as the very best injury related assessments and treatments. I received both over the next three months and my case has been fully resolved with the best possible outcome.
I'm grateful for Mr. Corwin's professionalism and highly recommend him to anyone in need of hi-caliber legal representation.

I was involved in a car accident as a passenger and had a titanium rod put in my femur bone. I luckily found Mr. Corwin to represent my case.Since this was my first experience hiring an attorney I was not sure what to expect. He was very professional and efficient. Everything was explained to me in a clear and straightforward manner and I received an excellent settlement! I would recommend Scott to anyone seeking an attorney for personal injury.
Posted by Lisa, a Car Accident client, Flag
After being involved in a hit and run, I was referred to Scott. I was almost terrified going to an attorney because I heard so many bad stories or cases that take years to settle. One of the things he said to me was that he was not here to waste my time, if my case isn't settled within a certain time I could fire him. Not only was the case settle within the time frame he gave me, I also received a great settlement. Scott is all about getting the job done and I am very grateful.

My two year old daughter and I were involved in a serious car accident which resulted in a titanium rod being placed in my arm. Although the police, three witnesses and even the other driver admitted being at fault my husband and I were overwhelmed. We found ourselves struggling with getting any money from the insurance companies. After googling for a lawyer and reading other reviews we found Scott Corwin. He treated our case as a priority. We received all the insurance money we were due within three weeks! I think more importantly Scott Corwin treated our little family with respect and our case with priority. For that we are forever grateful.

Scott was really professional and helpful. The insurance company offered me not even half of what my medical bills ended up being. I've never hired a lawyer before and Scott took care of everything and kept me up to speed with my case. He's quick to respond to e-mails and phone calls and he provides personalized attention.

Scott took good care of me after my car accident and more than effectively dealt with those sharks at the insurance company. I would highly recommend Scott for your legal needs and use his services again if i needed to.

I was recently involved in an auto accident where another driver ran a red light and collided with me in an intersection. I have never used a personal injury attorney before, but my car was totaled, I sustained some soft tissue injuries, and the other driver did not seem to care that he caused the accident or my injuries. As such, I sought the services of Scott Corwin to assure that my legal rights and remedies were protected. After the initial contact with Scott, an appointment was set in his offices to review my case in detail. From that point forward, Scott was very reassuring that he would advocate on my behalf with all entities involved and would pursue the best possible settlement he could negotiate on my behalf. He quickly placed my mind at ease by assuring that his services would be on a contingency basis â€“ â€œNo settlement, no fee.â€ Additionally, he immediately arranged for physical therapy services conveniently located very near my residence for my soft tissue injuries. After providing Scott with the documentation he needed, I found him to be extremely tenacious in his pursuit of all appropriate remedies on my behalf. He kept me informed either by phone or e-mail on the status of my case. He responded to all my concerns and inquiries in a very timely manner. If you need a personal injury attorney who listens, who cares about you, who is candid, thorough and reassuring, who will be your legal advocate to protect your rights, and will do all he can to obtain the best possible settlement for you, then Scott Corwin J Corwin is that lawyer. He is extremely knowledgeable, efficient, and, in my case, obtained a very satisfactory settlement for me within a four month period. I would highly recommend Scott Corwinâ€™s services if you have a personal injury matter that needs immediate attention.

I was involved in an automobile accident last year (hit by a drunk driver) and sustained a nasty neck injury. As soon as I hired Scott Corwin, I was sent to the appropriate doctor, was prescribed physical therapy, and had my car towed in for repairs. Scott is a true professional, keeps you informed during the entire legal process, and was surprisingly able to negotiate a settlement that I was very pleased with!

I was recently involved in a four car automobile accident and Attorney, Scott J. Corwin provided excellent representation. He was very professional and kept me informed throughout the process. Mr. Corwin and his staff always made themselves available to answer my questions. Through his hard work, I was able to receive a fair settlement for my injuries from the insurance company. I would highly recommend Attorney, Scott J. Corwin and his firm to anyone looking for a personal injury lawyer......

My 89 year old mother was hit by a car while standing in a parking lot.

I was involved in a 4 vehicle car accident and had some back injuries from it. Scott Corwin was able to handle my claim with the utmost professionalism and showed genuine concern for myself. He even referred me to great doctors that were near me to take care of my injuries. He also gave good advices and explained everything clearly to me on what I needed to do. Thank you very much for taking care of me and my claim!
I highly recommend Scott Corwin to represent them in any accident related situations.

