I didn't know what to expect. This was the first time I worked with a lawyer and I have to say I was nervous. With the general stereotype surrounding lawyers' that many people have, I tired my best to remove those thoughts from my head before I approached Brian. But as soon as I met Brain I got a sense of ease and I immediate felt safe that this person was here to help me in whatever way he could offer. In regards to what my case was, I was in a motorcycle accident and Brian was able to get a settlement that went above and beyond. Again, I have no idea what to expect, and that is what made him so great. He took the time to explain any and all questions. His communication was stellar. Not once did I have to call him back a second time after leaving a message. He always responded to my calls in some form of communication the same day. E-mailing me whatever statements and letters for my record. I put my totally trust in falling his advice because I realized this is a lawyer who knows his trade and that my best course of action was to take his advice in how we approached situations involving my case as they arose. I do not plan on needing a lawyer in the future but it is a comfort knowing if I do, I know who I would give a call to, Brian Carness.
Brian Carness represented me for a motorcycle collision. The police report placed me at-fault. But Brian Carness was able to get me the full policy limits from the other driver’s insurance company AND he got the policy limits on my own Uninsured Motorist Coverage. Brian Carness came up with a very creative strategy to get me the most for my injuries. Brian Carness kept me constantly updated on the status of my case. He quickly returned all phone calls and emails. He is very honest,trustworthy and has done more for me than what I have ever expected.
I don’t want to waste anytime time talking about why I needed to retain Mr. Brian Carness’s services because that will take up entirely too much time from what I’m here to talk about, which is him.
From the first encounter this gentleman was nothing but upfront and honest with me.
Sometimes lawyers, like mechanics, can be associated with having a certain reputation, but I could just tell from the beginning of my experience that he wasn’t like that. He was about making things happen and making them happen in a timely fashion.
• Every phone call, RETURNED
• Every email inquiry I sent, he RESPONDED (and not days later, I’m talking hours, sometimes minutes later)
• Kept me updated, AT ALL TIMES!
• Any and ALL questions I had, ANSWERED!
Now I will say this, I had a lawyer prior to Mr. Carness who showed me he was not really interested in my case; which confused me because he agreed to be my lawyer.
But I’m so glad that his lack of interest and time paid off in the end (pun intended).
His absence caused me to seek other counsel (Insert Mr. Brian Carness ESQ.)
So, had not it been for his [the previous lawyer] negligence, I would have never gotten the opportunity to be represented by Mr. Carness .
I’m very thankful our paths crossed and I’m glad to know I have a trustworthy lawyer I can call on.
Mr. Carness is magnificent at what he does. You don’t find too many people who are not only professional at all times but most importantly, honest in letting you what’s to be expected.
Mr. Carness went above and beyond the call of duty.
He definitely has my vote and recommendation!!!!
Brian assisted in my case. I was amazed at how well he quickly got up to speed and was an integral part of my case. He was prepared every time we met and answered all my questions. His professionalism and expertise in the courtroom is unsurpassed. In my opinion I couldn't have been represented better.
Brian was extremely kind and understanding of my situation. I had been injured at a hotel, and was suing the hotel. He was always responsive when I asked questions, and took the time to explain things to me. I gave him an amount I would be happy with settling, and an amount I would be extremely happy with, and he got me more than what I would be extremely happy with. He worked efficiently and effectively, and I had been working on my own case for a year before he stepped in, and he was able to get everyone's attention, and settle the case quickly. The whole case became so much less stressful on me, and it was all due to Brian. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for someone trustworthy.
Brian Carness handled my case after I had a harrowing car accident on the 405 Freeway, when a Semi-truck hit me and fled the scene. My car was totalled, I was in extreme pain and I needed immediate evaluation and treatment. I'd never been in this kind of accident and had no clue where to begin. Brian took care of everything: he connected me to good doctors, who provided consistent treatments and made sure that nothing serious was overlooked. Brian was responsive, knowledgeable, trustworthy and patient. He stayed up-to-date on my progress in physical therapy and ensured my injuries were being treated properly. He answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable with each decision being made in my case. If I am ever in this situation again, I'd certainly hire Brian Carness.
Brian was incredibly helpful in explaining the entire process all the way through, which allowed me to get back to life quicker. He was responsive, professional and best of all got results. I've recommended him to at least 5 other people who have suffered an accident. When it came to ensure my children and I got everything we deserved in terms of compensation, I couldnt have made a better choice.
Brian Carness is a great attorney. He has handled several legal matters for me. Mr. Carness was always available to answer my questions. He would keep me involved in the legal process, and contact me regularly to give me updates on my case so that I never had to wonder what was going on. His legal services have saved me money in a number of instances. Nobody likes having to hire a lawyer, but when I do, I am confident that Mr. Carness will take care of me.
Brian Carness has always obtained great results for me. He kept me updated on the status of my case, quickly returnedd emails, and continued to help negotiate my bills even after we finalized the settlement. Brian was consistently productive and pleasant in all our interactions.
