Best Lawyer I Have Ever Had
After hours of research trying to find a reliable attorney, I finally decided to contact Ron Makarem. I was not disappointed at all! He was able to quickly understand the problem I was having and I could tell right away that he is very knowledgeable lawyer. He provided strong legal counsel and was able to settle my case with a much better outcome than I expected. I will definitely call Ron again for any legal help I may need in the future.

Best of the best..
Mr. Makarem took very good care of my case I had in 2010 and it just came to an end this year. I am very satisfied with the outcome of my case and thankful for his help, patience and regard for my situation. He is as good as it gets, best of the best. he is very attentive, mindful, accomplished and obliging. I recommed this man and his firm above any other firm there is in LA. you can put your trust into Mr. Makarem.

The worst
I contacted Makarem & Associates specifically to hire Attorney Ron Makarem. After filling out the forms and calling the office, I was constantly given the run around by the answering service. No calls were retuned despite promises that he would call back. Finally, a consult was given and my case was accepted. However, no emails or phone calls are returned by Ron Makarem.

"I endorse this lawyer. Of all the lawyers I have ever endorsed, Ronnie is at the top of the list. He has obtained the largest settlements and verdicts that I have seen, and he does it ethically. Most impressive is that once he takes your case, his entire heart and emotions are yours for the duration of his representation, even if your case makes a turn for the worst. I have seen Ronnie take cases to trial that he knew was a likely loser, because he cared about his clients right to be heard in court. I give my highest endorsement to this lawyer."
