The Best!!
Mr. Valdez helped settle my case. He answered any concern I had throughout the entire process. He always kept me up to date on updates. He gave me advise on his perspective on my case. He listened to me, he wasn’t only my attorney but like a therapist. My case has a great outcome thanks to him!

Highly Recommend John Valdez
Mr. Valdez was always accessible, explained things to me in a way I could understand and guided me through the EEOC and legal processes. He is a caring person and I appreciated his expertise and professional guidance. I have and will continue to recommend him.

Lawsuit vs local school district.
Mr. Valdez was one of the only attorneys who gave me time and took my case. His Law Firm Davie Valdez & Mcelroy treated me with respect, and always kept me posted. They were able to settle my case but more importantly they fought for me. I would highly recommend Davie Valdez & Mcelroy to anyone who has been wrongfully terminated. Hector, Jr

Discrimination case
John took my case against my employer and was very empathetic and trustworthy. I have never gone through such a difficult experience but I was very lucky to have John as my attorney. He is very knowledgable and explained everything to me throughout the process. I would recommend him to anyone that needs to hire an attorney for discrimination in the work place or wrongful termination. He is a blessing and wonderful, caring person and attorney.

What Excellent Attorneys Are!
I cannot say enough good things about Mr. Valdez and the entire law office. Everyone was super helpful and friendly. I was always treated like an individual, not just another customer. I was always informed and kept up to date on my case, and Mr. Valdez and his firm worked very hard to get me justice. I sincerely recommend him to anyone who may be in need of his services, and his law office. They will give you the piece of mind you need during an otherwise turbulent time.

Friendly and Knowledgeable
Mr. Valdez was very professional and friendly. He was always patient, answered all my questions and took time to explain the next step in the process. I also dealt with Victoria in the office and she was amazing! She is also very friendly and professional. I highly recommend Mr. Valdez.

Don't be afraid to speak up. ..
When I initially met with Mr. Valdez I was unsure of what to expect. This has been my first time going through such ordeal with losing my job. He seemed very reserved, but later I learned that is just him being observant. He informed me that I did in fact have a case. He also informed me of my rights as an employee. Mr. Valdez has and continues to present himself professionally and with good work ethics. Not once has he mentioned anything else, but what is best for me and what I want. I have recommended Mr. Valdez and I will continue to do so.

I had the best experience! !!!!! Always kept me informed. Explained step by step. He made a very horrible experience for me a lot better. Assistant Rebecca was also a delight to work with. Very compassionate! !!! You can feel their sincerity.

I would recommend him & do everytime chance I get
John was assigned to my wrongful termination case after I had already had a few meetings with another attorney at his office. He was very personable and kind and easygoing. He allowed me to voice my concerns and I never felt rushed or that I inconvenienced him. He showed himself to be very knowledgeable and advised me to call and check in with him at anytime. I would recommend him to everyone, everytime all the time. I am very pleased.