Scott is a best in class lawyer. He was professional, extremely organized and efficient, and executed my representation diligently to maximize my settlement. Scott's professional practices dramatically improved my final settlement. I highly recommend him.

I was reffered to Scott Corwin by another lawyer after I was the victim of a traffic collision.
As I live abroad I assumed things would be long and complicated but it turned out Scott was able to help and advise me as I needed.
He was always available to answer my questions and concerns by email and over the phone.
I trusted and followed his advice to make my decisions and that resulted in the best results for me.
Scott's work on my claim was really efficient and I was impressed by his diligence.
I definitely recommend his legal services to anyone looking for a totally committed personnal injury attorney.

I was severely rear-ended in an auto collision, and suffered severe whiplash/back injuries. I was referred to an attorney who was very incompetent. He never returned my calls, and was not professional or caring. I decided to get a new attorney, and was so lucky to have been referred to Scott Corwin. He took me very seriously and treated me with respect and courtesy. Even though I had severe injuries and pain, I thought that since it was simply "whiplash" that no one would take me seriously, but I was lucky enough to have Mr. Corwin get me through a very tough time, and get me the best possible settlement. Highly recommended!!!!!

It is my immense pleasure to have the Law Offices of Scott Corwin work on all my cases stretching from Personal Injury to Simple legal advice. I highly recommend his counsel to anybody in need of assistance. His dedication to clients and personal attention to details is far surpassed any other attorney that I have dealt with. My humble words cannot describe the enormous gratitude to his care and dedication to his field. Thank you Scott and Julie

After tripping in a parking lot and breaking my ankle, I got in contact with Scott right away. He was thorough, and on top of everything and got me a settlement that was more than fair. Scott was always responsive and caring whenever I called. Not only did he get me a great settlement but he made me feel comfortable throughout the process, which was a little bit nervewracking for me. The doctors that Scott reccomended were excellent and did a terrific job in taking care of my injuries.
I have recommended him to several friends and family members since my case, and everyone who has used him has been extremely satisfied with his services. I definitely recommend him for any personal injury cases.

After a recent auto accident, I spoke with several personal injury attorneys and was most impressed by Scott Corwin. My initial contact in the office was with Julie, who was very friendly and knowledgeable. Mr. Corwin followed up with me via phone and email. His vast experience and insight was extremely helpful. He referred me to a very competent doctor. I am extremely pleased with how efficiently Mr. Corwin resolved my legal and medical issues. I have since referred a friend to the firm.

My two teenage daughters and I were involved in a serious auto accident and we were all injured. Being in the accident was scarry. But not knowing how to deal with the insurance claims process was even more challenging, while at the same trying to juggle my girls and my work. Scott was kind, caring and compassionate as well as being an aggressive attorney who was not afraid to take on the insurance company for us. He dealt with everything so I didn't have to deal with anything. Scott helped us get our vehicle replaced and did a terrific job on our personal injury claims. He was very prompt in responding to my calls and emails and always kept me informed. Scott is the best attorney I know. I give Scott my highest recommendation.

I had a small car accident last year, had to have the front end of my car replaced and needed to see a doctor for some soft tissue damage in my neck. It wasn't a huge deal, but because the accident wasn't my fault, I wanted to make sure that my costs were covered for the car and the medical bills. I am so glad I called Scott after it happened. After I explained the accident to him, he set the gears in motiion for me. His secretary Julie called within minutes of me hanging up with Scott and took all my info-she was AWESOME, so easy to talk to and so compassionate. By the end of the day, my insurance company had been contacted, I had the car into the body shop, a rental car, and an appt. with a chiropractor. All I did was take some ibuprofen for the pain, drive my car to the shop, get my rental car and went to work! No waiting on hold to speak to someone at the insurance company, no finding my own doctor or body shop. In fact, Scott told me I could use my own doctor and body shop, but since I didn't have a chiropractor and didn't have a relationship with a body shop I used his recommendations in both cases. I was so happy I did. Both the chiropractor and the body shop treated me like family because I was Scott's client. Not only that, they were both excellent referrals. My car looked great, and my neck healed perfectly.
Scott and Julie kept me apprised of everything via email. It was all so very efficient, yet every single detail was attended to. Also, anytime I had a question about something, they responded within hours, either by email or phone.
I ended up getting a settlement for way more than I expected. I had all my costs covered, and received pain and suffering damages as well, thanks to Scott's expert handling of both insurance companies.
I am not sure dealing with the aftermath of a car accident can ever be hassle-free, but using Scott as your lawyer is about as close as you'll ever get. That, combined with the added bonus of a larger than expected settlement in your favor makes Scott your best choice for a personal injury attorney in the LA area. I give him my most enthusiastic recommendation.

