Great Lawyer
I highly recommend David Tapalian as a lawyer. I reached out to David after I was injured in a crash. He and his staff took the time to clearly lay out how they were going to go about representing me, and made sure I was well informed on each step of my case. I am very happy with the way I was represented.

Great lawyer
David worked with me personally on my case from start to finish. At first the other insurance company was telling me the accident was my fault. By the time David was done with them, it was 100% the fault of the other driver. He was also always accessible. I was able to recover more money than I thought and what impressed me the most was that he really cared about my recovery. If you want a lawyer who will handle your case from start to finish, David Tapalian is the one.

Highly Recommend
I consulted with Attorney Tapalian and the Senior Paralegal (I believe her name was Naydene) regarding a few real estate issues. David provided great legal advice and guidance on my situation. Luckily, it never ended up in court, but I felt confident, based on my intake, that I was with a winning attorney if it did get to that point. The team here is extremely knowledgable and were attentive to my concerns. I would recommend this firm to anyone.

I was very happy working with David Tapalian. He is very attentive, responsive, and thorough. He kept me informed of every step in my case and met with me to ensure I understood everything. He always made sure my questions were answered. I'm so glad I was recommended to him.

Outstanding
I sought David's opinion on a car accident matter recently. To put it simply, he's a lawyer we all need by our side. Professional, objective and understanding of your needs, perhaps more than you do. He was very responsive - the most important quality we all need from a trusted attorney these days.

Highly recommended
I was recently in a car accident and hired David to represent me. At our first meeting he was very friendly, professional, and clear about what to expect from my case. He kept me informed throughout the process and was thorough in his work. Nadine, another part of his team, was also very attentive and helpful. I would highly recommend this practice. Thanks for everything, David!

If You Really Need a Great Attorney (that you can depend on he’s the one!)
I was hurt in a car accident, and I obtained David Tapalians Law Firm, and from day 1 he was right on top of my case along with his Assistant Naydene. I never had to do anything they both did everything necessary to settle my case and in a timely manner. I highly recommend anyone that needs an attorney should definitely contact his office I promise, you will not be disappointed!! I recommend him to my family & friends

I hired David after a car accident that left me without a vehicle and injured. I was very scared and upset and my case was handled with care and compassion. I was reassured and treated with kindness and dignity. He gets the job done! I would recommend David to everyone.

Head On Collision
I was involved in a head on collision. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney. He guided me every step of the way with medical bills and collection agencies from hospitals. He was always checking on me to see how I was feeling. He was very professional and caring he did what ever he needed to do to make sure my medical bills and totaled vehicle got paid off. He fought every step of the way for me to receive the most I could receive for pain and suffering. If I had to go through it all over again I would not hesitate to call Tapalian Law again to help me out.

I was referred by my sister. This was my first time going to a lawyer for anything. My case started the end of July and I received my funds just last week ( 3/1/18) The process was very fast, well depending on your case. The main contact for the office is Naydine she was very nice and helpful. I spoke with David once, also a nice gentlemen. He will go above and beyond to make sure you get the amount you deserve. I will most definitely refer family or friends if needed.

David was referred to me by family friend after I had been in a bad accident with my infant daughter. I was not at fault, my car was a total loss, and I was injured. David walked me through the steps of my settlement and made sure I understood everything. He was very mind and professional. David always returned any correspondence promptly. I am trilled with my settlement!

Car accident settlement
I was involved in a car accident for the first time in my life. I had no idea where to go or what to do, and then I got referred to David. He was extremely helpful. He walked me through all the steps, making sure I understood the entire process. My accident took a pretty big toll on my day to day lifestyle, and David helped me receive exactly what I deserved, if not more. 10/10 recommend to anyone who needs an amazing lawyer!
