Roman Shakh's Phenomenal Legal Service
Throughout the challenging journey of my personal injury lawsuit, Mr. Roman Shakh exemplified unparalleled professionalism and dedication. From the outset, his commitment to my case was unwavering, despite the circumstances of losing my mother mere weeks before seeking legal assistance. Mr. Shakh's exceptional legal expertise shone brightly as he navigated the complexities of my case with precision and diligence. His willingness to take on a challenging case when others had turned me away speaks volumes about his character and determination to seek justice for his clients. During the three-year ordeal, Mr. Shakh stood by my side, offering assurance and support whenever needed. His unwavering presence provided me with the strength to persevere through even the toughest moments. In the face of unprofessional behavior from the defense, Mr. Shakh remained steadfast, never backing down and always advocating fiercely on my behalf. Thanks to Mr. Shakh's tireless efforts and unwavering commitment, my case was settled for a substantial amount, a feat that seemed impossible when other lawyers had refused to take it on. His dedication and tenacity truly made a difference in the outcome of my case, securing a settlement in the six figures. As I reflect on the journey, I am filled with gratitude for Mr. Shakh's invaluable support and legal expertise. He is undoubtedly a heaven-sent advocate, and I am forever thankful for his phenomenal service. If you find yourself in need of legal representation, look no further than Mr. Roman Shakh.

Incredibly pleasant experience
Mr. Shakh came highly recommended to me, and rightfully so. He was professional, compassionate, and very well versed in the law as it pertained to my case. From my initial consultation with him through all the court proceedings he was extremely informative about every aspect of my case. I would recommend Mr. Shakh to anyone looking for an excellent attorney that truly cares about his clients. At trial he explained every aspect of the process, so when it came time to make a decision to accept the settlement offer or allow the jury to make a decision, I was confident in my choice to reject the offer and accept the jury’s verdict. At the end the jury saw the the facts and the truth, and I was awarded more than the insurance company was ever willing to offer to settle.

Devoted Lawyer
I had the greatest experience to have Roman Shakh handle my accident case. He gave me his undivided attention and was always in communication with me about the progress of my case. Roman was very sympathetic to the injuries I sustained from the accident and concerned about my quality of my life. Roman was fully committed in achieving the best possible outcome In my case. Roman is a well knowledgeable and committed lawyer who always presents himself in a professional manner. I would highly recommend his service to anyone looking for a dedicated lawyer. Gina, his assistant was a great help and was always in communication with me about updates regarding my case.

Peace of mind
I solicited the service of Roman’s office after I was rear ended. He was open and honest with me about my potential expectations which I appreciate, I felt like I could asked him any questions and he would take the time to answer / or call you back. I am satisfied with the outcome of the case but not just that, I felt like I have gained a friend and that gives me peace of mind.

A lawyer who actually cares!
I had the pleasure of having Roman Shakh as my lawyer as a result of a car accident that I was involved in. With Roman and his amazing assistant Gina, I knew I was in the right hands. From day one, they both were kind, compassionate, informative and most of all patient. Any time I had a question or concern about anything, both Roman and/or Gina would be right there. Roman did an excellent job at representing me during my case and was able to get me the full amount allowed by law for my settlement. I couldn't be happier with their performance and highly recommend Roman Shakh and his assistant Gina to get the job done not only in a timely manner but also efficiently.

Excelente
Un excelente abogado con muy buena atención al cliente. Siempre estuvo atento a cada duda o pregunta que tenia. Cada vez que se presentaba alguna cita siempre me dejaba saber con anticipación. Mi papá estuvo en una situación muy similar pero el abogado de ese caso nunca estuvo atento a las llamadas ni mensajes de mi papá, el tenia que dejar de trabajar e ir personalmente hablar con el abogado porque nunca le respondía las llamadas. Mi papá cuando llegaba siempre lo hacían esperar más de 30 minutos solo para poder hablar con el abogado y aveces decía que no podía y se iva y no atendía a mi papá. Cuando llego el cierre del caso y el cheque ya estaba disponible el abogado nunca hizo por llamar a mi papá. Estuvo sin recibir su cheque por más de tres meses & su caso duró casi dos años. Cuando me paso el accidente automovilístico pensé que algo similar me iva a pasar y no tenia confianza en casi ningún abogado. La verdad siempre me brindaron confianza el Señor Román J. Shakh y su equipo de trabajo. Siempre me llamaban y eran muy atentos a cualquier duda. Mi caso duro aproximadamente un año y mi cheque me llego cuando firme el cierre del caso. En lo personal los recomiendo.

