I wish I could give attorney Allister 10 stars, he's an exceptional attorney!!! I am extremely grateful attorney Allister Liao for his guidance, support, and generosity in helping me get through my recent auto accident case. From the very beginning Allister was generous with his time on the phone, gave me sound advice , and agreed to help me with the case at a very reasonable price. Upon meeting Atorney Allister I immediately felt comfortable during a very uneasy time in my life. He made it a point to make me feel like I was a very important client and he was going to get me the outcome I wanted come my court date. On a personal level I appreciated the fact that Allister was not only knowledgeable and reliable, but also cared. The case is not over yet , but I can remember being very upset I was about my case and him telling me that everything was going to be ok! AGAIN thanks for all you do, I appreciate everything you have done
I highly recommend Allister because he is an exceptional attorney: A consummate, polite professional of great integrity, he is a thorough, accurate, complete, and forthcoming attorney who is not only well versed in the law but also quite adept in his ability to explain it. Yet what I most appreciate about him is his empathic listening skills; he listens to me; he understands what I need; and then he always delivers effective legal solutions--which I find reassuring.
I switched to Mr.Liao after a "famous?" firm decided not to represent me any more for a traffic injury case that could result in $100K compensation.
At the beginning, I was a little worried because he looks pretty young. But the approach and effort that he took was very impressive, he went to the accident location, took the video by himself to understand the case better. Also patiently explain the possible options and results to me clearly.
Due to my personal reason, my case has to be pulled on hold, but the experience so far with Mr.Liao has been great. Compare to the one I used(they didn't do any thing actually) earlier(advertised at Chinese newspaper), it is much better.
I will definitely recommend this lawyer.
I found Allister a couple of months ago~ every interaction Ive have had with him has been very pleasant , informative, and educational! He has worked on my case with the upmost regards to my needs and wants. I definitely reccomend Mr. Liao to anybody who needs a great attorney without the b s that others provide.
Allister was extremely helpful in a case I had with a tenant who would not leave. His sound advice kept me from overreacting and taking things into my own hands (ie. dumping his belongings into the street, or worse). I've consulted Allister for various issues and each time his professionalism and calm demeanor have been very reassuring. As an emotional person I find it helps to have a lawyer who remains even keeled and can walk me through all of my legal options rationally. Allister has referred me to other lawyers when my needs have been outside his realm of expertise which really demonstrates his true character.
If you're looking for an extremely professional lawyer in the Bay Area there really is nobody better.
There is not very much more to say except if there where 6 stars to give him, he would
Definitely get it from me. Allister is what you would call a true professional at his trade
And deserves that recommendation.
We hired Allister Liao to handle my mothers personal injury case. Having limited experience with lawyers , we were little intimidated. Allister could not have been more down to earth in all of our meetings yet maintained a professional manner throughout the process. He helped my mother with her case, he was kind, courteous and treated her with the utmost respect. The case follow up was informative and detailed. We are grateful and satisfied with is work. We highly recommend him.
Allister Liao is a top-notch professional all the way! He advised me of all the necessary things I needed to know regarding my motorcycle claim. His ongoing communication and explanation in finalizing my case was stellar. I was very happy with his legal representation and highly recommend him.
As we went through the stressful experience of the dispute process, Allister provided us with great help by carefully analyzing the case, collecting valuable evidences, and explaining the pros and cons of all possible options. Many times, the legal process (like dealing with the other party, collecting information, looking back at dreadful incident) was so heart wrenching that we got emotional. In those situations, Allister always showed understanding of our feelings and never failed to bring our focus back on the things and facts that matter the most to getting the justice we longed for.
I highly recommend him! While youthful, don't let looks deceive you - Allister is one of the best lawyers I know. He is passionate about the law and knows his area well. He reaches out to other relevant sources, including doctors, insurance, etc when relevant. He always puts his clients' needs first and is very responsive. He is very patient, which is important since many of us may not know all details of our rights and have some options to think through. I knew he always was on my side and would do everything to make sure I was protected.
