I could not have chosen a better firm
Elliot, Brian and their team were fantastic in guiding, directing, and advising me through a less than pleasant event. The Accident Guys took care of everything! They were able to maximize my settlement and secure satisfactory compensation for my personal injury. The Accident Guys are THE guys!

First, I’d like to start off by saying that if I could give The Accident Guys 8 stars I would. I have never experienced so much professionalism and punctuality in my entire life. The lawyer that took on my case was Eliot M. Houman. He is the best of the best for the following reasons: 1. Eliot is a MAN OF HIS WORD. If Eliot says that he is going to do something, HE WILL. That is a priceless trait. 2. My accident took place in September 2016. Eliot scheduled me to see the investigator the following day after my accident. That is unheard of. 3. Eliot was very prompt! He answered all of my questions and returned all of my calls. I had many questions because I just moved to California from Boston and it was a very traumatizing experience. 4. He gave me updates about my case and took care of everything. He went out of his way to help me obtain the documents pertinent to my case. 5. He’s very honest. He walked me through my case and gave me great advice. 6. HE GENUINELY CARES ABOUT HIS CLIENTS! He frequently called me to ask how physical therapy was going. It’s those little things that mean the world to me and show me that this was more than just a case to him. I would advise that everyone go see Eliot because he is genuinely a great person. Not only Eliot was an amazing lawyer, the entire accident team was amazing, prompt and professional. I have already made one referral before my case closed and would encourage you to try them out as well!

Outstanding legal guidance and representation by Mr. Houman
I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Houman on my recent case. He is very wise, level-headed, and extremely knowledgeable of the laws. Mr. Houman was very reliable and extremely prompt in handling my case, and keeping me informed with any updates. He went out of his way with his guidance and support to help keep my mind at ease, and make the process more comfortable for me. Mr. Houman was very patient and thorough with answering all of my questions and helped guide me through any concerns. He did an excellent job with my representation and I couldn't be happier with the outcome of my settlement. I am very happy with my choice in hiring Mr. Houman, and highly recommend him and his expertise.

Friendly, professional, and helped us with our business contract in a very timely manner
My business partner and I needed an advisory agreement drafted for a new advisor to our startup. We reached out to Eliot per a recommendation from a friend. His price to draft the document was incredibly reasonable. Eliot was very professional and prompt and allowed us to go back and forth to create multiple drafts until we had a contract to our liking. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing formal contracts drafted for their business.

Highly recommended
Overall I am very pleased with the work Mr. Eliot Houman dedicated to my contract. He is a very proficient lawyer who promptly read over the details of the contact and gave clear explanations of the finer details that I myself had missed. I am in the medical field and understand how jargon can confuse "laymen" but Mr. Houman is very easy to understand. He also brought a part of the contract to my attention that if ignored may have hurt me in the future. Also compared to my past experience with lawyers, I sensed that this time my lawyer invested personally into his work and went beyond my expectations. I did not have to track him down to ask him questions as he was always readily available. Highly recommended lawyer, wish more could be like him.

Excellent work for Advisor Agreement
Eliot was very professional and forthcoming when helping us draft an advisory agreement for our company. Despite the advisory agreement seeming relatively standard and straightforward, Eliot carefully explained each provision and carefully took our requests into consideration. He was proactive in contacting us with new ideas, and our agreement was delivered, as promised, in a timely fashion.
