Trust and transparency
My wife and I needed a lawyer that was diverse, open and transparent. Mr. Padda is an attorney that earned our trust to handle our case. Coming out of the military, I personally wanted an attorney that was straightforward and not tell me something that was unrealistic with my case. After my wife and I had issues with a previous attorney, he turned things around to represent us and never let us think that he was not fighting for us on our case. Mr. Padda will always be our attorney, whether for legal advise or representation.

Better Call Paul!
I was t-boned while driving to work. My car was totaled and I seriously injured my shoulder. I got Paul's name from a co-worker who Paul represented in a sexual harassment case. The co-worker found Paul off of Avvo. When I told her what happened she had 3 words for me: "Better Call Paul." LoL. When I first met with Paul, I was impressed with him and his staff and the way I was treated. They treat you like family. Plus, his credentials were outstanding! Even my boyfriend, who graduated from an Ivy League school, was impressed. Paul's a former federal prosecutor who went to Oxford. Enuff said! Paul has been representing me in my personal injury case for over a year now and we just settled last week and I couldn't be happier with the outcome! Very happy!!! The accident caused serious injuries. Paul helped me with finding the best doctors and helping me get the care I needed. I was concerned about getting my bills paid but the settlement will take care of everything and much more! Everything he said he would do happened the way he told me at the outset. While I think he could be better at returning phone calls, it might just be an issue with his front office staff. He's a super busy lawyer so I understand he's in high demand. At the end of the day, I don't really care because I got a fantastic result! Like my boyfriend who works in finance told me, better to have a lawyer who delivers a great result than a lawyer that calls you every week and then hands you pennies at the end. Paul knows how to deliver and get the job done. I was impressed with his knowledge of the law, his credentials and the way he dealt with the lawyers on the other side. Paul knows his stuff and is simply the best! I cannot say enough good things about him! Thank you Paul for making this a wonderful Christmas!!!! Better Call Paul!

My first choice for a lawyer!
I retained Paul Padda after firing my other lawyer. Best decision I ever made! He did a fantastic job for me in handling my personal injury case. Always courteous and cares about his clients. Great office staff that cares about people. With Mr. Padda, I felt comfortable every step of the way. My first choice for a lawyer!

Power Representation with Personal Concern
Co-workers and I were targeted by an employer and harassed. Where we had been turned away by other law firms who were afraid to handle the case, Padda and Cohen met with us. They discussed the merits of the case and laid out clearly the process for filing our claims. Throughout the process, Paul was knowledgeable, available and supportive. As the case lasted almost four years, it often required inquiries to see what was happening. It was worrisome but I understand the protracted nature of legal action. He made himself available when I had immediate concerns. The case was settled in mediation. Going into it with him at my side made me feel confident that I had someone whose counsel I could trust. When they take your case, their firm represents you as if you as a valued person or friend, not just a paying client. It was a definite asset to me to have Paul and his firm in my corner.

The Right Attorney
I hired Attorney Paul Padda and all I can say is that I wish I had hired him from the beginning of my case. Attorney Paul Padda agreed to take over my case and represent me and now my case has been resolved to my benefit. As a former federal prosecutor for over 20 years Attorney Paul Padda truly knows how the court system works and he is fully aware of what your up against. So learn from my example and hire the right attorney the first time and be confident in knowing Attorney Paul Padda is using all of his resources that are necessary to win your case. They often say it is not what you know but who you know. Take my advice—you need to know Attorney Paul Padda. Thank you Attorney Paul Padda for believing in me.

Paul Padda is the best!
I hired Paul Padda to handle my personal injury case. I would enthusiastically recommend him to anyone in search of a good lawyer. He is very smart, kind and responsive. Having worked with attorneys in the past, I was impressed by his attitude and genuine sense of caring about me as a person and client. His staff is fantastic. The British gentleman who works with Paul and Paul's assistant Mindy were awesome. They responded to my questions and kept me informed throughout the process. These people are the best!

Poor Choice!
Paul Padda had my case and tried to charge me upwards of $50K for expert witnesses, doctors, and to read stuff. He refused to use my own doctors and witnesses. According to his contract or agreement it was a contingency case. He tried to make it a pay as you go case. He also blew deadlines. I was forced to settle because he blew deadlines, and I can't afford $50K.

Response from Paul Padda July 23, 2015
The author of this review was never an actual client of mine. Instead it is someone that my firm exposed as a fraudster who now seeks to exact revenge by writing fake reviews.
