Outstanding!
Lyris represented me in a worker's compensation case and is also representing me in a personal injury case, all related to the same automobile accident while I was on the job. She is a bulldog and has fought for me every step of the way, always having my best interest in mind. The WC case was settled without a hearing and I could not be happier with the outcome, with her performance, and with her team. I know now that my personal injury case is in the right hands,

Recomendation for Attorney Medrano
I worked with Attorney Medrano on a workman's compensation litigation. I have never had a need to hire an attorney, therefore, I had no idea what I should expect. Attorney Medrano explained each step of the process as we went along, keeping me informed and updated on developments as they occurred and did so in a timely manner. She assisted me in getting this issue resolved to my complete satisfaction. Based on my experience, Attorney Medrano is an exceptional attorney.

Great attorney
Lyris was my attorney when I was injured in a car accident. They insurance company refused to pay for continuing care of my injuries. Lyris was great!! She explained everything to me in a way that I could understand and did not make promises she couldn't deliver. She truly cares about her clients and wants to help them get the compensation they deserve. Lyris helped me get a fair settlement and also offered to help me file for disability. I recommend her to anyone who asks me about attorneys.