Exceptional attorney and excellent person
Roman is an extraordinary and dedicated attorney. For me was a pleasure to meet him and had him on my side. Roman fought for my case even when I had lost faith. He is an incredible, outstanding and professional attorney there is not better attorney out there . If you need someone who will not quit until he wins the case Roman is the attorney for you. I was really confident and thrust him completely. I knew he will help me until the end. Roman understand your suffering and he will do everything in his power to to help you. I consider it a privilege to had him represent me and I will be eternally grateful to him for everything he did for me as an attorney and counselor. I recommend him 100 percent. Thank you Roman

Unequivocal recommendation
Roman is one of the most extraordinary people I’ve ever met. I cannot say enough good things about him. His acumen as an attorney is unparalleled. He is a consummate professional, incredibly organized and thorough, very clear in his communications, which always come directly from him, never from his paralegal or secretary. He has an iron-clad character and is a deeply compassionate human who truly cares about people and doing the right thing. From the first time we met until my case was closed - with a positive settlement verdict – Roman was completely dedicated to my case. I felt like I had nothing to do except show up when he asked. I was fully confident that Roman had my back - because he did. He treats his clients as if they were a member of his family and is deeply invested in their pain and misfortune, which he takes personally. This, combined with Roman’s strong sense of justice, allow him to fight aggressively and successfully for his clients. Roman will not quit until he gets a positive outcome. If he can’t win your case, it simply can’t be done. For people who directly suffer from or who have family members who are victims of accidents or medical malpractice, there is an added layer of pain and trauma. Roman deeply understands this. His unwavering support of his clients not only helps him to achieve successful outcomes, but also allows them to be able to heal. Some things cannot be changed, but Roman does everything he can to make it better. I consider it a privilege to have had him represent me and I remain profoundly grateful to him for everything he did for me and for my family. Roman gets my unequivocal recommendation.

Good Lawyer
Definitely recommend. I had a very positive experience. Very easy to reach and he explained everything. If he could not return a call, I would hear from his secretary or assistant in less than hour. But the lawyer would always call back that same day.

The Best!!
It has taken me awhile to write this review because I get emotional every time I do. My husband was in a TERRIBLE car accident about 5.5 years ago. He had a broken back and eventually had to have surgery. Upon recommendation of a family member, we immediately got in touch with the law firm BGB. Shortly there after Roman was assigned to our case. From the beginning to the end, Roman was straight up with us. He hung in there with us when we kept telling him we didn’t want to give up, that we were committed to taking this all the way He listened to me cry and get angry and kept his cool even when I broke down. He explained every step of the legal process and said he didn’t care how long it took, he was going all the way with us if that is what we wanted. We appreciated his honesty, concern for our well being and professionalism!! We were able to settle our case without going to court for close to what we were seeking in damages. My husband is permanently disabled and the last 5+ years were very difficult. He worked hard and is an AMAZING negotiator! He is professional and yet has a heart! AAAAAAA++++

Definitely recommend this lawyer
I was in a car accident and made the mistake of retaining a law firm with a catchy jingle on TV. Months passed and I did not even know the name of the lawyer handling my case at the firm. When I finally got a call from a “paralegal” she had no clue if I was involved in a car accident or bitten by a dog. Despite this, and my expressed dissatisfaction with the lack of communication, no lawyer ever called me. I switched to Roman Shakh, who literally told me he will be handling the case and he will be the point of contact. He gave me his cell number. I got a call or a text response within moments of my calls. In the end, the case settled and I felt supported and aware of what was happening and what was to be expected. I am very very happy.

Professional and precise
He handled my car accident case quickly and professionally. I depended on him to take care of everything and was not disappointed. He made the entire process very easy and answered all of my questions promptly. I knew exactly what was going on throughout the entire process. Would refer him to anyone in a similar situation.
