Best Lawyer!
I had a car accident on Feb 2014. I has hit on the side by a driver that didn't yield at a intersection. For a few days I debated on getting a lawyer or handle the issue my self. I finally made up my mind and decided to get a lawyer. I had looked everywhere and asked everyone I knew for a good lawyer, the referrals that I received where not very convincing. When I went to get therapy for my injuries I asked my doctor if he knew of anyone. And he referred me to Mark at the Issa Law Firm and I decided to go with them. Best decision ever! Mark was very polite, understanding and patient. He walked me though every step of the process and was able to take care of my case. I was pretty much worry free and if the insurance company ever called all I had to do was refer them to him. I never felt pressure of taken advantage off like some other lawyers would made me feel. I was able to get my self taken care of medically and he did all the talking with the insurance companies. I am sure that I was not able to do what he did all by myself. From that point on he has been my lawyer to go to. I highly recommend Mark and his firm. They are very professional and attentive with their clients.

I am so impressed by this Lawyer!!
I was hit by a drunk driver last year and was very shaken up and unsure about how to proceed. I chose Issa Law Firm based on excellent reviews and recommendations and I am so glad that I did! Issa Law firm has a top-notched group of lawyers who care about you and your case. You can count on Mark Issa to treat you like you are his only client. He is very informative and patiently answers all your questions and address all your concerns. He really knows how to break things down in simple terms. The entire team is very down to earth, smart and very approachable. During my therapy Mark was also very engaged with the quality of care I was receiving. He took care of EVERYTHING pertaining to my case. The only thing I had to do was show up to therapy and recover from my injuries. Mark and Miguel made me feel like my case was important. They were always available to take my calls personally. Responses to my text msg or voicemails were always within 24 hrs. I felt very confident and cared for working with this team. I plan to employ this office for all my future legal dealings. I highly highly recommend Issa Law Firm.

Happy with my choice!
At the beginning of 2020, I hired the Issa Law Firm for my daughter who was involved in a car accident. Mark was in constant contact with me regarding my case. When I wasn’t happy with what the insurance company initially offered, Mark fought for higher compensation. In the end, I was pleased with Mark and his team. His team was always professional when we spoke and Mark always answered the phone whenever I called: these things mattered to me. I recommend this law firm!

Don’t Look any further
I was referred to Mr. Issa’s Law firm by a close friend. I’m so glad that I decided to let Issa Law Firm handle my accident case. Mr. Issa and his staff were more than helpful throughout my ordeal. It was very comforting to know that you have someone that really cares about the well being of their clients. Mr. Issa called me personally just to check in and see how my injuries were coming along. Having someone just to make a conscious effort to see how you are during made it all comforting to know that Mr. Issa cares about you as a person, not just a client. He made sure every step of the way that you understood exactly what was going on with the case. He really works in your favor to make sure that you are pleased with the service that he and his firm provides. I can honestly say that I’m very pleased with Mr. Issa and his Law firm for their hard work, caring attitudes, and the concern that they showed. I would highly recommend the Issa Law Firm.

The Best Advocate for You!
Mark Issa and the Issa Law Firm staff were phenomenal to work with. After a hit and run incident, I wasn’t eager to litigate, but I lost confidence in my ability to recover expenses without help. I was referred to Mark Issa who immediately got to work on our case. He and his staff were super diligent, giving us frequent updates and explaining every step of the process. Ultimately, they helped identify the offender and resolve the case quickly with an outcome that went well beyond my expectations. Throughout the process, Mark and his staff were consummate advocates and kept my family at ease. It is without hesitation that I highly endorse the Issa Law Firm.

Happy Camper
Attorney Issa was recommended to me by my Son and I thank the Lord I listened to his recommendation. After being involved in an accident you are in pain and need advice and assistance. Attorney was available for both. He returns your phone calls and gives you honest answers. I was skeptical at first because of my experience with Attorneys in the past but Mark Issa got rid of all my skepticism. He receives your advice as well and lets you know that he is working for YOU and wants his clients to experience the best outcome possible. That is what he did for me. He settled for an amount that floored me and I have never received such a tremendous settlement. This is a life changing event and through my pain and suffering I still go through, Attorney Issa made it easier to bear and worth it all. Words cannot express the appreciation I have for all you have done for me. I am truly a dedicated client for life. Thank You So Much and God Bless You All.

The best
The Issa Law Firm was the best firm I ever worked with. I could call, e-mail about anything. Never once did I feel like my case wasn't the most important. Mark called me the same day I contacted the office to give me his personal cell number is I ever needed anything. I would recommend this firm without hesitation. The absolute best!!!!!!

I’m a lifetime client!
The Issa law firm handled my cases with a personal touch. They not only kept me involved but made sure I was comfortable with everything that was submitted on my behalf. I was never out of the loop and that means a lot to me. I never felt like I was dealing with one of those TV attorneys. You know the ones who ask you to call but you never speak to them. The only communication you seem to have with them is to tell you what doctor to go and a final call to tell you the outcome and that they have a check. No conferences with you, just a end decision, take it or leave if. The Issa Law Firm made me feel like family the way they fought for me, getting me more than I could ever ask for. I will never go with another law firm in my life for my legal issues. The Issa Law Firm is all I need.

Quality Service
I've worked with Mark for many years on cases both small and large. If I need advice, he and his team are always responsive, professional, and honest. They're my first line of defense if anything questionable should arise. The staff is courteous, and most importantly, genuinely care about their clients' well-being. For this reason, I never hesitate to refer family, friends, and acquaintances; I know they'll be in good hands.
