THE CANLAS LAW GROUP IS VERY PROFESSIONAL AND PATIENT. THEY HAVE BEEN WITH ME EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. I PUT MY FAITH IN THEM AND THEY HAVE NOT LET ME DOWN. THEY ARE HANDLING MY ON GOING WORKMANS COMP CLAIM AND HAVE HELPED ME APPLY AND RECEIVE SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY. MY INJURIES ARE SEVERE AND THEY ARE FIGHTING AND GETTING ME THE SURGERIES I NEED TO GET BETTER AND POSSIBLY BE ABLE TO GET BACK TO WORK. THEY ARE VERY AGGRESSIVE AND I AM VERY HAPPY WITH THEIR PROGRESS SO FAR. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM TO ANYONE WHO IS LOOKING TO GET RESULTS THAT COUNT.

Great lawyer
Christopher Canlas and his team did an excellent job. When I had questions they would reassure me and help me understand in simple English what was going on. They were always very caring. Thank you for all you have done.

Wonderful representation!
I was already denied social security disability benefits a couple of time and I was really discouraged. I consulted with Canlas Law Group on a friend's recommendation and hired them to represent me. I suffer from memory loss and they were very patient and helpful and their staff helped me gather all the records needed for my claim. With their help and counsel I was approved for benefits at my hearing!

Knowledgeable and Aggressive. Great Attorney!
Mr. Canlas represented me in my Workers' Compensation case. He was very honest and worked hard to get me my benefits. When we settled my case I received a lot more money than I expected. He is a great attorney and I highly recommend him.
