Mr. Shemtoub is hands down one of the best lawyers out there!!...His prompt response and professionalism really sets him appart from other lawyers out there.. Mr. Shemtoub personally called me and followed up with me about my car injury case in a organized fashion and made sure all the bases were covered. Also very easy to talk to and approach which really puts you at ease...Highly recommended if you ask me !.

Mr. Shemtoub is very helpful and honest. I would highly recommend him. Whether a minor or a major case, he works hard for you. He was very prompt about returning my calls and keeping me updated on my case. He is very down to earth and empathetic, which made me feel very comfortable. I am very grateful for all the help he provided me and the hours and hours of work he put in. Not only is he a wonderful person but he is also a phenomenal lawyer!
-prompt and considerate
-Great at his job!
Side Note: I was under crunch time to find a lawyer: I left about 10 messages to different lawyers and Jason was the first and ONLY lawyer to return my call that day! I don't know about you, but I want my lawyer to be there for me when I needed him!

This law office was well worth the drive from Ventura county. My case was handled in a timely manner and I was very pleased with the attorney. Michael was very patient with me and understanding and went over the details up front with where as other places don't disclose certain details to you. I would definately recommend Beverly Law Firm.

Michael has helped me with many issues over the last few years. He helped me set up a family trust. He also helped advise on how to handle a tenant that was behind on rent. Any legal problems I have ever had he has helped me personally or referred me to someone else. Either way Michael has always been there for me and my family and I have great trust in him.

I contacted Michael from Beverly Law Firm regarding my case. Wait time was very minimal and I was able to meet with him very quickly on a short notice. He went over every detail with me and his guidance was extremely helpful. They take your case very seriously and walk you through every scenario and your best option. I highly recommend contacting Beverly Law Firm regarding your case before taking any action.

When I first spoke to him I new he was aggressive and passionate about what he does because you can hear it in his voice. He enjoys what he does and most importantly he loves to win big against the insurance companies because he can't stop talking about how much he hates them..lol.....He got a nice settlement on my case, found me several doctors to meet with that didn't charge anything upfront. I was happy

Michael Shemtoub represented me in a car accident case about a year ago. I was at a stop light, minding my own business when I was rear ended by a driver who wasn't paying attention. The damage to my car was significant and I was injured as well. As if that wasn't bad enough, the other driver's insurance company fought me tooth and nail, trying to avoid paying me a fair amount for the loss of my vehicle and my personal pain and suffering. I had heard about Michael from a friend and decided to give him a call. From the first consultation when I spoke with him, I could tell he really cared about my problem, and his professionalism and confidence put me at ease. He eventually helped me to win a settlement that was more than fair and saved me from having to deal with the insurance company on my own. If you have been unfortunate in being injured and are looking for a skilled advocate and possibly a friend, I would highly recommend Michael Shemtoub

During a critical time in my life, I experienced the extreme pleasure of having Michael Shemtoub on my side. I was in an accident that involved a drunk driver, and Michael was genuinely concerned about my health and rehabilitation, all while diligently pursuing my case. I consider myself fortunate to have had Michael as my lawyer. Since I have never gone through this process before, I didn't really know what to expect. But with Michael on my side, guiding me along the way, I felt confident with every step he took. Mr. Shemtoub worked hard to resolve my difficult circumstances in order to provide the best possible outcome. I couldn't have been more satisfied with his integrity and communication. Michael provided a friendly atmosphere, and I felt extremely comfortable working with him. After experiencing his exceptional service and caring approach, I would highly recommend Michael Shemtoub to anyone in need of an attorney.

I was out on my daily run one day when I was attacked by a large dog that was not on its leash. The dog latched onto my calf so hard that it severed a tendon. My running days were over, and I had to drop out of a race. I had heard about Michael Shemtoub and the great things he has done for other clients, so I gave him a call. He is no stranger to these types of incidents. Michael did a fantastic job explaining my rights and in the end I was awarded a decent settlement and didn’t have to pay a dime for any of my medical bills. Mr. Shemtoub truly is a dedicated man, and his passion for doing the right thing is present at all times. He really does care about his clients, and I am very happy that I made the call to have him represent me, and would hire him again if I ever need legal services.

