Car Accident or Personal Injury, Rivas Law Group is the BEST!
What can I truly say about Tania Rivas and her team? The first time that I worked with Rivas Law Group, it was regarding a car accident. It was a very obvious, no questions asked case. However, it involved myself and 3 of my children. It was also a multi-vehicle case. She handled my family with such care. So when I was injured in 2019 and realized the magnitude of my injuries and the precariousness of the situation, I immediately called her. For the last 3 years, thanks to covid, she, Oralis, and the rest of her team have worked diligently on my claim. Personal injury claims are not easy to deal with on your own and the world would risk bamboozling you into thinking your life or injury is not worth it. From the start, she was confident in my case and her team has been with me every step of the way. Whether it is easier for you to communicate via text, phone, or email; they don't make it difficult for you to get justice. I highly recommend Rivas Law Group. My family, including my mother, always recommend Rivas Law Group to our friends and family and they have not been disappointed when they let her and her team handle their claim. I truly appreciate everything they have done! Although, I hope I never REQUIRE their services again, I guarantee if I need representation Rivas Law Group will be the only one I call!! Thanks Rivas Law Group!

Forever grateful for your support Rivas Law Group!!!
We were pleasantly surprise with recommendations for the Rivas Law Group. Both Tania and Carla were very professional, polite and attentive. We were glad to discover their high level of knowledge and experience in similar cases. They took their time to answer all of our questions on the phone or via email. We appreciate their patience and understanding. They really went above and beyond to support our needs. We were treated like family throughout the entire process, which key for us. The health of my family was the priority and they provided this security during every call and email. We feel very fortunate to have had them represent us in such a vulnerable point in our life. Forever grateful for your support Rivas Law Group!!! We highly recommend the services of the Rivas Law Group.

My Case was a Challenging One
My case was a challenging one - the at-fault driver was not authorized to drive the rented van! Worse, my injury needed medical attention and chiropractic care. I may have given up with what appeared as a hopeless case for one who does not know the intricacies of the law; thankfully, Atty. Rivas and her team of experts was there to protect my welfare and rights. I got the medical attention I needed; and Rivas Law Group made sure that I get the settlement I deserve. All throughout the process, Atty. Rivas and her team have consistently accorded me the best and the most responsive, caring service that I am grateful of.

My Experience with the Rivas Law Group was Overall Positive
My experience with the Rivas Law Group was overall positive. I received swift care. The chiropractor that I was assigned to was amazing and very friendly. The only aspect of the process that I wasn't crazy about was the constant feeling of not knowing what was going on with my case. I also had so much trouble finding auto insurance after using my PIP for this case. I wish I would've been told a more direct answer when asking if moving forward with the claim would impact me negatively when searching for auto insurance after that because it definitely did. I understand now that, this is unfortunately just the process but I would've appreciated knowing that upfront. No company wanted to take me after finding that I had a PIP claim. I ended up really close to having a lapse in my insurance if it weren't for my roommate's company accepting me on her policy. Other than that I would say that the overall experience was positive. Mrs. Rivas was very professional and made me feel like I was not being taken advantage of which I really appreciated since this was my first time ever dealing with a personal injury from a collision. I would definitely recommend the Rivas Law Group to anyone for professional, credible, and fair representation. I also love that they stay in touch with you and make you feel like even though your case may be closed, you're are still a part of a community in which you can always reach out to for future assistance.

I Went to Rivas on the Day of My Accident
I went to Rivas on the day of my accident and from that first day I felt confident I was in good hands and everything was going to be taken care of. All my problems were immediately taken care of and all of my questions were answered. I especially liked the "family" nature of this law firm. In one of my more personal conversations with Tania Rivas we were discussing the employees in her practice and she stated "I could easily eliminate one of my 5 employees but I believe it would be a disservice to my clients". A small but very warm and caring law firm. I have no hesitation recommending this personable and professional law firm.
