Accident
I approached Mr Roach from a referral of a very good mutual friend. My experience with the law firm has been nothing but very professional. Mr Roach and his Assistant Cherylyn took care of everything for me. I was asked some questions and with my quick follow up they were able to file my claim and negotiate the best outcome for my case. This experiece was not good but had a very positive outcome with the help of Hal Roach's Law Firm. I would recomend this firm and the team for any future case that I may have. Dave

I don't think that the firm needs to make any changes.
Mr. Roach is, in my opinion, very knowledgeable in many areas of the law. He is honest, he doesn't offer false hope, and his demeanor is such that you can feel calm and forth coming with any questions or comments you may have. He doesn't discuss anything that is told to him, unless necessary, and doesn't hesitate to ask first or let you know. 5 star attorney and litigator in my opinion.