I highly recommend Mr. Corwin. He represented me in an auto accident. He got a very good settlement for me, and he made sure I got the medical attention I needed as a result of my injuries in the accident. He was highly professional, and he settled my case very quickly. I would recommend him to anyone needing his legal services.

Scott is the best attorney I have ever worked with. He was quick and aggressive in settling my case with the insurance company. As a business owner during these tough economic times, it was important for me to receive the most thorough yet expedited medical care following my accident, so that I could return to work as soon as possible. Scott made sure I got all the medical treatment that I needed, in a timely fashion. I have worked with many attorneys in the past but Scott is by far the most knowledgeable, responsible, and detail-oriented attorney I have worked with. I highly recommend him.

When I hear that any of my friends have been in a car accident, I have referred him/her to Scott Corwin immediately. He is very thorough and efficient with helping each person through this otherwise pain-staking process by making it easy and minimal on the client. His secretary, Julie, is seriously the best as she is so caring and willing to help with whatever she can do. I have now referred at least nine of my friends to see Scott - some with soft-tissue injuries while others with major injuries needing surgery and he has done a fantastic job with both kinds. My friends have thanked me several times for the referral and have even referred their own family and friends to see him because they were so pleased with the results.

Excellent Lawyer. Is very directive in guiding a new client through the process. Do not second guess this guy if you have ever heard how "you are supposed to do this or that after the accident" just call him first. This attorney guided me from step one and the best thing I did was to call him immediately after the accident and he took over. Responsive to all my questions and concerns and expertly explained what I did not understand. Very conscious of his client's rights as well as needs and provides excellent resources to send you to for medical if this is neccessary for your pain. I wish the guy I hired when I was in my first accident 15 years back had been Corwin!

Scott handled my auto accident last year and it was a fantastic experience. He was professional, referred me to fantastic doctors that worked with me to get me back up and running feeling 100% back to normal. The case was handled quickly and the outcome was better than I could have expected. My medical bills were paid, I received a check, and never had to deal with the insurance company!
I would highly recommend Scott to everyone!

Scott J. Corwin did a tremendous job! I was extremely surprised and happy with my settlement amount. It was higher than I expected! He definitely is the Super Lawyer! Thank you again Scott for your glorious work! Justice was served! You are definitely the best accident lawyer in Los Angeles.

Scott Corwin was right on top of my case. Understanding the issues and dealing with them head on. He demanding attention from me and anyone involved. I am telling you, if he hadnt really been on top of it, I would not have gotten the treatment I needed or the money for continued health care. This whole kind of thing is daunting to me and I would tend to suffer with the pain and move on. He was literally a life saver.

I'm an attorney, so when I got into a car accident and needed a personal injury attorney, I asked around for recommendations at my firm. Hands down, every attorney recommended Scott Corwin. I was told that he's the best, and he didn't let me down. From the first meeting all the way down through settlement I felt like my interests were being represented by someone knowledgeable, someone skilled, and by someone that genuinely cared about my outcome. I was thrilled about how my case was handled and about the outcome that I received. I would recommend Scott Corwin to anyone looking for the best.

Hands down the most powerful attorney hands down. To me caring and professional In negotiating with the insurance compaines Mr. corwin was aggressive, incerdibly hard working and truly took them on. He kept me informed, checked in to see how my care was going and stayed on top of my case. I have had similar experiences in the past where things where just drawn out and took forever. I could not reach my attorney. Mr. Corwin was and is available and my reward was more then I imagined it would be. If you are looking for an attorney who will not mess around, who will not waste your time or his, who will not take the insurance company on and who is involved in the entire case from begining to end then look no further. Mr. Corwin is the attornies attorney. I cannot say enough about him and his work and the work of his staff. They are meticulous, on the ball and fully engaged, with great attention to detail delivering the best possible settlements for their clients.
