My Attorney, Rob Wilhite at the Sawaya Law firm was great. I truly appreciated every time I had a question, he quickly answered it. He was always positive, helpful and always had a "can do" attitude.
I am very glad that I was assigned to him, as he worked very hard on my case.
Thank you again, Attorney Wilhite for all of your hard work and dedication to the case. You are a valuable member of the Law Firm.

The Sawaya Law Firm was excellent in helping me with the long hard process of proving to the SSA that people with true disabilities that affect their ability for employment. They always kept me informed and guided me through the entire process. Without their help I do not believe I would have won approval in the SSA review of my case.

My road I felt, was challenging. However, I tip my hat and have to stand in awe at the outcome. I'm still pinching myself. Throughout the case, I wasn't sure how I was going to fare and had even become concerned, as my I had ever mounting medical bills. Admittedly, there were times when the communication was lacking in the first part of the case. However, after I advised of my concern with my representing attorney, the ball was picked up, the team ran with it, and it never dropped again. From that point on, the communication was consistent, real and straight forward. They never sugar coated anything. Nor did my attorney give me false hope. I truly appreciate Nicole for that!
Sure, there were times when I became very frustrated. After the (long) 2 year process (which could not have been avoided), my case has finally come to an end. With deep frustration, I discussed my medical bills and the fees against the settlement. The Disbursement Angel Ami, my compassionate Attorney Nicole both considered the fact that my settlement could have left me coming out with next to nothing after the medical bills and attorney fees got paid; literally. What happened next truly floored me:
My attorney spoke with Mr. Sawaya, whom agreed to do something I never expected. They took a massive reduction in their fees, which enabled me to come out with money I can use to pay both debts I accrued from the accident occurred and medical bills I may have, that future medical insurance don't cover. I won't say how much I got, but I can say that with all my heart, I TRULLY APPRECIATE ALL that Mr. Sawaya, Nicole, Ami and the rest of the staff has done for me. They not only heard me and understood my concern, but also showed compassion to the point that they put me before themselves and their fees. I also appreciate that Mr. Mike Sawaya had taken the time to meet with me personally on 2 occasions. In the beginning of my case and at the very end.
I can't say enough for the true care and compassion I received at Sawaya Law Firm. I'm sorry that others may feel that they did not have such a great experience, but I have to say that I did.
I've already referred several people to them in the past 1 1/2 years, none of whom have anything negative to say about this firm. I just hope that they appreciate the Sawaya Law Firm as much as I do and I will continue to spread the word and love!
Mr. Sawaya, Nicole, Ami and team, I TRULY THANK YOU for EVERYTHING!!! What a surprising blessing you provided me. I'm eternally grateful!!

I WENT TO THEM FOR HELP WITH MY SSI CASE WHICH I WAS TOLD THERE WOULD BE NO CHARGE UNLESS I WON. JUST LIKE THEY SAY ON THE COMMERCIALS. THEN A DAY BEFORE MY COURT DATE THEY TELL ME I OWE THEM 300 DOLLARS NO MATTER WHAT FOR MY HOSPITAL RECORDS!? KEEP IN MIND THIS WASN'T UNTIL THEY DAY BEFORE MY COURT DATE THAT I WAS TOLD THIS. AS FAR AS I KNOW THAT'S FALSE ADVERTISING! NOW THAT I GOT APPROVED FOR SSI WHICH LET ME MAKE VERY VERY CLEAR THEY WEREN'T EVEN THE ONES WHO GOT IT FOR ME THEY HAVE NO PROBLEM GETTING AHOLD OF ME NOW AND BASICALLY THREATENING TO SEND ME TO COLLECTIONS IF I DIDN'T PAY THEM THAT 300 HUNDRED DOLLARS.

I hired this firm and brought my paperwork in person because they told me it would expedite my ability to see a doctor, which I desperately needed. The next day, I received a voice mail saying I should come in for an appointment. I returned the call, but, never another call back. I called back and was told I needed to be scheduled for my 45 day appointment. It had been 2 days. What? No doctor appointment - no follow up - and now they think it's been 45 days? I called back and spoke to my initial contact. She was not apologetic - I would characterize her as bullying and mean. Very when you are in a lot of pain to be treated with such disregard. Don't believe the commercials - the kindness is just for show. The reality falls very short.

My husband & I were in a car accident 6/11. We had the good sense to contact the Sawaya Law Firm to deal with the insurance companies. I am so happy with not only the results of my case (my husband's is still pending) but I thoroughly enjoyed working with both Matthew Shows and Bernadette Lopez. Each one of them took the time to answer emails & calls regarding my case & the handling of medical claims. Also, Mr. Sawaya took the time to meet with both my husband & I and referred us to medical specialists. I am very grateful that I did not have to maneuver my way through the insurance maze. They truly care about their clients!

I was rear-ended by an SUV (I was in a small car) on Oct 27, 2011. My car was totaled and I came away with whiplash and a brain injury. The days after the accident are muddled in my memory, but I do clearly remember how horrible it was to deal with the other driver's insurance company. After a few attempts, I chose to hire a lawyer and picked the Sawaya Firm off the Google search list. I had no idea what to expect, or even what I needed. My case manager and lawyer guided me to get the medical treatment I needed and even went above their scope of duty to help me understand the property settlement. They kept me informed of what to do next, and monitored my recovery. They also managed to give me the space I needed to heal. I really don't think I would have gotten the medical attention I needed without their help. And I was able to focus on my recovery and not worry about the bills. My case was resolved completely to my satisfaction and I feel fortunate that I picked this firm out of that long list.

It has been great, The Sawaya Law Firm helped guide me from being sent back and forth between clinics, the insurance group, especially with a brain injury. Brain injury is invisible, even friends can't help you cope. This experience has been a healing miracle at the hands of the doctors and Jesus himself.
