What a fantastic law firm!
Where should I start? This feedback is long overdue, and I am going to put my heart and soul into putting as much as possible on paper. Anyone reading this please note that my experiences with Mr. Ed El Dabe, Mr Jon Ritter, and their staff are real and not coerced in any way or form. My unfortunate near death accident occurred in 2016 while crossing the road as a pedestrian. As I have had a prior retention of this firm, re-contacting them was no effort. Their response was amazing and one of the partner lawyers, Ms. Jessica Castro visited me in the hospital. My timing couldn’t have been better. Soon after our initial meeting they got the ball rolling. Due to my multiple injuries I had countless visits to various doctors, physical therapy sessions and other accident related establishments. While my entire life had turned upside down and I was confined to the home, the personnel at El Dabe / Ritter Law Office called me at least once every 2 weeks for updates. Their follow up calls were impressive and thorough. Since my incident was Workers Comp related, they also referred me to an additional Workers Comp lawyer. From initial meetings in their office to depositions with opposing attorneys, Jon Ritter and Edmond El Dabe were there providing me with the required guidance and advice. For over 2 years, throughout the entire pre-trial period they simply acted like angels by my side providing me with answers to whatever questions I may have had. I really couldn’t have asked for any better accident lawyers. Ultimately, all their efforts paid off, and we were able to successfully obtain positive results. I would strongly recommend the El Dabe / Ritter Law Firm to anyone seeking an injury attorney.

Hands-On & Knowledgeable
A former employer provided a work environment that was not conducive to female safety. Employee requests for help were minimized & disregarded. After being left with no other choice, I sought the help of Mr. El Dabe who came by referral. Court was a stressful time, with some jabs from the old boss, but Mr. El Dabe shredded that non-sense with fact after fact, which magnified the inconsistencies. The staff at his firm were very professional & Mr. El Dabe always made sure to follow though on his word & have himself or a partner give me a call when needed. I was not just a number & that matters. On top of that, I got 13K more than the amount I told him I wanted!

Outstanding Results / Awesome experience working with El Dabe Law Firm
Amazing results! Thank you El Dabe Law Firm! My father in law was involved in a terrible high speed collision in the fast lane on the freeway. El Dabe Law Firm was a wealth of information. Their knowledge was deep and nuanced and they provided us with top notch expertise and guidance throughout the process. We could not have been more pleased with the results. El Dabe Law Firm helped us to recover a very generous amount. I wholeheartedly believe that had we not had El Dabe Law Firm on our side, my father in law's recovery would likely been significantly lower. Thanks again!

Hard Working Great Attorney:)
If you need an attorney who is reliable and works hard to defend you! Edmond was recommended to me and I was happy with the outcome. I was in a car accident in 2008,with the feeling that I needed a great attorney to fight for me. I needed help with medical issues, insurance claims and other questions. I felt confident in knowing that Edmond and the El Dabe Law Firm team was there to help me with everything needed to get my bills and medical issues resolved. I felt I was in great hands:) Edmond and his office always kept me informed making it very comforting. I was so confident in there friendlyness,honesty,hard working and eager willingness to help I also referred 2 other friends to his firm which he also helped. thank you for being there:) If you choose Edmond I know he will do only his best to make sure you get the care you deserve in a great attorney

Needing a personal injury attorney was definitely a stressful time for me. I had never been involved in a car accident and didn't' even know where to begin seeking the help that i needed. I had a very positive experience with El Dabe Law Firm. Everyone at the firm is competent, compassionate, and best of all, very accessible when I had any question or concerns

Great Lawyer!
I hired Mr. El Dabe to handle an auto accident case for me and my wife. We had no idea how to handle the insurance company who kept giving us the run around, but Mr. El Dabe fought for us and assisted us in getting our car repaired immediately and getting us the medical attention we needed. I constantly recommend friends and family to Mr. El Dabe.

Great Attorney!
I recently was involved in an auto accident. I had never been in a car accident before and didn't know where to begin. Mr. El Dabe and his staff were very responsive and understanding when it came to handling my claim. Not only did they help me with my vehicle and rental, they provided excellent service throughout the entirety of my injury claim. I have recommended family and friends since my accident and they have all received the same quality experience with El Dabe Law Firm. Thanks again Edmond!

totally impressed
Excellent representation! If you need it done, this law firm is on top. Mr. El Dabe returns my calls the same day, and makes time to discuss my case. Better than my experience with other lawyers. His advice, so far, has been spot on. The paralegals at this firm are also right on top of the law and it's application to my case. Really impressed.

Edmond ElDabe was a very capable attorney who does not fool around. He was highly responsive and aggressively handled my case. When I had a question Mr. ElDabe was absolutely honest and would give me a straight answer, which is a quality that is hard to find in lawyers these days.