What I like the best about Mr. Shemtoub is that he didn’t charge me for our initial consultation- unlike most lawyers who I used to think were out to just make money. I searched around for a while before I finally made the call. After meeting with him I knew I had come to the right person. My room-mate had taken my car for a joy ride and ended up totaling it. I thought we were friends, and I really didn’t want press charges. Michael encouraged me to contact him if I had any questions or concerns, and as I have never needed a lawyer before, he really took the time to explain everything to me. No one ever really wants to get a lawyer, but if you ever do need one, I would tell you to call Michael Shemtoub because he really does care about his clients and he will always get them what they deserve.

Michael Shemtoub’s attention to all the details pertaining to my case was astounding! I had an accident at work when one of the machines I was working on severed three of my fingers-I just recently regained feeling in two of them. The machine I was on was old and in need of repair, but hadn’t been taken off line or fixed yet. I called Mr. Shemtoub because I had heard that he strongly believes in protecting workers when they need help. He was willing to discuss my case at any time, and even went to my old employer to have a look at the machine that hurt me. Michael saved the day, as well as my name and reputation so I can get another job. He never gave up, even when I wanted to, and I would want him on my side again if I ever need another lawyer.

I was involved in an accident caused by a drunk driver. This put me in the hospital for weeks-unable to work or care for my family. Michael Shemtoub was there for me when I thought all was lost. He was thorough in explaining my rights, and Michael’s compassion and understanding put any fears I had to rest. He took the extra time to understand the impact this accident had on myself, my job and my family-and in the end, I was awarded a settlement that allows my family to have the same standard of living, as well my job. Mr. Shemtoub has the knowledge, skills and experience to get the job done right and without delay. If I ever need another lawyer, Michael is the person I will call first.

Me and my 3 children were hit by a driver that was carelessly not paying attention to the road. The witness said that they believed the driver was actually texting when they hit my mini van. I was injured and so was 2 of my children. I was out of work and had to pay someone to help me with the children while I was receiving physical therapy. I needed a lawyer that would help me get out of this mess and also make sure me & my children received the right compensation for our injuries. Mr Shemtoub took the case and quickly helped me see there was an end to the tunnel of mess. I would recommend him to any of my friends and family.

When I was hit by a drunk driver my car was destroyed. I was badly injured and had no means of income while I was out of work due to the accident. Several attorneys that I spoke with did not want to promise me any type of financial help. Attorney Shemtoub was wonderful and very professional. He settled the case quickly. He actually cared about my problems and how to help me solve them.

I would highly recommend Michael Shemtoub for any car accident case. I was involved in a case that could have professionally and personally ruined my life. While in a company vehicle another person run a red light and side swiped my company vehicle. The officer that wrote the report did not say specific fault of the accident. My employer was questioning my driving skills. Attorney Shemtoub helped me clear up the accident and saved my job.

I got into a car accident and a lot of accident attorneys didn't even want to take on my case. All they did was ask me if it was a rear end case because those are simple cases I guess. This attorney took 30 min out of his day to talk to me and is very knowledgeable about the law. I've referred a couple of other people over to him as well and he's on top of it!
Posted by Stacy, a Personal Injury client, Flag
This attorney is great when it comes to responding to emails/calls. I think he's attached to his computer and phone 24/7. He was always there for me after my accident case. After the insurance company denied my claim initially I hired Michael to fight for me and that's what he did. He got me a settlement WELL beyond the measly $300 the insurance company offered, what a joke of an offer.

I had plenty of debt and he successfully discharged all of my debt in bankruptcy. Pays attention to detail and easy to speak to. I would recommend him to others.

Michael understands that his profession is a service-oriented profession, and therefore, he provides services that most other lawyers. For starters, he will give you the number to his direct line, and if he cannot take your call, he will return it within 24 hours. If you're stuck somewhere and can't make a meeting, he'll come to you. And most importantly, he always calls to keep you updated on the status of your case so you can rest assured that your case is moving along. I highly recommend Michael for bankruptcy and real estate related transactions.

What I like most about Michael is that he always keeps me informed and gave me his direct number, so I can stay in touch with him whenever I have a question about my bankruptcy case. He told me what my expectations should be when filing for bankruptcy and for that I am grateful because there were no surprises.
